No Plan B: The unputdownable new 2022 Jack Reacher thriller from the No.1 bestselling authors (Jack Reacher, 27)
About this deal
The other set (the napalm guys) caught the prison guys and had them all strung up by the time Reacher arrived.
In previous books, if Reacher decided to kill a bad guy (it happened a few times), he chose a quick bullet to the head. And he sees what really happened – a man in grey hoodie and jeans, swift and silent as a shadow, pushed the victim to her death, before grabbing her bag and sauntering away. Some character build ups were far too long for the denoument, some far too involved for their part in the story. Things began a little shakily, but they appear to have righted themselves with this explosive thriller once more. I'd have much preferred a much slower and more considered approach to the entire story, focussing, as in the past, on the arrival, the fatal character flaws of the antagonists, a more subtle reveal of the real intentions behind the Minerva Corporation and just generally a story more redolent of how a drifter like Reacher would have approached it.I wasn't a fan of the previous book in this series and with No Plan B, Andrew has really done some harm to this series. Here, Jack wanders into a Colorado town and witnessed a woman get pushed under a bus so cleverly that everyone else present assumes its suicide. In subplots, two other people are heading to that prison as well for their own purposes--one, a young boy running away from foster care, wanting to find his birth father; and the other, a man looking for revenge. It did not follow the usual MO for Reacher's travails and was too choppy from one scene to another, one character to another. The book came but every single page was wringled as if it was damp anyone else had the same problems.
Along the way, we are introduced to not one interesting character and forced to plow through page after page of eye-glazing, brain-numbing descriptions of how Reacher goes about accomplishing his tasks. It’s a dark, horrifying crime that may be difficult to come to terms with and if more was revealed about it, I may have been more convinced about Reacher’s actions when he reached Winson.Reacher cannot help but apply his unique investigative skills to right the wrong, that apparently evades the local law enforcement agencies.
He is the recipient of many awards, most recently Author of the Year at the 2019 British Book Awards. I've been a Lee Child / Reacher fan for I don't know how long but I'm going to be honest, I found this one hard going. There are some deviations over the course of the series, but almost always, the action starts early and before you know it Reacher is the the middle of things again. While No Plan B is number 27 in the Reacher series, it's the third novel written by Andrew "Child" instead of Lee Child.
