Jack Reacher is contacted by a sergeant from his old “special investigators” unit after four members of the unit have been killed. The surviving members need to be rounded up to avenge the deaths and live up to their motto “you don’t mess with the special investigators”. In a slight change for Jack we see him investigating as part of a team rather than in his usual lone status which allows the character to develop in different ways and give us new insight into who Jack Reacher is. Violent and intense, fans will not be disappointed.
You DO NOT MESS with the Special Investigators!
The events of 9/11 changed Jack Reacherâ€™s drifter life in a practical way. In addition to his folding toothbrush, he now needs to carry photo ID to get around. Yet he is still as close to untraceable as a human being in America can get.
So when a member of his old Army unit manages to get a message to him, he knows it has to be deadly serious. The Special Investigators always watched each otherâ€™s backs. Now Reacher must put the old unit back together. Someone has killed one of them, and he canâ€™t let that go.
