Reviews

Having survived the near-cataclysmic ending to 61 Hours, Jack Reacher is on the prowl again. It's only a few days later, still bitterly cold, and Reacher is in Nebraska, where he finds a community ruled by a family of crooks. The Duncan clan specializes in beatings, murder, child molestation, and smuggling. They are also protected by a bunch of ex-linemen from the University of Nebraska, who are large, strong, and not very smart. However evil and sadistic the Duncans are, they are small fish in the world of smuggling and fearful that their sleazy empire will collapse. Thus, when a totally annoyed Reacher starts to dismember both it and the goons, the Duncans become increasingly desperate, calling for outside help from the Mafia and sordid Middle Eastern partners. With Reacher outnumbered about 20 to one, the odds just don't seem fair-to the bad guys, that is. VERDICT Reacher's growing number of fans will enjoy this one. Unless, of course, they went to the University of Nebraska. Highly recommended. [See Prepub Alert, LJ 5/1/10.]-Robert Conroy, Warren, MI (c) Copyright 2010.

In Child's exciting 15th thriller featuring one-man army Jack Reacher (after 61 Hours), Reacher happens into a situation tailor-made for his blend of morality and against-the-odds heroics. While passing through an isolated Nebraska town, the ex-military cop persuades the alcoholic local doctor to treat Eleanor Duncan, who's married to the abusive Seth, for a "nosebleed." Reacher later breaking Seth's nose prompts members of the Duncan clan, who are involved in an illegal trafficking scheme, to seek revenge. Reacher, who easily disposes of two hit men sent to get him, winds up trying to solve a decades-old case concerning a missing eight-year-old girl. While Child convincingly depicts his hero's superhuman abilities, he throws in a few lucky breaks to enable the outnumbered Reacher to survive. Crisp, efficient prose and well-rounded characterizations (at least of the guys in the white hats) raise this beyond other attempts to translate the pulse-pounding feel of the Die Hard films into prose.
