Jack Reacher - how to describe him? You want him as your protector, your brother, your lover. And yet there is that place where he is almost too scary to have around while you are sleeping. The character grows in this book and we find out more about his Army family than we have before.
Could not put it down!
I only recently began reading Lee Child's Jack Reacher books. Every one so far has been a page turner that I cannot put down. This one was no different. I love the strong, intelligent character of Reacher and that I cannot anticipate all the twists and turns the plot will make, or the final outcome. So many books of the genre are predicable from beginning to end, but so far not with Lee Child's books.
I have been reading the Reacher novels in order. This is the 3rd in the series and it seems like they are getting better and better. This one was fast-paced as usual, it introduced a love interest for Reacher, and it had a very despicable bad guy. Another high recommendation for a great series!
I've read nearly all of the Jack Reacher novels and have loved every one. But this one stands out and I enjoyed it tremendously. Very involving, deeply thought-provoking. The hero is fabulous; the bad guy is really evil. Enjoy!
