Présentation de l'éditeur

An original short story about Jack Reacher, available exclusively as an ebook, following the success of Second Son.

Early in his military career, Jack Reacher is ordered undercover in Washington, to discover which one of four women, all staff officers on fast track careers, is leaking secrets.

The suggested method: get close to each in turn.

The obvious problem: the most receptive will be the guilty one, with an agenda of her own ... to kill the investigation - and the investigator.

‘Child has somehow forged that magical grail: a new and believable hero... when we thought all the heroes had been written.’ Observer

c'est pas cher mais c'est pas génial... le denouement arrive un peu trop vite. Reacher trouve le coupable 'a la sherlock holmes' : une intuition que lui seul peut avoir.. En tout cas pas le lecteur

pour les ultra fans de lee child seulement

First, let's remember that this is a short story. There is not enough time to get too deeply into background, back-plot and character development. "Deep Down" is a vehicle for Lee Child to give Jack Reacher fans some insight into why he is respected in his field and how he earned some of the reputation and medals that are referenced to in the full novels.

"Deep Down" puts Reacher in Washington DC at a critical time. Things were heating up in many third world countries and covert intelligence agents were a genuine threat.
In this story we see the amazing 'detecting' skills that kept Reacher at the top of his game. We are used to seeing him in a more physical environment and in much more danger. He is assigned to a mundane scenario: attend a high-order finance committee meeting and ferret out the leak. The interesting aspect is that the four suspects are all women, and poor Reacher (who is not comfortable trolling bars) must "man-up" and play the roll.

He reads the players well and plays his part perfectly. Just one twist...Reacher-style...he doesn't see the situation the way his handlers do. He is a true Detective in this story. And the reader is asked to be one too. In the end there is still a "beat-um-up" and the trademark Reacher "walk-away". But this is still a great little mystery.

As short stories go it has all the meat of a novel with fewer words. It fills in Jack Reacher's past and gives the reader a chance to appreciate his mind and not just his body.

I know many reviewers will argue with my 5* rating but I feel "Deep Down" does exactly what the author intends...a quick look into the memory bank of Jack Reacher. Try it. It's priced where a short should be priced and it IS a great read.

As familiar as I am with author Lee Child's name, I had never read any of his books until now. I usually read a couple of Kindle Singles a month, and when I noticed that "Deep Down" was the #1 Single even before its publication date, I preordered it. If "Deep Down" is representative of the Jack Reacher series, I'll be back for more.

The story is set in Washington, DC, in 1986. Narrated in the third-person point of view, the story concerns a new sniper rifle that could give US military forces an advantage in combat. It's become apparent that someone is leaking classified information. The "someone" appears to be one of four women officers, all West Pointers, who are giving testimony to a Congressional group and asking for funding for the new weapon. Reacher is called in to play an undercover role to ferret out the one who's leaking information.

It wasn't supposed to be a dangerous assignment: just sit in on the hearings, keep a low profile, and chat up the four women until he figures out which one is the culprit. Using his intuition and powers of observation, he soon learns the truth, but it's something far more sinister than a few leaks about a sniper rifle. And the truth could very well cost him his life as the story built to a suspenseful, violent climax.

Prior to reading "Deep Down," my favorite suspense thriller character was Nelson DeMille's John Corey. Now, John Corey will have to share the spotlight with Jack Reacher. The two characters are as different as night and day - Corey's wisecracking sarcasm contrasting sharply with the laconic Reacher - but both are memorable characters.

"Deep Down" included an excerpt from Child's next full-length Jack Reacher novel, A Wanted Man. I've already preordered it.

I love Jack Reacher novels and can't wait for the new ones to come out. So I ignored the poor reviews and bought this book anyway. Big mistake. The book was cheap but it is not worth anything. I guess when a writer is super popular he can write junk and still sell it.

This is nothing but a very short story probably written for a magazine. If you like Reacher, you will hate this. In many ways, this is the height of silliness: a plot-less action-less non thriller. It is as if he wrote as a part of some other book and decided to delete it. Do not buy this.

A very short story that is not anywhere close to a typical Reacher adventure. Save your money! By the time I got into the flow of the story, it was over. Disappointed...
