Seems I was right. Very decent mind candy with Reacher as a sort of drifter muscly ex-military police Sherlock Holmes analytical type who find himself in the middle of a murder enquiry the moment he arrives in a small town.
He runs out of steam little towards the end but, as it was the first of the 16 successful ones he’s written so far, I could easily see myself trying another couple.
But, as an outsider to the Reacher fan world, you’re all right. Tom Cruise is no Jack Reacher.
