I love this short story. It’s about a 16 year old Reacher, who still kicks butt! This one takes place when he was New York City, heading to West Point to visit his brother. He runs into this girl that is in trouble and he steps in to “save” her. Little does he know she is not who she protrays to be. From there the story just takes off, and I was on another Reacher adventure in the city that never sleeps.
July 1977. Jack Reacher is almost seventeen, and he stops in New York City on the way to visit his brother at West Point. The summer heat is suffocating, the city is bankrupt, and the mad gunman known as Son of Sam is still on the loose. Reacher meets a woman with a problem, and agrees to help her . . . but then the power grid fails and the lights go out, plunging the lawless city into chaos. What does a visiting teenager do in the dark? If that visiting teenager is Jack Reacher, the answer is plenty.
