The Midnight Line Audiobook by Lee Child
Lee Youngster gives his books such nondescript titles that you often need a mnemonic to remember what they have to do with. “The Midnight Line” is another forgettable name, so what should we call it? I began thinking of it as “the one with the West Point ring”: That’s a story factor unlike anything in Child’s previous very successful Jack Reacher books, and also it turns up in Chapter 1, so it’s no looter.

There’s an unexpected Jack Reacher on display here. It turns out he can in fact be a compassionate person (much more so than in “Personal,” the strangely impersonal 2014 book in which he collaborates with a group to quit an assassin). But Child recognizes better than to begin “The Twelve o’clock at night Line” with Mr. Nice Guy. Reacher has a track record to live up to, after all: drifter, loner, knuckles the dimension of walnuts, etc
. When “The Midnight Line” begins, Reacher remains in a spiritual no place, after having taken care of to invest 3 whole days with Michelle Chang, his simpatico partner from “Make Me.” (That’s the one regarding the mysterious Midwestern small town called Mom’s Relax, which Reacher made a decision might be hinky just on the basis of its name. Good call.) Michelle has left a note comparing Reacher to New york city City (“I love to visit, yet I can never live there”), so he’s on his very own once again. And it’s off to the bus terminal– where else?– and another destination unknown.
At a rest stop, he sees that West Point class ring in a pawnshop. As a West Point man, Reacher recognizes how hard-won these rings are, and how much distress it should have required to make a graduate pawn one. So he’s interested. And also it’s a daintily-sized female’s ring. Much more interested. He cuts his journey short as well as chooses to find out just how the ring entered the window.
Youngster succeeds at taking a seemingly small issue similar to this as well as going from zero to 60 with it. Yet this time around the acceleration takes place credibly, and also does not head towards an impossibly huge climax, which has happened in a lot of Reacher publications to state; going from little ring to missile silo is not outside the world of Kid’s creativity. The hunt takes Reacher initially to a Rapid City, S.D., laundromat, whose owner, Arthur Scorpio, seems to be running some kind of illegal business. Naturally, Reacher threatens to throw Scorpio in a tumble clothes dryer above heat if he will not offer details.
After that Reacher meets a private detective who is trying to find the similar small-fingered lady. And they both wind up in a remote corner of Wyoming that Child summons especially well. Not all of his books are as strongly aesthetic as this set. They usually feature long straight roadways and empty landscapes. “The Midnight Line” describes old railroad land that’s sparsely inhabited, etched with unmarked routes as well as long, rough driveways; neighborly if your concept of a next-door neighbor is an unfamiliar person 20 miles away, and also easy to understand to Reacher just because the Military taught him just how to read topographical maps.

The pieces of the story collaborated as Reacher’s armed forces satisfaction as well as the neighborhood’s immoral opioid usage intersect. The bad actors are nominally the dealerships, yet “The Twelve o’clock at night Line” does not demonize its bad guys the method Kid’s books generally do. As well as the addicts aren’t rejected or treated as stereotypes. Guide voices solid sentences about the concerns that are increased here, as well as it’s no stretch offered Reacher’s principled military background. The last phases have more psychological heft than anything Kid has composed in the past.
