One Shot - Lee Child ... setups, and One Shot is true to form. A sniper, Barr, kills five people with six shots and leaves a clear trail of evidence; arrested, he asks for Reacher. When Reacher was a military policeman, politics stopped him pursuing Barr--he cannot understand why Barr would ask for him and Barr has been beaten in jail until he cannot remember himself. Yet, for Reacher, the loner who looks at things differently from civilians, the story does not add up--Barr should not have got himself caught, should not even have fired from where he did.

Before reading a book, I usually have a quick flick at least to see how long the first chapter is. Not for any particular reason, but just for a subconscious comparison to the previous book I'll have read at the time. So imagine my surprise when I found this this book gets to a staggering 61 pages before the second chapter kicks in, and it seems to be nothing but intense description about the events of a shooting in Indiana, where one man goes on a mission to kill 6 seemingly innocent commuters in precision fashion before returning home, getting arrested and saying nothing but asking for Jack Reacher. But it's an intro that works. It's been a while since I've ... Read the complete review

Background A friend at work knows how much I enjoy reading, so he suggested I give a Lee Child thriller a go, so I finally (10 months later!!) did. I found this novel in my library along with several others from this author. About the Author: Lee Child was born in Coventry in 1954. He worked for 18 years at Granada TV, before being made redundant. He took this opportunity to move to America and begin a very successful career writing thrillers. His first book was 'Killing Floor' and since then he has written 10 more. All his books so far have featured Jack Reacher as an amateur detective. Outline of the book: The ...

The Mounties are known for ‘always getting there man’, but there is an equally known saying of ‘the one that got away’. So which is it to be? Getting away with it? Or inevitably getting caught? Having read some books in Lee Child’s Reacher series already I assume that Reacher exists in the catching his man mould. However, Reacher is more likely to catch his man, pummel him, handcuff him to a moving car, and scarper into the night. Reacher returns to confront an old case from his army days of the one that did get away – but not forever…. Jack Reacher is back again and this time the dangerous loner must investigate the sniper killing of 5 innocent people. ... Read the complete review

The peace and quiet of the downtown of an Indiana town is shattered by the sound of six shots, five of which find the heads of their victims with unerring accuracy whilst a sixth comes to rest at the bottom of an ornamental fountain. Within minutes the sniper and his rifle are safely making their escape whilst in the street chaos has broken out and the air is punctured by the screams of those still able to scream and the distant sound of police sirens that are only beaten to the scene only by the camera crews housed in a nearby building. Usually the randomness of such crimes makes detection a tough process however the amount of forensic evidence left at the ... Read the complete review

One Shot is the 9th in the Jack Reacher series of books. One shot starts by telling the story of a gunman, he has everything precise he goes to a spot in a car park, aims his gun, shoots some people then leaves. The main suspect is a man names James Barr, the police arrest him at 3 in the morning when he is asleep in bed and they start questioning him. He utters one sentence, Get Jack Reacher for me, and until Reacher turns up he doesn't say another word. The story of One Shot is another great from Lee Child it doesn't have as much action in it as the others but we again learn a bit more about Reachers past, and how he deals with certain ...
