Lee Child is what a thriller writer should be. He’s imaginative, articulate, persuasive, and, best of all, entertaining. Reading any of Lee Child’s books is a great way to spend a few hours. I bought “Night School” at a book store in hard bound because I keep all of Lee’s books in my personal library. “Night School” is a “prequel” to Jack #Reacher as an ex-military cop in that it takes place while Reacher was still in the US Army in the late 1990s. I don’t want to spoiler the dynamite ending, so I’ll say that I loved it. After I finished it, I loaned it to a friend who has read all the Jack Reacher novels also, and she said it was her favorite Reacher novel–the best that Lee Child has ever written. I can’t say that because they are ALL excellent.
