Make Me

Fans of Lee Child ( and his detective Jack Reacher will be delighted that the author has delivered again in 2015. Here is a summary of the detective’s 20th adventure to tempt you away from doing anything useful.

Jack Reacher wants to know how a town could come to be called ‘Mother’s Rest’. But no one will tell him. It’s a tiny place hidden in a thousand square miles of wheat fields, with a railroad stop, and sullen and watchful people. There is a worried woman named Michelle Chang, who mistakes him for someone else: her missing partner in a private investigation she thinks must have started small and then turned lethal. Reacher has no particular place to go, and all the time in the world to get there, and there’s something about Chang . . . so he teams up with her and starts to ask around. He wonders how bad things could be. But before long he’s plunged into a desperate race through LA, Chicago, Phoenix, and San Francisco. The thriller spins him through the hidden parts of the internet, up against thugs and assassins every step of the way – right back to where he started, in Mother’s Rest. Here he must confront the worst nightmare he could imagine. Walking away would have been easier. But if you’ve read Reacher’s previous 19 outings, that’s not exactly his style! It’s not your style to do the housework – so get thrilled by Lee Child. Everyone else is.
