Not his best effort

by bdx3 on Apr 7, 2011

Every once in while you get a Reacher that starts OK but unravels at the end. In "Enemy", you get Reacher's brother, the death of his mother, a romance that goes nowhere, and and a totally anticlimactic ending. Read "Killing Floor". That's more like it.

Reacher in his Army days

by robroy on Jul 21, 2010

Reacher, (and 19 other hotshot MP investigators), find themselves transferred suddenly from fun trouble zones, to boring ones stateside. Why? Who knows, it's the Army, after all. But when his CO and mentor, Leon Garber, is also found to have been transferred, from the States to a higher level station in Korea, Jack really starts to wonder. It's the new millennium, the Army is set to start downsizing after the fall of Communism, strange things are happening. A General is found dead near Reacher's new posting, in very questionable circumstances; the General's wife is murdered in her home, near Washington; a Delta force sargent is brutally murdered and mutilated on the base. What's going on? You know Reacher will find out, even if he has to track the villains from Frankfurt to Paris to California, and points in between, along with his really cute lieutenant. Hot times in the seizieme arrondissement. And sad times, too, for Jack, when his mother is found to be sick and dying, while he needs to be elsewhere taking care of the Army's business. Maybe this is when Reacher starts to lose his taste for Army regimentation, and starts to long for freedom.Excellent, as always.

Help me find a Jack Reacher replacement!

I've read all of the Jack Reacher books in print (61 Hours is the last one of the series, as I write this), and I'm a total fan of Lee Childs and his tough-guy hero, Jack Reacher. If you're also a fan, have you read a similar series whose here is smart and tough, and whose stories are just as compelling ... Read more
