The ring is tiny, for a woman, and it has her initials engraved on the inside. Reacher wonders what unlucky circumstance made her give up something she earned over four hard years. He decides to find out. And find the woman. And return her ring. Why not?So begins a harrowing journey that takes Reacher through the upper Midwest, from a lowlife bar on the sad side of small town to a dirt-blown crossroads in the middle of nowhere, encountering bikers, cops, crooks, muscle, and a missing persons PI who wears a suit and a tie in the Wyoming wilderness.The deeper Reacher digs, and the more he learns, the more dangerous the terrain becomes. Turns out the ring was just a small link in a far darker chain. Powerful forces are guarding a vast criminal enterprise. Some lines should never be crossed. But then, neither should Reacher....

The Midnight Line (Jack Reacher #22) Reviews
After my last Jack Reacher experience I said that was it. I however received this as a gift over the holiday season and gave it a shot. Its definitely an improvement from his last few attempts however I still feel as if Jack Reacher suffers from the same issues. A drifter who wants to be left alone would just be that, he wouldnt be curious about a ring in a pawn shop. I also love character development but I feel like his character has stalled and really cant do much more with him. Alot better th ...more
Just in time for Veteran's Day, another Jack Reacher book has been released, which examines what happens to wounded servicemen and women when they come home.
After Michelle Chang leaves Reacher, he climbs on yet another bus and heads north. At a rest break, he spots a West Point ring in a pawn shop and is moved to find out more about the owner. Reacher runs into resistance right away but learns enough to begin following a trail that leads him to South Dakota, then Wyoming, where he teams up with ...more
The year is 1997, Heathrow terminal 4, and by some luck I bought, Killing Floor, the riveting and action-packed start to the JR series and now, 20 years and 22 books on with the latest being The Midnight Line, I mourn the loss of the real and enigmatic JR....more
In all honesty, I think I've outgrown this character or perhaps the central premise of a nomad-like hero who lives free from any and all encumbrance seems implausible in this digital era amid a growing security and terrorism war.
The Midnight L
I have been saving this one up for our holiday so I could read it in one go. Lots of moving parts to this story, and with a pretty sad side to it. Reacher never disappoints and another 5 star performance for me.
After more than 20 books Jack Reacher still drifts into a new town where he is caught up in a world of intrigue, villains & fist fights.
Yes, it's the formula as before.....but I still love it! However, there are times when the novel moves away from the expected & Lee Child creates some genuine moments of sadness and humanity.
The tagline on the cover of the book says "A righteous avenger for our troubled times-we all need Jack Reacher." I, for one, cannot argue with that.
I’d taken a brief sojourn from the Reacher books. For a while they’d felt samey and contrived. The big man was also starting to feel way too predictable with his habits, his and his incessant coffee drinking and the like. And not only that, the stories were now clearly formulaic and, frankly, dull. But then a friend lent me this book and I was glad to have it, pleased to be meeting up with the modern day knight errant again.
This time he’s in Wyoming, a state bigger than the United Kingdom but wi ...more
Audiobook - 11:17 Hours - 3.5 out of 5.0 stars
(I am not a particularly high marker, so 3.0 is a good mark for me.)
Narrator: Jeff Harding - the perfect replacement for Dick Hill.
I am pleased to say that in "The Midnight Line", Reacher #22, Lee Child appears to have returned to the mode of writing (I refuse to use 'formula') that made the character of Jack Reacher such a success. I've read/listened to them all, many of them more than once, some more than twice and this book is as good as any of t ...more
As a long time Reacher Creature, I went into this book blind. My only expectation was that Reacher would get himself into a situation, and he did. This is a good one. Very enjoyable.
