This review is from: Deep Down: A Jack Reacher Story (Kindle Edition)
This is perfect hold over to the next Reacher novel, A Wanted Man. I've already pre ordered it.
In this go around, Reacher has to go undercover to find out who is selling secret sniper rifle secrets to the enemy. Reacher is called in and given the mission. When it comes to Reacher getting answers, he has certain skills to get men to tell him he wants to know. A forearm smash here, broken elbow there, not a big deal to Reacher. The problem is that the primes suspect are all women in the military. Reacher was told to play it down, and cover transcripts and sit in on hearings and to get to know the women, and see who's selling the secrets. It's supposed to be a non dangerous mission. The thing is that the guilty party is smart, very smart. She has a surprise waiting for Reacher, and Reacher is ready for anything, using his special skills.
This really was a well thought out story with an interesting plot. It was interesting to see the story set back in 1986 with pay phones and fax machines. This story will hook you in to the very end. It's a perfect appetizer in waiting for A Wanted Man, which coms out in September.
If you know Reacher, then you have to have this story downloaded. You won't be sorry. I know I wasn't.
