Lee Child’s Past Tense is the latest in the Jack Reacher series. I have read and enjoyed all of the Reacher books, but this is the best one in years.
Sure, it had some what seem to me are unlikely fight scenes, especially since Reacher is nearly 60, but the plot was excellent. The leading villain is especially awful. That being said, it’s the information we learn about Reacher’s family that made this book so interesting to me. I read the whole book in a day.
If you like the Reacher series, you will love this book. If you haven’t read the Reacher series, I wouldn’t start with Past Tense. Earlier reads will help you get a good feel for the family dynamic that shows itself here.
