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

Jack Reacher is back, dragged into what looks like a series of grisly serial murders by a team of FBI profilers who aren't totally sure he's not the killer they're looking for, but believe that even if he isn't, he's smart enough to help them find the real killer. And what they've got on the ex-MP, who's starred in three previous Lee Child thrillers (Tripwire, Die Trying, Killing Floor), is enough to ensure his grudging cooperation: phony charges stemming from Reacher's inadvertent involvement in a protection shakedown and the threat of harm to the woman he loves.

The killer's victims have only one thing in common--all of them brought sexual harassment charges against their military superiors and all resigned from the army after winning their cases. The manner, if not the cause, of their deaths is gruesomely the same: they died in their own bathtubs, covered in gallons of camouflage paint, but they didn't drown and they weren't shot, strangled, poisoned, or attacked. Even the FBI forensic specialists can't figure out why they seem to have gone willingly to their mysterious deaths. Reacher isn't sure whether the killings are an elaborate cover-up for corruption involving stolen military hardware or the work of a maniac who's smart enough to leave absolutely no clues behind. This compelling, iconic antihero dead-ends in a lot of alleys before he finally figures it out, but every one is worth exploring and the suspense doesn't let up for a second. The ending will come as a complete surprise to even the most careful reader, and as Reacher strides off into the sunset, you'll wonder what's in store for him in his next adventure. --Jane Adams -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Pressestimmen

"'Reacher is as dyed-in-the-wool an American action man as Hollywood could hope for...manages that tough trick of seeming at once battle-hardened, footloose, sexy and compassionate: the sort of ladies' man that Peter Millar, The Times" (The Times)

"'Within a short space of time, Child has gleaned enviable recognition for his tautly written thrillers...This tale will ensure that many a train stop is missed'" (The Good Book Guide)

"'In three novels Lee Child has established a franchise with his maverick drifter, the ex-US military cop Jack Reacher, and shown that, for an Englishman, he can produce passable American. His fourth, The Visitor, offers an efficient mix of hard-boiled style with lots of lip and a revivial of the classic locked-room mystery...Tight plotting, pace and high mileage'" (Guardian)

"'Relentlessly fast-paced and beautifully structured...Amply fulfils the promise of its predecessors. Reacher is the sort of hero no woman could help falling for, and he looks destined to have a very long life'" (Daily Mail)

"'A thumping good read...This is an excellent thriller of the Patricia Cornwell variety. Gripping and well-constructed...Impossible to put down'" (Daily Express)

...it was also published as "Running Blind", so you may not want to order the same book, just because it has a different title ;-)
No matter what title, it still is a good read, and when you're a fan of the "Reacher" series, this one is one of the best.

Format: Taschenbuch
Two women left the army after sexual harassment proceedings, both are killed and ex Army MP Jack Reacher knew both of them. As a perfect psychological match, Reacher is arrested by the FBI, but is released when another woman is murdered. Now Reacher has to use his skills to clear his name, and to do the Army and FBI's work for them. (This book is released as "Running Blind" in the US and as "The Visitor" in UK.)
This book features a new twist in writing style - the author Lee Child lets the reader know about the thoughts of the killer in between! These parts are also quite interesting even if the reader does not get any useful hints towards the identity of the killer.
The book is well written, Reacher is charismatic and intelligent as ever, the pace is great and I hardly could stop reading the book. Even if the identity of the killer is really a big surprise and took me completely off guard I am not quite convinced by it since I do not think it was completely logical and especially believable.
"The Visitor" is Lee Child's fourth book and to my opinion it is a lot better than his second and third novel ("Die Trying" + "Tripwire)". Unfortunately it does not reach the brilliance of his first book "Killing Floor". Therefore I could not rate it with the full 5 stars.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
He is a hero, trying to right the injustices in his part of the world. Though at times he goes outside the law, he always makes life better for the person he is protecting. At a new Italian restaurant in New York City, former MP Jack Reacher observes two thugs hitting on the owner for protection money. When they return to collect their fee, Jack provides personal payment, sending both punks to the hospital.

FBI agents greet Jack with the knowledge that they believe he is a serial killer targeting female soldiers complaining about sexual harassment. Apparently, Jack knew three victims, but he has the perfect alibi since FBI agents had Jack under surveillance at the time the fourth murder occurred. The agents want Jack to help them uncover the identity of the killer because a department profiler insists that his personality is a match to that of the perpetrator. Jack refuses until they threaten his girlfriend. Jack begins his unique gathering of information that leads him to conclude that the FBI is traveling down the wrong paradigm, leaving former women in uniform in jeopardy unless he can persuade the department to change course.

RUNNING BLIND is an exciting thriller starring a sensitive, honorable person struggling with keeping one foot in the civilized world. Anyone who has "profiled" F. Paul Wilson's "Repairman Jack" novels will realize the characters share many traits with the biggest difference being that Reacher is grounded in the physical realm while Repairman Jack deals with supernatural elements. The crux of this mystery lies in the intensity of the killer whose extraordinary energy matches that of Jack, thus freshening up the serial killer tale. With more novels like this one, Lee Child has the talent to become a superstar.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I enjoyed the previous Jack Reacher books - except for the author's irritating use of the word "guy". The plots were intricate, yet (almost) believable. Good movie material. This one, however, was stupid. OK, I'm not a citizen of the U.S.A., and in fact I have never been there. But really - the F.B.I. threatening and blackmailing Reacher? the F.B.I. shredding the Constitution in order to compel one retired MP into helping them? No. Never. Not in a thousand years. Child, it seems, has Reached the end of Reacher. The plot's flimsy, the story's unbelievable, the writing... Childish.
