Book Review-One-Shot

One Shot


Lee Child


 I heard recently that there had been one hundred and seventy-three mass shootings in America in the first six months of 2017.  Not sure if I was dreaming or watching a television show.  However, guess what One Shot is all about?  Certainly not, as the title implies, about a single shot.

According to there has been 218 mass shootings in America until June 30, 2017.  Not all, I must point out, have been fatal.

One Shot is a fairly typical Jack Reacher/Lee Child novel and plot.  However, it was not until I moved it to my Lee Child bookshelf on my iPad that I realised why it seemed so familiar.  There was another copy already there!  However, for a second read I thoroughly enjoyed the story for a second time. Apparently a lone sniper decides to wipe out a few of his hometown citizens and is quickly captured by the police.  The suspect calls for Jack Reacher and that is when questions begin to be asked.  And the more questions asked the more need to be asked…and answered.

One Shot is a fast paced story with the urge to turn the next page always keeping me awake at night.

Definitely a must for Lee Child/Jack Reacher fans and definitely a four star read.
