This plot would definitely make a great Prime Video movie with a crew of unscrupulous bad guys carrying out their sneaky plans and eliminating anyone who stands in their way.

Every loyal reader of this series knows nobody messes with Jack Reacher - he can take down half a dozen very big, very angry men in the blink of an eye. If No Plan B had been written by a new-to-me author and with a protagonist not named Reacher, I would still have rated this 2. I certainly enjoyed the ingenuity how the many moving parts of this narrative explosively collided to form an enjoyable denouement.This could not have been written by Lee Child (Andrew Child is listed as a co-author), and I doubt Lee had anything to do with it or even read it. There are some deviations over the course of the series, but almost always, the action starts early and before you know it Reacher is the the middle of things again. Reacher violently beats up one thug every three pages in a far more violent and bloody way than usual. I especially got a kick out of Jed, the hapless teen who is also slouching his way to the apocalyptic wrap-up.

The evil corporate conspiracy trope has become cliche--variations of it have become too common in the series. This book starts with the bad guys in a meeting, then flips to 3 days prior to the meeting, then moves ahead in time again. I heartily thank the publisher, via NetGalley, for allowing me to read and review a pre-release copy. I tried to give Andrew a fair shake and I think that 3 books in, ratings of 3 then 2 then 1 star tell the story of a failed experiment. A typical Jack Reacher novel that was a fairly enjoyable read but getting rather predictable for me.Full details of your rights under the Distance Selling Regulations are available in the UK from your local Citizens' Advice Bureau or your Local Authority's Trading Standards Office. She has picked up the same desire for justice that pushes Reacher forward and, once she confirmed Reacher was one of the good guys, understood that he would be the perfect person to hitch on to. For further information about your statutory rights, contact your local authority Trading Standards department or consumer advice center (for example the Citizen's Advice Bureau if you are in the UK). Jack Reacher, everyone’s favourite nomad, is back for another adventure, allowing Lee and Andrew Child to use their brilliant writing abilities one more.

In the US he drives a supercharged Jaguar, which was built in Jaguar's Browns Lane plant, thirty yards from the hospital in which he was born. The book came but every single page was wringled as if it was damp anyone else had the same problems. I read the Reacher books over and over as they are normally so rich in detail and enjoyable, but not this one. This perception was not helped by a lacklustre narration by Scott Brick, usually one of my favourite interpreters and readers in the genre. There is a noticeable difference in style of writing, now that Andrew has joined the writing team, perhaps a bit less warmth about our hero, but I'm happy to see there is still an occasional bit of humor to lighten things up.Some character build ups were far too long for the denoument, some far too involved for their part in the story. The Child brothers know how to keep Reacher at the top of his game and series fans can revel in another wonderful thriller. A huge draw at countless Waterstones events, working with Lee over the years has for us always been an absolute pleasure.

Of the first 26 I gave all 5 star ratings except for four which got four star ratings (mostly recent ones). An accomplice intervenes, allowing both to escape, as Reacher has an unfortunate encounter with a collapsing fire escape. Next to him is Michaela Fenton, an army veteran turned FBI agent, who is trying to find her twin brother.

He quickly uncovers a connection of Angela with a local man, Sam Roth, who somewhat improbably died of a heart attack shortly before her arrival. No Plan B is an unevenly paced book with moments of extreme action that’s, at times, brutal and uncompromising. The start followed classic Reacher lines, but from there it descended into a 'This happens, then this happens, then this happens, then the end'.
