I have just finished reading Lee Child’s new book, Past Tense and for once I have to say that there were strong elements that I really did not care for. Generally, he is my go –to airplane read; Jack Reacher is a rough, tough ex-military “cop”, who always gets the bad guys and stands up for justice even if it is slightly on the vigilante side. However, in this book, there is a parallel plot – one in which he is looking for the town in which his father grew up and encounters some trouble along the way, and the second plot which is very dark and menacing. Needless to say the two intertwine and that is when the really dark elements surface!
