… the first book to feature the character Jack Reacher. …
Ex-military policeman Jack Reacher is a drifter. He’s just passing through Margrave, Georgia, and in less than an hour, he’s arrested for murder.
Not much of a welcome. All Jack knows is that he didn’t kill anybody. At least not here. Not lately. But he doesn’t stand a chance of convincing anyone. not in Margrave, Georgia. Not a chance in hell.
I enjoyed the book.
It’s Hemingway brusk. Simple. No Nobel Prize winner.
But the plot, while not perfect, was engaging and entertaining. It kept me going as a good thriller should.
I’ve already downloaded Die Trying, the second novel in the Jack Reacher series. There are already 19 books in that series. If I get hooked, I’ll be reading Reacher revenge stories for a long, long time. 🙂
