Deep Cover Jack - Diane Capri - Hunt For Reacher Book 4

I have now read seven of the stories in Diane Capri’s Hunt for Reacher series. And this one was another solid 5/5 stars. This one relates to people and events from Persuader by Lee Child. At the beginning we are given a cast of characters. I have started playing much closer attention to this list as we begin a story. The list this time is:

Kim L. Otto
Carlos M. Gaspar

Charles Cooper
Lamont Finlay

Alex Branch
Susan Duffy
Theresa Justice
Terry Villanueva

Leo Abrams
Viktor Sokol

Jack Reacher

Some characters are primary to the story, some are encountered via reference, phone call, emails or just passing indication. And some seem elusive, especially Jack Reacher himself. Persuader was not one of my favorite books. It was much darker and more violent than most of the others. But returning to the characters and seeing where they are now is one of the best parts of this series. And occasionally we get to meet some more new and interesting characters. 

In some ways this story is nearly as dark as Persuader. In this volume Agents Otto and Gaspar decide to turn up the heat. They head to Houston to confront ATF agent Susan Duffy. But she is not there, and the circumstances are suspicious. Soon The agents and Duffy’s former partner, Alex Branch are heading in her direction. They soon team up and realize that the house by the sea is being used for some pretty terrible purposes again. But without Reacher, with limited supplies and even less chance of backup can the pull off a rescue?

This was the seventh of Diane Capri’s Jack books that I have read. And with each one I appreciate the series more. It is amazing the adventure that Otto and Gaspar have had in 28 days. I was hooked after reading the first story in this series and know I will be reading them all. And so far, they have not let me down. I am trying to pace myself to just a book a week, but it is so hard to not pick up the next volume as soon as I finish one. I have already picked up the eBooks for all that are currently available, and have Prepper Jack on my wish list for once it releases. 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 these books tie in so nicely. 

This is a great book and series. For fans of the Reacher books, or movies. Or for anyone who enjoys a good mystery/Crime literature read. One of the best in the series.
