The story about a sizable theft, almost-perfect murders and vigilante justice, the One Shot novel by "Lee Child" is significantly different than Christopher McQuarrie's Jack Reacher (2012). McQuarrie's screenplay was based on Child's novel, but their similarities satisfy expectation as the book and movie compliment each other. Child's book was written like a forensic crime thriller, a literary buffet with a highly-detailed plot, while the movie was pared down to suit average movie audiences. Tom Cruise barely resembles Jack, though Cruise's intention as Jack matches 200%. The movie improves on the book in that the actors and production values play up the well-crafted, dark humor and suspense found in the book. Read the book and watch the movie, they're delicious if you like this sort of thing.
After watching the Reacher movie several times and seeing several adds for Lee Child's books, I took a look at his website. I was pleased to see so many I just might read. I also was pleased to see them listed in chronological order. I decided that the best strategy for me would be to read them in order. So "One Shot" was the tenth book I read.

There were many differences between the book and the movie. I might have liked the movie better, but I don't think that comparison is fair to either. I liked the 'new' characters and the way Reacher used a totally different set of clues to solve the mystery of James Barr in the book.

There was one paragraph that I noticed that might not have meant a lot to many readers. It had nothing to do with the plot of the book. Just Reacher musing while riding in the back seat of a car traveling through a section on the outskirts of town. It is on page 392 of the 2012 Dell Mass Market Edition paperback. It is the first paragraph after the scene break beginning with "The co-worker lived in a plane...." I agree totally with Reacher's last sentence in the paragraph.

I would like to have given the book it's fifth star, but Child is still suffering a bit from living in the UK so very long.

Can't wait to read others in the series. Mike
Say what you will about Lee Child and his long running Jack Reacher series but he's an author who really knows how to set the hook into his readers. In any of the books within just a few pages Child's got your attention and he's a master of keeping you reading until the end; it's a gift. "One Shot" is the basis for the first of the two Jack Reacher motion pictures featuring the energetic (but woefully miscast) Tom Cruise in the starring role. I'd say about the first 2/3rds of the story are very close to the movie version but the conclusion is quite different. As is typically the case with a screenplay built from a book sacrifices must be made and in this case three female characters don't make it to the big screen. There's the accused gunman's sister, a pretty local TV news reporter, and an old flame of Reacher's from his Army day's who is now a Brigadier General in the JAG Corps. Their presence is hardly critical to the narrative but they each add something with the sister probably the most important and the BG the least.

There's a mass shooting in an Indiana municipal plaza leaving five dead (a number that seems almost quaint in comparison to similar tragedies we see today), seemingly random victims of a madman. The police quickly find a suspect who has left an evidence trail that a blind man could follow. James Barr is a former Army sniper who is quickly apprehended, he isn't talking but the only thing he's said is "Get Jack Reacher". JR soon finds himself in the midwest embroiled in assisting Barr's lawyer who happens to be the daughter of the city DA. Reacher wonders why Barr asked for him, they're not friends and in fact Reacher knows some of Barr's dark past making him a questionable ally for the defense. Naturally things are not as they appear (or it would be a short story) and once JR starts digging he uncovers a complex conspiracy and facing ruthless enemies who think nothing of leaving bodies in their wake.

I enjoyed "One Shot" and happily in this novel Child avoids making any of his usual gaffs in talking about firearms or military issues which was nice for a change. I've already started "The Hard Way" and it's very good.

I almost did not read "One Shot," a Jack Reacher story, from Lee Child, as it had been made into a movie which I've seen. However, I am glad I did read it as the movie differs considerably from the book's story line. Moreover, as is often the case, although I enjoyed the movie which starred Tom Cruise, who is excellent as Reacher, I found the written story to be somewhat better.
