Personal by Lee Child review – suspense thrills with Jack Reacher | Books | The Guardian
He owns nothing except a pocket toothbrush. He rights wrongs. He is laconically funny. Irresistible to women. He is Sir Lancelot, Lee Child has said. He is also Clint Eastwood , avenging drifter. He is also a bit Joe Pike. Like our man. Every ex-military hero was in the coolest branch of the armed forces.
What Lee Child Has Learned from Writing the Jack Reacher Books
What is the coolest branch of the armed forces? Very cool. Also cool.
And useful, if you want to write mystery-action hybrids. Military police means two things.

One, he's a skilled investigator. Two, he could beat up everyone else in the army. This time it's Personal. Because Reacher put him away years ago. For killing a fellow soldier in a bar fight. This guy is Kott. Reacher should know. The French president will be vulnerable again soon. At the G8 meeting. In east London.
So the army calls Reacher. And Reacher teams up with the CIA. In the personable shape of a young woman. They go to Paris and meet a Russian intelligence guy. They go to London and meet a Welsh guy called Bennett.

MI6 or SAS. Probably both. There's a Serbian gang in Acton. A cockney gang in Barking. Not your usual tourist-thriller itinerary. As usual the novel has a refrain. This time it's that in a fight, no one knows what's going to happen. You know who that is. It is also Child. He is so good. He makes "literary" writing seem orotund. His sawn-off sentences pile up. He generates relentless momentum. Educational interludes. Sardonic riffs on consumerism. Always rhythmically placed in the ebb and flow of information. It approaches the Hitchcockian. Or carefully creeping up to a house over many pages.
Turns out to be empty. No matter. It makes the confrontation more dramatic. When it comes. Between the bad guys. And Jack Reacher.
