Stephen King calls Jack Reacher "the coolest continuing series character" - and now he's back in this masterful new thriller from number-one New York Times best-selling author Lee Child.
"Why is this town called Mother's Rest?" That's all Reacher wants to know. But no one will tell him. It's a tiny place hidden in 1,000 square miles of wheat fields, with a railroad stop, sullen and watchful people, and a worried woman named Michelle Chang, who mistakes him for someone else: her missing partner in a private investigation she thinks must have started small and then turned lethal.
Reacher has no particular place to go and all the time in the world to get there, and there's something about he teams up with her and starts to ask around. He thinks: How bad can this thing be? But before long he's plunged into a desperate race through LA, Chicago, Phoenix, and San Francisco and through the hidden parts of the Internet, up against thugs and assassins every step of the way - right back to where he started, in Mother's Rest, where he must confront the worst nightmare he could imagine.
Walking away would have been easier. But, as always, Reacher's rule is: If you want me to stop, you're going to have to make me.

Leider nicht mein Sprecher

Ist vermutlich Geschmackssache, aber ich kam mit dem Sprecher leider gar nicht klar. Hat für mich den Genuss des sonst guten Buchs ruiniert, bis ich mich ganz gegen Ende allmählich dran gewöhnt hatte. Tipp: vorher kurz reinhören!

Jack Reacher fighting the Deep WEB

Of course Jack Reacher is addictive and we love this guy. Every male would like to be him and every female would love to sink into his strong arms. We readers think, we own the guy and that is why we feel entitled to tell Lee Child to bring back the Jack Reacher, we know and love. We want to have the knight in shiny armor of modern times back. It is hard to come up with a new and interesting plot, when you write the 20th book of the series, but “Make Me” is heading the wrong way.

The great voice of Dick Hill cannot change that, the story is simply too far off.

Jack Reacher steps out of a train to find out, why this place in the middle of nowhere is called “Mother’s Rest”. He does not get a good explanation, but he meets Michelle Chang, an attractive woman and former FBI agent. Chang is a private investigator and looking for her missing partner. Unsurprisingly both of them fall for each other and join forces to unravel the dark secret of “Mother’s Rest”. The search for answers leads them all over the West-Coast and the Midwest and soon enough, they turn from hunter into prey. Unfortunately the deeper they dig, the more disgusting the story gets. The WEB as a commercial entertainment platform offering torture and murder is not Jack Reacher’s place.

The story moves too far away from what we love about Jack Reacher. He is not supposed to save the world, he is the guy, who puts things right in small town America and provides justice and protection to people (mostly women) in need. The blood and gore of “Make Me” and the incredible cruelty of the story disgusted me.

I know, you probably read “Make Me” anyway, but you will be disappointed.
