Book review – The Midnight Line by Lee Child

My partner has red zillion of thrillers so I asked him to review The Midnight Line and he kindly obliged. Here is his review:

The Midnight Line is the 22nd novel by Lee Child featuring his character Jack Reacher. For those who haven’t read any of the thrillers, Jack Reacher is a larger than life wanderer in the USA who is an ex-military policeman. He is of no fixed abode as he prefers the freedom of the road, and is constantly fighting injustice.

The previous Jack Reacher book (Night School) was set in his earlier life when he was a major in the U.S. military police, and was not nearly so successful. This latest novel returns to the usual formula of the Jack Reacher books with the hero fighting drug pushers while at the same time returning a West Point ring to a damaged ex-army female officer. Always fighting for justice, Jack Reacher will try to make things right.

Each novel is self-contained, so if you haven’t read any of the previous 21 Jack Reacher novels, there is no need to start at the beginning. I enjoyed this book, and if you like an easy-read thriller you should too.”
