    Like every other hobbit, Bilbo Baggins likes nothing better than a quiet evening in his snug hole in the ground, dining on a sumptuous dinner in front of a fire. But when a wandering wizard captivates him with tales of the unknown, Bilbo becomes restless. Soon he joins the wizard’s band of homeless dwarves in search of giant spiders, savage wolves, and other dangers. Bilbo quickly tires of the quest for adventure and longs for the security of his familiar home. But before he can return to his life of comfort, he must face the greatest threat of all.

    Story
    (2096)

    Four people in a car, hoping to make Chicago by morning. An hour behind them, a man lies stabbed to death in an old pumping station. He was seen going in with two others, but he never came out. He has been executed, the knife work professional, the killers vanished. Within minutes, the police are notified. Within hours, the FBI descends, laying claim to the victim without ever saying who he was or why he was there. All 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.

    Bill says: "Wanted Man is Wanting ~ And I Want 14 Hours Back"
    "Simile overload. Written more like a screen play"

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Retitle it to How Reacher Thinks.


    What was most disappointing about Lee Child’s story?

    Pedantic


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    Always stellar.


    Could you see A Wanted Man being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Wait! You mean this wasn't the screen play? "61 Hours" would make a great movie. I'd like to see some fresh Actor's and Actresses.


    Any additional comments?

    Kind of disappointed. Started from nowhere and ended up there.
