As a special bonus, this audiobook download also includes a recording of the New York Times bestselling short story, Second Son, read by Dick Hill. At thirteen, Jack Reacher already knows how to end a fight. He knows that his brain is more important than his brawn. He knows how to get the job done. When his father is transferred to the military base on Okinawa, Jack and his older brother, Joe, prepare for school and consider how to deal with both the neighborhood bully and a missing code book that could cost their father his career.

With Reacher, #1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child has created “a series that stands in the front rank of modern thrillers” (The Washington Post).
Everything starts somewhere. . . .

For elite military cop Jack Reacher, that somewhere was Carter Crossing, Mississippi, way back in 1997. A lonely railroad track. A crime scene. A coverup.

A young woman is dead, and solid evidence points to a soldier at a nearby military base. But that soldier has powerful friends in Washington.

Reacher is ordered undercover—to find out everything he can, to control the local police, and then to vanish. Reacher is a good soldier. But when he gets to Carter Crossing, he finds layers no one saw coming, and the investigation spins out of control.

Local sheriff Elizabeth Deveraux has a thirst for justice—and an appetite for secrets. Uncertain they can trust one another, Reacher and Deveraux reluctantly join forces. Reacher works to uncover the truth, while others try to bury it forever. The conspiracy threatens to shatter his faith in his mission, and turn him into a man to be feared.

A novel of unrelenting suspense that could only come from the pen of #1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child, The Affair is the start of the Reacher saga, a thriller that takes Reacher—and his readers—right to the edge . . . and beyond.

I've either read or listened to all of the Reacher novels. To those who haven't started, get a list of the novels not in written order, but chronological order. They would make more sense if read in that fashion. Unfortunately, Child did Back to the Future with this novel which depicts Reacher at the end of his military career. It was not horrible, but I found other Reacher novels more compelling and believable. Worth the price of admission, but no Pulitzer Prizes on this one.

I have read almost all of the Jack Reacher novels now and this one was nice in its own way. I think each book has been different from each other and of course very much the same in all of the aspects we have grown to love about Reacher. If you like Reacher you will love this book. (what's not to like about Reacher )
