I did it. After trying to save it, I finally jumped into the latest Lee Child Jack Reacher mystery. I’m not that far in but it’s turning into another great read. I was concerned that it might not be the Reacher I’ve come to enjoy because it’s set in 1997, the last year that Reacher is with the military.
He’s off to a small town in Mississippi to work behind the scenes in solving the case of a murdered woman. Why does the military brass care? Because the son of a senator is a soldier with the military base that borders the city. The last thing the brass wants is a scandal on their hands. So Reacher is there to get a head start, although it’s unclear if he’s to provide damage control.
