    With the motor vehicle accident putting the person in charge on the sidelines, Major Jack Reacher was requested to take his place. Along with Neagley, they were tasked to investigate the suspicious death of Caroline Crawford, a young lieutenant colonel who had met a grisly end in her brand new Porsche on the side of a deserted road in Georgia.

But Reacher’s methodical and meticulous approach meant there were soon more questions than answers. And then the State Police found a suspect who ticked all their boxes… Small Wars by Lee Child is a short story which also ticks all the boxes. A fast paced investigative story, it contains all the intrigue and Reacher charm that we’re used to in the full length novels. I thoroughly enjoyed it and have no hesitation in recommending Small Wars, especially to Reacher lovers.

    I have read all the Jack Reacher novels by Lee Child so it is no surprise that I decided to read this novella. I am a big fan of this action packed series and consider it my 'guilty pleasure'. The books are not particularly literary classics but they are great fun. This novella is set in 1989 when Reacher was still Army. A Lt. Col. has been shot and killed so Reacher investigates and suspects that what appears to be a straightforward case is not what it appears.

    Another enjoyable novella focusing on Reachers past. 1989 and still in the military, Reacher is sent to investigate a cold-blooded murder of a young officer in Georgia. As Reacher starts to deduce all the clues, it soon becomes apparent who the killer is. This was a really effective short story. With the reader already knowing the identity of the culprit, Child cleverly shows the reader how Reachers mind works to solve the case. It’s so effective and highlights how great this series can be.

    Well always enjoy a Lee Childs book. This is a very short story of 44 pages. So always hard to review, but four stars. This is a story from Jack Reacher past when in the military, a clever little story, showing how skilled he was at his role. One of the wealthiest and highest ranking officers in the military is killed, Jack Reacher job to find the killer, her does... Four stars Now finished book number 67 this year.

    Another Reacher book, short story from circa 1989 with brother Joe and his ever faithful NCO Neagley in tow. Such fun. This reminds me again how mad I get at Hollywood's choice of the on-screen Reacher :(

    In another throwback Reacher story, Child reminds his fans just how versatile his writing can be. When a female lieutenant colonel is killed off base, Jack Reacher is sent in to investigate on behalf of the US Military.

When a female lieutenant colonel is killed off base, Jack Reacher is sent in to investigate on behalf of the US Military. Learning a little of Caroline Crawford's backstory, Reacher discovers that she is working on a highly classified project within the Pentagon. Piecing together some clues, Reacher realises that she was murdered in an apparent carjacking of sorts, but many of the findings at the scene leave more questions than answers. Liaising with his brother, Joe, Reacher begins to get a better idea of what is going on, while county and state officials juggle responsibility for the homicide. Further investigation permits Reacher to weave together the final pieces of the puzzle, which explains the entire event, though the reader had an inkling all along. A great bridge novella for those waiting for the annual Reacher full-length submission. Some criticise Child for making these stories, shorter and less interesting than the full-length novels. It is quite obvious that character and story development are stilted when 35 pages replaces a full 300+ page submission, though it is how Child can tell the story and keep the flow that makes these pieces wonderful. Their succinct nature, along with the usual inquisitive and sarcastic sides to Reacher that fans expect is harder to do, while also pushing a full mystery into such a short space. Child is masterful in this and those who bemoan it need only realise what they signed on for in the beginning. I love spending a rainy afternoon getting my Jack Reacher fix, which Child provided me, and I encourage anyone with an hour free to pick this up and delve into the wonderful world of Jack Reacher before he went off the grid. Kudos, Mr. Child for this great short piece. Nothing replaces a full novel, but this will tide me over. Like/hate the review?

    This was fabulous. Succinct, and spot on Jack Reacher. The only thing better than Jack is adding Joe and Frances. And Lee Child did it. This retrospect back history short story gives us ultimate insight to the Reacher brothers and at the same time has more quotable 7 to 10 word sentences than Shakespeare. HUH, you say! Well, that's my opinion. And the Army nomenclature is 6 star. Excellent, excellent story about how young Jack has a temporary dish with the pointy-heads. How satisfying.

