This review is from: Ghostman (Kindle Edition)
Absolutely stunning debut novel. Good solid plot with a brilliant hero, we know him as Jack but that isn't his real name. In my mind he was my favourite hero, Jack Bauer (who could rescue me any time!) so I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Jack is the Ghostman, who can commit crimes and disappear without trace and has many identities. He is contacted by Marcus after a bank heist had gone wrong some five years previously and, due to a mistake made by Jack, Marcus calls in a favour. Marcus has implemented a casino robbery but the two men sent to do the job, Moreno and Ribbons, are ambushed as they make their getaway with the money. Moreno is killed and Robbins is shot but then disappears without trace. Jack is given the job of finding Robbins quickly, as an incendiary device is planted with the money and is due to detonate after 42 hours, rendering it useless.
Good, fast paced story and I couldn't put it down until I had finished it. It twists and turns and you never know what the outcome will be.
I understand Roger Hobbs is in his early twenties. If this is the case, Lee Child had better keep watching over his shoulder.
Brilliant stuff. Highly recommended.
