Jack Reacher is minding his own business late one night riding the subways of New York. There are only a handful of passengers in his car and he has to observe the one that is demonstrating 11 of the 12 universal signs for a terrorist on a suicide mission. Jack is compelled to intervene and this lights the fuse for the 12th Reacher novel by Lee Child. I read recently that Hollywood has optioned all 12 novels and I can't wait to find out who will play one of the world's most famous fictional characters on the big screen. The actor will have to be about 6 ft. 5 and weigh a muscled 250. Thank goodness this will eliminate Tom Cruise and Mark Wahlberg as choices! This story is more cerebral than most of the others. Less action and more introspection.
