This is the first in the Jack Reacher series and I can't wait to read more of this series or anything else Lee Child may write.
Jack Reacher is a retired military investigator, now a wanderer, even calls himself a hobo to the police who pick him up on suspicion of murder. He is new to the town of Margrave, GA,having just wandered in because he heard a story from his brother that a bluesman they both admired grew up and was killed in the small town.
Jack knows nothing of any murder and discovers that all in the town is not what it appears. Everything is new, people are scarce and the few who are in town are nervous. Jack finds himself investigating the murders he was accused of as well as the mysterious occurrences.
There is plenty of action, all of it colorfully and heart poundingly written.
