’61 Hours’ by Lee Child – Review (Book)

Jack Reacher returns in Lee Child’s 14th novel in the Reacher series, finding trouble like no-one else can. 😎

After an icy bus accident leaves him (and some senior citizens) stranded in the town of Bolton, Reacher helps the local police deal with the injured, as he has first aid training from his Army days.

However he suddenly finds himself embroiled in a sticky situation as a murder occurs and as the new guy in town he has to be a suspect, even though he’s helping the cops.

Lee Child has the Reacher formula down to a ‘t’ at this stage and his novels feel familiar but different enough that they don’t become boring or repetitive.

Reacher does his best to assist the local police but some tense moments mean the partnership is fragile at times.

Of course it’s fairly doubtful many people in real life would find themselves consistently in trouble wherever they go, nor would they have Reacher’s expertise and skills to fall back on, but that isn’t the point of the Reacher novels.

These are fun, easy to read stories that are thoroughly entertaining.

’61 Hours’ shows that Child, and Reacher, have no plans to slow down anytime soon. And that’s a good thing in my book.
