In the first chapter, it described how his brother was in jailed and later gone.

 

John got the news and was ordered to stay off the case. Which is something that not really possible. 

 

But then, he didn't fully believe his brother is guilty. He just don't know why an innocence man would run.

Jack Reacher got dumped and found a case
The Midnight Line - Lee Child

Jack Reacher got dumped by a woman. The drifter lifestyle is not for everyone. 

 

It seems pointless. But a lot of things is really pointless.

 

Reacher came crossed a West Point ring and used his usual persuasive method to get to know where it came from. 

A person has to go through a lot to get that ring. It is important to a person and shouldn't be given up that easy.

 

So it is either a stolen ring that needs to go back to its owner, or this person is in serious trouble and have to give up her ring. 

 

So he went and chase after whoever this ring belonged to.

 

He first find a drug dealer. 

 

Then the drug dealer pointed him to another person Sy. 

 

Turned out Sy was dead long ago. It is just for the drug dealer to put a hit on Reacher. 

 

He survived, of course. 

 

Now a private detective got involved, turned out he was looking for the same person.

 

Now where is she?
 

It turned out that she was in hiding.

 

There is a few twits in the end. Overall story is quite straight forward. Reacher found a person, a former Army personnel who needs help. And he helped. 

 

The backdrop of the story is the black market of prescriptive drugs. 

 

Still an okay story. 

 

4 stars read.

The Midnight Line - Lee Child

In the search for the missing West Point graduate, Reacher found out something.

 

Actually, I have guessed that much why no one see the woman living in such a low density population. 

 

Her twin sister is beautiful. And beautiful woman like to be seen. 

 

Unless she is no longer beautiful. 

 

And the ring indicated that either she was a victim of a crime, or she had given up in exchange something that is more important to her at the time. 

 

Sad really. Not a lot of action. More like a detective story than usual.

The Midnight Line - Lee Child

Jack Reacher got dumped. No surprise there. Not a lot of women could be a drifter like him.

 

So, he kind of drifted again. And while he is on the road, he came across a West Point ring, woman's size.

 

So instead of reflecting on why he got dumped and how he could improve his situation, he is now focus on who this ring belonged to and why this is on sale in a pawn shop.

 

That led him to a thief, then another. 

 

The start is good. Reacher is a bit more mature, but not quite.
