In this 13th Reacher novel, the former army MP confronts a possible suicide bomber on a nearly deserted Manhattan subway car--a confrontation that will lead him back to the Soviet war in Afghanistan in the 1980s and forward to the war on terrorism. It turns out that Susan Mark's life was critical to dozens of others in Washington, California, and Afghanistan ... from a former Delta Force operator now running for the U.S. Senate to a beautiful young woman with a story to tell, but can Reacher sort through their lies in time to save himself and help a woman police officer?… (mais)

    BeckyJG: John Rain is a hero who is similar in many ways to Jack Reacher. A man of action and of few words, deep, lonely (even if he doesn't realize it). Rain is perhaps more morally ambiguous than Reacher; both kill without hesitation and little remorse, but Rain is, after all, an assassin, and gets paid to do so.… (mais)

This review was originally posted on Once Upon a Chapter






I rolled a Mystery/Thriller genre on my TBR Monopoly board. I've been itching to read the next book in the Jack Reacher Series. I saw an opportunity and grabbed it. Gone Tomorrow by Lee Child was my choice for this prompt.



There was a lot happening in Gone Tomorrow. It all starts with an 11 point list and a suicide. Child always does something to lure me in and make me care.



Reacher is in a post 9/11 world and cell phones are becoming common place. His senses are still on point though. Per normal with Reacher there is espionage and intrigue. This time it goes back to the mid-80s and early 90s.



It's always hard to talk about the characters in a Jack Reacher novel. Gone Tomorrow is no different. Reacher takes up so much page space that any other character doesn't really have any time to shine.



Also Reacher usually reads people pretty well so as the reader I'm naturally suspicious of the right people. There usually aren't many surprises in that regard. In Gone Tomorrow, most of the surprises are in the plot.



Overall I really like this book. There were just some spoiler-ish things that didn't happen that I was hoping would. I'm very excited to continue the series though!

Four chapters in the same carriage on the same train describing the same people and working through the same list of "Eleven Signs of a Suicide Bomber". I nearly wanted to bomb Lee Childs for the start of this book. Things only improved slightly throughout the rest of this "Everyone has a secret" and "Everything is not as it seems" book. ( )

This the first Lee child / Jack reacher book I've read, and the thirteenth in the series. So I'm rather late to the party. I've watched one Reacher movie with Tom Cruise in the starring role, so maybe that ruined it for me. I have a hard time imagining Reacher as Child paints him (stick to 'Top Gun', Mav!)

I'm not sure if I liked this book. There is much to like, mind you. Great plot, many twists and turns, reasonable characters, and a good sense of place. It certainly draws you through to the end. The best 'character', for me, was New York City. I haven't been there yet, but Child has you 'there' among the chessboard of city blocks and slinking through the subway.

The violence doesn't occur often, but when it does it hits with a curdling thump. It's not glamorised or overdone, but Child does not hold back. I'm generally okay with that, but one scene (which I won't describe) was possibly the most vile thing I've ever read. The memory of it haunted me that night! Which got me thinking ... did Child find this in his research. Did the mujahideen / Afghani women actually perform acts like this against British, Soviet and possibly American soldiers? If so, then I guess it's fair game to use in a fictional novel. But if not, I think this feeds into American fear and loathing of these people. It dehumanises them and legitimises any defensive or offensive action Western people want to take - no holds barred. It's a fine line, this, and possibly crosses an ethical line for me.

I was glad to finish the book. I wanted it over. Done. But ... enjoy it? I just don't know. And I don't know if I'll read any more in the series. I'd rather get a good night's sleep, I think. ( )

This was good but a little too long in places. Sometimes the detail wore me out. But overall a great read. ( )

The precise maneuvers... illustrate why Mr. Child is so good at what he does. But what is he doing? “Gone Tomorrow” has such a case of villain inflation that it involves itself in global geopolitics on the highest order. One step higher into the upper reaches of evildoing and Mr. Child could find himself on the moon.

Suicide bombers are easy to spot. They give out all kinds of telltale signs. Mostly because they're nervous. By definition they're all first-timers.

Please do not combine Lee Child's 13th Jack Reacher novel, Gone Tomorrow with his 10th Jack Reacher novel, The Hard Way. The ISBN 376450238X is used for both this work and for Way Out which is the German translation of The Hard Way. Thank you.
