Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

The Midnight Line by Lee Child

Midnight Line has gotten mixed reviews from my friends.  I’m not sure why.  It may be some ambiguous ethics from Jack but that should be a surprise.  Jack Reacher goes for results with an occasional blind eye to legalities.  There is a message that may not be palatable to all.  Sometimes the government and or military may be a factor in societal ills such as the current opiate crisis.  Child does not hesitate to dive in and express his fictional take on a current situation.

Reacher finds himself being told by several sources that he is avoiding some internal issue by his footloose lifestyle.   It is also suggested he is motivated by guilt.   I do not recall previous books dwelling on why Reacher is who he is with the exception of his upbringing.  Michelle Chang, of Make Me, has a very , very brief cameo. 

Reacher becomes involved with another diminutive woman.  Of course his size means that most women would be diminutive in comparison. 

Opiate addiction is addressed in the book as well as the economics of pharmaceutical malfeasance. 

Violence and mayhem are expected in a Jack Reacher book and this book is no exception.

As in most Lee Child books, I suggest you block out some time so you can read it as fast as you will be driven to do so.   I recommend the book.

Web Site:

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
