Who Is Jack Mason – A Book Review?
One of the most gripping movies I saw this week was, “Who is Jack Mason?” The movie is intense, funny, suspenseful, and at times even emotional. I won’t go too much into the plot, but I’ll say that after about half an hour of viewing the movie, you start thinking about how you’ll get home and who you’ll ask to babysit your children this weekend. I was hooked!
We follow Jack Mason, played by Matthew McConaughey, as he becomes the father of two young girls. Mason is a former CIA agent turned detective who is assigned to the case of a missing girl. He is very good at his job, but when it comes down to it, he’s also a bit of a rogue. Who else could be both a cop and a criminal Who is Jack Mason?
Jack is searching for the father of the missing girl through the local newspaper. He goes undercover as a payphone phone shop owner and contacts the man who seems to know more about the case than he does. Jack is told that the girl’s father is a very rich man who works with a top secret organization. He goes on to say that the organization is involved in black-ops operations and wants to keep things secret. Mason must use all of his investigative skills and experience to try and figure out exactly what this organization is up to.
Jack’s ex-girlfriend has been coming back to visit him and is just as clueless as he is about what her intentions are. She lets him know that she has some information on the missing girl and invites him to come over to her house. Jack says he has to run. When he arrives there, however, he’s stunned to find that the woman has put him up.
Jack’s ex-girlfriend is actually one of the FBI agents that are hunting him. She has been sent to Boston to try and find something out about a certain white-collar criminal. When she finds out that Jack is involved in this investigation, she decides to help him out by leaking information to him. The two of them become good friends and help each other through the investigation. Things quickly get out of hand and they are forced to work very hard to uncover the bad guys.
This is an exciting story about an amazing police detective and how he uses his knowledge to solve problems. I especially like how the author managed to include elements of romance throughout the book without being too subtle. Who is Jack Mason is a fun book that will make you think about famous characters from the past and possibly future. If you are planning on a birthday gift for your loved one this year and are looking for something a little different, this is definitely a great choice.
