Diane Capri is a decent writer. OK, got that out of the way. So, what's my problem? First, I am an avid Jack Reacher fan. Second, I am an avid Lee Child fan. Here's my issue. Jack Reacher does not show up in the books. He sort of does, but not really. His name comes up many times and some vague form of a person lurks about here and there. You are led to believe it might be Reacher. My point is, if Reacher was really there, there would be no doubt about his presence. He does not lurk, he is 'a metaphor of an unstoppable force'. Take that away and the books are ok. I am having an issue with my problem, as you can tell.
Read the books knowing you were drawn in by the use of the name Jack Reacher and decide for yourself if they are worth reading. If you buy them thinking it is more than a continuation of the story that occurred with the death of Jack Reacher's brother, you will be disappointed.
Buy them on the basis of 2 FBI agents working under the radar for a mysterious supervisor, then enjoy, don't let my problem be yours.
