I have to say I am never disappointed when I read a Jack Reacher novel. I picked up One Shot by Lee Child because I wanted to keep working on series I am in the middle of. Plus Jack Reacher is a serious candidate for book boyfriend even if he would drive me crazy. There’s just something about him.
In One Shot Reacher ends up in Indiana (my neighbor state!) because of a shooting. A shooting with 5 victims and one expert sniper. Of course this is a Lee Child novel and nothing is ever as cut and dry as it appears. Thank god! There were twists and turns and winding roads. That’s an inside joke if you’ve read the book! I’m pretty good at figuring out the who dun its. I enjoy figuring out (unless its really, really obvious then not so much) who was behind the sinister plot. I was pretty cocky with One Shot. I won’t go into specifics but the end of the book caught me! And I loved it!
Jack Reacher did not disappoint. He is always going to be Jack Reacher. He had a good cast of supporting characters in One Shot. I particularly liked Cash. Reacher and Cash had a very small interaction with each other over the scope of the whole book but they made me smile during tense parts. I didn’t really care for Helen Rodin and I’m not sure why. I just think that she was kind of a bland character.
One Shot by Lee Child was another great addition to the series. I have enjoyed each and every one of these novels and I’m excited to continue with the series. I doubt that I wait very long to start the next one. I think Jack Reacher is one series I’d like to be caught up on! If you like action packed thrillers with such thorough logic that there is very little room for holes or errors then you should give Lee Child’s books a try.
