Third Reacher in my Reacher year. There are 24 of them in total, not counting the novels with Andrew Child.
The premise of The Visitor is great, as it antagonises Reacher’s army loyalty to the FBI’s by-the-book procedures. It mocks criminal profiling and has some interesting scenes in Quantico but the resolution is a WTF one and it really lets it down. I mean it is coherent with the book’s universe but not plausible in the real world. It is the solution to a puzzle and that is all.
I cannot say what I learned about in this novel without revealing the plot but it wasn’t as abundant a harvest as with some of the other books in the series. Interesting to set the character a little more, as Reacher inherits a house in New York and hates owning property.
