Lee Child’s “Jack Reacher” never backs down from a fight and that has been his main fame for the last seventeen parts that we have heard in the voice of Dick Hill. Lee tries to change the pattern a bit this time though the old one still remains a hit among the readers.
Its Jack’s past that troubles him this time as he takes on another mission and new enemies. The mission takes Jack from South Dakota to Virginia as he is called to the headquarters for the task.
Major Susan the commanding officer wants to have a chat, that’s what he is told on the phone in a heavy voice. Reacher thus in a routine manner goes to the office and finds old enemies and Susan missing of course.
There is just one thing that Reacher cannot do i.e run away from danger and threat. He is ready for a fight but this time things are not easy for him as the agency thinks that he is behind the issue of the missing boss. Secondly the old enemies hit him with something that proves to be too personal for him. Lee’s novels like Blue Moon and Killing Floor the main character is again on the run and to his tragedy he is without resources as well.
There is no one who could clear his name from the list of those who are the prime suspects in the case. He runs for his life not because he is a coward but because it appears for him his duty to take the bad guys all the time. It is the crime that he hates and the state that he loves.
