Tripwire by Lee Child

Tripwire by Lee Child
343 pages; 14 hrs., 31 min.

Jack Reacher is keeping a low profile in Florida.  He digs swimming pools by day and works as a bouncer at night.  Then an investigator comes asking for him, and before Reacher can figure out what he wants, the stranger is brutally murdered.  As he follows the PI's trail, Reacher becomes more and more interested in who was looking for him and why.  The search leads him to an old friendship, Vietnam War records, and long-lost skeletons on his way to unscrambling the clues and finding the answer.

The story is complex and I found it mesmerizing.  However, an evil character who enjoys torturing his victims is too disturbing for me.  This is book 3 of the Jack Reacher series, and I will definitely be taking a break before beginning book 4.
