At long last, I have tried out Lee Child and a Jack Reacher novel! I wasn't disappointed in this very tall, loner of a hero or in Child's ability to keep me turning pages as fast as I could. The story pounds along as Reacher makes his way around Manhattan, followed by all kinds of people. I think the inclusion of Theresa Lee and Jacob Mark as slightly more fleshed out characters was good, otherwise, there's just not a lot of time to get to know many of the players very well. I will warn that there are some pretty gritty details as the story swells, but it didn't stem my enjoyment of the book.
