Theres only one Jack Reacher. Accept no substitutes Mick Herron The thing about Lee Childs books is that you cant put the damn things down. . .theres something about his writing thats addictive. The Enemy is no exception. . .Superb. Independent on Sunday _____________ North Carolina. New Years 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 generals 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.
