Tom Cruise may seem like a curious choice to play the 6ft 5in hero of Lee Child's vigilante novels, but, casting aside, Jack Reacher is a satisfyingly meaty whodunnit which has more in common with the private-eye thrillers of the 1960s and 1970s than it does with Mission: Impossible.

There's no cheating in its mystery story, either: the clues are all there for you to spot, assuming that you're as sharp-eyed as Reacher, that is.
