‘Nothing to Lose’ by Lee Child

Nothing to Lose

Hope and Despair – two small towns in Colorado. Jack Reacher wants a cup of coffee, but the waitress ignores him. The other customers ignore him. Then a bunch of deputies show up with the intention of throwing him out of town. But Reacher is no pushover and he’s more than a little curious to know what the town is trying to hide.

This is the twelfth book in Lee Child’s Jack Reacher series. Having been a fan for a few years, I’ve read the previous eleven, though it’s taken me a while to get to this one. For reasons I can’t fathom Nothing to Lose didn’t grab my attention as much as usual and I was a good way through before it did. However, one thing we can rely on with Mr Child is that he tells a good tale and the denouement was as satisfying as ever.

Not as much action as we normally get from Reacher, but a good solid story, nevertheless.

    My mother also struggled to get into this particular book, Colin. She is also a Jack Reacher fan.

      Glad it’s not just me – I was beginning to wonder if I was going off him. Anyway, I’ve already bought the next one in the series.
