Rate this:

Featuring Jack Reacher, hero of new blockbuster movie starring Tom Cruise, in his younger days as a Military Policeman in the US Army.

New Year's Day, 1990.

A soldier is found dead in a sleazy motel bed. Jack Reacher is the officer on duty. The soldier turns out to be a two-star general. The situation is bad enough, then Reacher finds the general's wife.

This stomach-churning thriller turns back the clock to a younger Reacher, in dogtags. A Reacher who still believes in the service. A Reacher who imposes army discipline. Even if only in his own pragmatic way...

This series is really enjoyable and this one really resonated with me for several reasons. The first one, which is kind of silly, is that Jack Reacher and I would have attended West Point at the same time if he were a real person. Because of that, his time in the Army is a time I'm very familiar with. This particular book is set during that time, which is a departure from the previous books. The second reason this one affected me was that his mother died in this book and he realized, as many of us do, that his mother was an amazing woman with hidden depths and that he would miss her for the rest of his life. The last thing about this book was that my library's copy was printed in the UK, so the British spellings of "kerb" and "tyre" were a fun change of pace.
