Ex-military policeman Jack Reacher is lying low in Key West, digging up swimming pools by hand. He is not at all pleased when a private detective starts asking questions about him. But when the detective, Costello, turns up dead with his fingertips sliced off, Reacher realizes it is time to move on.

As in Lee Child's two previous thrillers, Die Trying and Killing Floor, Reacher is soon up to his neck in lethal trouble, this time involving a vicious Wall Street manipulator, a mysterious woman (of course), and the livelihood of a whole community. Even the fate of soldiers missing in action in Vietnam is stirred into the brew.

But this is not a book by one of the new breed of U.S. thriller writers. Child prides himself on his ability, as an Englishman, to write American thrillers that are utterly convincing in milieu and toughness of action, without a trace of English sensibility. Tripwire is no exception. Every bit as lean and compulsive as its predecessors, it also builds on the freshest aspect of those books: Reacher may be a tough, epic hero, but he always remains human and vulnerable. --Barry Forshaw

From Publishers Weekly

Jack Reacher, the hulking ex-soldier readers will remember from Child's first two thrillers, Die Trying and Killing Floor, can kill with his bare hands, and sports chest muscles thick enough to stop bullets. He's actually a dynamo of a character, wily in an innocent sort of way, and the anchor to one of the best new series in thriller fiction. Here, Reacher is incognito, living the life of a drifter and digging swimming pools in Key West. When a PI from New York comes looking for him, and shortly afterwards turns up dead with his fingertips sliced off, Reacher flies north and discovers that the instigator of the search is Leon Garber, his former army commanding officer. But Garber has died the day before Reacher arrives. As Reacher finds out from Jodie Jacob, Garner's beautiful attorney daughter, Garber was helping an elderly couple to locate their son, who supposedly died in a helicopter crash during the Vietnam War. The military won't confirm the death, however, or even classify the soldier as missing in action. Pursuing the search together, Reacher and Jacob narrowly escape murder attempts by a pair of dark-suited thugs who work for an evil corporate loan shark named "Hook" Hobie, who has a hideously disfigured face and a metal hook for a right hand. Hobie is harboring a terrible secret linking him to the couple's vanished son, and he'll kill anyone who tries to discover his diabolical past. A showdown between the two men is inevitable, and when it happens, it's a beautAalmost as good as Child's skillfully laid surprise ending and the crisp and original dialogue throughout. Reacher is a complex, contemplative brute whose aversion to social and material entanglements entail very peculiar habits and ideas. He never cleans his clothes, preferring to buy new ones (going to a dry cleaner implies a commitment to return); and he's spellbinding whether kicking in doors or just kicking around a thought in his brain. Literary Guild featured alternate; feature film rights for Killing Floor and the character of Jack Reacher optioned by Mark Johnson/Polygram; rights to Jack Reacher series sold to 18 countries.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Not him, not Tom Cruise! 12 décembre 2012
Format:Poche
In this truly brutal, early book about itinerant ex-MP Jack Reacher (JR)) first published in 1999, the Twin Towers may play a bigger, more atmospheric role than in any other piece of creative writing; hosting 130.000 workers, its sounds and smells provide a powerful backdrop to what follows. Because on the 88th floor of its South Tower, Victor `Hook' Hobie holds court, an evil money man with a blotted-out past, financier of last resort for heirs of struggling family businesses, desperate to bridge a brief cash shortfall at extortionate rates. Not so with Chester Stone IV, whose firm stuck to making 8-mm cameras when video and other technologies made his company obsolete. Hobie is intent on taking over the entire firm within six weeks...

Meanwhile, JR digs up 4 tons of dirt and stones a day in the Florida Keys, creating swimming pools and works evenings as a bouncer. His work has made him top fit, 113 kg of pure muscle, when he becomes aware of being wanted, first by a NY-private eye, then by a duo of NY-gangsters in expensive suits. He denies being JR on both occasions. When he finds the private eye dead, face ruined, finger prints cut off, he flies, a bit guilt-ridden, to NY for some private inquiries.

This thriller is about two lines of inquiry with a tight deadline in the here and now, but starting 30 years apart. Induction and deduction, contacts in the armed forces (JR was made redundant only 2 years earlier), help him think and crash through walls of silence. This was only the third of a series of (now) 17 thrillers with JR as an itinerant, walk-about former MP major. And one of the best in a great series.

The bad news is that the hero of a Hollywood movie about Reacher's exploits, will be Tom Cruise... Terrible choice. His size (160+ cm) disqualifies him from being an MP for starters. Let alone stepping into JR's large shoes.

An other great book by Lee Child. Reacher follows many twists and turns, and travels to foreign countries. I feel that his books are well researched and the story keeps this reader well and truly gripped wondering where it will go next. Good book unputdowable again

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Pas très réussi 20 octobre 2013
Format:Format Kindle
Un livre d'une étonnante médiocrité. Jack Reacher ne fait pratiquement rien pendant tout le livre sauf au début et à la fin.Entre temps l'écrivain meuble, étant donné que l'action se passe autre part, action par ailleurs totalement invraisemblable. Quand Reacher intervient à la fin ( dix dernières pages) , comme par hasard il utilise le bon mot de passe! Un livre vraiment peu sérieux et peu convaincant. Le seul point non négatif c'est que ce qui concerne les autres personnages revêt un léger intérêt.

Suspense assurée, comme toujours! Une lecture très prenante! Ambiance assurée, morts violentes, Jack Reacher gagne toujours, grâce à son passé dans l'armée

Combat is about time and space and opposing forces. Like a huge four-dimensional diagram. First step is misinform the enemy. Let him think your diagram is a completely different shape. You assume all communications are penetrated, and then you use them to spread lies and deceit. You buy yourself an advantage. &quote;
