Past Tense (Jack Reacher 23) by Lee Child
JACK REACHER NEVER LOOKS BACK . . . UNTIL NOW.
The most hotly anticipated paperback thriller of the year follows our hero Jack Reacher on a quest into his father’s past, and climaxes in the most blood-curdling ticking time bomb of an adventure yet.
The present can be tense . . .
A young couple trying to get to New York City are stranded at a lonely motel in the middle of nowhere. Before long they’re trapped in an ominous game of life and death.
But the past can be worse . . .
Meanwhile, Jack Reacher sets out on an epic road trip across America. He doesn’t get far. Deep in the New England woods, he sees a sign to a place he has never been – the town where his father was born. But when he arrives he is told no one named Reacher ever lived there. Now he wonders- who’s lying?
As the tension ratchets up and these two stories begin to entwine, the stakes have never been higher for Reacher.
That’s for damn sure.
