The Visitor (4th of 18 Reacher Novels)

The Visitor (4th of 18 Reacher Novels) by Lee Child

Goodreads Synopsis:

Sergeant Amy Callan and Lieutenant Caroline Cook have a lot in common. High-flying army career women, both are victims of sexual harassment from their superiors; both are force to resign from the service.

And now they’re both dead.

Their unmarked bodies are discovered in their homes, naked, in baths filled with army-issue camouflage paint. Expert FBI psychological profilers start to hunt for a serial murderer, a smart guy with a score to settle, a loner, an army man, a ruthless vigilante known to them both.

Jack Reacher, a former US military cop, is a smart guy, a loner and a drifter, as tough as they come. He knew both victims. For Agent-in-Charge Nelson Blake and his team, he’s the perfect match. They’re sure only Reacher has the answers to their burning questions: how did these women die? And why?

My Thoughts:

This book picks up right where Tripwire finishes. I was sucked in from the first page and didn’t want to put it down. We get the continuation and end of the Jodie and Reacher’s love story. I really enjoyed having Jodie in last two books, her character made Reacher’s seem more real, more desirable, more human and less superman. But I’d advise you to read Tripwire first or the whole Jodie thing won’t mean as much to you.

I’ve said it before but I love how Mr Child and his Jack Reacher always keep you guessing. You think Reacher’s a goner but he always manages to get himself out. This book has all the fast paced page turning action and thrilling mystery you’d expect from a Reacher novel, but the twist, the who done it, I won’t say anymore or give anything away, but it’s my favourite yet!

Five out of Five stars for another enthralling Reacher investigation.
