The Sentinel: A Jack Reacher Novel
During the early onset of the pandemic, around the first shut-down, and the subsequent lock-in, I kept occupied reading and rereading a number of novels and series. Any time I find a Tim Dorsey book on digital sale, like 99-cent versions? I tend to pick those up, as they are fun to reread, the excitement and the sheer insanity a welcome balm for troubling times. I worked through all of the John Sandford Prey series.

Sooner or later, I stepped back to early Lee Child, Jack Reacher novels, either reading or rereading a few of the early one.

The digital public library is a savior in these troubling times. But back to a new Jack Reacher.

“My philosophy is hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.” Page 42.

Another Jack Reacher dictum, resurfaced?

”No plan survives first contact with the enemy.” Page 159.


As filial pastiche, and the ghostly brother is excellent, the dressing, style, and characters all remain true to form.

Towards the end, maybe a two-third of the way through, it gets to that point where it’s just hard to set the book aside. Leave plenty of time to read.

Almost as good as the originals.