This was on my Kindle for a week and it was in the wrong form- so I had to return it and then get the Kindle version reloaded on a library based feed. Otherwise it would never have been sitting so long. Read in less than an hour. Will enjoy the points of view it brings to mind, quite a bit longer. Much longer.

    4-stars but too short The best of the Reacher short stories, and also the first time we see Neagle (chronologically) I still don't know how or where they met.

    This short story is 0.75 in the prequel chronology and 19.5 publication-wise in the Reacher thriller series revolving around Jack Reacher, a very perceptive military policeman. The story takes place between Forts Benning and Smith. My Take Yep, sure is nice to have family money. And Crawford is ambitious, as you'll discover a few pages in. It cracked me up how much arguing went on and all the "fine" points examined over whose jurisdiction the shooting fell in. More laughter ensued when I read that This short story is 0.75 in the prequel chronology and 19.5 publication-wise in the Reacher thriller series revolving around Jack Reacher, a very perceptive military policeman.

It cracked me up how much arguing went on and all the "fine" points examined over whose jurisdiction the shooting fell in. More laughter ensued when I read that Neagley is in charge of security for special forces command. I dunno, I can't imagine special forces needs a lot of mollycoddling, that they can protect themselves pretty well. Must've been a pretty cushy posting, lol. Oh, lord, it's just one of the many things I adore about Jack Reacher: "'Were you out sick the day they taught thinking?' 'Now you're being unpleasant.' 'Not yet,' Reacher said. 'You'll notice the difference.'" There is some useful information for would-be assassins in here. "He wanted expert bureaucrats, but he didn't want them to be in love with bureaucracy."There's a fun bit in here with Frances taking out a snarky lookie-loo of a local deputy. The sad part is how quickly the state police latched onto an easy suspect. And how little they paid attention to justice. The Story It's an assassination. One that gets passed up the line until a scapegoat is found. The Characters Jack Reacher, an MP, is an emergency fill-in. Sergeant Frances Neagley is transferred in to help shape things up. Fort Benning, Georgia, is… …where Reacher is temporarily based. The sergeant in the MP office is out of shape in so many ways. Major David Noble, an MP, was newly placed in charge of criminal investigations throughout the southeastern military districts. Until, that is. Fort Smith, Arkansas, is… …where the special operations school is located. Lieutenant Colonel Caroline Crawford, the new War Plans soldier, celebrated her promotion with a silver Porsche. Mr. H and Mrs. R Crawford are her paranoid parents. Captain Ellsbury is the local MP commander. The suspect is a too-tall, weird-looking black guy who fits the specs. Colonel Joe Reacher is Jack's older brother and has just been given a new counterintelligence command. The Cover and Title The cover is explosive with the red rays fanning out from the center of the background and a great contrast for the white outlined and embossed yellow font for the author's name and the title in a black outlined white tucked behind Child's name. The promo next to the author's name and the series info slipped in between the title flip the colors. The title is the concerned focus, "Small Wars" that could be compromised.

    I've always enjoyed Lee Child's Jack Reacher novels, but have found his Reacher short stories to be less than exciting. So I approached Small Wars with low expectations & found it to be the best short story he has written by a long way! It's great when an author can still surprise.

    I love when the brothers are in a story together. Their interactions are always brilliant. This one was late eighties, and Neagley makes an appearance too, she's a great character. All business, no bull! A lot like Reacher. I could read these forever!

    Another Reacher short audio for me narrated by Kerry Shale and with a run-time of around 1hr 15 mins it was an enjoyable quick fix. Set back in 1989 while Reacher is still in the military it’s a fairly standard investigation set-up following the murder of young lieutenant colonel. It’s what you expect from Reacher with his no-nonsense style and observing nature all in the form of a quick hit. I enjoyed this short more than the previous Reacher shorts I've come across; it kept things simple and to Another Reacher short audio for me narrated by Kerry Shale and with a run-time of around 1hr 15 mins it was an enjoyable quick fix.

    This is a short story about Jack Reacher, set back in his Army days. The story itself is great: rich army officer murdered, and Reacher uses his brain (and a little violence) to figure out who the killer is. Important addition to his back story (the main line of books, for those not familiar, take place after he laves the army). However, in the end less than satisfying to me--it felt like a set up for a political point, not a stand alone story...and the point is just silly.

