The New Jack Reacher
Every year for the last eight or nine years, I have received the new Jack Reacher novel as a present, they come out this time every year.
I have just started reading it, and already feel short-changed - the book had about a hundred pages less than standard, and the print is twice the usual size.
I know Lee Child is handing over the series to his brother, I hope this is not a sign of things to come.

I must admit I stopped reading the new ones a couple of years ago. Another negative point was when he sold the film rights to tiddly Tom, I find it hard to forgive that decision which I can only conclude was for filthy lucre.
The Amazon version was much better, we will have to wait a while as we dont have Prime
I have finished the novel now.
Reacher was no more than a minor character, the plot would have lost nothing if he wasn't in it at all.
If this is how things are going, don't advertise them as 'Reacher' stories if he is a barely noticeable bit-part character, you are letting fans down with this sort of stuff.
