Running Blind Lee Child Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
Jack Reacher races to solve the perfect crime in the fourth novel in Lee Child’s New York Times bestselling series.
Across the country, women are being murdered, victims of a disciplined and clever killer who leaves no trace evidence, no fatal wounds, no signs of struggle, and no clues to an apparent motive. They are, truly, perfect crimes. In fact, there’s only one thing that links the victims. Each one of the women knew Jack Reacher—and it’s got him running blind.

User reviews about this book
I had read some of the books in this series as stand alone stories, but I decided to start at the beginning with the 1st in the series and read the entire series in order. If you haven’t already been reading the series in order, I strongly recommend it. Lee Child has a way of bringing his characters to life, but with each new book, he reveals more and more of Jack’s character, warts and all. I intend to continue reading each and every book in this series. Thank you Lee Child. For avid readers such as I, your characters are true portrayals of the human race
Pretty obvious outcome from early in the book. Only reason it was a page turner was to get done with it.... not a whole lot of action; not a believable plot.
3/5 stars. Started strong, petered out :-(
Jack Reacher is Awesome
So far I’ve read 4 of the Jack Reacher series. Loved them all and look forward to reading them all. Reacher has a unique outlook on life...no anchors.
This was my first read by Lee Child. I am not impressed. It was somewhat refreshing to see a different style of writing. Unlike the usual, cliché monster male serial killer, it was a female this time. But it was way too unrealistic. The way he laid the Plot just did not add up. And hypnotism, seriously? Is that the best you could come up with? Should’ve put it under fantasy fiction
A DEEPENING JACK REACHER MYSTERY: #4
“Running Blind”-an enjoyable, complex Jack Reacher mystery (#4 in the series and sometimes entitled “The Visitor") by Lee Child. Roaming ex-MP Reacher is still anchored at Garrison, NY & in love with Jodie. But standing up for someone creates thorny situations for him and others, full of tight timelines and much danger, as puzzling situations get deeper and Reacher is a key player. Five ENGAGING Stars.

Typical Lee Childs thriller. Character development was spot on and the story line moved me both emotionally and anxious.
I rate this early Reacher novel four stars out of five.
Like other authors, I try to read their works from the beginning so I have much catching up to do with Lee Child. That being said, I found this to be much better written than his first two books. The twist at the end was far less obvious and the main character had more depth. The plot was far more engaging and the whodunit part was well disguised. Soon I will start on the next book in the series expecting an even bigger improvement and hope not to be disappointed.
This tale is vintage Jack Reacher. Lee Child has created a most interesting character in Reacher. This tale delves into how Reacher's mind solves riddles. The book moves swiftly and with the tart yet delightful dialogue that keeps the reader turning the pages. The finale is unexpected and well thought out.
A great reading full of suspense.
