This Reacher is set in a more current environment.
Afghanistan and Home Land Security
are part of the plot. Reacher's attempt
at hooking up with an appealing voice leads him once again up to his neck into
a nefarious plot
There isn't a lot new to say about Reacher. That isn't a bad thing, I certainly don't mind having pineapple upside down cake with absolutely no changes, again and again. Child has a formula what works.
One of the things I find particularly appealing in the Reacher books is the loyalty and camaraderie shown to Reacher and others in his former command. One scene when Turner (main squeeze of the moment) decides that Reacher isn't just a mindless, anger managed animal due to his concern about others reinforces that the main character isn't just a shallow, testosterone driven hero but someone who cares and cares deeply about others.
This book also delved into some of the reasons why Reacher became who he is and why his motivation is to cannonball in where others fear to tread water.
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.
