New Year's Day, 1990. The Berlin Wall is coming down and the Cold War is ending. Jack Reacher is the duty Military Police officer on a base in North Carolina when a soldier's body is discovered in a sleazy motel. Reacher tells the local cop to handle it - it sounds like the guy just had a heart attack.
But the dead man turns out to have been a general on a top-secret mission. And when Reacher goes to the general's house to break the news, he finds a corpse: the General's wife.
`Lee Child writes a good story, twisting it into labyrinthine folds and keeping his readers guessing right to the end. He has obviously done his research' - IRISH TIMES
'Lee Child fans will love this prequel to the bestselling Jack Reacher novels. At last Child shares the events that shaped the maverick hero of his last six novels into an ass-kicking, irreverent good guy. If you're one of the few people who haven't sampled the sublime thrill of a Child novel, this blast from the past is the best place to start' - SCOTTISH DAILY RECORD
`Dithering is not a factor in Reacher's exploits or in Mr Child's lean, dynamic storytelling. Ever.' - NEW YORK TIMES
'One of the best writers in this genre. And nobody does it better' - The Sunday Telegraph
'The thing about Lee Child's books is that you can't put the damn things down. There's something about his writing that's addictive. The Enemy is no exception. Superb.' - INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY

 It's Jack Reacher - the early years. An excellent book!

For fans of Jack Reacher this takes us back to his army days, and is a hugely enjoyable thriller.

The story centres on a 29-year-old Reacher's determination to solve a case (or cases) which his superiors would rather just disappeared, and it's interesting to see the character within the confines of his regimented life.

The usual short burts of violence intercut the detective story arc, and I found this to be one of the most exciting of the Reacher novels.

A fabulous read, and very highly recommeneded to fans of detective thrillers.
