I have been reading through the Jack Reacher novels recently. I know, where have I been. I ask myself the same thing.
Lee Child is a great writer, a little formulaic but dang…It’s a good formula and it works.
Jack Reacher, in my opinion is a little like a cross between James Bond and Sherlock Holmes. Sherlock Holmes in that he connect clues no one else can, and that thing with his clothes.
I read a lot of mystery/thrillers. I have since I was in my teens, and I’m later into my 40s now. This one was an exciting thriller, I couldn’t figure it out. It kept me turning pages looking for that next clue.
In the end the clue was so cleverly hidden I totally missed it. I was surprised at the end, but when the reveal happened I finally connected the dots. Mr. Child you confused me. Hat tip to you sir.
