Another episode I had to go back and watch, I only remembered it vaguely. Overall good episode, a little heavy-handed with the moralizing, but still entertaining.

Megabooks I liked Geordi‘s diplomacy in this one. It definitely showed some range in his character! 🖖🏻🖖🏻 6mo
RamsFan1963 @Megabooks True. Geordi was always an underdeveloped character, down in engineering waiting to tell us the engines were about to blow or something equally catastrophic 6mo
Megabooks @RamsFan1963 he was really good at rolling underneath the engineering block out door, that‘s for sure!! 6mo

Jack Reacher #8 - This was a really good one! It takes place when Reacher was active military police on a base in North Carolina. It was nice to meet Reacher‘s mom and his brother made several appearances. ❤️ #ReadingUSA2019 #NorthCarolina

10.48 pm here, so time to change the pace of reading and pick up this Jack Reacher book. Quite some time since I read the last one, but keen to get back into Reacher‘s world. #24in48

Andrew65 I was surprised to see at least the beginning of the book is set in the past @minkyb 2y
minkyb @Andrew65 Hard to remember all the adventures but through them all Reacher is a great character. 2y
Andrew65 @minkyb Most definitely. 2y

I'm still surprised that I'm a fan of Lee Child, but I am. What's more, he's becoming one of my "bad mood/ stress reading" go to authors. Reacher always wins but the world isn't ever saccharine or sweet and it's refreshing to see someone doing the right thing, because it's the right thing even while knowing that it's going to cost them. Solid pacing, good and enjoyable plot and some deep & reflexive moments. Highly #recommended ????

MrBook Great review! One of my favorite authors too. 😊👍🏻 2y
GlassAsDiamonds @MrBook 😊😊😊 Thanks!!! 2y

I suspect if you polled most, they would not expect wisdom from a Jack Reacher book. They'd be wrong. #quote #unexpected

I enjoyed this story. This is part of the Jack Reacher series which are military mysteries. I do recommend it to anyone who likes those type of mystery books.
