Ex-military policeman Jack Reacher is a drifter. He’s just passing through Margrave, Georgia, and in less than an hour, he’s arrested for murder. Not much of a welcome. All Reacher knows is that he didn’t kill anybody. At least not here. Not lately. But he doesn’t stand a chance of convincing anyone. Not in Margrave, Georgia. Not a chance in hell.

If you realize you're in for a macho action book, then you'll be pleasantly surprised that there's some nuance. (Of course, some not also.) These are a step above a pulp novel, and serve the same purpose.

I did realize what I like about these books though: Reacher comes up against a conspiracy, and Child is able to take us through the mystery without it getting too confusing with the complexity. (This is only the second one I've read though.)
