Child, Lee. The Hard Way.
Another Jack Reacher action thriller. I'm reading my way through our library's available copies of this suspenseful action series. This my 4th and I've also finished another that I need to review. There are 12 total Jack Reacher novels (so far), which makes me happy, but the library doesn't have them all so I may have to resort to inter-library loan. I discovered Lee Child by happy accident a couple of months ago while browsing through the stacks and was well and truly hooked on them.
Observant as always, Jack Reacher, sitting in a coffee shop in New York, casually watches a man approach and get into a car. He is later singled out as the only person who may have seen the man who has kidnapped a mother and her young daughter and is recruited by the wealthy husband to aid in finding the kidnapper. Hopefully, before it is too late.
Several things about the kidnapping bother Reacher, but he agrees to help, on his own terms. As events become muddier and it appears that it is too late for the mother and child, Reacher becomes even more intensely involved in an attempt to bring the guilty parties to justice. Not necessarily in legal terms.
Fast-moving and suspenseful, The Hard Way is a great read if you like this genre. :) I do.
