On the suggestion of a friend, I finally got around to reading a Jack Reacher novel, Running Blind.
I’m not buying it.
Now, granted, Running Blind is a helluva novel, and Jack Reacher is certainly a man not to be fucked with, but Pike’s fury is a quiet one, thus more intimidating.
But, I won’t just hand it over to Pike. After Blind, I’m going to read Killing Floor (which I should have read first, as it’s the first novel, but like a dumbass I didn’t bother to check before I started Blind) and then, probably, move on to Die Trying, the second Reacher novel.
However, Round 1 goes to Joe Pike.
