Adult Murder Mystery
Goodreads rating: 4.02
My rating: 4
Setting: Contemporary Margrave, GA
First line/s: "I was arrested at Eno's Diner. At twelve o'clock. I was eating eggs and drinking coffee. A late breakfast, not lunch. I was wet and tired after a long walk in heavy rain. All the way from the highway to the edge of town."
My comments: I'm skipping around reading this series, and this is the first of them chronologically. It gave a teeny, tiny more insight into protagonist Jack Reacher and why he is living life in his chosen, off-beat way. The mystery was great, fascinating, kept you guessing, and entirely improbable.....which was totally okay with me! This is the perfect book for a reluctant reader from young adult onward. It's hard to put down.
Goodreads synopsis: Ex-military policeman Jack Reacher is a drifter. He's just passing through Margrave, Georgia, and in less than an hour, he's arrested for murder. Not much of a welcome. All Jack knows is that he didn't kill anybody. At least not here. Not lately. But he doesn't stand a chance of convincing anyone. not in Margrave, Georgia. Not a chance in hell.
