The Old Man by Thomas Perry Book Summary

Now an original series from FX starring Jeff Bridges, John Lithgow, and Amy Brenneman: a retired intelligence officer living off the grid is caught in “[a] harrowing hunt-and-hide adventure” (The New York Times).

To all appearances, Dan Chase is a harmless retiree in Vermont with two big mutts and a grown daughter he keeps in touch with by phone. But most sixty-year-old widowers don’t have multiple driver’s licenses, savings stockpiled in banks across the country, or two Beretta Nanos stashed in the spare bedroom closet. Most have not spent decades on the run.

Thirty-five years ago, as a young army intelligence hotshot, Chase was sent to Libya to covertly assist a rebel army. When the plan turned sour, Chase acted according to his conscience—and triggered consequences he never could have anticipated. To this day, someone still wants him dead. And just when he thought he was finally safe, Chase is confronted with the history he spent much of his life trying to escape.

Edgar Award–winning author Thomas Perry writes thrillers that move “almost faster than a speeding bullet” (Wall Street Journal). The Old Man is his latest whip-smart standalone novel, and has been adapted into a critically acclaimed television series starring Jeff Bridges as retired CIA Agent Dan Chase.

“Perry drives deep into Jack Reacher territory in this stand-alone [novel] . . . Swift, unsentimental, and deeply satisfying.” —Kirkus Reviews

The Old Man. I greatly enjoyed reading this book and could not put it down! The old man and Julian were my favorite characters. I loved reading about US military intelligence operations. I did not like the title or the idea of calling him the old man, as it seemed disrespectful of a decorated Vietnam war veteran. I did not like the direction Zoe’s character took either. Her real story was really ridiculous. Her son was also an entitled brat. Loved the ending. Have a lot of respect for US military. Two incidents in the book reinforce the dangers of hitchhiking - whether in Washington state or Libya!

Great story. Unique story, couldn’t put the book down. Realistic example of how the government can waste resources for the wrong reasons . This is a great example of the government picking wrong people to partner with.

Best book I’ve read in a long time. Could not put it down and have recommended it multiple times.

Predictable, poorly written and pathetic plot points. I somehow thought this would be an interesting read since they were making a series out of it. I was sadly mistaken. The writing is choppy, has no lyrical feel, and the storytelling is mechanical. Plot dead ends abound, and the “big reveal” about the main character’s love interest is seriously shallow, illogical and, well, just plain bad. This book was a total waste of my time.

The Old Man. Brilliant and full of capabilities, this is one old man that you should not underestimate. His ability to reel you in and make you fall in love is an act of kindness. I hope there are sequels so I can continue the romance.

Great!. Great story line. Fast read with lots of action.

Overrated. Slow and totally anticlimactic ending

Review of The Old Man. Don’t mess with seniors or underestimate them! Really good read with good character development.

Fairly entertaining…. I bought and read the book after watching the television show recently. There were a number of differences… almost like two different stories. The book was pretty well written, but a bit light on the plot and character development. Giving it a three out of four rating.

Good read. Very good book, especially for a first novel. I began reading the book after watching the first two episodes of the TV series based on the book. Overall, it was engaging, interesting, and reasonably believable. Some of the dates seemed off to me but not so much that it distracted from the books enjoyment.

Very entertaining. I really enjoyed this book. I definitely see why they made a show from it. I will be looking at other books from this author next.
