Reacher takes a stroll through a small Wisconsin town and sees a class ring in a pawn shop window: West Point 2005. A tough year to graduate: Iraq, then Afghanistan. The ring is tiny, for a woman, and it has her initials engraved on the inside. Reacher wonders what unlucky circumstance made her give up something she earned over four hard years. He decides to find out. And find the woman. And return her ring. Why not?So begins a harrowing journey that takes Reacher through the upper Midwest, from a lowlife bar on the sad side of small town to a dirt-blown crossroads in the middle of nowhere, encountering bikers, cops, crooks, muscle, and a missing persons PI who wears a suit and a tie in the Wyoming wilderness.The deeper Reacher digs, and the more he learns, the more dangerous the terrain becomes. Turns out the ring was just a small link in a far darker chain. Powerful forces are guarding a vast criminal enterprise. Some lines should never be crossed. But then, neither should Reacher....

The Midnight Line (Jack Reacher #22) Reviews
This is one of the best Jack Reacher books ever. It's not even in comparison to the last two so-so books. It is simply one of the best and has everything in it that has made us fall in love with Reacher and follow the 6'5", 250 pound former military policeman who ambles across America with no real destination or goal in mind. He travels lightly with only a toothbrush and buys his clothes at thrift stores rather than launder him. He has that American wanderlust that has led to the settlement of o ...more
I’d taken a brief sojourn from the Reacher books. For a while they’d felt samey and contrived. The big man was also starting to feel way too predictable with his habits, his and his incessant coffee drinking and the like. And not only that, the stories were now clearly formulaic and, frankly, dull. But then a friend lent me this book and I was glad to have it, pleased to be meeting up with the modern day knight errant again.
This time he’s in Wyoming, a state bigger than the United Kingdom but wi ...more
*This review has drawn ire from a few fellow readers of the series. While I welcome a healthy conversation where I might be right or wrong, it would be appreciative if the conversation stayed productive without being impolite. This review represents my humble opinion among many other good reviews that found this book to be great. I can appreciate a variety of opinions on the book but I would kindly ask again that the conversation stay polite. Thank you.
Ugh. That would be the one word to describe ...more
I really enjoyed this twenty second outing with Jack Reacher. It started out smart and funny and developed into an excellent story.
Of course Jack's latest girlfriend from the last book disappeared instantly. Not surprising really since he doesn't own a suitcase let alone a house. Not good relationship material. Good story material though which of course is why we all keep reading him:)
Basically a brilliant way of passing a few hours without overtaxing the brain. One star off for a poor ending. A ...more
For the 22nd time, Lee Child's creation of Jack Reacher, came rip-roaring back to life onto the streets, alleyways and bars. Right at home. Although getting a little played out, I'm still captivated by the life of the fifty-something year-old wandering nomad - American Hero. The main draw of this popular character-driven narrative. At the drop of a hat, he went whenever and wherever the wind blew. Sounds like retirement. Although I can't say much for his choice of lifestyle. No suitcase, a tooth ...more
Jack Reacher. You could call him Bigfoot. You could call him The Hulk. But you could never call him Tom Cruise.
Cue Carly Simon: Nobody does it better. Makes me feel sad for the rest.
I read and enjoy a lot of thriller books and it seems by comparison that some writers are trying way too hard with less result. Child just makes it seems so darn easy. Additional props for unexpected humorous bits. "Cowboys are the worst.. Not much I can do to them that a horse already hasn't"
Nobody does it half as good as you. Reacher, you're the best
I have been saving this one up for our holiday so I could read it in one go. Lots of moving parts to this story, and with a pretty sad side to it. Reacher never disappoints and another 5 star performance for me.
