||A book “One Shot” by Lee Child
||A former military sniper is arrested for the random shooting of five people on a river bank, and under interrogation asks for Jack Reacher. Reacher turns up and and in co-operation with the attourney for the defence tries to prove the innocence of the sniper. First – were the shootings really random?
||Quite a bit of shooting with a variety of weapons, some martial arts, and one extensive car chase. A Chevrolet Camaro features briefly. An increasing level of tension as the main players are threatened by an apparently unbeatable foe.
||I like heroes who are more or less invincible so we are only left wondering how he (or she) will get out of this one, not whether they will get out. I was not really convinced by the proposal that someone can live without even a change of underpants or that they would discard a machine gun to engage in hand to hand combat, but other than that I join everyone who gave it a tick up.
