Jack Reacher gets off the bus in 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.
This book served the purpose that I needed it to, entertaining me fully and keeping me actively wanting to know what was going on. I thoroughly enjoyed the plot and the narrative worked well to keep me guessing and wanting to know even more.
Reacher found himself involved in something he didn’t want to be involved in. Yet he stayed. Rusty Rutherford was a nice guy – average, down to earth. An IT person in a town which had been cyber attacked, so Rusty was fired and now the bad guys were sure he had what they wanted.
Could Reacher sort out the mess without anyone else being killed? Rule one: if you don’t know the trouble you’re in, keep Reacher by your side.
A good read. A little high tech for Reacher, but worthwhile. Recommended.
The book is well written and the characters are interesting. Jack Reacher hitches a ride and gets out in a small Tennessee town which was the destination of his ride. Reacher immediately gets into trouble by rescuing a man that is being attacked by a group of men. The story is non-stop action and intrigue.
The first Jack Reacher book in which Lee Child writes with his younger brother (Andrew Child). Definitely better than the previous book as our drifter’s background draws him into spotting an ambush and protecting the victim. Some of the key characters were a little under developed and the plot a bit too complex. Nonetheless still a good ride.
