Click Here to Download the Book Reacher is back! A Wanted Man is a new masterpiece of suspense—from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child. Four people in a car, hoping to make Chicago by morning. One man driving, eyes on the road. Another man next to him, telling stories that don’t add up. A woman in the back, silent and worried. And next to her, a huge man with a broken nose, hitching a ride east to Virginia. An hour behind them, a man lies stabbed to death in an old pumping station. He was seen going in with two others, but he never came out. He has been executed, the knife work professional, the killers vanished. Within minutes, the police are notified. Within hours, the FBI descends, laying claim to the victim without ever saying who he was or why he was there. All Reacher wanted was a ride to Virginia. All he did was stick out his thumb. But he soon discovers he has hitched more than a ride. He has tied himself to a massive conspiracy that makes him a threat—to both sides at once. In Lee Child’s white-hot thriller, nothing is what it seems, and nobody is telling the truth. As the tension rises, the twists come fast and furious, keeping readers guessing and gasping until the explosive finale. A single story arc: 61 HOURS, WORTH DYING FOR and now A WANTED MAN. Simply a man trying to get to a warm, sexy voice he heard over the phone lines coming from Virginia.
Reviews My daughter put me onto Lee Child's Jack Reacher series. Though doubtful, I decided to see what he had to offer and read his first book (to me) 'Echo Burning'. I just completed reading Lee's 'A Wanted Man' and was totally captivated and am now solidly hooked!! Lee puts so many spins on his stories it is extremely difficult to put one of his books down. Though his work is fiction, we have many old military installations in this country the public is totally unaware of, and I found this story totally mind-grabbing, knowing our government rarely tells the public the truth about much of anything. This particular book was even more interesting because it dealt with areas I am very familiar with, ie. Kansas City and the area in Nebraska being described. While few people would know all the data that 'Jack' can recall at will, I still found it to be informational and was not bored with it; some reviews seemed to find fault with this. Don't we all wish we knew a Jack Reacher? He is awesome and our hero!! I can't wait to start on another of Lee Child's Reacher series.
I am a first reads winner! Score! I love REACHER....:) a most excellent 5 star read! Reacher, Reacher, Reacher, Let me tell you how I met my man… It all started with “The Killing Floor”. We met at a Bookstore, you know those brick and mortar places they used to have? He was large and slightly rumpled, we went for a ride and as he folded himself into my car, I couldn't help but wonder…who was this guy & can I have more some please? I don’t know what it is about this character that knocks me sideways…. Maybe somehow I know I would be safe with a guy like him at my side. A large, ex-military, slightly rumpled, slightly handsome “every man” kinda guy who carries a toothbrush in his pocket, Unless you get in his way that is. Reacher roams from town to town hitchhiking across the country & we get snippets of his past and present life up until now and some how this is enough but, we never really know where he is going or why, all I know is I Would follow Reacher… to any town. Anywhere. Anytime. This is the 17th book in this series and I can honestly say this book is just as thrilling, page turning, and “heartswooning” as the first one! We start out with two men in black suits following slightly behind a man in a green coat who goes into a concrete bunker, those two men come out but, the man in the green coat never does make it out…alive. And so starts the manhunt for the killers.
Reacher is on a freezing cold Nebraska highway hitching a ride to Virginia with a broken nose well into the night when he eventually gets picked up by a car with two men in front and a woman in back, and Reacher has yet again, unwittingly stumbled into trouble. With the help of special agent Julia Sorenson who has been called in on the case they eventually find and thrillingly punish the bad guys. Let go of the Tom Cruise thing people! Lee had nothing to do with who plays his character in his books. Look, there is just no one in all of Hollywood land who could ever play my man so, get over itâ€Ś:)
This was Lee Child at his best and of course vintage Jack Reacher...however I would have loved to see an impossible situation that Jack got out of by himself. Regardless Jack Reacher makes Superman look like a wimp and may even give Hercule Poirot a run for his money...the thinking man's Rambo and Judge Dredd rolled into one...dispensing justice his way!! Spoiler alert...sad that he'll get to Virginia and miss the girl...I hope he finds her soon...nonetheless love the story arc!!
