Armchair Novel Review: A Wanted Man by Lee Child

A Wanted Man
A Jack Reacher Novel
by #1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child

Hardcover, 416 pages

Jack Reacher is a fascinating character. Former military police, he now goes where the roads take him. He lives unplugged and off the grid taking life as it comes. His senses are razor sharp. Or at least they generally are. In A Wanted Man Jack has a freshly busted nose that he has set with silver duct tape and he can't smell a thing. An imposing figure thumbing a ride, after an hour and a half someone picks him up. Now he's in a full car and nothing makes sense. He might not be able to smell anything, but he knows when he's being lied to.

Jack finds himself in a fast paced thrill ride and the bodies are stacking up. Nothing and nobody are as they seem. Lee Child proves himself to be the master of the tightly scripted procedural thriller where the twists and turns come fast and hard.

A brilliant book.
