My name is Jack Reacher.
No middle name, no address.
I’ve got a rule: People mess with me at their own risk.
You don’t have to break the rules if you make the rules. Case in point: Jack Reacher, the two-fisted, quick-witted, “current poster-boy of American crime fiction”. The brainchild of #1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child, Reacher is a freelance troubleshooter with a mysterious past -- and a serious passion for justice. Now the hard-won knowledge and hard-hitting strategies of fiction’s toughest tough guy are within every thriller reader’s reach -- in a rapid-fire rundown of the trade secrets, tried-and-true tricks, and time-honored tactics that separate the man in the street from the man to beat.
Rule 1. When in doubt, drink coffee.
Rule 2. Never volunteer for anything.
Rule 3. Don’t break the furniture.
Rule 4. Only one woman at a time.
Rule 5. Show them what they’re messing with.
Please note: Jack Reacher’s Rules is a compilation of advice, wisdom, and facts from the Jack Reacher series of novels by #1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child. It features an introduction by Lee Child, but is not a Jack Reacher novel.« less
Always enjoy Jack but there wasn't much to this book. I'm rereading One Shot right now. Pretty bummed that Tom Cruise decided he would make a good Reacher. I think 80 year old Clint Walker would be more believable. At least he'd be the right size!
This is simply a compilation of factoids and "rules" that former MP Jack Reacher follows in his travels. Don't come here looking for a short story or a plot, because there isn't one. For fans of the series, it's worth a look.
