The Enemy

The Enemy

(Jack Reacher 8)

Summary

'There's only one Jack Reacher. Accept no substitutes' Mick Herron

'The thing about Lee Child's books is that you can't put the damn things down. . .there's something about his writing that's addictive. The Enemy is no exception. . .Superb.' Independent on Sunday
_____________

North Carolina. New Year's Day, 1990. A soldier is found dead in a sleazy motel bed.

Jack Reacher is the officer on duty. The soldier turns out to be a two-star general.

The situation is bad enough, then Reacher finds the body of the general's wife.

This stomach-churning thriller turns back the clock to a younger Reacher, in dogtags. A Reacher who still believes in the service. A Reacher who imposes army discipline. Even if only in his own pragmatic way...

_________

Although the Jack Reacher novels can be read in any order, The Enemy is 8th in the series.

And be sure not to miss Reacher's newest adventure, no.26, Better off Dead! ***OUT NOW***
