A feast of clues, well digested by Jack Reacher.,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Visitor: (Jack Reacher 4) (Paperback)
Having read and enjoyed the first three books of Lee Child (Die Trying being my all time favourite), I eagerly anticipated The Visitor despite my earlier confusion of the same book titled Running Blind in the United States. The story leaps off to a 'pounding' start with Reacher's usual vigilante approach and quickly progresses to a web of blackmail, threat and deceit. The unscrupulous manipulations of the FBI in getting what they want is well depicted if not sometimes worrying and Reacher's ability to turn the tables around was very cleverly written. The killer, also known as The Visitor was also well portrayed with a feast of clues strewn here and there on its identity adding a clever twist at the end. Child's description of events is pretty thorough and realistic. It almost feels like you're Jack Reacher's shadow! Once again, here's a book that's screaming out for a movie to be made. This book was aptly named The Visitor and is an exceedingly fast paced, thrilling and entertaining book and Lee Child has once again surpassed himself.
