Ng wanderlust But not for long First the trail is suddenly and inexplicably closed Then the military police show up in force Maybe it's a drill Or maybe it's trouble the kind of trouble that always finds Reacher no matter how far he travels off the beaten path. This is the first Lee Child offering featuring Jack Reacher that I felt was truly awful I gave it 2 stars only out of homage to the author and one of the best of fiction action heroes ever Otherwise it would have merited zero stars I ll be tempted to shoplift my next Jack a Reacher novel just to recoup my investment

In this short story from Lee Child Jack Reacher is again on the move But even a pleasant hike on a beautiful summer day turns into a walk on the wild side and perhaps something far sinisterJack Reacher is on the road hitching a ride with some earnest young Can. Lee Child has been one of my favourite authors for seventeen years I ve read each and every one of his books twice met the author himself got a signed copy of A Wanted Man shared a beer with Lee in the Savoy Hotel London and Jack Reacher is one of my all time favourite characters I even enjoyed the film and was one of the minority who thought Tom Cruise did a decent job Basically I m invested in this author and have been for some time However this was the first time I felt disappointed after reading a book by Child It s because Not A Drill waswell moderately decentReacher books are generally addictive Containing the right amount of mystery intrigue smarts and humour for any fan of thrillers I would consider these books essential reading Harking back to the days of hard boiled noir and anti heroes Reacher is a leading man that everyone appreciates However when Child started doing short stories the Reacher enigma so to speak lost some of its appeal This isn t due to the story itself Not A Drill is concise smart short and very slick it just seems to betoo short Reacher revels when he s unwound slowly and the short stories don t do it for me in that respect Just as they get started it s over The worrying thing is that the other shorts were great so I concluded that Not A Drill was missing something It hit me when I reached the 74% mark on my Kindle and the story ended And there it was This story was rushed the conclusion ending on a cliffhangersudden ending that kind of come out of nowhere Yes Child has his next novel Personal coming out this month and if this is the lead in then fair enough However if that isn t the case then this story was a blatant attempt to sell the new novel the final 16% of my Kindle time taken to show us an excerpt of the new book Good promotion yes but as a Child fan I m invested I will buy the next book but I would also have liked another 16% of Not A DrillI felt short changed and this is rare but this left me with a sour taste in my mouth3 Too short Yes Reacher is better as a longer tale a novel you can sink into and spend several hours divulging with It doesn t mean the shorts should suffer but they shouldn t end this uickly This seems like a stopgap to the next novel and I can t wait but this story shouldn t suffer in the process Worth a read all Child stories are but you may end up feeling rushed to a conclusion that doesn t make a lot of sense Maybe that was the pointlet s hope Personal explains this if that s the case

    Gotta love an easy before bedtime read in one setting novella I actually enjoyed this one than the other Reacher novellas in large part due to the Maine northwoods setting Child did a masterful job of making me feel like I was in the still silent woods on a mysterious hiking trail in the middle of nowhere I appreciated that Reacher didn't have to shoot anyone or even beat anyone senseless in this short tale
