A Reacher Novel: 61 Hours

I just finished reading A Reacher Novel: 61 Hours by Lee Child.  It is a series about Jack Reacher, but I unfortunately have not read the previous novels.  I happened to pick this one up and loved it!!

Jack Reacher is back.

The countdown has begun. Get ready for the most exciting 61 hours of your life. #1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child’s latest thriller is a ticking time bomb of suspense that builds electric tension on every page.

Sixty-one hours. Not a minute to spare.

A tour bus crashes in a savage snowstorm and lands Jack Reacher in the middle of a deadly confrontation. In nearby Bolton, South Dakota, one brave woman is standing up for justice in a small town threatened by sinister forces. If she’s going to live long enough to testify, she’ll need help. Because a killer is coming to Bolton, a coldly proficient assassin who never misses.

Reacher’s original plan was to keep on moving. But the next 61 hours will change everything. The secrets are deadlier and his enemies are stronger than he could have guessed—but so is the woman whose life he’ll risk his own to save.

In 61 Hours, Lee Child has written a showdown thriller with an explosive ending that readers will talk about for a long time to come.


I felt it was a bit slow in the beginning, but as I kept reading it really grew on me.  I am a fan of James Patterson's Women's Murder Club  and some other murder/mystery books so it wasn't long before I was hooked on this one :)  Somewhere in the middle of the book, I already was trying to figure out for myself who the bad guy was & I was right, although I kept second guessing myself!  It really gets suspenseful and you feel like you are in the story at times-I think it was very well written and it is an easy read!

Now I'm looking to read the Reacher Novels from the beginning!
