Brajesh's Review : Tripwire
I was going over my book-lists of the last few years and realized that every Summer I seem to need a Jack Reacher rush. This year, it happened in June and I read 3 of this series back-to-back.
Tripwire, starts with Reacher sculpturing his tank like body, by digging swimming pools - a seemingly innocuous act which plays a very significant role at the end of the book. He then gets called back by his now dead mentor to unravel the mystery of a missing Nam soldier. He also meets his long term love fantasy Jodie (daughter of Col Leon Garber).
The book links extensively with many of his past novels, but also remains a stand-alone pure thriller. This one is best enjoyed once you are truly addicted to JR. Through the book, the reader is hooked on by the standard dose of chase and action. The mandatory twist at the end is also quite smart.
Rating : 3.5 / 5
