The Affair Lee Child Reacher’s back story

We get Reacher’s back story as a military policeman in this one, telling of how he became the man he is.
His affair develops with a small-town sheriff while they are trying to solve a murder which is being blamed on the locally-based soldiers; a tricky assignment for Reacher as the soldiers are engaged in top-secret work.
This is another of the fast-paced Jack Reacher books that has me looking forward to reading the new one each year. Of course, Lee Child sticks to the formula. That’s why we read them. They’re comfortable, in a way, highly entertaining, so well-written that you forget you’re reading and packed with action.
