Kurzbeschreibung

1. April 2005

Featuring Jack Reacher, hero of the new blockbuster movie starring Tom Cruise, in his younger days as a Military Policeman in the US Army.

New Year's Day, 1990.

A soldier is found dead in a sleazy motel bed. Jack Reacher is the officer on duty. The soldier turns out to be a two-star general. The situation is bad enough, then Reacher finds the general's wife.

This stomach-churning thriller turns back the clock to a younger Reacher, in dogtags. A Reacher who still believes in the service. A Reacher who imposes army discipline. Even if only in his own pragmatic way...

Mehr über den Autor

Lee Child verdankt seine außerordentliche Karriere als Krimiautor einer eher unangenehmen Lebenssituation: 1995 wurde ihm wegen einer Umstrukturierung sein Job beim Fernsehen gekündigt. Der Produzent so beliebter Krimiserien wie "Prime Suspect" ("Heißer Verdacht") oder "Cracker" ("Für alle Fälle Fitz") machte aus der Not eine Tugend und versuchte sich als Schriftsteller. Was selbst wie ein Roman klingt, entspricht in diesem Fall der Wahrheit: Bereits mit seinem ersten Thriller um den Ermittler Jack Reacher landete Child einen internationaler Bestseller. Er war zugleich Auftakt der heute mehrfach preisgekrönten "Jack-Reacher"-Serie. Child, der 1954 in Coventry in England geboren wurde, ist heute in den USA und Südfrankreich zu Hause.

Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Lee Child is a quiet, undemonstrative man who is phlegmatic about his success in the thriller field. The Enemy will no doubt attract the usual enthusiastic acclaim, and it deserves to. One thing that is guaranteed to please Child is the open-mouthed astonishment of American readers who learn that this writer of the most idiomatic American thrillers (with brilliantly realised US locales) is actually English. But there's never a sense of striving for effects in such taut Child novels as Killing Floor and Die Trying. Child simply delivers the goods, US-style--and The Enemy is no exception.

Child's usual protagonist, the tough and resourceful Jack Reacher, is in North Carolina on New Year's Day, 1990. Elsewhere, world-shaking events are underway, such as the tearing down of the Berlin Wall. But Jack's job as a Military Police Duty Officer has him concerned with what initially seem to be less significant happenings: a soldier has been found dead in a sleazy motel and when Jack goes to the house of the soldier (a two-star general) to inform his wife, he finds her also dead. Needless to say, events in another part of the globe are having fatal repercussions in the US, and Reacher is soon up to his neck, with the body count rising.

As a glimpse into the early life of Jack Reacher (now securely one of the most admired heroes in contemporary thriller writing), this is meat and drink to the Child aficionado. Child foregrounds characterisation in his pacy narratives, and this eighth outing for Jack has all the adrenalin-producing qualities of its predecessors. --Barry Forshaw -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Pressestimmen

"'Complex, classy crime'" (Mirror)

"'One of the best writers in this genre ... And nobody does it better'" (The Sunday Telegraph)

"'The thing about Lee Child's books is that you can't put the damn things down... there's something about his writing that's addictive. The Enemy is no exception...Superb'" (INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY)

"

'Lee Child fans will love this prequel to the bestselling Jack Reacher novels. At last Child shares the events that shaped the maverick hero of his last six novels into an ass-kicking, irreverent good guy. If you're one of the few people who haven't sampled the sublime thrill of a Child novel, this blast from the past is the best place to start'

" (SCOTTISH DAILY RECORD)

"An unforgettable hero...may be the best Reacher book yet." (Newsweek)

Von ALu69
Format:Taschenbuch
December 29th, 1990, elite military cop Jack Reacher all of a sudden is transferred from Panama to Fort Briggs, North Carolina/USA. And on the first day of 1990 his skills as a Military Police investigator are already needed. A General dies of a heart attack in a cheap motel near by. First problem: why did the General make a several hundred mile detour on his way only to spend his night in the hotel? Second problem is that he wears a condom. So who was with him and why is his suitcase missing? Third big problem is that his wife is killed only two hours later and more than hundred miles away. All only a strange coincidence? Unfortunately for Reacher this is only the beginning. More people are transferred all of a sudden, the body count starts to rise and Reacher finds himself being framed for the whole mess. But why? Is it all a big cover up? If it is - what for? Reacher realizes that the clock is ticking and without a real clue he has only little time left to find out what the hell is going on...

This time Lee Child steps back in time to introduce a younger Jack Reacher - one that is still in the army. Therefore the hero is not the loner or drifter already but right where he belongs and where he originally learned and used his skills. As in the previous novel "Persuader" the author uses the I-narrator style which limits the reader's view but reveals a lot of Reacher's thoughts etc. The interesting effect is that the reader knows only as much as the main character.
Since this story takes place in 1990 one also learns about Reacher's brother and his mother. Those parts are interesting to get to know the Reacher character but do not really contribute anything to the story. It could have been shortened or left out.

4.0 von 5 Sternen An Early Look at Reacher as MP 26. Oktober 2005
Von Donald Mitchell TOP 500 REZENSENT
Format:Taschenbuch
The Enemy moves out of chronological order to provide a Jack Reacher adventure while he was still an MP. That's easier to do with an action hero.

If you haven't read any other books in the series, you may actually like the series better if you start with this book rather than Killing Floor which was the first Jack Reacher novel written. If you decide to do that, then go back and read Killing Floor next and follow the chronological order of publication thereafter.

The most unusual characteristic about Jack Reacher is that he is so unconnected to people and places. The Enemy does a fine job of translating that quality into a military setting.

Mr. Child has decided to focus on an unusual period in recent military history: The moment when the Berlin Wall was falling. The story does a good job of developing how a military organization adjusts to its victories.

For those who want to know more about Jack Reacher, the book is also interesting for what it reveals about his family life.

The action in the story builds around the circumstances that follow the unexpected death of a general in a place where he wasn't expected to be found. Reacher is brought in to cover up the details to protect the Army and the family. But he's soon on the trail of crimes . . . and an officialdom that seems committed to covering up those crimes as well.

As usual, Reacher takes it on himself to find out the answers . . . regardless of orders and the personal consequences.

Anyone who has been in the military will delight in his many carefree challenges to authority.

The story itself is more than a little far-fetched, sort of along Tom Clancy lines. But the action redeems the lack of credibility in the story.

Have fun with this one.

Superbly written as usual. Reacher in his army days is just as good as after them. Once started, difficult to put down.

Even so the idea is obvious remembering the changes in the 1990s Lee Child made this story really great by having ideas not expected when starting the book

5.0 von 5 Sternen Jack Reacher and why he was demoted
Not much to say about this except it's Jack Reacher! Those who know him know what to expect and won't be disappointed. Those who don't know him should enjoy this action anti-hero.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Lee Child: The Enemy
Jack Reacher: Immer einfach der Über-Macho mit aufgepappter menschlicher Komponente - man muss ihn einfach mögen! Die Sprache ist etwas holzfäller-artig.

Kaum zu glauben, aber der Mann, der selbst abgebrühten Krimilesern das Blut in Wallung bringt, hat mit 'The Enemy' schlicht versagt. Lesen Sie weiter...
