Summary

In this new exclusive short story, number-one Sunday Times best-selling author Lee Child goes back to 1989, when Jack Reacher is serving as an officer in the military police.

A young lieutenant colonel in a stylish handmade uniform roars through the damp woods of Georgia in her new silver Porsche - until she meets a very tall soldier with a broken-down car. What could connect a cold-blooded off-post shooting with Reacher; his elder brother, Joe; and a secretive unit of pointy heads from the Pentagon?

Small Wars is a brand-new Jack Reacher short story, published exclusively as an audio download.

Includes an exclusive chapter from the new Reacher novel #20, Make Me (publication 10 September 2015).

Good Story

A good story just far too short. I thought that the length was a typo, otherwise I would not have wasted a credit on it.
Sadly disappointed.

Too shortt

This felt very short, even for the other short stories. I liked how much continuity to other Jack Reacher books there was though.

small wars, big bath

straight into the action, then the investigation with the added intrigue of Reacher still being in the army plus the involvement of brother Joe, & all wrapped up in the time it takes for a decent bath.
