Russians. For the twenty-fifth installment in his Jack Reacher series, author Lee Child has teamed up with his brother, Andrew, a fellow writer, for a jointly written novel titled, The Sentinel. The roaming Reacher takes a pause in his nomadic life when something interesting catches his attention. Soon after arriving in a town near Pleasantville, Tennessee, Reacher observes Rusty Rutherford, an IT manager, stumble into an ambush. After Reacher intervened with his skills and saved Rusty, his interest is piqued. Before long, he’s sticking around running across Russian spies and a ransomware attack with a secret objective. I found the slower pacing of this installment to be different from the earlier novels, but the plot and entertainment value remained satisfying for this reader. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase The Sentinel from amazon.com.
