Gone Tomorrow by, Lee Child
Gone Tomorrow opens with Jack Reacher on a late night New York subway with five other passengers - one of whom sets off Reacher's well trained radar. Reacher intervenes in the situation, which puts him in the cross-hairs of the NYPD, FBI, DIA, and a congressman running for the US Senate. What follows is a non-stop roller coaster ride of a novel.
Other than the movie starring Tom Cruise, this is my first introduction to the character. The book is extremely suspenseful and written in a way that compels you to keep turning the page. Some people may be bored with thrillers where the protagonist is ultra competent, but Child pulls it off in such a way to make Reacher relatable to the audience.
I'll be reading more Reachers in the future.
