Women are dying. Women who have nothing in common except the fact they once worked for the military. And they knew Jack Reacher years ago. How and why these women are in danger baffles the elite FBI team working the case. There is no trace evidence. There are no obvious links among the victims. The bodies have no fatal wounds, and few distinguishing marks. And the killer has entered and exited their homes like a summer breeze. Are these the perfect crimes? And what is the motivation behind such deadly care and precision? There is only one certainty: a new kind of killer is at work, one so calm and cautious that even the brilliant Jack Reacher is left running blind.

Review: Running Blind (Jack Reacher #4)

User Review  - Donald - Goodreads

I greatly enjoy the character Jack Reacher and have read virtually all of Mr. Child's novels starring that character. This particular book was very enjoyable although the ending was too far-fetched to be credible. That didn't prevent me from savoring the story itself, however. Read full review

Review: Running Blind (Jack Reacher #4)

User Review  - Ada Iaboni - Goodreads

Although there were murders, as all these novels have, this one was a much more psychological. The reader has to really think! I did figure it out, but it was much later in the story. A very good one! Read full review
