Past Tense, I feel a certain loss, knowing it will be about another year before the next installment is released. Fans of the series will find lots to enjoy in the latest 400 pages of the life of a finely developed complex character. New readers can start here or anywhere in the series and find a great heroic character: a person who lives by a code of conduct and morality and acts in ways consistent with that code. In this novel, Reacher takes a detour on the way from New England to San Diego to visit the town where his father was born. By the end of the novel, Reacher learns things about his father, Stan, and sees the place where his father was raised. Along this journey toward his roots, there’s lots of malfeasance that Reacher stumbles across and addresses with all his skills and focus. Fans of action thrillers will love this novel and this series. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Past Tense from amazon.com.
