"Discover the thriller series that The New York Times calls "utterly addictive." After eleven straight global #1 bestsellers, Lee Child sends readers back to school with the most explosive Jack Reacher novel yet. It's 1996, and Reacher is still in the army. In the morning they give him a medal, and in the afternoon they send him back to school. That night he's off the grid. Out of sight, out of mind. Two other men are in the classroom--an FBI agent and a CIA analyst. Each is a first-rate operator, each is fresh off a big win, and each is wondering what the hell they are doing there. Then they find out: A Jihadist sleeper cell in Hamburg, Germany, has received an unexpected visitor--a Saudi courier, seeking safe haven while waiting to rendezvous with persons unknown. A CIA asset, undercover inside the cell, has overheard the courier whisper a chilling message: "The American wants a hundred million dollars." For what? And who from? Reacher and his two new friends are told to find the American. Reacher recruits the best soldier he has ever worked with: Sergeant Frances Neagley. Their mission heats up in more ways than one, while always keeping their eyes on the prize: If they don't get their man, the world will suffer an epic act of terrorism. From Langley to Hamburg, Jalalabad to Kiev, Night School moves like a bullet through a treacherous landscape of double crosses, faked identities, and new and terrible enemies, as Reacher maneuvers inside the game and outside the law. Praise for #1 bestselling author Lee Child and his Jack Reacher series "Reacher [is] one of this century's most original, tantalizing pop-fiction heroes."--The Washington Post"--… (more)

Another great Jack Reacher book. I liked the character, Sergeant Neagley. She was awesome. It seems like she was in another story, not long ago, but after Jack left the military. I enjoyed the entire story, just had a few quirks with repetitive phrases, that seemed un-Jack-like. ( )

Helmsworth said, "Ma'am, nothing was impossible. It was the Cold War. It was a kind of madness. One time they sewed a microphone and a transmitter in a cat's neck, with a thin antenna threaded through inside its spine and up its tail. They were going to train it to wander into the Russian Embassy compound and pick up loose talk. Its first day on the job it was run over by a car. Nothing was impossible and everything went wrong sooner or later." ( )

Night School is another Jack Reacher adventure. The principle location of this story is in Germany. It is a scary premise that in this case 10 mini nukes were stolen and sold to an enemy. No one even knew that the nukes existed. Night School is a good story from beginning to end. The book was awarded four stars in this review. ( )

In a prequel set in 1996, Jack Reacher is sent to "school" along with two others, one is FBI and one is CIA, reporting only to the head of the NSA, his deputy, and the President. An Iranian mole for the Americans reports that some American is selling something worth $100 million to terrorists. Each student grabs their most trusted colleague, which for Reacher is Sergeant Frances Neagley, who has reappeared in the most recent books. Things develop slowly, and Reacher has to wait 100 pages (maybe more?) to beat up his first victims. The highlight of the book may be the working relationship Reacher builds with the German detective as they seek to avert disaster. ( )
