THE AFFAIR is another Jack Reacher novel, never translated into German. So I decided to read it in original. The story plays in 1997 Reacher's last year in the army. In Carter Crossing Mississippi Janice May Chapman was found her throat cut. Nearby down the road is a big army base. Local sheriff's department accuse one of the army rangers done the crime. Reachers boss Leon Garber sends him down to Mississippi undercover to investigate and find out who really killed the woman. But the local Sheriff was a former Navy Seal MP and figures out within minutes, who and what Reacher is. So out of disguise Reacher finds out that two more women were killed by throat cut in the last nine months. Reacher now starts to dig deeper…
THE AFFAIR is a true investigation story with different suspicions in Carter Crossing and the nearby army base. Also its written in true Lee Child style whether it is in English or German. Not really one of the best Reacher stories, but for fans absolutely a must have.
Full 3 stars.
