Better Off Dead: (Jack Reacher 26)


New Member
Jack Reacher is back in this latest book, “Better Off Dead”, by the brothers, Lee and Andrew Child. The book is a fast read, pulling the reader quickly into the action as Reacher tries to help an apparent victim of an auto accident on the side of a lonely stretch of road. When the lone woman in the vehicle pulls a gun on him, Reacher figures there must be a lot more to this story. He calmly talks his way out of trouble only to be sucked back in when a jeep pulls up with two malcontents inside, who are apparently looking for the woman, who is unbeknownst to them, lying in wait for them. This is of course a mystery that Reacher cannot walk away from. Quickly choosing sides, he helps the woman and thus starts on a mission to find her missing brother who may be being held captive by the malcontent henchmen. Reacher’s character is the perfect hero for this job as he is a little larger than life, but not too inflated as to be unbelievable. Another excellent book from this great team of authors. This book was provided by Delacorte Press for review.
