The latest Jack Reacher adventure takes the ex-military investigator on a hunt for the killer of ex-military women. Though Reacher and the FBI profilers who brought him the case are clueless, we are privy to some of the killer's thoughts. The latter's identity is obscured by a production process called "light reverb," which renders the voice ageless, sexless, and also eerie. Hints abound in the text, but Dick Hill glides over them while keeping us engaged in the story. He modulates his voice for each character; not surprisingly he succeeds better with the men. The female agent who works with and who (naturally) falls for Reacher sounds a bit sweet for someone in her job. This is the fourth Reacher novel; all are available from Brilliance.
