Jack Reacher 04

When we left Reacher at the end of the previous novel, he had a house and a girlfriend and his nomadic days seemed to be behind him. We find him in the same spot here - except as expected, he is not really adapting well to his new life. The girlfriend is not a problem, the "stay in one place and have a home" is.

So when he sees a small business owner being hassled for protection, he decides to help - handing FBI enough ammunition to blackmail him into helping them (and even that would not have been enough if they had not gone after Jodie as well). And why do they need him? Because someone is killing women - all of them ex-military, all of them connected to his past as an MP. He was really a suspect for awhile - until someone died while he was talking to the police and that became an impossibility.

Child adds a second narrator - the killer's - which is slowly revealed to be a psychopath. Between that and the third person narrative the story start twisting and turning and throwing all kinds of red herrings. Reacher does not take the blackmail kindly, even if he complies, and adds his own agenda into the whole story.

By the time the solution comes it almost feels like the last possible option. And yet, it is not - working back from the solution you can see the hints and foreshadowing, the assumptions which go unchecked for a very long time - and the string of women that could have been still alive if they had been. The other story - the protection rackets also gets its closure - its development is weaved into the bigger one. And the personal story of Reacher gets to a new place - Jodie is off to London, he is preparing to sell the house - and the play at domestication is done.

Another solid story from an author who knows his craft. It works as a standalone but the backstory adds a richness into the characters.

PS: This novel ended up with two titles - the original one for UK (The Visitor), the other for USA (Running Blind). Both fit in different ways although I prefer the UK one. Why the US market needed a new title is almost cute - apparently it was seen by Putnam (the original US publisher) as sounding too much like a science-fiction novel so they had to change it. ( )

Reacher books are satisfying for what they are, but this one had way too much profanity in it. ( )
