Book 9, Jack Reacher

Description

Film edition of One Shot, Lee Child's 9th Reacher thriller, to tie in with the release of the movie, Jack Reacher, starring Tom Cruise, on Boxing Day 2012.

Six shots. Five dead.

A heartland city thrown into terror. But within hours the cops have it solved. A slam-dunk case. Apart from one thing. The accused gunman refuses to talk except for a single phrase:

Get Jack Reacher for me.

Reacher lives off the grid. He's not looking for trouble. But sometimes trouble looks for him. What could connect the ex-military cop to this psychopathic killer?

Publishers Weekly Review

23 May 2005 – The final sentence of Child's ninth suspenser (after The Enemy)—"Then he could buy a pair of shoes and be just about anywhere before the sun went down"—is quintessential Jack Reacher, the rugged ex-army cop who practically defines the word "loner" and kicks ass with the best of 'em. In the book's gripping opening, five people are killed when a shooter opens fire in a small unnamed Indiana city. But when ex-infantry specialist James Barr is apprehended, he refuses to talk, saying only, "Get Jack Reacher for me." But Reacher's already en route; having seen a news story on the shooting, he heads to the scene with disturbing news of his own: " done this before. And once was enough." Nothing is what it seems in the riveting puzzle, as vivid set pieces and rapid-fire dialogue culminate in a slam-bang showdown in the villains' lair. (And what villains: a quintet of Russian émigrés, the stuff of everybody's worst nightmares, led by a wily 80-year-old who makes Freddy Krueger look like Little Lord Fauntleroy.) As usual, Child makes the most of Reacher's dry wit, cut-to-the-chase psychology and stubborn taciturnity—in short, this is a vintage double play for author and leading man.

Customer Reviews

Jack Reacher ...Cruise! ....Big faux pas big time!

I buy quite a few hard copy and online of Jack Reacher books and probably still will but to Lee Child. "Cruise" is not by any length of any stretch of the imagination Jack. He's a midget! you are ruining the mental picture of the tall lean crusader of the road. Sorry agree you sold out.

Cruise, no way.

Cruise can not possibly fill Reachers left boot, in any way.

who put Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher. Big mistake. Jack Reacher is nearly 7foot tall and built like a brick sh t house. Very disappointing. Big Lee Childs fan. Next time pick somebody that fits the roll
