I had the time, during summer vacation, to finish the fifth book in Lee Child’s Jack Reacher series.
One of the more intriguing Reacher stories to date. Not as much action as previous works. But there is far more suspense. I appreciate how the author takes a small town situation into makes a large-scale disaster. Jack Reacher is always at the right place at the right time. He is destined to set things right – even if he has to do it the wrong way.
I really enjoy Reacher for what it is. An easy read. Mysterious. All and all – just fun. Sure, there are lots of holes in the narrative. Quirky quotes and predictable plot-twists. But Child is good at what he does.
Here is where I rank each installment thus far…
- Tripwire (#3): Vietnam and Wall-Street
- Killing Floor (#1): Currency and Counterfeiting
- Echo Burning (#5): Immigration and Domestic Violence
- Running Blind (#4): Sexual Harassment and Serial Killers
- Die Trying (#2): Extremists and Militias
