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 (Thomas Perry) Book Reviews
Great storyUnique 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..MstrparaScore: 5/5
Good readVery 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..RicJmScore: 4/5
The Old ManI 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!.ArtymusicianScore: 5/5
