Jack Reacher, in the 7th novel, returns in this explosive tale of an undercover operation set up by the FBI to rescue an agent investigating Zachary Beck, a reclusive tycoon believed to be a kingpin in the drug trade. The novel begins with a bang as Reacher rescues Beck's son from a staged kidnapping in order to get close to his father--and trace the connection between Beck and Quinn, a former army intelligence officer who tried to sell blueprints of a secret weapon to Iraq but was murdered before he could pull it off. Or so Reacher thinks, until he spots Quinn in the crowd at a concert in Boston.
If you're a die hard Reacher fan I am sure you'll more than enjoy. Personally I find his Child's writing style abrupt without taking advantage of the romance of word. I get a headache trying to read his style.
I took a break from the Reacher books to give myself some distance from Child's writing style. Took a break and and glad to be back. I'm always looking forward to finding out something new about Reacher in between the story line.
Again, I like how the story starts - right in the middle of the action and we're left to figure out how they got there.
