L’origine del mito: come e perché Jack Reacher ha scelto la giustizia e la libertà a ogni costo Sempre al numero 1 delle classifiche USA e UK Scelta difficile per un uomo giusto. Carter Crossing, Mississippi, marzo 1997. La ragazza è bellissima, vestita di bianco e con la gola tagliata. La cittadina è piccola e non conterebbe nulla se nelle vicinanze non sorgesse Fort Kelham, un’importante base dell’esercito, in cui sono di stanza due compagnie di Ranger, una delle quali è comandata dal capitano Riley, figlio del senatore che presiede la Commissione sui servizi armati. La vittima era uscita con Riley, ma non solo. Altre due ragazze sono state uccise tempo prima nello stesso modo. Ed entrambe avevano avuto rapporti con Riley. Le indagini vengono affidate, sotto copertura, a Jack Reacher, maggiore della polizia militare. Per Reacher è la scelta più difficile: nascondere la verità vuol dire non riuscire più a vivere con se stesso. Ma denunciarla vuol dire non riuscire più a vivere dentro l’esercito…

LEE Child Sells Out I love Jack Reacher so much and I feel like Lee Child has just sold him out for money. It is so offensive that Child sold the screen rights to Tom Cruise so he could play Reacher. It didn't seem to matter that Reacher is a foot taller and a hundred pounds heavier just to name two Leggi tutto
I should give The Affair zero stars just on principle. Lee Child apparently agrees with the casting of that little dickhead Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher. Really? YGBSM!! There is no freaking way that Cruise can remotely approach the kick-ass power of Reacher in a fight with a group of bad guys. Here i Leggi tutto
Let me say first that I will always choose to listen to a Jack Reacher novel instead of reading it simply because I am so impressed with the talent of Dick Hill in bringing the series to life. The Reacher series is a favorite of mine, and I'm not sure exactly why, since I am not a fan of vigilante ju Leggi tutto
I'm a big fan of the Jack Reacher series. This is a reread for me and I loved every minute of it!
As my second book in the Jack Reacher series (although #16 in publication and a prequel in sequence), The Affair wasn't a shabby audio read at all. The narrator Dick Hill has a terse, noirish delivery that adds to the story. He sounds a bit older than I would associate with Reacher, but he definitel Leggi tutto

This is the sixteenth Jack Reacher novel and it's among the best of them all. For the second time, Lee Child goes back to tell a story from earlier in Reacher's life and this is the Jack Reacher origin story. It takes place back in 1997, when Reacher was still in the Army. Reacher loves the Army and Leggi tutto
Mostly solving a mystery. It’s fun because it’s Reacher. STORY BRIEF: Books 1 to 15 in the Jack Reacher series flow in chronological order. All of them are set after Reacher left the army in March 1997 except for Book 8 (The Enemy) and this one. This book 16 goes back in time and is set in March 1997. Leggi tutto
