Where is Jack Reacher? It’s a little bit odd that he simply shows up somewhere every fall with no explanation for where he’s been, don’t you think? It took ten years to find Osama Bin Laden, perhaps the most wanted criminal on earth. But even he was living somewhere all that time. He wasn’t on […]
Whew! Now that we’ve wrapped up the False Truth Mystery Serial, I have a little more time on my hands. (Emphasis on little… I’ve also been working on the next Hunt for Jack Reacher book, which should be available in the fall, publishing gods willing.)
