Jack is back! Many years ago I lived opposite a coffee shop full of second hand books for sale or swap and a very enthusiastic owner, Lou. The first time I asked her for advice on what to read next she just walked around the counter and handed me Lee Child’s first novel (Killing Floor). I worked my way through his back catalogue and get every new book when released.
The movies are good but the books are fantastic.
I am always amazed at how minimalist Lee Child’s writing is – he has the lightest of touch in describing Reacher, the situations he gets in and all those involved.
This story starts when Reacher sees a graduation ring from West Point in a pawn shop. He buys it and starts to trace the owner knowing that this isn’t something that would be given up easily.
