Review of Lee Child's 'Gone Tomorrow'

Gone Tomorrow by Lee Child

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

For anyone who reads Lee Child's Jack Reacher books, who hasn't read 'Gone Tomorrow', I recommend you get hold of a copy and give it a try. Gone Tomorrow is different to the other Reacher books I have read because it is written in the first person. This becomes obvious in the second paragraph of the first chapter and it took me by surprise. I didn't know if I wanted a first-person Reacher but this soon changed as Child crafted the story with immediate action and Reacher was left with a big-time problem that grew worse as the story unfolded. I was curious about how Reacher would handle his being in the wrong place at the wrong time in this story.
Typically, the action scenes are realistic, although some of them are certainly not for the squeamish. Within the setting of the story, Reacher's detection and handling of the antagonists is convincing. One is left satisfied at the conclusion of the book that the story was well-conceived, and that it progressed from event to event realistically.
As usual with Lee Child's writing, the prose is pacey, and the dialogue is not forced. I am sure you will not be disappointed with 'Gone Tomorrow.'
