61 Hours (Jack Reacher, #14)61 Hours by Lee Child

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Blurb from goodreads

Jack Reacher is back.

The countdown has begun. Get ready for the most exciting 61 hours of your life. #1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child’s latest thriller is a ticking time bomb of suspense that builds electric tension on every page.

Sixty-one hours. Not a minute to spare.

A tour bus crashes in a savage snowstorm and lands Jack Reacher in the middle of a deadly confrontation. In nearby Bolton, South Dakota, one brave woman is standing up for justice in a small town threatened by sinister forces. If she’s going to live long enough to testify, she’ll need help. Because a killer is coming to Bolton, a coldly proficient assassin who never misses.

Reacher’s original plan was to keep on moving. But the next 61 hours will change everything. The secrets are deadlier and his enemies are stronger than he could have guessed—but so is the woman whose life he’ll risk his own to save.

In 61 Hours, Lee Child has written a showdown thriller with an explosive ending that readers will talk about for a long time to come.(less)

My review

Jack Reacher is a fantastic character, this time he finds himself caught up in a pending trial in a small town. An eldery ladys life is at risk after seeing something that could throw a spanner in the works for a huge drug operation and Jack feels compelled to stop this happening.

The story has good action but takes it time getting from one good scene to another and I found it lacking in something. However the last quarter of the book is really good, fast paced and has a few twists. It ends on a cliff hanger which means you will need to get the next one to find out what happens and for me the way the end came together and the fact I am nosey I will track it down, 3/5 for me.

  1. I loved 61 Hours, but didn't find the follow-up as good (you don't find out what happened to Reacher at the end of 61 Hours until you're a 3rd of the way into the follow-up book).

    I've recently read the latest book in the series and had my faith restored in it.

    Keep reading :)
