A fascinating, swaggeringly confident performance Sunday Times When youre as big and rough as Jack Reacher – and you have a badly set, freshly busted nose – it isnt easy to hitch a ride in Nebraska. At last, hes picked up by three strangers – two men and a woman. Within minutes it becomes clear theyre all lying about everything – and theres a police roadblock ahead. There has been an incident, and the cops are looking for the bad guys . . . Will they get through because the three are innocent? Or because the three are now four? Is Reacher just a decoy? Although the Jack Reacher novels can be read in any order, A Wanted Man follows on directly from the end of Worth Dying For.
