Jack Reacher never fails. The story keeps you guessing and builds to the very end. Lee Childs researches his topics and there is always something to be learned along with great characters and fast-paced action.

Jack Reacher has always been my favorite character! This book was good, but something was off and I can't put my finger on it. I won't ever stop reading about Reacher!

Oh, what a joy to find a book once again I'd very likely be late for my own wedding because I couldn't put it down. It's been a long time. But then it has also been a long time since I last got my hands on a Jack Reacher book by Lee Child. Prior to 2018, every time a Jack Reacher novel was published I grabbed up a copy as soon as I could always insisting on a hardcover first edition which I faithfully saved so I now own a complete first edition collection up through book number 23, having read each one at least once and most twice. But then something happened so I missed number 24, Lee Child's Past Tense until I recently acquired a copy. Well, for Jack Reacher fans, it will be no surprise that for me this one proved to be one of his best ever. When it comes to Lee Child (actually a pen name for British thriller writer Jim Grant), in my mind there is none quite like him when it comes to his unique writing style as well as his story-telling ability and, best of all, the awe-inspiring character he has created, Jack Reacher. Not all Jack Reacher adventures are quite as fast-moving as Past Tense, though most are. But this one, for the first time in a while adds some new information into Reacher's past, as the title suggests. For Jack Reacher fans, this one is a definite must-read. Five stars all the way! Now on to Child's latest, Blue Moon, a copy of which I've also just acquired.

Each Jack Reacher book is interestingly. (Wished the 2nd season on Prime would come out. Glad there's no Tom Cruise)
There is always a new plot and theme.
