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.

When you enter the world of Jack Reacher, Lee Child's indomitable ex-MP, you never know what to expect. You can certainly expect exciting action scenes, plenty of fisticuffs, and a large dose of graphic violence. "Tripwire" is no exception. The book is an excellent read. Reacher finds himself caught up in the investigation of a star helicopter pilot missing in action in Vietnam and assumed dead. The boy's parents, in grief for thirty years, send a PI to find Reacher, only to have the PI killed hours after meeting with Reacher. From that point on, the plot twists and turns, always sustaining your interest. Although the ending is easily predictable from the start, it's fun riding along with Child on the inevitable denouement. Hook Hobie is an extremely nasty villain and presents a formidable challenge to Mr. Reacher. His henchman are likewise pretty despicable. Some of the supporting characters are really well written, particularly the victimized Marilyn Stone and her real-estate agent friend, Sheryl. Marilyn displays quite a bit of spit and vinegar and loyalty to her milktoast husband, and plays a hard game with Hobie, for a while. Sheryl, meanwhile, displays a tremendous amount of loyalty to her friend.
A great book but some additional points of concern or discussion. I have found it hard to accept Jack Reacher's obvious inability to function "normally" in the world. A drifter at heart, he doesn't seem to want to belong in anyone's world----he falls in love at the drop of a hat, but is not willing to make any commitments, always seeming self-centered in his inability to be "tied down." He doesn't have a job, he's never had a home of his own, and he avoids reality as it were a plague.

After loving Lee Child's first two novels, I am very sorry to report my disappointment with this his third effort, "Tripwire." He took approximately 100 pages to set the scene, which I would forgive but once that was done I still was easily able to put down this book - quite a departure from his previous works. The hero, Reacher, seemed somehow more seedy and more of a loser than we want him to be. He lacked direction or dedication or something, which he previously had displayed with great enthusiasm. Jack Reacher just wandered through this 'mystery' and was more interested in realizing the love he had only dreamt about in his earlier years. That was a very nice aside, but I felt no sense of action or terror in the journey to complete the mission and find the murderer. The villian was evil enough, but more disgusting than frightening. Also, in a well written mystery I am seldom able to determine the 'answer' prior to the final accounting. I was ahead of the author this time, and just waited for Reacher to figure it out. Please, Lee Child, I know from your first two books you do have a gift for writing; do not rush to print to satisfy your publisher, agent or whoever dictates when your novel is ready. You can and have done much better.

Format: Taschenbuch
In Tripwire, ex-MP drifter Jack Reacher develops as a character in several interesting ways. Where in Killing Floor and Die Trying Reacher was a Rambo who changes his clothes daily by buying a new set, in Tripwire Reacher takes on more human qualities that make him more appealing. Reacher must come to terms with what he really wants from life and that vulnerability also increases his attractiveness as a character.

If you are like me, you'll root harder for him to succeed than in the earlier two books where the danger and the violence seemed more contrived.

Tripwire also has a very dastardly villain of the sort that everyone loves to hate.

The book's greatest strength is that you enjoy the journey of good overcoming evil. Most action novels fail to put that point across as convincingly as this one does.

The plot itself is very predictable, but for once I didn't mind the lack of true suspense. I wanted to savor the inevitable victory.

As the story opens, Reacher has stopped drifting and has settled down to digging swimming pools by hand in Key West. A PI comes looking for him, and Reacher deflects the search out of habit. The PI soon turns up dead with some unusual crime scene details, and Reacher knows he has to get to the bottom of what's going on. That search leads him to open some new doors into the tenderest connections from his past, and Reacher finds himself thinking about a new way of life.

This book will undoubtedly annoy those who want their Vietnam-related stories to be realistic and balanced. The book will also annoy those who want a lot of suspense in their action books. Finally, the book will annoy those who don't like a tricked-up ending. This one is clearly a little too cute for its own good.

But I came away anxious to read the next entry in the series. I'm off to the library!

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Reacher, the protagonist in "Tripwire" is a hero. A salt of the earth guy with solid morals and streetsmarts. He really doesn't want to get involved with anyone else's life - and doesn't want anyone involved with his. But once people lacking his decency force their way into his life . . . well, they get hurt. And you feel good because they do. Real good. Granted, there are few bumps in the plot, but they easily tossed aside because you want to move on to the next page and the one after that to learn what happens. Reacher is in one of those fallow periods every man would love to have . . . no fixed abode, no obligations, no responsibilities and no thought of tomorrow. He's digging swimming pools in Key West. Someone from up north is looking for him . . . and the regulated mayhem begins. Reacher is not all action. He thinks. He feels. And best of all, he's human. You can finish "Tripwire" and feel exhilarated because you've just spent some time in the company of a genuine hero. And in this day and age of Clinton morality, that's a real change. A welcome one.
Jerry
