Tripwire (3rd of 18 Reacher Novels)

Tripwire (3rd of 18 Reacher Novels) by Lee Child

Goodreads synopsis:

Jack Reacher, ex-military policeman relaxed in Key West until Costello turned up dead. The amiable PI was hired in New York by the daughter of Reacher’s mentor and former commanding officer, General Garber. Garber’s investigation into a Vietnam MIA sets Reacher on collision with hand-less “Hook” Hobie, hours away from his biggest score.

My thoughts:

This book grabbed me that’s for sure, I didn’t want to put it down. This book has all the fast paced page turning action and thrilling mystery of the other Reacher novels I’ve read, but also you get to see the more loving side of Reacher through his relationship with Jodie. I would like to think he sticks with Jodie, but I know from reading later penned Reacher books that she’s nowhere to be found, maybe later I’ll come across another book that will tell me what happened to her and General Garber’s house. I really like how with Lee Child we get a running account of all the big players in the story and how they always all come together at the end somehow. I always find myself trying to guess the puzzle, then he gives you another piece and you’ve got to guess again. Mr Child and his Jack Reacher always keep you guessing.

Four out of five stars for another enthralling Reacher investigation.

  1. I’m a newcomer to the Reacher series. Passed the first one, Killing Floor, now opening Die Trying (2). A sold out fan 3/4 of the way through the first. Anxious to get to this one now. Thank you for sharing an authentic review.

    • So far I’ve read five out of the eighteen, one of them was ok and the other four were really good. So all in all I’d say that’s a good record.

  2. I dropped almost a thousand words reviewing this book, and didn’t do anywhere near as well. Currently reading no. 4, Running blind. It gives the evolution of Jodie, and the house. 🙂

    • Thank you 🙂 after I’d written this post I flicked through the next book and saw her name, so once I finished reading the unrelated novel I’m reading at the moment I’ll go onto read the next reacher tail 🙂
