Book Description

Mar 2012 Jack Reacher (Book 9)
Six shots. Five dead. A heartland city thrown into terror. But within hours the cops have it solved. A slam-dunk case. Apart from one thing. The accused gunman refuses to talk except for a single phrase: Get Jack Reacher for me. Reacher lives off the grid. He's not looking for trouble. But sometimes trouble looks for him. What could connect the ex-military cop to this psychopathic killer?

Amazon Review

Lee Child's Jack Reacher thrillers always have remarkably inventive setups, and One Shot is true to form. A sniper, Barr, kills five people with six shots and leaves a clear trail of evidence; arrested, he asks for Reacher. When Reacher was a military policeman, politics stopped him pursuing Barr--he cannot understand why Barr would ask for him and Barr has been beaten in jail until he cannot remember himself. Yet, for Reacher, the loner who looks at things differently from civilians, the story does not add up--Barr should not have got himself caught, should not even have fired from where he did.

Child is a master of the perverse solution to the set of questions no-one ever asked in quite that way before, and the macho yet sensitive Reacher is one of the more interesting series characters in thrillers. One Shot is a smart set of puzzles which strings the reader along to false conclusions and a sense of real danger. It also, like its hero, has a heart. --Roz Kaveney --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

"'Jack Reacher is irresistible.'" Observer "'Hot, indomitable... knockout.'" New York Times "'The thing about Lee Child's books is that you can't put the damn things down.'" Independent on Sunday "Lee Child is often mistaken for a US writer, so skilfully and enthusiastically has he embraced the idiom of the American thriller ... One of the genre's finest practitioners." Independent "The Jack Reacher series... all hugely exciting, and knowledgeable about weapons and technology. They exude a powerful sense of right and wrong ... We've seen him as a righter of wrongs and always as God's gift to women." Literary Review --This text refers to the Unknown Binding edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Child's best - but still good enough! 25 Oct 2006
By still searching TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Nobody should pick up a Jack Reacher novel and expect great literature. I might be wrong but I suspect that that isn't Lee Child's purpose. What you get instead is a good dollop of wish-fulfilment, good writing, beautiful, intelligent and feisty females who are either integral to the development of the plot or just along for the ride, and implausible story lines! One Shot is no exception - why change a winning formula? In Reacher, Child has created a character who is, perhaps, not quite the guy who every other guy wants to be (and with whom every woman wants to be?), well, at least not permanently. But it might be nice for a couple of weeks to: be able to kick ass as effectively as he does, to never be wrong, to be able, correctly, to second guess all the villains' moves and then to ride off into the sunset with a clear conscience and no dangling strings! But in common with all of its predecessors, and despite the implausibility of the plot, One Shot doesn't last a few days let alone a few weeks, it's a real page-turner. In a genre full of world weary, divorced, alcoholic, guilt ridden cops Reacher is a breath of fresh air - the closest thing to Casey Ryback outside of the movies!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brainy Action and Imaginative Investigation 16 July 2005
By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover
If you haven't yet read a Jack Reacher novel by Lee Child, you have a great treat waiting for you. One Shot is a great place to start.
As the book opens, a sniper moves into position in a crowded urban area . . . and quickly kills five people. The scene is like one that we've read about and watched on television all too often in the last few years. You'll feel it in your gut.
The police move in quickly and do an exemplary job of tracking down the sniper, one James Barr. Barr's finger prints are everywhere and there's lots of trace evidence. While his attorney interviews him, Barr stands mute . . . except to tell his attorney to get Reacher.
Reacher is soon on his way . . . not because anyone can find him . . . but because he hears about Barr's actions . . . and comes running (at least as much as one can run by taking a bus). Barr has killed before and Reacher has promised to take him out if it happens again.
But circumstances aren't what they seem, and Reacher finds himself drawn into helping Barr's attorney check out the evidence. More and more the evidence doesn't make sense. What does it mean?
In the background, mysterious figures track Reacher and try to derail his efforts.
Reacher is one of those iconic characters who define new dimensions for fiction. Reacher is an ex-MP who wants to stay off-the-map and live his life in peace . . . with occasional interesting interludes with beautiful ladies. He travels light. When his clothes get dirty, he buys new clothes and throws the old ones away. He always registers under assumed names (obscure baseball players from the 1930s are his favorite choice), pays cash and usually moves on the next day. He combines the bravado and battle skills of James Bond with his taste for ladies, but operates more like Dr.

3.0 out of 5 stars Standard SOP's 30 April 2012
By Morlech
Format:Kindle Edition
In 'One Shot' his journeys take him to Indiana, where a former army acquantaince is in trouble for killing five people with a sniper's rifle. The evidence against the suspect is damning, yet Reacher finds one loose point in the investigation, and the whole case is blown apart.This story is full of suspense, and moves along at a good pace. Although set in a small town, it is ideal for the story at hand, especially with a character of Reacher's magnitude. Reacher is very smooth and sleek in the sense that he is a supremely confident man, not in arrogant way, but in a matter-of-fact way. This makes the character fascinating and endearing.Saying that its Standard Operating Procedure with childs now to bang out a decent read time after time , I guess my expectations are a little high.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Shot in the Dark 19 Jun 2007
Format:Paperback
Jack Reacher is back again and this time the dangerous loner must investigate the sniper killing of 5 innocent people. It seems that the man who did it should have been jailed years earlier, but Reacher was unable to get the evidence together. However, things are not always as they seem and even as the police stop investigating believing they have a slam dunk, Reacher starts to wonder if there is sometimes too much evidence.

'One Shot' is pure hokum on the highest level. It is a manly book about men, and this is personified by the character of Reacher himself. As a fan of the Reacher books I have come to love his strong and uncompromising approach to justice and he is on top form here. The case that he is investigating here is also a good one as it has many twists and turns. The book is enjoyable and does not outstay its welcome. I would argue that some of the book reads too much like fantasy, but as a silly action thriller, this is tops.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh My God! 1 April 2005
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Oh My God! How good are these books? I love Lee Child and I equally love Jack Reacher. This series of books are guaranteed to grip and hold you for the duration. Child has created the perfect (anti) hero and when a new book comes out it is the highlight of my year. Thats a sad admission, but they are fast paced, high octane fun and my biggest guilty pleasure. One Shot, is no exception. I won't bother rehashing the plot for you but will say that out of the many classics I have to read for Uni, (or pleasure...), Lee Child's Jack Reacher novels are a welcome and exciting break. Buy one now and begin the journey with Jack...
