This is the eighth book of Lee Child's Jack Reacher series. It takes the reader back to the start of the last decade in the twentieth century. The Berlin Wall is coming down and the military is facing changes. It is New Year's Eve and Major Reacher has just been transferred from Panama to Fort Bird, North Carolina, where he is working the night shift to give his staff the holiday. He takes the call about a two-star general found dead in a nearby hotel room. This quickly evolves into a case, however, that threatens his then promising military career.
As I have probably mentioned many times, I am a Jack Reacher fan. I read this book not too long after watching the recent Tom Cruise movie, "Jack Reacher." This book fills in some of his past that is alluded to in other installments of this series. This is not my favorite of the Reacher volumes that I have thus far consumed, but I enjoyed it. If you have similar interest, I would suggest that you give it a try.
