A book review of ‘Persuader’ by Lee Child.
Persuader by Lee Child follows the exploits of former military cop Jack Reacher. The story starts when Reacher sees Franics Xavier Quinn. It’s a man he thought he had killed ten years ago, and although shocked at the revelation, Reacher is determined to finish the job he started a decade ago.
The FBI discover his plans and try to recruit him to use as a ‘governmental weapon’ to take down a major smuggling kingpin involved with Quinn.
Lee Child clearly does his homework and the novel is jam-packed with cleverly-used facts. He also describes Reacher’s planning and implementation in such detail which makes it easy to visualize the action-packed scenes. He’s very descriptive and thorough, but not in a way that bores the reader, all his words just add to the building of the suspense.
It’s a thrilling crime novel; with a brilliant plot which constantly keeps Reacher on his toes, and the reader on the edge of their seats.
This was another book that continually kept me enthralled and turning the pages. It travels at such a speed that it makes it incredibly difficult to put down.
