Small House of Everything

  • Lee Child, One Shot.  A Jack Reacher thriller.  In Indianapolis, a sniper kills five people -- all with perfectly aimed head shots.  Within hours an arrest is made and an airtight case is built.  The accused refuses to talk except to say, "They got the wrong guy," and then, "Get Jack Reacher for me."  The book was the basis of Jack Reacher, the first film in a franchise (two movies thus far) vehicle for Tom Cruise, whose stature belied the six foot five inch character from the books.  (Author Lee Child, himself six foot five, had to sit behind a desk for his cameo role with Cruise in the movie.)  I saw the film, which was interesting but highly forgettable.  I'm halfway through the book now and it is anything but forgettable.
