Publisher's Summary

Is Jack Reacher a serial killer?

A serial killer returns after years of inactivity in this gripping new thriller. The green-paint-bathtub killer had Reacher running blind back in the day. The New York FBI team says Reacher was the serial killer then and is still the serial killer. But FBI agents Kim Otto and Carlos Gaspar believe a copycat may be on the loose....

Five powerful players are determined to win at all costs. The sixth only wants to stay alive. Not all will win. None plan to fail. But when Reacher is judge, jury, and executioner, Otto knows collateral damage is inevitable.

Authorized and recommended by the creator of the Jack Reacher thrillers, including The Midnight Line and Past Tense, Lee Child gives Diane Capri two thumbs up!

The Hunt for Jack Reacher series enthralls fans of John Grisham, Lee Child, Michael Connelly, Lisa Gardner, and more.

Close, but not quite believable

First, I'm a HUGE fan of the Reacher series by Lee Child. That being said, you don't have to be a fan of the Reacher series to like Diane Capri's Hunt for Jack Reacher stories. In fact, it may be a benefit for you not to have read the Reacher stories. The latest story is a close, but not quite believable alternate ending to an existing Reacher mystery. Child's story revolves around a series of murders of Army women who, at one point in their career, crossed paths with Reacher. In the Lee Child story, those mysteries were solved by Reacher. Child's story was tied up nicely with a believable bow. Here, Capri attempts to untie that bow and then retie it for us. Having listened to all of Capri's previous "Hunt" stories and her portrayal of Reacher, it still doesn't come together in a nice little bow. In this "Hunt" story, Capri kicks off with a copycat murder done with green paint. Could Reacher be the murderer? And if it wasn't Reacher, can some mysterious, powerful FBI Agent Cooper pin it on him anyway? What doesn't work are phone calls and text messages reacher makes to lowly FBI Special Agent Otto. The only items Reacher carries with him is a foldable toothbrush, an ATM card and an ID. No cell phone. How is he texting and calling Otto leaving clues and warnings? That's too advanced for Reacher. And if Reacher suddenly starts carrying a phone, why can't that all powerful gov't agent track Reacher? Speaking of FBI agents, why can't the powerful Cooper open classified Army files? That was never addressed in the story. If it had been it would have brought this story to a close a lot sooner. This story gets 3 stars because it's OK, but Capri has written more believable stuff in this "Hunt" series.

Started out good....

I was hoping for more here but it was ok. It started strong but ended up kind of just okay as far as Reacher books go. I prefer more action I guess.
