About this deal

And then, many miles away, when Reacher goes to the general's house to break the sad news, he finds a battered corpse: the general's wife. Although this is the eighth book to be published in the Jack Reacher series, it's a prequel to the others. Kramer is, or rather was, a two-star general in Armored Branch, staying in a flea-bitten motel while en route to a hush-hush, no-big-deal conference at Fort Irwin in California. Every time they thought they found some new clues, it turned out that what they got led them to nowhere.

For the most part, this story was so convoluted, twisting around on itself and so full of betrayals! We work closely with publishers and authors to ensure that we offer the best books on the market for your child. The two are of like minds when it comes to the investigation and together they start a chain reaction that will have, even the top brass, worried. There was so much happening that I wished I could turn the pages fast enough because I desperately wanted to find out the truth behind these murders! This was one of the earlier novels, and I think the author has now grown into the character and spends more time with Reacher and less with contrived plots.Because this soldier's son is on his way into the darkness, where he finds a tangled drama of desperate desires and violent death and a conspiracy more chilling, ingenious, and treacherous than anyone could have guessed. Known for his hold-your-breath action scenes, Child proves equally adept at portraying how a criminal investigation uses the smallest of building blocks (a yogurt container) to construct a compelling circumstantial case. Căderea comunismului a luat prin surprindere armată americană, care nu mai avea motive să mențină un număr mare de angajați. In this novel we see Jack in the army which Is something I'd been hoping for plus we got a bit of back story with his mother and his relationship with Joe, his brother.

It seemed that the plot was engineered to take Reacher to lots of locations, and ultimately it was getting a bit boring.

Reacher is informed that, due to the charge filed by Carbone, he will be demoted to the rank of Captain unless he denies it, which his lawyer encourages him to do. Even though I felt like the action took a backseat to the suspense, it definitely had me hooked throughout. I enjoyed seeing Reacher deal with the bad eggs of the military, dead pan comments and simple but oh so effective cutting comments. I love the character of Jack Reacher, but sometimes the author makes the plots a little too convoluted.

Monsieur Pierre Lamonnier knew her when Josephine Moutier was Béatrice and rescuing downed soldiers. While almost everyone else is out celebrating, Reacher is the Military Police duty officer on the post when a two star general is found dead in a sleazy motel thirty miles from the base. With his French-born mother dying—and divulging to her son one last, stunning secret—Reacher is forced to question everything he once believed…about his family, his career, his loyalties—and himself.

My first introduction to Lee Child, to Jack Reacher and to the multi-talented Kerry Shale and I can't wait to download my next choice. As always with Child's writing, there are a lot of details and information woven into this story but it doesn't disrupt the flow/pace of the suspense as it continuously builds to a dynamic climax.

My heart raced, I cried for people like Kramer and Carbone for what they had to hide just so they could do what they loved [in the army!
