"Running Blind" Jack Reacher #4 by Lee Child - Clever, brutal plot. Reacher loses touch with reality

When this book first came out, in the UK,  it was called “The Visitor”, which makes a whole lot of sense to me:  it links to the plot, it’s ambiguous about the nature and identity of the visitor and it’s easy to remember. 623 more words
