THE FIRST JACK REACHER NOVEL
The bestselling novel featuring the “wonderfully epic hero”(People) who inspired the hit films Jack Reacher and Jack Reacher: Never Go Back.
Ex-military policeman Jack Reacher is a drifter. He’s just passing through Margrave, Georgia, and in less than an hour, he’s arrested for murder. Not much of a welcome. All Reacher knows is that he didn’t kill anybody. At least not here. Not lately. But he doesn’t stand a chance of convincing anyone. Not in Margrave, Georgia. Not a chance in hell.

A bit unrealistic
Well I first had a problem with the character because he is/was a Officer in the MP corps who investigated murders and collected a lot of skills that he drew on in this book.
Mot much research done on the authors part. Officers in the MP corps are not investigators. That falls into MPI and CID which are NCO's and Warrant Officers. Along with a set of skills no army MP would pick up in their time in. A civilian cop perhaps but not an MP.
Now don't get me wrong the book is a good read, but the main character is a bit "too good".
Then again maybe I am being a bit harsh considering I actually know what an MP's background should be.
Action packed thriller
Jack Reacher is a hero and hurray to Lee Child for bringing this action hero to life. Lovable and faulted, Reacher sets an interesting pace with the conflict of duty and conscience at the forefront! FABULOUS BOOK. I COULD NOT PUT MY PHONE DOWN!
I love this guy. Jack reacher is the first person I would pick for my side in a fight. Always thinking 5 steps ahead.
