    "Reacher settling in: drift, solve crime, repeat"

    Tripwire is Lee Child's 3rd Jack Reacher adventure. Jack Reacher is the prototypical man without a home. connections, or long term goals. He is also gifted with innate deductive reasoning and excellent investigator skills from the military. Finally, he possesses his own sense of right and wrong as well as justice. This time out, Reacher is sought out by a private detective who shortly thereafter ends up dead. In delving into the cause for the interest in him, he stumbles onto a criminal conspiracy, reunites with an unrequited flame, solves a Vietnam era mystery for the military and soothes the despair of a dying elderly couple. Pretty much all in a day's work for Jack.

    The classic Reacher analytical deductions are in full display with plenty of opportunities. At the same time, Child weaves a more complex web of connections with multiple intersecting plotlines that give the tale a more relaxed pace that takes its time to unfold. The one constant in force is the slight mental instability in the main villain. This tale includes quite a bit of introspection on Jack's part that is likely to direct Reacher to a path that ensures the franchise remains on theme for the foreseeable future.

    The narration is superb with an excellent range of voices, solid pacing and delivery.

    "out of first 3 this ranks 2nd"

    I liked the book but didn't like that Jack Reacher came off as dumfounded as he was. Easy to pick out Allen wasn't Hobie from the time Reacher started investigating.

    "Another great Reacher story!"

    I have become a Reacher addict. No other way to describe it. As soon as I finish one book, I immediately start the next. Trip Wire has only increased the desire for me next fix. Will Jack as stop wandering? Will he actually have a woman in his life that lasts more than one novel? Guess I better start on Running Blind to find out.

    "To right a forgotten wrong."

    Liked the history behind the story. Very vivid descriptions of the scenes and actions. Teacher is a complex character. I would recommend to readers that like detective, mysteries and action fiction.

    "Right ??"

    This narrator drives me crazy. Every declarative statement he punctuates with "right ?" The character doesn't seem to matter , "right ?" This seems to occur in every conversation. This has to be an ad lib, no way this author would use "right ?" over 100 times.
