Retro (1992) task force investigation of the murders of scientists involved in a 20 year old gas leak in India that killed a thousand Indian citizens. Least Reacher-like book in the series. The addition of Andrew Child does not help ... ( )

Jack Reacher is returning to form. The Secret is the fourth book authored by Lee and Andrew Child, at least according to the title credits, and the best since Lee relinquished sole control of the series.

This throwback story returns to the time after Reacher’s (bogus) demotion from major to captain. He is assigned with agents from the FBI, CIA, and Treasury to a team tasked with identifying the killers of scientists involved in a secret project in 1969. All four agents have experienced setbacks in their careers, and they believe their superiors selected them to take the blame if the search for the killer is unsuccessful. Although plenty of scenes depicting gunfights and hand-to-hand combat occur, the book emphasizes the process Reacher and the team use to identify the killer. The writing is lazy in spots. In one scene, for example, one killer is surrounded by four FBI agents with guns drawn. Yet, in an unbelievable sequence, she incapacitates all four agents. Later, near the end of the book, Reacher has captured the killer, but she picks up a rusty nail and threatens to kill one of Reacher’s partners if he doesn’t surrender his weapon. Weaknesses like these mar the story. Yet, on balance, the story was enjoyable, and I’m looking forward to the next entry in this series. ( )

The Secret is another well written Jack Reacher story that not until the end do we, the reader, get to know the story. This book had a beginning, middle and end. The characters are believable but our hero, Jack Reacher, always has superpowers perhaps that is why he is so likeable. Four stars were given in this review. A good story. ( )

Jack Reacher… Lee Child, Andrew Child, The Secret, Scott Brick, narrator
Jack Reacher is one of my favorite characters. Marching through life to the beat of his own drummer, vigilante-like, he is always on the side of might makes right. This book was no different, and it sped along at warp speed. An old, secret military project between Russia and the United States, to develop antidotes to bio-weapons, or perhaps to create one with no antidote, took place in India, in the late 1960’s. Suddenly, more than two decades after it ended in what should have been ignominy, it had suddenly come back to bite the participants. One by one, they were dying, supposedly from natural causes, but somehow too frequently and suspiciously not to arouse questions surrounding their deaths. During the time of the biological experiments, when disaster struck with the escape of a lethal gas, a scapegoat took the fall for the deaths that occurred, and the story was whitewashed.
As few clues arose to identify the possible killer, and more participants died, a small task force was assembled by the Secretary of Defense in order to find out if their deaths were actually homicides and not accidental or suicides. Jack Reacher and a few others were brought in to investigate the possible crimes. They were ordered to find the culprit involved, to bring possible names and suggested theories to him ASAP. He wanted this issue settled or there would be Hell to pay.
To be honest, while I really liked the book because of the constant action, there were too many threads to keep an accurate track of developments. It began with compromised weapons and moved on to corporate intrigue, secret labs, sudden violent and unusual deaths, corrupt government, business and military officials, etc. There was over the top violence, and I often had to suspend disbelief as the murderer/s seemed too clever by half and Reacher a bit too prescient, often making scenes seem very implausible. Yet, somehow, by way of the author’s explanations, they also seemed possible. Also, the conclusion, which seemed to justify the murders because of heinous behavior on the part of others, seemed a bit irrational.
Still, the story is really creative and the characters are all very interesting as they develop. In very circular fashion, the ultimate reason for the disaster and the revenge that followed, was revealed. Almost single-handedly, my hero succeeded. I am hooked and can’t wait for the next Reacher novel. The narrator, Scott Brick, really helped make the book move along with the appropriate emphasis in every scene. ( )

2023 book #67. 2023. The story set in 1992 with Reacher part of an interagency task force investigating a series of seemingly unrelated murders. It gets off to a slow start but had a satisfactory ending. Reacher was getting too old for the series and I guess this is the solution. ( )
