The Affair By Lee Child
Back cover …….
March 1997. A woman has her throat cut behind a bar in Mississippi. Just down the road is a big army base. Is the murderer a local guy – or is he a soldier?
Jack Reacher, still a major in the military police, is sent in undercover. The county sheriff is a former U.S. Marine – and a stunningly beautiful woman.
Her investigation is going nowhere. Is the Pentagon stonewalling her? Or doesn’t she really want to find the killer?
Set just six months before the opening of Killing Floor, The Affair marks a turning point in Reacher’s career. If he does what the army wants, will he be able to live with himself? And if he doesn’t, will the army be able to live with him?
My review …..
Book 16 in a 22 book series. It’s the jack reacher series. They don’t need to be read in order.
Jack is an officer in the military police. And he’s asked to go undercover to find out if the murder of a woman is military or civilian.
He gets no luck with the local police, and the local sheriff is no help. So jack is wondering if she knows more than she’s letting on.
There is a little chemistry between the sheriff and Jack and it’s an interesting read.
There is enough action to keep me reading,
I like this series, and I’ve read a couple.
The author has this genre down really well.
So if you like reading an action packed adventure story, then I’ll highly recommend it.
