(Jack Reacher 16)
Man får vad man förväntar sig (om man läst några böcker i serien). Det är spännande. Reacher är överlägsen. Lite våld. Lite kärlek. Lite Sherlock. Tidsfördriv.
"Plenty of action....much more of a whodunit than anything Lee Child has previously written...The gripping plot and breathtaking violence ensure it is difficult to put down." * Evening Standard * "Jack Reacher has long since earned his prominent place in the pantheon of cool,smart-talking American heroes....Shakes up the status quo by delivering the Reacher creation myth...stealthily funny...this book is really about the man himself." -- Janet Maslin * New York Times * "Just when you thought it couldn't possibly get any better, Lee Child pulls Jack Reacher out of another hole and, bang, he produces nothing short of a thriller masterpiece...Here, we get what we've been waiting for...the story of how Reacher became Reacher." -- Henry Sutton * Mirror * "Child on top of his game. It could well be his best book yet...The paradox of Reacher is that he is both a great big grizzly bear of a fighter...and a thinker, both Schwarzenegger and Socrates. Make love and war is his credo." * Independent * "With its revelations and its bonk-fest, it's an unabashed fan-pleaser, but also a timely, reassuring wallow in the undiluted essence of Reacher." * Telegraph *
