Wow, what talent! Not only the mix, the pace, the mood, the wit, the tongue in cheek and the writing style hold perfect for this genre, but also it tops all else I have read in the last year for being the most absolutely "current". And not only in the politico, but in the every woman "eyes" of Otto. This is the woman who will break the glass ceiling.

It was a 6 star for entertainment value too. Getting that award as it did (detailed in the trailer), entirely understandable.

Capri returns with another Hunt for Reacher novel, pulling in past history of Lee Child's popular character with her own spin. Working alone at the start of this mission, FBI Special Agent Kim Otto head to Fort Bird, North Carolina to liaise with a former military colleague of Jack Reacher's, at a posting that saw nothing but trouble develop for the elusive man. Learning little of interest on Base, Otto settles in for a quiet night at her hotel, but is roused by a shooting at the local strip clu ...more

Title: Jack and Joe (Hunt for Jack Reacher #6)
Author: Diane Capri
Pages: 250
Year: 2015
Publisher: AugustBooks
My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.
Diane Capri’s Hunt for Reacher series continues on in this latest gripping suspense novel. I sat and read straight through the book as I noticed that unlike others the beginning of the story starts in first person view of Agent Otto. Agent Otto is alone in her investigation because her partner, Agent Gaspar, is home seeing if his son is about to enter the world

You never really quite know what is going to happen when your boss calls. That is the downside of being employed. The paychecks are nice, but it’s those pesky phone calls.

Diane Capri has created as parallel world to Lee Child’s vaunted REACHER series; two FBI agents, Kim Otto and Carlos Gaspar, who have been tasked by their Charlie-esque boss—Cooper—to build a file on Jack Reacher and his activities since the end of “The Affair”; the purpose is ostensibly to vet Reacher for a confidential govern

special Agents Kim Otto and Carlos Gaspar back on the trail searching for the elusive Jack Reacher. It is hard to find someone who has remained off the grid for the past 15 years.

When I read, I want the story to take me away; I want to be part of it. I want my particular environs to "fade" while my total concentration focuses on the book. JACK AND JOE gave me exactly that! I've been a fan of Lee Child's Jack Reacher Series for some years (and a fan of Reacher), and Diane Capri' s series, THE HUNT FOR REACHER) intensifies my delight.

Received an advance copy from the author. I really like this series, as it looks at a favorite character from a very different point of view. Agents Otto and Gaspar are not given all of the data, and have formed an opinion of Jack Reacher that is quite at odds with that of most of Lee Child's longtime readers. Another installment in the Hunt for Reacher series that does continues to fill in Reacher's backstory. Jack and Joe gives more information about the brothers' relationship, as well as work ...more

started reading yesterday. just finished. I couldn't put it down. it feels like Otto and Gaspar are family. still looking for Reached and finding other problems instead. I think I've read all of Lee Childs Reacher novels, and Dianes novels are a wonderful tie in to continuing Reachers life.

There's only one reason to read Diane Capri's Hunt for Reacher books, and that is Jack Reacher. Honestly, if the stories were about FBI agents hunting a mysterious character we never heard of before, who would read them?

So does Capri scratch the Reacher itch? A little, and I'll probably try another in the series. This one started off strong, but by the end it felt flat and formulaic. I didn't much like FBI Special Agent Otto, her partner, or her supernaturally-aware boss. Actually I didn't like
As part of the Jack Reacher Universe, as the film companies call these spin offs, this is well worth a read even though the great man doesn't appear in them. Nice easy reading on my daily train commute. Maybe, just maybe, there's a glimpse of him though? This is the sixth book in the series and I've also read the fifth so they don't seem to need to be read in sequence as each one is a stand alone tale, much like the Lee Child books.

Very scattered. Disappointing characters with a confusing storyline. If you like Reacher books don't buy this one

It was confusing and messy. The characters were not well developed and didn't seem to have anything to do with Reacher other than an excuse to get his readers to buy this book. Not a good read.

I don't think I would read this series without it being connected to the Jack Reacher character, although this one was a little better than earlier stories.

Diane Capri delivers readers a mystery thriller in JACK AND JOE; she creates a complex fast moving story. Capri introduces her readers to her protagonists, FBI special agents Kim Otto and Carlos Gaspar. She provides their individual backstories giving her readers a look at Otto’s unique working relationship with Gaspar, and also updates as needed to continue development of Otto and Gaspar. Capri introduces her readers to Charles Cooper, Otto and Gaspar’s boss, and Lamont Finlay, a presidential a ...more

Another good read from Diane Capri. There were a bunch of twists and turns; some implausibility, but good nonetheless. Jack will never be found, I'm afraid...!

