As Reacher would say, “Not close.”
Child writes the Reacher novels in the first person voice of Jack Reacher, the former Army MP and hellacious do-gooder and Dick Hill, who has read over 400 audio books is Reacher in the same way that Basil Rathbone will always be Sherlock Holmes and Carroll O’Connor, Archie Bunker.
The novel itself? It is a prequel, the last detail that Reacher had prior to leaving service. Now, the Reacher novels are not my usual cup of java but they all have that magic “hook” and a formidable main character and in sound, the fantastic characterization of Dick Hill.
