A Wanted Man Book Summary


#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

“The indomitable Reacher burns up the pages.”—USA Today

 
Four people in a car, hoping to make Chicago by morning. One man driving, another telling stories that don’t add up. A woman in the back, silent and worried. And a hitchhiker with a broken nose. An hour behind them, the FBI descends on an old pumping station where a man was stabbed to death—the knife work professional, the killers nowhere to be seen.
 
All Jack Reacher wanted was a ride to Virginia. All he did was stick out his thumb. But he soon discovers he has hitched more than a ride. He has tied himself to a massive conspiracy, in which nothing is what it seems, and nobody is telling the truth.
 
“Furious action . . . [Lee] Child keeps the pacing swift and the surprises rolling. . . . [A] feverishly thrilling series.”—The Miami Herald
 
“Smart, breathless . . . [with] one of the best female characters in the whole Reacher series.”—The New York Times
 
“Subtle and nuanced [with] seductive writing and irresistible plot twists.”—Newsweek
 
Don’t miss Lee Child’s short story “Deep Down” and a sneak peek of his new novel, Never Go Back, in the back of the book.

A Wanted Man - Lee Child Reviews

  • A Wanted Man

    This is my first read by this author. I've been reading about Jack Reacher from the novelist, Diane Capri. And her books, Jack always is in the background and the person they are seeking. It was nice to see him as a real character and part of the "active real" plot. Someone suspenseful in parts, but not the edge of your seat kind. Very likable characters.
  • Boring

    One of the worst books in the Reacher series. I was so unbelievably bored the whole time. There were no good twists and the plot was boring. The ending was very anti climatic. I would suggest skipping this one completely.

    As I understand, Cruise bought the rights and cast himself. 6'5, 250lbs, fists like 2X4s and hands like shovels, add all the other character descriptives, and of course it's Tom Cruise. Hint. He was cast in "Magic Mike" ( so would likely have been interested in even an average script). Apparently, directorial debut and staring in action movie opening end of '14, is over 6'3. Guess.
  • Worst Reacher book

    I have read every book in this series and this is by far the worst. Actually, let me re-phrase that, this is the only one I really did not like at all. Others were somewhat weak (61 Hours, Echo Burning), but still had their high points. It almost seems like it was written by someone else, completely different style with no suspense or good idea of who the bad guys even were. Very disappointed.

    Unbelievable plot. Stuff just happens. Lee Child must have been paid by the word as he drug events on forever. He never develops a feeling for the characters and Reacher is a filthy slob with no direction in life.

    Having read all the Reacher novels there are now two books, Nothing to Lose and Wanted Man, that leave you wondering why you kept plugging along hoping the story would pick up only to be disappointed. Just for good measure, lose Tom Cruise in any future films, and the reference to Puller, was that an attempt in humor or an inside joke between you and David Baldacci?

    Pretty much couldn't put this one down...just like most of Child's books. The only complaint I have ever had is the fact that he gets a little wordy in his descriptions, particularly about directions. Other than that, I completely enjoyed the book. Complex and corner turning constantly. Do it again please.
