..have read all of Lee Childs’ Jack Reacher novels and enjoyed all of them to varying degrees. Past Tense is a solid B+ in my opinion.There are two stories that eventually come together and the mysteries of both kept me guessing. Jack Reacher himself is slightly more brutal in this book than he has been in past books, which is not something I enjoyed.We get a little more of Jack Reacher’s family history, which is interesting. We also get a few characters that cross paths with Reacher who are also interesting. I think this is 4-1/2/Stars!Overall, an enjoyable read for a Reacher series fan.
