The Reacher Series by LE Fitzpatrick is a splendid mix of thriller, dystopia and paranormal. Having relished the teaser short story Safe Haven and the first book in the series, The Running Game, I am looking forward to reading the sequel, Border Lines. Delighted LE joined this February blog series with her favourite character from the Reacher novels.
Introducing James Roxton – L E Fitzpatrick
From The Reacher Series
The afternoon daylight whipped at Roxy’s eyes. His tuxedo was scarred with debauchery and torn at the sleeve. He scratched at his mop of yellow hair and scanned the bleary faces around him. Despite the hangover, the vomit stains over his trousers, and his missing socks, it had been a very profitable night. He was poor of pocket but rich with information. He fished out a packet of liquorice cigarettes and ran one under his nose. Breakfast; the most important smoke of the day.
He checked his phone as he meandered down the street, looking for an update from his beloved mother as she recovered in hospital. The burns to her arms and legs weren’t as bad as some of her girls, but broken pride was difficult to mend. She’d left him just one message, some filth about one of her doctors. Roxy sent a quick text back, telling her he was close.
[The Running Game – Book 1 Reacher Series]
James “Roxy” Roxton is the outcast of the series. He’s a character wedged between the bad and the worse, double-crossing wherever he can. When he first appears in The Running Game he’s hunting down the arsonist that targeted his mother’s club, but his search sees him running into old allies, allies he could betray for a bigger prize. A notorious gambler, Roxy can’t deny his temptation – but this time the stakes are too high.
In contrast to the other character in the series, many of which are broken and burdened, Roxy is a carefree concoction of lovable rogue and despicable villain. He’s the morning hit of caffeine after a rough night. The winning hand with an extra ace up his sleeve. And I can’t wait to show you what happens to him.
