Fiction. Mystery. Suspense. Thriller. HTML:In this short story, #1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child goes back to 1989, when Jack Reacher is an MP assigned to solve the cold-blooded murder of a young officer??whose killer may be closer to Reacher than he suspects.
/>
The telex is brief and to the point: One active-duty personnel found shot to death ten miles north of Fort Smith. Circumstances unknown. Found in a silver Porsche along an isolated forest road in Georgia, the victim was shot twice in the chest and once in the head. A professional hit. Clean. The crime scene suggests an ambush. Military police officer Jack Reacher is given the case. He calls his older brother, Colonel Joe Reacher, at the Pentagon for intel and taps Sergeant Frances Neagley to help him answer the big question: Who would kill a brilliant officer on the fast-track to greatness? For Jack Reacher, the answer hits home.

Good quick read, short, but fun if you enjoy the Reacher story style. ( )

Wish this one was full length. Very good with Joe Reacher and love Dick Hill's voice as Reacher. ( )

Whilst in writing order Small Wars comes in after the 19th novel, Personal, by chronology it actually takes place before the first novel of the series, and after the short story Deep Down.

It takes place in 1989, in Georgia. It's a short investigation lead by Reacher into an execution on a lonely country road. Whilst we the reader are aware from the get go of who the shooter is, the plot goes through the machinations of investigation for Reacher to come up with the shooter and his reasoning by the close of the novel.

It's a reasonable addition to the series, although I thought it presented Joe Reacher in a manner contradictory to Killing Floor which seemed to imply he wasn't too good with hands on investigation where as here he's out getting his hands dirty handling himself in a seemingly capable manner. ( )
