Jack Reacher is a prototypical hero. He is big and strong and smart and he drifts around solving unsolvable problems. He doesn't need anything besides his folding toothbrush and a little folding money. (Confronted with the reality of our post-9/11 world, Reacher actually started carrying a passport and an ATM card in later books -- a stumbling block for loyal readers.) He can calculate the trajectory of a bullet. He can kill a man with his thumb. He's cool.
I have read all but the latest of Lee Child's Jack Reacher books.
The books in publication order are:
The Hard Way
Bad Luck and Trouble
Nothing to Lose
Worth Dying For (reviewed here)
