Synopsis

In this new short story from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child, available exclusively as an eBook, a young Jack Reacher knows how to finish a fight so it stays finished. He knows how to get the job done so it stays done. And, in one of his earliest challenges, he knows that his analytical brain is just as important as his impressive brawn.
 
Okinawa, 1974. Even at thirteen, Jack Reacher knows how to outwit and overpower anyone who stands in his way. And as the new kid in town, that’s pretty much everyone. His family has come to the Pacific with his father, who’s preparing for a top-secret Marine Corps operation. After receiving a rude welcome from the local military brats, Reacher and his older brother, Joe, intend to teach them a lesson they won’t forget. But it’s soon clear that there’s more at stake than pride. When his family’s future appears to come crumbling down, it’s the youngest Reacher who rises to the occasion with all the decisive cunning and bravura that will one day be his deadly trademark.
 
Second Son also includes a thrilling excerpt from Lee Child’s forthcoming novel, The Affair.

    Second son: a Jack Reacher Story

    Absolutely ridiculous. The plot COULD have been good but the writer really dropped the ball. It just was a huge "reach" to believe a 13 year old kid would or could advise the military and supply answers to solve the mystery. This is a classic FAIL for this writer! !!

    Loved it! Lee Child was brilliant to write pre-Reacher stories.

    Reacher as a Teenager.

    I enjoyed this short story as much as I enjoy Child's other Reacher novels. To understand how Reacher evolved was a hoot. He understood people even at 13yrs old. I fact, I got a few chuckles w/ this story as well as a few laugh out loud noises even if I was reading alone. I especially enjoyed the last few chapters. I highly recommend this short story, especially to all commuters.

    Great short story. Interesting to get to know Reacher as a boy.
