I can always rely on Jack Reacher to entertain me! I am reaching A Wanted Man by Lee Child, book #17 in the Jack Reacher series. The interesting thing about this book is that so far, almost all of the Jack Reacher scenes have been in the car. It’s interesting how much tension  you can build with four people stuck in a car together. But then, if you’ve been on a family vacation, you probably already know that! Finding himself in the middle of trouble, as usual, Jack Reacher is on the case.

He kept the smile on his face.

He remained optimistic.

And then finally, after a total of ninety-three minutes on the ramp, a car stopped for him.

Lee Child, A Wanted Man

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.

Tell me what you think!
