A well-done tale of Reacher's childhood that left me wanting more. In this story, we find out a lot more about Reacher's family background. I've lamented recently that, since Reacher ages in real time, his present day adventures will soon be hampered by the fact that he's past 50 (no spring chicken), and can't keep taking down the nastiest bad guys indefinitely. I've thought that more forays into our hero's past is the way to go. In this story we get a glimpse that maybe there are a lot of untold tales of Jack and his more cerebral brother Joe. I can see them as more ass-kicking version of the Hardy Boys. Their globe-trotting youth as military brats would be a great springboard for stories of the young brothers Reacher.
