This is the first in the popular Jack Reacher series. Jack is a drifter who is trained to handle any bad guy or situation. He’s the kind of guy you want on your side in a corrupt town. When he gets off a bus and walks into the town of Margrave, Georgia things get complicated and violent. Not knowing who is clean or who is dirty can be a problem. Jack’s mind works fast and his military training is not wasted. Although there was a lot of violence I enjoyed reading this book and finding out how he gets out of a tough situation.
