Book Review of The Affair (Jack Reacher, Bk 16)

The Affair (Jack Reacher, Bk 16)
DieHard avatar reviewed on

Reacher, Reacher, Reacher. For years, I've been hearing people compare other action characters with Jack Reacher. I had no idea who Jack Reacher was. I am always loathe to get into another "series" as I am already in the middle of too many altogether and didn't want to get sucked into another. But when I saw "The Affair" and read that it was the prologue to the Jack Reacher series, I thought I'd try it out. I began "The Affair" not knowing the first thing about Reacher so I was able to read the book unhampered by lofty expectations or compromised by previous novels. I thought the book was terrific. It was fast-paced, the twists were not telegraphed in advance, the characters were interesting and the suspense was taut. The only negative is that I must now go back and start reading the Reacher series from the beginning. Well that's just great!
