Mark Twain wrote: There is no character, howsoever good and fine, but it can be destroyed by ridicule, howsoever poor and witless. Observe the ass, for instance: his character is about perfect, he is the choicest spirit among all the humbler animals, yet see what ridicule has brought him to. Instead of feeling complimented when we are called an ass, we are left in doubt.
#21.5 in Jack Reacher
Average Rating: 5.0
In this original novella featuring Jack Reacher after his time in the army, Reacher finds himself in a hollowed-out town in Maine. He witnesses a random bag-snatching but sees much more than a simple crime.
This is a well-plotted little tale with some twisty surprises at the end. And marvel of marvels, there's no gratuitous sex. Dick Hill delivers his customary "Reacher" performance. Excellent!
