This novel introduces Jack Reacher. Jack is ex-Military Police with top draw training to keep the expertly trained soldiers in line. But after being honourably discharged from the army he has been roaming his homeland for months - drifting - and now he has found trouble in a small town in Georgia...but they have definitely picked on the wrong guy.
Prepare yourself for violence and blood through out as Jack tries to find out what is happening in this small town that has led him into being slammed in jail for murder. Who is behind the conspiracy and what are they trying to hide?
I had not read Lee Child before, but now I am hooked and I have already started his next book in chronological order Die Trying. My advice is to take the plunge if you like an intriguing detective action novel that is fast paced. Despite being written back in 1998 it has a modern feel to it.
