Jack Reacher, for those readers who like plenty of action, appears in 13 novels by Lee Child. They’ve been around for a while, but I just discovered them, each easily read in a day or so. Don’t be put off by the Tom Cruise character in the movie – Reacher is bigger and better. A former military cop – 6’6″ and 250 pounds – Reacher is trained to catch the baddest of the bad – members of the Seals, Rangers, and Delta Force so battling with run-of-the-mill psychopaths, mobsters and criminals is a walk in the park.
It’s mind-candy to be sure, but exciting and provides a vicarious thrill to all of us wish we were the masters of our own destiny, able to dispense justice and right wrongs according to our own code.
