Jack Reacher, unlikely hero/drifter, visits the town of Mother’s Rest for no special reason but because he wants to know why it’s called Mother’s Rest. While asking around, he encounters PI Michelle Chang who is there to find a fellow detective who has gone missing. While Reacher has no obligation to help, he seems to enjoy getting himself into all kinds of trouble. In Make Me, the 20th novel in the Jack Reacher series by Lee Child, he does just that, and barely comes out alive.

As he partners up with Chang, they find they are not welcome in Mother’s Rest, and the more they probe, the more dangerous it becomes. The residents of the town are secretive and very unfriendly. And both Reacher and Chang find it gets worse as they travel to several other cities to uncover the truth. This is not your run-of-the-mill small town, and the bizarre happenings will keep readers on the edge throughout the entire novel.

There is good reason that Reacher is considered one of the most unique, interesting, and popular characters in modern fiction, and Make Me certainly adds to the appeal. As is expected and typical of Lee Child’s novels, there are twists and turns, as well as surprises throughout. The ending will catch readers off guard. Jack Reacher fans will love this novel, and those who are unfamiliar with the character will wonder why they haven’t been reading him through the years.
