    Really good read

    A must for all Reacher fans. This one goes right to the beginning and sets up Reacher for the whole series. Lee Child also gives us an insight into Reacher's family background and his early influences. His personality though remains the same and this is another sure shot page turner. Unlike the future when he takes the law into his own hands here he is with the law and sent by his boss to investigate a murder. Enjoyable read. Meet some of the characters who you will come across later in the s...

    First of the Jack Reacher

    The book tells you, why Reacher left MP. Tells you why he is always found as drifter. His fighting skills. Foundation of each and every quality Reacher has, foundation is there in the book.

    So really want to know about the history of Jack Reacher, go ahead and grab this book.

    One more point the book do have a great murder mystery plot but a weak climax to which will tend to let you run in the end rather than keeping interest till the end.

    thanks will come back with review of The Firm by Jo...

    A good read.

    A suspense novel from one of the masters of crime writing. A good read. A must read for the fans of Lee Child franchise. This book is a prequel set six months before Child's first novel, Killing Floor and forms the backdrop of the explosive circumstances under which Jack Reacher's career in the United States Army was terminated.

    Kick-Ass !!

    This is vintage quintessential Lee Child at its best. Reacher is young and is doing what he does best. A must read for the fans of this particular franchise. Its a prequel to killing floor but at the same time there is this beautiful continuity. Quite sweetly ironical. Amazing read !
