Gone Tomorrow

Title: Gone Tomorrow (Jack Reacher, No. 13)
Author: Lee Child
Year First Published: 2009
Page Count: 432
Synopsis: New York City. Two in the morning. A subway car heading uptown. Jack Reacher, plus five other passengers. Four are okay. The fifth isn’t.

In the next few tense seconds Reacher will make a choice–and trigger an electrifying chain of events in this gritty, gripping masterwork of suspense by #1 New York Times bestseller Lee Child.

Susan Mark was the fifth passenger. She had a lonely heart, an estranged son, and a big secret. Reacher, working with a woman cop and a host of shadowy feds, wants to know just how big a hole Susan Mark was in, how many lives had already been twisted before hers, and what danger is looming around him now.

Because a race has begun through the streets of Manhattan in a maze crowded with violent, skilled soldiers on all sides of a shadow war. Susan Mark’s plain little life was critical to dozens of others in Washington, California, Afghanistan . . . from a former Delta Force operator now running for the U.S. Senate, to a beautiful young woman with a fantastic story to tell–and to a host of others who have just one thing in common: They’re all lying to Reacher. A little. A lot. Or maybe just enough to get him killed.

In a novel that slams through one hairpin surprise after another, Lee Child unleashes a thriller that spans three decades and gnaws at the heart of America . . . and for Jack Reacher, a man who trusts no one and likes it that way, it’s a mystery with only one answer–the kind that comes when you finally get face-to-face and look your worst enemy in the eye.


From the Hardcover edition.

John Rambo
Profanity Violence Sexual Content
One use of p***y, and uses of s**t, b***h, d**m, and b*****d throughout. Not as bad as "The Hard Way", but still violent. A suicide by gun to the head is described in detail. There is shooting, intense hand to hand combat, including between a man and a woman. There is a video sent to the main character containing footage of people being cut open and all of their internal organs pulled out hiding nothing. Honestly, that was the grossest part. Oh, and there are some descriptions of war torture. One quick sex scene, not near as bad as "Tripwire" or "The Hard Way".
Characterization Plot Overall Rating
Strong characters Cliché Lee Child plot, but excellent plot twists. Good book, but violent and has language.
