Get Back Jack - Diane Capri - Hunt For Reacher Book 2

This was the fourth of Diane Capri’s Jack books that I have read. And to date this one is by far my favorite! This one is more of a short story, or even chapter in the large Hunt for Reacher story. This one is almost four times the length of the two previous short stories in the series. It is something you can really sink your teeth into. I was hooked after reading the first story in this series and know I will be reading them all. I am trying to pace myself at about a book a week. I have already picked up the eBooks for all that are currently available. And plan on reviewing one a week until I have reviewed them all. In the six months before reading this series I read 29 Jack Reacher Novels and short stories by Lee Child. And somehow, I stumbled upon these books while preparing one of my reviews and recalled my dad having mentioned them. So, I decided to give one a try. And I am very thankful that I did. I typically read a couple hundred books a year, and the last few years have been over 300 a year. And at the pace I am going I will finish off this series un under a year from my first Reacher read. These stories are great reads for Reacher fans. But they are written well enough that they could be read on their own. But they really ought to be read in order, something I must admit that is something that I often do not do, but in this case am sticking to the order. Lee Child himself has even plugged these books in the Reacher Report. And they deserve the applause. 

In this part of the saga of FBI special agents Kim Otto and Carlos Gaspar now trying to track down Jack Reacher via his old team the 100th. But most of them members are either dead or now missing. The one they do connect with is Frances Neagley and she does not prove very cooperative. This story really amps up the action and the drama. And in some ways it reads like a Reacher novel with out Reacher being in it. The elements involved are:

Missing women
Child hostages
A young man murdered
A shootout 
Travelling back and forth to Mexico and taking on a gang

Otto, Gaspar, and Neagley end up cleaning up the remnant from a mess that was left behind 5 years ago. This is a great story that was very hard to put down. 

Another great story in an excellent series, may favorite so far.
