So what is it about bus […]

Held for ransom. Something along those lines happens to Jordan Fox in the False Truth Mystery Serial. In the process, Jordan’s wrists are duct taped together in front of her. Jack Reacher’s Rules teaches us that “The width of […]

5 Cool Travel Gadgets For Reacher Hunters

Lee Child’s Jack Reacher travels light. He carries a folding toothbrush, an ATM card, and an expired passport. Talk about bare bones travel, right? Hitching rides, taking the bus. No, thanks.

How Will You Use Your Leap Second?

Jack Reacher has a clock in his head. For the rest of us, on June 30th, 2015, at 23:59:60 UTC, the world clock will gain an extra second. As best I understand it, this happens because Earth’s rotation around its own axis is slowing down. Very, very, VERY gradually. But still, enough that it makes the […]
