Make Me: opening line: Moving a guy as big as Keever wasn’t easy.
Jack Reacher is on the move, this time by train. He decides to get off at Mother’s Rest for no real reason, other than to see how it got it’s name. The first person he meets is Michelle Chang, and she is looking for Keever. Will Reacher stay and help her? And if he does, will it lead to something more than a search for a friend?
The search for Keever leads them to discover all sorts of evil that exists in the dark web. They engage the help of people more in tune with how the dark web works, but even they cannot imagine the truth behind Mother’s Rest. As with all the Jack Reacher books, you can read them without having read any of the others. But to understand the dynamics of Reacher, and the way Child writes, I would suggest you start at the beginning. This book did not disappoint at all, and story, as grim as it is, is quite believable.
Finally, Jack seems to have met someone worth more than a ‘one book’ relationship. There is a promise of something more between them, which means I am waiting in anticipation for what is next to come from Lee Child.
