Personal by Lee Child

Personal by Lee Child - 368 pages
Jack Reacher series - Book 19

This book is definite departure from the Reacher formula established by Child in the previous 18 books.  Reacher gets in lured into contact with a shadow arm of the US government which then embroils him a worldwide hunt for a potential assassin with a personal vendetta.  The trademark Reacher wit and action scenes are missing from the majority of the book.  It is a good story and I was engrossed but it didn't feel like the Jack Reacher we've known previously and that made me a little sad.  Hopefully the next book will have Reacher back on his hitchhiking anti-authority ways helping to right the wrongs being done to the powerless in our society.
