Nebraska - and Jack Reacher, huge, hulking and with a freshly busted nose, is still trying to hitch a ride east to Virginia. He's picked up by three strangers - two men and a woman.

I promise this is the last Jack Reacher novel I review. But given that this is the year that the movie of one of Child’s novels is being released - starring that hopelessly miscast pretender Tom Cruise - there will be much hype around all things Reacher. Last year’s prequel The Affair showed Child back to his best and A Wanted Man isn’t far off it. My mate felt there wasn’t enough Jack dealing to the bad guys in it, but I’m a girl and a little bit of sensitive Jack was fine by me. Basically it’s the same premise - Jack encounters bad guys and vulnerable woman; Jack, through smarts, bravery and physical strength, overcomes bad guys and saves vulnerable woman; Jack moves on. What’s not to love?

I always look forward to the next Jack Reacher story. They never fail to entertain me!

Go Kerre! Spot on review, including the comment about the Jack-wannabe who never-will-be.

I love Lee Child Too... However after seeing the shorts for teh movie will be boycotting that - has really ruined the whole "Reacher" for me. With you on that Kerre :)

Having only just started getting in to the Jack Reacher series, this review makes me look forward to reading many more. Thoroughly enjoyed finding out about and listening to the music of Blind Blake, the musician was looking for information on in the first novel, so let's hope there are more introductions to 'lost' artists as a bonus also!

Lee Child books are always a good read, shocked to discover Tom Cruise has been cast in the role of Jack Reacher!

I have read almost all of the Reacher novels, and enjoyed them, so am looking forward to reading this latest one. Re the movie comments - I can't picture Cruise as Reacher - that's just so wrong.

A huge fan of Lee Child and Reacher. Have read the book and as always loved it. ho in their rignht mind thought Tom Cruise was Reacher!!! Looking forward to the next book.

This looks great, looking forward to reading it. Won't be watching the movie though!

Absolutely loved this book. Yet again Reacher sorted out the baddies. A lot of my male friends hate Jack Reacher books - maybe the way the book's written appeals more to females. Who cares - I love him.

Love all his books, always checking out if any new ones are coming up. I also can not understand how they could cast Tom Cruise as Reacher in the movie, he is almost the opposite of how Reacher is described in every single book!

have been slowly buying all Jack Reacher titles as Lee Child makes them so readable that you can always notice new points you might have missed .This is on my Xmas list so am trying hard not to discover too much of the plot before-hand .Am so looking forward to curling up boxing day with my new book

Reacher

I also found this book a bit slower than the rest but still a good read. I can not wait to see the movie but am disapointed Tom Cruise is cast as Reacher. I like Melissa suggestion of Daniel Craig.

a wanted man

This is a simmering, slow burning book- where Jack Reacher slowly and tortuously works out who the bad guys are. Then explodes into what he does best and starts a one man war to save himself, his friends and coincidently does some good for his country. Then, as usual, Jack moves on. A slower paced book to start, but once he gets going he quickly adds to the body count.

A Wanted Man by Lee Child

I felt this book was a lot slower in parts and more sensitive to a female reader. In saying that, the book also had it's twists and turns to keep one in suspense. I have read all the books so far and would still recommend reading this book to anyone that likes the previous books.

We love Reacher!

Can't wait to read this last book. Not sure about the movie, your right about the cast of Tom Cruise???? Not even close. Who should it have been? Vin Diesel, Daniel Craig...

James Caviezel who stars as John Reese in Person of Interest is my pick.
