Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • THE BLOCKBUSTER JACK REACHER SERIES THAT INSPIRED TWO MAJOR MOTION PICTURES AND THE STREAMING SERIES REACHER

Jack Reacher is back! The “utterly addictive” (The New York Times) series continues as acclaimed author Lee Child teams up with his brother, Andrew Child, fellow thriller writer extraordinaire.

“One of the many great things about Jack Reacher is that he’s larger than life while remaining relatable and believable. The Sentinel shows that two Childs are even better than one.”—James Patterson

As always, Reacher has no particular place to go, and all the time in the world to get there. One morning he ends up in a town near Pleasantville, Tennessee.

But there’s nothing pleasant about the place.

In broad daylight Reacher spots a hapless soul walking into an ambush. “It was four against one” . . . so Reacher intervenes, with his own trademark brand of conflict resolution.

The man he saves is Rusty Rutherford, an unassuming IT manager, recently fired after a cyberattack locked up the town’s data, records, information . . . and secrets. Rutherford wants to stay put, look innocent, and clear his name.

Reacher is intrigued. There’s more to the story. The bad guys who jumped Rutherford are part of something serious and deadly, involving a conspiracy, a cover-up, and murder—all centered on a mousy little guy in a coffee-stained shirt who has no idea what he’s up against.

Rule one: if you don’t know the trouble you’re in, keep Reacher by your side.

    Not really up to Reacher previous standards. Extremely wordy and verbose. Save your money.

    Wordy, yet efficient. A thriller fishing wide for the biggest catch. Guess that’s the point. And why we keep following Reacher down the road…
  • Sentinel is great.

    Great read, couldn’t put it down after I started. I don’t understand the negative comments because it moved fast and kept me interested throughout the entire story.

    Good beginning and end. Totally lost in the middle trying to follow the plot. Not up to the level I expect from Lee Child. Hope this is not the end of an amazing series about a man all real men dream they could be.

    After several pages into this it was plain there was a new writer. Same Reacher character but just enough differences to make it slightly off and kind of weird, disconcerting. Definitely not as good as Lee Child historically. I’ll try one more and may have to move on to other authors. Kind of like when Clancy passed and they’ve had other authors continue with his characters.
  • Not A Good Transition

    That did not seem like a Lee Child at all: too rushed, sloppy dialogue, clunky plot. I hope the second book is better. It is so sad, really. I really enjoyed the Reacher series. Lee Child got better with each book. It is not like his brother is a bad writer, but he is not the master of suspense I have become accustomed to reading.
