Ice because the FBI always always takes care of its own and because this woman is not just another agent Reacher and the woman join forces against seemingly hopeless odds to outwit their captors and escape But the FBI thinks Jack is one of the kidnappers and when they close in the Bureau snipers will be shooting to ki 35★“ Extreme violence awesome force Whoever did that I wouldn’t want him to get mad at me that’s for damn sure’”The “whoever” here was Jack Reacher and that pretty much sums up the tone of this long ‘adventure’ I’ve read a couple of Child’s Jack Reacher novellas and short stories but this is the first full length novel It's #2 in the series although they can be read in any orderPlenty of action some of it suspend disbelief worthy I have to say a little bit of character background mostly Reacher’s and lessons than I cared for in weaponry and which handgun suits which kind of hand and which rifle shoots how far or obliterates how much Reacher stops to help a young woman with her dry cleaning while she’s limping along with a crutch when he’s caught up in her kidnapping by a trio of not very nice fellas with a van He’s got no idea what’s happening but being than a pretty face he uickly figures out all kinds of things about her her identity and about the men She doesn’t seem uite as surprised as she should and the men seem a little amateurish It’s a long haul across country for them all with no indication of which way they’re going or why or what their final destination is Meanwhile we learn a bit about Reacher’s background and his powers of deduction Raised in a military family and serving for several years himself he has a soldier’s instincts and bearing And uite a bearing it is too 6’5” 220 lbs solid muscle and uick reflexes Well trained experienced with lots of service medals as well But he missed out on a lot He’s always been able to figure out where he is and what’s going on but back “home” he’s at a loss“ he’d lived and served all over the world most of his life Outside the United States It had left him knowing his own country about as well as the average seven year old knows it So he couldn’t decode the subtle rhythms and feel and smells of America as well as he wanted to”For him he might as well be in a foreign country But with weapons he really is right at home and I did feel as if the author could have left a lot of the information in an appendix rather than fill so many pages with it Something he does know is what time it is wherever he is “ he knew what time it was to within about twenty seconds It was an old skill born of many long wakeful nights on active service When you’re waiting for something to happen you close your body down like a beach house in winter and you let your mind lock on to the steady pace of the passing seconds It’s like suspended animation It saves energy and it lifts the responsibility for your heartbeat away from your unconscious brain and passes it on to some kind of a hidden clock”Handy As for his other skills I’d sure like to see someone actually do this trick And then pick a lock“Reacher nodded and finished his coffee Sucked the fork from the stew clean Bent one of the prongs right out and put a little kink into the end with pressure from his thumbnail It made a little hook”Ok I suspended disbelief and read on but really it was too long and too grisly for me I uite like Child’s short choppy style of writing action seuences while some of his descriptions can get almost poetic There’s a lot of blood and guts and torture which will appeal to a lot of readers I just like a good story with interesting characters – I don’t want to see the horrific brutality thanksThis is told in the third person which is necessary as there are times when Reacher isn’t with the kidnap victim and we need to know what’s happening with herI’ll no doubt read some of the series but I think I’d better let the blood dry first The good thing about a series is that you know he lives to fight another day No guarantees about anybody else of course
