by Lee Child. This is the first of the Jack Reacher novels, stories of the adventures and crime solving escapades of an ex-military police officer. I watched a couple of Jack Reacher movies (with Tom Cruise in the title role) on airplane trips. I really enjoyed the movies so I decided to check out the books for a recent business trip.
The story is pretty good and certainly compelling, tracing and taking down a high-tech counterfeiting operation. I found the graphic details of the violence and the body count a little uncomfortable. Maybe I'll try one more in the series and see if I get the same impression.
