    "Young Reacher"

    Story wasn't up to the usual standard, even considering the length, but the narrator was a believable young Reacher

    "action packed start to finish"

    young reacher, new York gangsters, the son of Sam , a love interest not tedious unnecessary & transparent such as with most of the books in the series & an unexpected twist to finish ... all in a 2hr short! good work
