My rating: 4 of 5 stars
It’s about time that Lee Child brought Jack Reacher back to his Army days!
The year is 1996 and Reacher is in the Army. He is given a prestigious medal and then sent to “school.” His school appointment is witnessed and things are mysterious. When he arrives, he realizes it’s not school but an undercover assignment with one CIA operative and one FBI operative, men who were recently honored with distinction. They are given wide resources to solve a problem, a puzzle, with discretion. Frances Neagley plays a role in this book. 🙂
Reacher is an aging character. For Jack to do what he does best – bringing well deserved justice to all he meets at the advanced age of 58(?) – will not be feasible much longer. The series will need to branch out, either with other characters or with Reacher at different ages, which Child has done in the past with success.
Thank you, NetGalley, for this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
