This is my review of the book Jack Reacher : One Shot, which I have read recently. This is the first Lee Child book that I have read, and I must admit the fact that it has been turned into a film with Tom Cruise, swayed me into buying the book.
The start of the book is not that nice with it's vivid description of the murder of five people, and I did wonder what I had got, but fortunately the story improves. Seemingly it is a closed case and the police are certain who did it, but of course this is not the case, and gradually the mystery is revealed.
There are several mysteries here and they are slowly revealed. Each layer of intrigue is slowly pealed back just to reveal the next level. The writing style makes it an easy read, which along with the levels of mystery make it hard to put down. - Just what the quote from the Independent on Sunday said according to the back cover.
As such I read it in a couple of days over the weekend. It was in the main an enjoyable read, and I will be looking out for more of his books in the future.
