Night School: A Jack Reacher Novel
The year is 1996, and Jack Reacher has yet to be discharged from the Army. After receiving a medal in a subdued ceremony, he and three other top operatives are whisked away to a night school, presumably to spearhead a rather boring initiative. Except that’s only the cover so the three operatives are free to leave the country unnoticed and solve a case involving a sleeper cell, a hundred million dollars, and a villain known only as The American. In typical Reacher fashion, he navigates the murky underworld of espionage, where people are never what they seem and violence is sometimes the best answer.
Night School, like all the books in the Reacher series, captures the reader’s attention and never lets go. Addictive and thrilling, it is an intense joy, following the heroic Reacher as he delves in and out of danger with finesse. The mystery of The American and the hundred-million-dollar price tag weighs heavily until the satisfying ending. While it is not the best in the series, it is still an engaging page-turner that fans of the series will eagerly devour. New readers are welcome as the previous books are not required to understand and enjoy the explosive splendor of Jack Reacher.
