Obvious. Readers looking for a light and quick reading experience will find reliable entertainment from Lee Child’s 14th Jack Reacher novel titled, 61 Hours. Reacher lands in a small South Dakota town following a bus accident, and finds himself immersed in the activities of a Mexican drug cartel at an abandoned military facility near town. A reward for long-time readers of this series comes in the form of greater understanding of Reacher’s past, and how that formed the person he is today. The depth of this character also expands in this installment when Reacher shows poor judgment, which had seemed to be a rare event in the earlier novels. While the plot moved along briskly, I found the mystery quite obvious, but that didn’t necessarily distract from my reading pleasure.
Rating: Three-star (Recommended)
