Welcome to the world of the HOT NEW RELEASES! Writing a HOT NEW RELEASES book review is tough, but for a Lee Child novel (“The Affair: A Reacher Novel” the hottest new release this year), there is no difficult in stating that this book review is just my way of saying “well done” to the master of mystery!
The Affair: A Reacher Novel book review – The book lives up to its name!
In The Affair, we find that Reacher is still an MP. Although the backdrop is similar to his previous campaigns; a small run down town; Reacher is sent in to assist the beautiful local Sheriff to find and catch a killer. Of course, the true reason is to cover up a potential scandal for the military. Keeping with the series, the action is fast paced with strong characters and a rhythm that may put off a new reader; but I suggest you keep at it and soon, you too will become a Reacher fan! Although the reasons given for his departure from the army may not be acceptable to certain fans, this book answers tons of questions regarding his past and his character.
The Affair takes back to the beginning!
In The Affair: A Reacher Novel, Lee Child lives up to his reputation of being the master of thriller. We are taken on a flash back, where in a lot of Reacher’s now well known habits such as “no suitcase; will travel”, come in the know. Taking a detour from the previous two Reacher novels, The Affair: A Reacher Novel shows us how Reacher became what he is today in our minds and we see the face of his arch-nemesis the military bureaucracy. The book wonderfully fills in the necessary gaps about our understanding of Reacher, and showcases the causes of his present, i.e. being a drifter.
The Affair has a perfect combination of Violence and Sex
Well, there is no Reacher book without its fair share of violence and sex. Here, the violence has increased dramatically while the sex scenes may be a little over the top. However, Lee Child has found the perfect blend according to me and with the pace the book runs at, it just adds to the excitement! This book is a “one sit” read. Once you pick it up, it will be virtually impossible to put it down!
The Affair: A Reacher Novel, is a must read, it’s a thriller from the master Lee Child!
