#book review: Past Tense (jack reacher series)

Author: Lee child

I am a huge Jack Reacher fan ever since I first saw the screen adaptation. So even now I could visualise Tom Cruise.
The current novel is the 23rd in its series and yet its essence doesn’t falter.
The two parallel tracks, typical of the author, pan out in their own way. In the first, Jack Reacher on his way to Portsmouth, New Hampshire, takes a detour to the lesser-known town of Laconia in search of his father Stan Reacher’s hometown. However true to his nature, Reacher gets embroiled in fights causing ripples in the sleepy town’s law enforcement.
In the other track Patty and Shorty a young starry-eyed couple, migrants from Canada, reach a motel in the middle of Laconia when their car breaks down. Their refuge however turns out lethal as they are subjected to psychological manipulation before they realize they are in a sinister trap with nowhere to go.
Reacher and his friend reach the motel for a room but are abruptly turned away rousing Recher’s suspicions. What follows is a mind-blowing account of conflicts and a super climax where Lee outdoes himself.
What attracts me to Reacher is his care a damn attitude and superlative observation. That’s a compliment to his creation, the author!
