So what is the case? Why were these three people cherry-picked? Because of an overheard message in a sleeper cell located in Germany: "The American wants a hundred million dollars." Reacher, Waterman and White were recruited to find that American before an act of terrorism happens.
My goodness, the level of non-stop action and suspense was high considering the times Reacher and his night school buddies followed fruitless leads. The story took off on a steady pace once the setting, introduction of characters and layout of the mystery was explained. Some may deem it slow but I preferred its pace so I could absorb what Jack Reacher was all about and follow the complex case. I say it was well done because now I heart Jack Reacher even more!

I normally don't do this but since Night School is a prequel, I skipped way ahead and read it out of order. There was no way I was reading 18 or so books before this new release. And I am glad I did! I have a deeper understanding of main character Jack Reacher and how he started off. Why he acts the way he acts and where his zero tolerance for bullshit comes from. Most of all, it was exciting to see that Jack Reacher maneuvers inside and outside the law from day one. The man has skills and intelligence!
