The Affair (A Jack Reacher Novel)

Thankfully Lee Child Is Back   ****

Send up the flares!! Lee Child is back to writing a good book again.

The last two Reacher novels had me wondering if Child had hit his prime and was getting lazy. The Affair re-establishes him as a true story teller and he gives us the Reacher we have come to expect. Always one step ahead and able to handle any situation, without being unbelievable, Reacher comes through as we would want him to.

Except for some repetition and overly chauvinistic comments, this is one of Child’s best. Let’s hope he continues to stay on track.