Jack Reacher is a fictional character, the hero of a series by Lee Child. Child encouraged Capri to write about his character, Reacher is the MacGuffin in this novel and the series she wrote. FBI Special Agents Kim Otto and Carlos Gaspar are given the assignment to complete the dossier on Reacher; Kim doesn’t trust her boss all that much as he has put her in harm’s way more than once—and without remorse. Also he doesn’t give her the full picture.
Kim is scheduled to meet with U.S. Army Colonel E

I am a big fan of the Lee Child books with the larger than life character Jack Reacher (who should never of been played by Tom Cruise in a movie). I have my calendar marked with the date of his next book release this Sept 8. Diane Capri's new book, Jack and Joe, helped fill the void while waiting for the Child book to come out. In this latest adventure of the continuing saga of FBI agents Otto and Gaspar, they continue to search for Jack Reacher in an attempt to vet him for a classified assignme ...more

I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

This is the first in the 'Hunt For Jack Reacher' series that I have read but I was instantly hooked. I am a massive Jack Reacher fan anyway, I mean who isn't right? So I was eager to know how Diane Capri approached this because Lee Child writes about Jack so so well, but as we follow Agents Otto and Gaspar as they build their file on Reacher, we see the other side of things, we get to see what other people think about Jack, what other people s

First off, let me say that I am a BIG Jack Reacher fan!!! I have read the first 18 books in Lee Child's Jack Reacher series and many of the short stories (novellas?) also. It was with great delight that I found Diane Capri's Hunt for Jack Reacher series. Jack and Joe is book number 6...(and yes, I do own the other 5 also :-)). This book is written with the same intensity as Child's Reacher series books, and from a different perspective, that of FBI agents Otto and Gaspar. As I read JACK AND JOE, ...more

A solid entry in the Hunt For Jack Reacher Series. This one opens with Otto solo trying to fill in background on Jack Reacher. Boy, does she like to pop those antacids! In fact, she seems to be popping them like candies in this installment. A well-written story that fills in some backstory on not only Jack by his brother Joe. Gaspar comes in to join his partner later in the adventure on helping to fill in the backstory. While Jack and Joe never make an actual appearance in the book, there are en ...more

I find it remarkable that two FBI agents who have been investigating Jack Reacher for so many days now, after interviewing several people, have yet to form a coherent picture of who Jack Reacher is/was. The conclusions they automatically jump to are unbelievable. If something has happened, Jack Reacher must be the reason, and it was probably for some nefarious reason that benefited him personally. And they cling to that hypothesis like a lifeline, never letting go until some really big piece of ...more

FBI agents are still chasing Jack Reacher, even years after he's left the Army. This time they actually are getting to talk to a former colleague of Reacher's and she has been ordered to speak with them. However, she does not show up at the meeting on post. Turns out she was in a traffic accident on the way to the meeting. And things get fishier from there. I love Lee Childs' Jack Reacher character! And Ms. Capri's FBI agents are believable, hard working folks who just can't catch a break. Fun s ...more

Getting to know Jack

Who doesn't love Lee Child's anti-hero, Jack Reacher? So how then could you not love Diane Capri's "Hunt for Jack Reacher" series, and FBI agents Otto and Gaspar, tasked with finding a shadowy legend who is intent on not being found. I love the inside-out perspective I get from reading these books; it makes me want to go back and read the Reacher novels all over again, to double check the references between the two. I simply can't get enough about Jack. I'm so glad I found th

FBI agents Otto and Gasper are still trying to find Reacher.
The author present how the agents see Reacher with a different
opinion than Child’s Reacher. The agents learn more about the
relationship of Jack and Joe. The author weaves the past and
present together without difficulty.
This is the sixth book in The Hunt for Reacher Series but can
be read as a stand alone.

I enjoyed the suspense as the book progressed. Since, this was my first book in the series it took me a while to understand and judge the characters in the book. Otto, is a likely real life hero who resembles real life FBI agents. Otto's and Gaspar's relationship is more like Sherlock and Watson minus the hype. The story, for me, became interesting when Otto and Frank investigate Summer's death.
I look forward to reading the previous books in the series.
