Jack Reacher. Hero. Loner. Soldier. Soldier’s son. An elite military cop, he was one of the army’s brightest stars. But in every cop’s life there is a turning point. One case. One messy, tangled case that can shatter a career. Turn a lawman into a renegade. And make him question words like honor, valor, and duty. For Jack Reacher, this is that case.

New Year’s Day, 1990. The Berlin Wall is coming down. The world is changing. And in a North Carolina “hot-sheets” motel, a two-star general is found dead. His briefcase is missing. Nobody knows what was in it. Within minutes Jack Reacher has his orders: Control the situation. But this situation can’t be controlled. Within hours the general’s wife is murdered hundreds of miles away. Then the dominoes really start to fall.

Two Special Forces soldiers—the toughest of the tough—are taken down, one at a time. Top military commanders are moved from place to place in a bizarre game of chess. And somewhere inside the vast worldwide fortress that is the U.S. Army, Jack Reacher—an ordinarily untouchable investigator for the 110th Special Unit—is being set up as a fall guy with the worst enemies a man can have.

But Reacher won’t quit. He’s fighting a new kind of war. And he’s taking a young female lieutenant with him on a deadly hunt that leads them from the ragged edges of a rural army post to the winding streets of Paris to a confrontation with an enemy he didn’t know he had. With his French-born mother dying—and divulging to her son one last, stunning secret—Reacher is forced to question everything he once believed…about his family, his career, his loyalties—and himself. Because this soldier’s son is on his way into the darkness, where he finds a tangled drama of desperate desires and violent death—and a conspiracy more chilling, ingenious, and treacherous than anyone could have guessed.

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Lee Child’s Make Me.

Good First Read I checked out Lee Childs site and found that The Enemy was a prequel to his first book and decided that I would start with the prequels. I enjoyed the read. I find that often times the prequels, since they are actually written after the first books that they are better founded, better written. The writer develops the character over time and I was not proven wrong. It was well written. The characters were well developed. The conversations flowed and the ideas followed a logical sequence. There…

Wow I almost never spend $9.99 for an ebook! I almost never read past a few pages or chapters of the ones i do buy…much less read to the end as fast as i can . I have a very hard time finding authors who write so (seemingly) effortlessly that I relish every part of the book without knowing why.I am so glad I found this author. Generally I don’t read mysteries because these days they can be gory, but this book is just right in every way. Murders along the way, but not gory. A likable,…

Lee Child’s Reacher At His Finest This is my second time through the Jack Reacher series; The Enemy is without question his finest hour. Reacher’s finest hour, and Lee Child’s masterpiece.Everything we love about Reacher is here: his stoicism, his realism, his (almost) complete control of the world around him, with some violence and sex and Wild West justice thrown in to a terrific whodunnit.But in The Enemy, Reacher is vulnerable. We see his weakness, his loss, and somewhere deep down, his loneliness. This book is…
