No Middle Name: The Complete Collected Jack Reacher Short Stories

No Middle Name: The Complete Collected Jack Reacher Short StoriesNo Middle Name: The Complete Collected Jack Reacher Short Stories by Lee Child
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Reacher never disappoints this lady and Lee Child again hit a home run with these short stories. Some I had read before and some he used pieces of in full length novels but they were all enjoyable reads.

Too Much Time - Reacher realizes there is something hinky with a police sting when he is set up by the cops. He counts on an honest cop to help him catch the dirty FBI agent when he breaks out of jail

Second Son - Read before see my previous review

High Heat - Read before see my previous review

Deep Down - Read before see my previous review

Small Wars - I think this one would have been better if we hadn't known who the killer was from the beginning. Reacher's personal relationship with the killer allows him to solve a supposedly unsolvable case.

James Penney's New Identity - Reacher helps a veteran fleeing from an arson charge.

Everyone Talks - Uncharacteristically Reacher talks to much and helps a new cop stop a Protection racket. This one was actually told from the new female cops POV.

Not a Drill - Reacher helps find some missing hikers and discovers they aren't what they seemed to be.

Maybe They Have a Tradition - Reacher arrives at a posh estate in England in time to help rescue a doctor and a policeman who were on their way to the estate.

Guy Walks into a Bar - Reacher prevents a kidnapping once he figures out who the real victim is.

No Room at the Motel - Reacher gives up his room to a pg woman and her husband.

The Picture of the Lonely Dinner - Reacher stumbles into an attempt to capture/kill a spy.
