Product Description

From Amazon

When Jack Reacher suddenly decides to ask a Greyhound bus driver to let him off near the town of Margrave, Georgia, he thinks it's because his brother once mentioned that the famed blues guitarist Blind Blake died there. But it doesn't take long for the footloose ex-military policeman to discover that there are plenty of strange--and very dangerous--things going on behind Margrave's manicured lawns and clean streets that demand his attention. This first thriller by a former television writer features some of the best-written scenes of action in recent memory, a crash course in currency and counterfeiting, and a hero who is just begging to be called on for an encore. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Library Journal

The transient Jack Reacher finds himself in tiny Margrave, Georgia, and is almost immediately arrested, if briefly, as a murder suspect. Imagine his surprise when he discovers that one of the victims is his brother, a brilliant U.S. Treasury agent. Reacher himself is no slouch; a former military policeman, he can dispatch villains with an astonishing array of weapons, including various parts of his body. In the company of a straight-arrow detective and a beautiful lady cop, Reacher soon unearths a conspiracy stretching through the little town and beyond. Blood flows freely, terrible threats are made and carried out, and body parts accumulate. First novelist Child, a former television writer, stretches coincidence outrageously in this would-be noir outing, whose hero is creepily amoral, violent, and generally unpleasant. Only large pop fiction collections need consider.?Elsa Pendleton, Boeing Information Svcs., Ridgecrest, Cal.

I have been reading Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt books for the past 35 years and was looking for another strong, leading character - this is it! Jack is a guy you would want to call up when the shit hits the fan.

His belief in himself and what he can do is refreshing.

It's the first book that I read by this author. Wow, what a great, action packed thriller and, an amazing debut novel. I can't wait to read the next instalment of Jack Reacher's adventures. It takes place in a small town in Georgia, near the border with Florida. And, the plot is simmering hot just like the climate down there! Admittedly, the main Reacher character comes across as a tad too heroic and too smart/skilled to be 100% believable. Yet, I still enjoyed it greatly and kept reading along with a minimal amount of eye-rolling. Good ending too. I give it 5 stars out of 5 (excellent).

Format:Kindle Edition
Drifter and ex-military officer Jack Reacher doesn’t plan to visit the small town of Margrave, Georgia for long; however, things quickly change when he’s arrested for murder while eating at the town diner. Reacher finds himself in a prison holding cell with another Margrave resident who happens to be a banker. It isn’t long before Reacher realizes that far more sinister things are going on in Margrave than a case of mistaken identity. When he learns the identity of one of the murder victims, the crime becomes personal. Reacher not only decides to stick around but make it his mission to find the truth no matter what.

I’ve heard a lot about author Lee Child’s books over the years, yet didn’t pick one up one until recently. It was one of my smarter moves, as this is the best suspense novel I’ve read in the past twelve months. The plot is clever and the characters are believable. Reacher is absolutely intriguing. He’s experienced, clever, intuitive, and completely in control. Watching him go after bad guys provides pages of satisfying entertainment.

Although lots of thrillers offer interesting plot and characters, Child’s book is a cut above many others because he writes so well. Every paragraph flows beautifully. He’s created wonderful possibilities in a character who’s traveling all over the U.S. Of course, Reacher will be a magnet for trouble, but seeing how he get out of scrapes will be worth the many hours of great reading. There are already many books to enjoy in this highly successful series.

Please folks, DO NOT GO SEE THE MOVIE. Tom Cruise couldn't wipe Reachers backside. Reacher series is excellent and fun to read.

I've read all of his novels & anxiously awaiting his next one The whole Jack Reacher series is great, I'd recommend them all. The only problem is the movie. Jack Reacher is 6' 5" 230 lbs. Tom Cruise is 5' & maybe 150 lbs, Jack Reacher should be Dwayne Johnson instead,
