Reacher is dropped off in the middle of nowhere Nebraska while hitch hiking. His odd sense of justice and morality is immediately assaulted by events around him as he checks into the Apollo Inn. Unable to help himself, he once again inserts his considerable bulk into a mysterious situation.
Lee Child seems to tackle a lot of current event situations in his unique Jack Reacher style. I think the insular community where the story is set may be hard to believe for folks who have never lived in a truly small town. Equally the power of family may also be a unique experience for some folks who have not seen it.
I guess Reacher’s Old Testament sense of justice must resonate with a lot of people because the books certainly are popular. I find myself tensed up reading and not wanting to put the book down. These books do not bring me to tears or cause emotional distress but they do provide a mean, visceral satisfaction when evil doers face the wrath of Reacher.
As in all the Jack Reacher books I have read so far, there is non-stop action and lots of violence.
I enjoyed the book and I recommend the book.
