This is the first Jack Reacher novel and also the first that I have read but it definitely won't be the last. This one was full of action and kept the pages turning. Reacher is a great character - not really a cop or PI - but a drifter who was formally an MP in the army. I really liked Childs' writing style as well. A lot of short sentences and fast dialog keeping the pace moving. The story itself was a little far-fetched at times and included a few coincidences and implausibilities but I would still recommend this one highly! I think Reacher may be one of my new favorite characters. Can't wait to read the next one.
