    Story

    Spenser is investigating the Port City Theater Company, where the director claims he's being stalked. When an actor is shot dead during a performance, all clues lead to the local Chinese Mafia, whose roots run deep in this drab waterfront city. With Hawk and ex mobster Vinnie assisting, Spenser eventually triumphs in one of his most compelling adventures.

    Overall

    hated the narrator, his voice, his pronunciation of simple words [ex. buffet is read as boo-fay..]. The narrator has a small, squeaky voice and cannot hold a candle to Joe Mantegna's handling of Parker's Spenser novels. heck, even Burt Reynolds reading my favorite Spenser book, Double Deuce, is better.

    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.

    What did you love best about A Wanted Man?

    The story arc over the last 2 books. Plus the Byzantine plot was pure lee child. He is the best!!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Child's plots are always skin tight. Killing floor started me off and I have every book.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The setup to the basic story line. Very believable. Very suspenseful. Great dialogue.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Reacher creatures never cry. Jeez; have you read any of his books?


    Any additional comments?

    I will NOT go see that little squirt Tom Cruise play Jack Reacher this winter when the film of One Shot comes out. They couldn't have cast a more unbelievable person to play Jack this side of Pee Wee Herman!

    In a novel that slams through one hairpin surprise after another, Lee Child unleashes a thriller that spans three decades and gnaws at the heart of America...and for Jack Reacher, a man who trusts no one and likes it that way, it's a mystery with only one answer the kind that comes when you finally get face-to-face and look your worst enemy in the eye.

    Overall

    This book is a real blast, especially after that last yawner where Reacher's out west fighting a fat born-again nutcase. Great pacing, good antagonists--My only wish is that Reacher would've called Naegele when things got tight. When Francis Naegele and Reacher are together, no baddies are safe!! Just LOVE this book and can't wait for the next Reacher novel.
