(Jack Reacher 25)The edge-of-your-seat, heart-in-mouth new Jack Reacher thriller for 2021 - his 25th adventure. No one's bigger than Jack Reacher. Jack Reacher hitches a ride to a sleepy no-name town outside Nashville, Tennessee. He plans to grab a cup of coffee and move right along. Not going to happen. The town has been shut down by a cyber attack. At the centre of it all, whether he likes it or not, is Rusty Rutherford. He's an average IT guy, but he knows more than he thinks. As the bad guys move in on Rusty, Reacher moves in on them . . . And now Rusty knows he's protected, he's never going to leave the big man's side. Reacher might just have to stick around and find out what the hell's gone wrong . . . and then put it right, like only he can. *** 'Jack Reacher is today's James Bond, a thriller hero we can't get enough of.' Ken Follett 'If you haven't read any Jack Reacher, you have a treat in store . . . a hitchhiker without a phone, a one-man force for good.' - The Times 'A contemporary version of the knight in shining armour . . . Reacher is a mythic figure.' Literary Review 'Jack Reacher is a wonderfully epic hero; tough, taciturn, yet vulnerable... Irresistible.' People 'Jack Reacher has long since earned his prominent place in the pantheon of cool, smart-talking American heroes.' New York Times _________ Although the Jack Reacher novels can be read in any order, The Sentinel is the 25th in the series. And be sure not to miss Reacher's newest adventure, no.27, No Plan B! ***OUT NOW***

Har läst några av Lee Childs böcker om Jack Reacher. Lättsmält och underhållande som de tidigare böckerna. Det är lite roligt att se hur karaktären utvecklas över tid och tar till sig viss teknik trots allt. Det finns alltid en eller flera bihandlingar och storyn gör vissa krumbukter som gör att det inte direkt går att avgöra vem som är the bad guy.

I loved The Sentinel! Classic Reacher, great story. Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant. * Conn Iggulden * The Sentinel shows that two Childs are even better than one. * James Patterson * The one man revenge machine seems revitalised. Great stuff. * Sun * Thoroughly entertaining . . . when the world is crumbling, it's good to have some of Reacher's brutal certainties back. * The Times * It's great to be back in Reacher's company in a world where the bad guys get what's coming to them. A smooth transition for a much-loved character. * Observer * The collaboration here produces vintage Reacher. * Financial Times * Reacher is satisfyingly ice cold in combat and full of good human feelings when necessary. It works. * Literary Review * Lots of action . . . one of the most inventive action sequences in recent memory . . . [The Sentinel] continues the series without any sense that there's now a coauthor. In a year of drastic change, fans will welcome the consistency. * Publishers Weekly * Fresh, perfectly plotted, and packed with action, The Sentinel is one of the year's best, must-read thrillers . . . and proves that this series is primed to continue on at the highest level for many years to come. * The Real Book Spy * The Sentinel is a butt-kicking, take-no-prisoners thriller that satisfies on every page. * The Providence Journal * If this novel is a harbinger of what's to come, then Jack is in good hands. * Booklist * The family firm is in decent hands * The Times *
