“Before Jack Reacher, there was Parker.”


Kenneth Turan reviews Gone Tomorrow by Lee Child, the latest in the Jack Reacher series. Turan compares and contrasts the Reacher character with Parker:

Reacher shares numerous traits with Parker, including living by a code of honor civilians can’t comprehend, but unlike Stark’s character he wants to do the right thing and invariably does. He’s got a more human appeal than ice-cold Parker, and he cares a lot more about women than his predecessor ever managed to.

I’ve never read one of Lee Child’s books, so I can’t comment, but thought you might find the review interesting.

I wonder if the title Gone Tomorrow was inspired by this song?:
