The Visitor by Lee Child


Format: Paperback

Sergeant Amy Callan and Lieutenant Caroline Cooke have a lit in common.

Both were army high-fliers. Both were acquainted with Jack Reacher. Both were forced to resign from the service.

Now they’re both dead.

Found in their own homes, naked, in a bath full of paint. Apparent victims of an army man. A loner, a smart guy with a score to settle, a ruthless vigilante.

A man just like Jack Reacher.


This Reacher book was different from the other three that I have read so far. This book reminded me a lot of the Jo Nesbø crime books and a little of the Millennium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson.

The book still has the military aspect that Jack Reacher is all about but it was presented in a different way than it usually is.

As far as the story goes it was still a brilliant storyline. Lee presented a massive twist in the story in who actually murdered the women and the actual book leads you away from who it really was.

But it was amazing, to me, how Reacher still managed to figure out who the killer was and how they had been doing the killings. It shows how the character Child’s has created has a very clever mind that will think the impossible.

It was a great book and I am going to continue working my way through the rest of the Reacher books.
