Past Tense: A Jack Reacher Novel
Jack Reacher is a man who never seeks out trouble, but trouble has a target on him. Jack is continuing his nomadic lifestyle, travelling from Maine when he embarks on a journey to visit his hometown. He hitchhikes to Laconia, New Hampshire, in search of his birth home, only unearthing more questions. Meanwhile, two youngsters, Patty and Shorty, are on a profit-seeking venture from Canada when they are waylaid by their broken-down relic they are driving. They arrive at a local motor court with plenty of vacancies. The largesse offered by the ownership is soon overshadowed by the conditions surrounding Patty and Shorty. Ulterior motives lie just below the surface. The two soon find themselves trapped and at the will of their captors. As Reacher digs into his past, it leads to bumping into evildoers as well as distant relatives who may not greet his arrival with open arms. The paths of Reacher and Patty and Shorty are soon to meet, but will they be alive at the end?
Past Tense hits with the intensity of a freight train early on and doesn’t let up. Lee Child continues to entertain with the adventures of Jack Reacher. The situations may change, but the compass of Reacher doesn’t. He never fails to capture an audience. The plot moves with a graceful fluidity and makes for a compelling and fun read.
