The Affair Lee Child Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars


Everything starts somewhere. For elite military cop Jack Reacher, that somewhere was Carter Crossing, Mississippi, way back in 1997.
A lonely railroad track. A crime scene. A cover-up. A young woman is dead, and solid evidence points to a soldier at a nearby military base. But that soldier has powerful friends in Washington.
Reacher is ordered undercover to find out everything he can and then to vanish. But when he gets to Carter Crossing, Reacher meets local sheriff Elizabeth Deveraux, who has a thirst for justice and an appetite for secrets. Uncertain they can trust each other, they reluctantly join forces. Finding unexpected layers to the case, Reacher works to uncover the truth, while others try to bury it forever. The conspiracy threatens to shatter his faith in his mission—and turn him into a man to be feared.

Don’t miss Lee Child’s short story “Second Son” and a sneak peek of his new novel, A Wanted Man, in the back of the book.

  • The Affair or a Planned Meeting

    By Lakewaco
    Interesting and intriguing story, but a little strung out story. Parts can be a fast read, other parts, you’ll want try read a little slower to catch all the nuisances. All in all, good read.

  • Another great one

    By The Mother Ship
    This one is a fast read, and although I figured this one out, which surprised me since I am always left guessing. Still great and keep up the great work Lee.

    I must have read about 10 Reacher novels now and this was one of the better ones (and they're all good). Great read.
