A TUMULTUOUS THRILLER THAT SUCCEEDS AT EVERY LEVEL!

Jack Reacher, the best series hero in thrillers today, seems even bigger than usual in Lee Child’s mesmerizing The Midnight Line, in which he finds himself embroiled in a high stakes criminal conspiracy that raises the stakes considerably from his past adventures. The set-up is pure gold, with Reacher typically stepping off a bus to stretch his legs and happening upon something that sets the story off to the races.  In this case, it’s a West Point graduation ring, plenty to raise his hackles and his suspicions since what self-respecting soldier would ever part with such a symbol?  A victim, it turns out, of the kind of bad guys Reacher revels in bringing to justice.  Turns out many other victims have already been claimed, with more in the offing until our nomadic, modern-day gunfighter takes up the chase. Child’s prose (third person, in this case) has its usual edge and Reacher himself has never been sharper.  A human knife slicing through anything and everything in his way in a terrific, tumultuous thriller that succeeds at every level.
