Outside Reading Book- Week 3- Post B
“I needed to regroup and come up with another strategy” (145). Jack Carpenter, the main character, has been in a lot of situations through out the book. From those situations he has always made plans for his method of attack, and some how most of these plans have failed him. When something in his life goes wrong, he always thinks of another strategy to try to finish what he had started. Also, “Joy had punched her attacker as he’d killed her” (140). Jack’s life has changed dramatically from this last couple of sections of the book. His life used to be his own rules, and he could sort of do whatever he wanted to. Now his main witnesses in the Skell case have been murdered, or gone missing. He only has a couple of clues about it, how that they recently had been having some cable problems, and had some cable guys come out to look at the cable, and also another clue is that they drive a white van. Which that van had been shooting at Jack driving down the highway. Due to these recent murders and Simon Skell is coming closer to being released from prison. Jack has to figure out the Skell case, the murders and his life.
