This book OMG, my heart is still beating so fast as though it s going to jump out of my chest What an adrenaline pumping ride Ok, take a deep breathAlright, I will keep this short as I know that there s no way I can write this review without going into detail, in which will ultimately give the story all away So, no spoilers here.Once again, Lee Child dazzles me with this top notch story, filled with the thrill of the unforeseeable events and dangerous situations that Reacher had to face This installment contains strong elements of mystery, suspense, and thriller, all rolled into one The book started off great, with a heart pounding abduction scene, which had me hooked right off the bat As the story went on, there were so many thoughts and questions racing through my mind and every exciting turn of events made my head spin I can tell you that this book kept me on the edge of my seat for almost the entire story.And as always, Jack Reacher has yet to fail me With his intelligence, fearlessness, confidence, toughness, determination, and competence, he s definitely made himself one of the most kick ass alpha heroes I ve ever read And the best part of this book was the scene where he finished the unfinished task, which should have been done ten years ago It was one hell of an execution Quick and certain No room for mercy here I stood up Water sluiced off me I staggered a couple of steps Heard Leon Garber in my head What doesn t kill you only makes you stronger. All in all, this was an engaging read that gripped me and didn t let go until the very last page I enjoyed it immensely Persuader is the seventh installment in Jack Reacher series It can be read as a standalone

    Jack Reacher is often found minding his own business when something happens right in front of him that propels him into another mission In this case, he s walking down a street in Boston when he sees a dead man or at least a man who is supposed to have been dead for ten years And if anyone should know that the guy is supposed to be dead, it s Reacher.The man in question, a particularly nasty character named Quinn, had crossed paths with Reacher back when Reacher was still in the army Reacher Jack Reacher is often found minding his own business when something happens right in front of him that propels him into another mission In this case, he s walking down a street in Boston when he sees a dead man or at least a man who is supposed to have been dead for ten years And if anyone should know that the guy is supposed to be dead, it s Reacher.The man in question, a particularly nasty character named Quinn, had crossed paths with Reacher back when Reacher was still in the army Reacher supervised an investigation of Quinn which went horribly wrong and left Reacher with some deep emotional scars To see Quinn now, obviously alive, stuns Reacher and he now feels obligated to clean up some unfinished business.It s otherwise somewhat difficult to review this book, or even to describe the setup, without giving away something that occurs early on and that readers would be best left to discover for themselves Suffice it to say that, like most of the books in this series, the action is hard hitting and Reacher will literally be pushed to his limits before all is said and done The setting is particularly good the villains are particularly villainous, and all in all, this was a great book to reread while in social isolation

    I am totally loving this series Although I think it must be best NOT to read them back to back because then the formula wears through This is a good one tense, claustrophobic, and non stop action Two quibbles the romance between Reacher and Duffy seemsunmotivated Like the author says to himself, And this is the place where I start the romance, and proceeded to have Reacher make out with the nearest available female character Also, the last 20 percent of the novel seems unduly l I am totally loving this series Although I think it must be best NOT to read them back to back because then the formula wears through This is a good one tense, claustrophobic, and non stop action Two quibbles the romance between Reacher and Duffy seemsunmotivated Like the author says to himself, And this is the place where I start the romance, and proceeded to have Reacher make out with the nearest available female character Also, the last 20 percent of the novel seems unduly longand a bit confusing Some tighter editing would have sharpened it up nicely I love it when a plan comes together

    This bad ass walks around with an anaconda in his pants apparently, that s a type of revolver but it s still pretty impressive He has an AOL device hidden in his shoe He says nothing a lot So does everyone else in this novel I m not cut out for crime fiction It bugs me This bad ass walks around with an anaconda in his pants apparently, that s a type of revolver but it s still pretty impressive He has an AOL device hidden in his shoe He says nothing a lot So does everyone else in this novel I m not cut out for crime fiction It bugs me

    4 stars, perhaps a bit .This and Echo Burning are by far Child s best books in the series so far The pacing is terrific, mostly The dialogue and action are very good, mostly The climax is good, but too drawn out in parts The plot is very, very clever This would have been 5 stars if not for Child s momentary returns to excessive detail and repetitive proseAs usual with my reviews, please first read the publisher s blurb summary of the book Thank you.

    Gigantic hobo detective Jack Reacher once again wanders intotrouble than any happy go lucky wanderer would reasonably expect This time, after encountering a ghost from his past, a man named Quinn who should be dead, Reacher gets involved in an undercover DEA operation to take the man and his smuggling operation down Reacher poses as a gun for hire in order to infiltrate Quinn s operation The DEA wants him to go in and recover an agent who went missing and is presumably held captive Rea Gigantic hobo detective Jack Reacher once again wanders intotrouble than any happy go lucky wanderer would reasonably expect This time, after encountering a ghost from his past, a man named Quinn who should be dead, Reacher gets involved in an undercover DEA operation to take the man and his smuggling operation down Reacher poses as a gun for hire in order to infiltrate Quinn s operation The DEA wants him to go in and recover an agent who went missing and is presumably held captive Reacher is going in for personal reasons Quinn was supposed to be dead and Reacher is going to make sure he stays that way Child s Reacher series is fairly reliable After reading a couple, you pretty much know what you re going to get, and you keep readingbecause what you want is what Child delivers That is, action, thrills, a little sex, despicable villains and a big ass juggernaut of justice willing to crack skulls and shoot people until all the bad guys are dead Persuader is no different, and that s a good thing Replace any of the items above with Reacher learning to crochet or taking a yoga class and no I would not want to read that The Reacher novels are, as Zwolf says over in The Mighty Blow Hole, the literary equivalent of a BDAM, or Big Dumb Action Movie I have to agree and, by the way, he also thinks that Dolph Lundgren would be an awesome film Reacher Persuader is a BDAM, that s for BDAM sure, and it s a heck of a lot of fun You do have to be able to overlook a certain amount of goofiness, however This goofiness is stuff that s pretty consistent with Child s other Reacher books For example, dialogues often have that rapid fire back and forth Dragnet quality that is sometimes unintentionally hilarious Child doesn t write convincingly about army life, cop life or guns During his investigations, Reacher often seems to just stumble through it pulling some of the most far fetched subterfuges, like view spoiler flipping a car over to simulate a car wreck, which is not in itself far fetched, but he still had to keep the car looking somewhat okay, so he put coats on the pavement to keep the roof from scratching And he almost couldn t get the car flipped back over hide spoiler and his investigative methods often include such subtle techniques as breaking a guy s neck and shooting a guy in the head I often wonder if Reacher really thinks thing through first.So if you re looking for a clever, delicately nuanced thriller with a plot as tangled a spider s web, Persuader ain t it Persuader is about as subtle as a six feet five, two hundred and fifty pound ex military policeman can be It does, however, offer a good amount of effective suspense thrown in with the action, and Child is quite good at pacing his novels.Ultimately, the most satisfying aspect of Persuader and the Reacher novels overall is the fact that Child has a talent for creating some of the most evil, repulsive, despicably vile bad guys, all who receive suitably brutal comeuppances courtesy of Jack Reacher It may be a bit of wish fulfillment on my part but I like seeing bullies put in their place, and so does Reacher I don t really care about the little guy I just hate the big guy I hate big smug people who think they can get away with things. Persuader s an effective thriller and a long as you don t take the minor gaffes too seriously it s a lot of fun 3.5 stars, rounded to 4
