Tripwire

A Jack Reacher Novel

Jack Reacher (englisch) Band 3

Jack Reacher hunts the hunter in the third novel in Lee Child's New York Times bestselling series.

Ex military policeman Jack Reacher is enjoying the lazy anonymity of Key West when a stranger shows up asking for him. He's got a lot of questions. Reacher does too, especially after the guy turns up dead. The answers lead Reacher on a cold trail back to New York, to the tenuous confidence of an alluring woman, and the dangerous corners of his own past.
Rezension
"Child grabs hold with the first page and won't let go until the finish. This is pulse-pounding suspense, and Child hardly misses a beat."-The Arizona Daily Star

"Good thrillers exist in a class of their own. The point of such a book is total escape and Tripwire fills the bill. A bang-up finale which makes the reader sit back and gasp with both wonder and understanding."-The Denver Post

"Not only bang-on suspense but an insightful look into how humans work."-Houston Chronicle

"A stylish thriller as complex and disturbing as its hero."-Stephen White

"A tightly-drawn and swift thriller that gives new meaning to what a page-turner should be."-Michael Connelly

"Page for page, there's probably more fisticuffs in a Lee Child thriller than anywhere else."-Chicago Tribune

"When you put a good villain together with a great hero like Jack Reacher...the result is a thriller good to the last drop. (Child) does a great job of balancing good and evil, and certainly Hobie ranks up there with some of the most memorable villains."-The Orlando Sentinel

    "When you put a good villain together with a great hero like Jack Reacher . . . the result is a thriller good to the last drop. [Child] does a great job of balancing good and evil, and certainly Hobie ranks up there with some of the most memorable villains."

    -Orlando Sentinel

    "Page for page, there's probably more fisticuffs in a Lee Child thriller than anywhere else."

    -Chicago Tribune

    "Lee Child can write. His first novel, Killing Floor, won the Anthony and the Barry Awards for Best First Mystery. It's no wonder."

    -Arizona Daily Star

    "[Reacher] is a character who deserves to be around for a long time."

    -Green Bay Press-Gazette

    "Complex . . . Throughout this cross-country cat-and-mouse tale, the author's spare style reveals telling details: layers of intrigue, poignant moments, hideous crimes, and ingenious solutions."

    -BookPage

    "A beaut . . . Reacher is a complex, contemplative brute. He's spellbinding whether kicking in doors or just kicking around a thought in his brain."

    -Publishers Weekly (starred review)

    "A solid thriller that brings to mind the knight-errant adventures of John D. MacDonald's Travis McGee. Edgy, exciting reading."

    -Booklist

    "Suspense fiction doesn't get much better than this."

    -Library Journal

    "Lee Child continues his meteoric rise and mastery of suspense with Tripwire . . . a tightly-drawn and swift thriller."

    -Michael Connelly

    Praise for

    LEE CHILD

    "Reacher is a wonderfully epic hero: tough, taciturn, yet vulnerable."

    -People

    "Great style and careful plotting . . . The violence is brutal . . . depicted with the kind of detail that builds dread and suspense."

    -The New York Times

    "The author pens nightmarish images as casually as an ordinary writer would dot an 'i' or cross a 't.'"

    -The Philadelphia Inquirer

    "[Child] must be channeling Dashiell Hammett . . . Reacher handles the maze of clues and the criminal unfortunates with a flair that would make Sam Spade proud."

    -Playboy

    "Reacher is as tough as he is resourceful."

    -The Denver Post

    "Child . . . gives us one of the truly memorable tough-guy heroes in recent fiction: Jack Reacher."

    -Jeffery Deaver, author of The Bone Collector

    "I love the larger-than-life hero Jack Reacher. I grew up a fan of John Wayne's and Clint Eastwood's movies, and it's great to see a man of their stature back in business."

    -Nevada Barr

    "Jack Reacher has presence and dimension-a man you definitely want on your side. Child has a sure touch and a strong voice. Definitely a talent to watch."

    -Lynn S. Hightower
