Friends this is my review of the book Gone Tomorrow by Lee Child, which I read recently. Previously, since I have been taking note of which books I have read, I have read one of the Jack Reacher novels before, which I enjoyed, so seeing a couple going for a song at a second hand book fair I snapped them up.
This certainly has a different plot line as a starter. Someone commits suicide in front of our hero Jack Reacher on a very late subway train. Jack then sets out to try and solve the mystery as to why she killed herself as she did not leave any message.
Sadly a lot of the story seems to involve various chases around New York City, and as a reader who has not been to that city, the story did lack depth, as one unknown street is very similar to another unknown street. So I don't know if these chases made sense or not.
So as not to totally spoil the plot for anyone who has not read the story, but it does involve politicians, FBI, terrorists and the local police. I will not reveal too much more, except of course Jack manages to escape several times from situations that seem impossible. A whole team of crack foreign assigns is no match for our hero as the body count rises.
It was an enjoyable easy read if one leaves reality aside for a few hours. This was book 17 week 14 fiction 15 (audio book 3) non fiction 2