    A trip back in time to when Reacher was still an MP and see how we solves a murder mystery involving a female officer with a secret. Good solid work of short fiction; we are used to this from Lee Child and again he does not disappoint. Very enjoyable reading...

    This Jack Reacher short was a great filler while I waited for Make me to be released in September, it also contains the first chapter of the new book to wet your whistle. The year is 1989.

We rarely get to read about Jack and his brother Joe in action together and this one has a twist I did not see coming and should be a surprise to the fans. An unexpected event has Jack pulled from overseas to cover a new position in the south, at the same time an execution occurs. The jurisdiction is somewhat murky given the location of the crime but is eventually taken by the State Police with the Army regulated to more or less spectators. A run in with local State Police and Reacher's bit bull Francis Neagley, results in a bruised ego and broken bones. In the end justice is served, just not how you'd expect. Fans of the series will enjoy it and even if you've never read any of the books, this is a great primer into the world of Jack Reacher.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Jack Reacher is just about my favourite recurring action character. Have read everything Lee Child has written with him in it and I've pre-ordered "Make Me" which thank goodness is coming out soon. But... I must say I was disappointed in the character's actions in this story. Hard to write this with no spoilers but I'll just say that it seemed like there wasn't too much detective work in this one. Reacher pretty much intuits who the perpetrator of the murder is with fairly thin evidence, and then Jack Reacher is just about my favourite recurring action character.

Reacher pretty much intuits who the perpetrator of the murder is with fairly thin evidence, and then Reacher's morals seem to go a bit murky (compared to other books) at the end as well. I think there would have been a very different outcome (based on other Reacher novels) if the murderer had been anyone else than he was. I think this would have been a better read if the character who was murdered was set up a bit more completely as an evil person. It's there implicitly, but especially when the character getting murdered is a woman, you'd better make her a really bad person *explicitly* if the reader eventually has to be okay with it, and that didn't happen here. Any other author and this would have been less than 4 stars, but the Reacher is the best, after all.

    I've read all the Jack Reacher short stories & have enjoyed them all, but in my opinion this one's the best. We go back in time to 1989 when Reacher was still in the Army & a Lt. Col. has been shot & killed off post ending her meteoric rise through the ranks. Reacher investigates & realizes there's more going on than meets the eye, & believes the man that local PD have arrested to be innocent. It's a fast paced story & highly entertaining.

I've read some other reviews in which people think that Reacher acts out of character after he solves the case,...I disagree because as a rule Reacher doesn't really care about the law, he only cares about what's right. If you've never read a Reacher novel or short story then here's a good place to start & see if you might enjoy since it's only a $1.99 on kindle & being just a short story you won't have much time invested either. Highly recommend!

    Lee Child finally got serious about writing a Reacher short story. This is the best, and it's not even close. It involves the murder of a military officer on a backwoods road in Georgia. The state police have a man in custody, but it falls to Reacher and Neagley to find the truth. No spoilers, but the opening scene is unexpected, to say the least. It’ll make you want to keep reading, for sure.

It’s an emphatic 5 stars and I highly recommend it to Reacher and thriller fans.

    This is a novella that is one and half hours long. It was great to have a story about Reacher’s military days. In 1989 Lt.

    A short story that can be read in an hour or so. It is set back in 1989 and the context is the US army developing plans for a possible invasion of Iraq. Rather prescient of Child!

There is some classic Reacher dialogue there and the appearance of Sergeant Francis Neagley always adds spice and interest to the story. A bit too far-fetched for my liking.

    Well, that's a lot of meat to pack into a short story. "Small Wars" was tacked onto the end of "Make Me." Honestly, I can't fathom why this plot wasn't used as the basis for a full novel. It was more interesting than the larger novel with which it arrived! In this case, I went with a 3-star rating because I felt like so much more needed to be done with this. I read it in minutes, but if it were more fully developed, I felt like it could have kept my attention for a while. A shame it wasn't devel Well, that's a lot of meat to pack into a short story.

    "'Were you out sick the day they taught thinking?' 'Now you're being unpleasant.' 'Not yet, ' Reacher said. 'You'll notice the difference.'" Reacher at his finest. A very short story, a quick investigation by Reacher. Where witty comments and conclusions are quickly forthcoming. Reacher is no-nonsense, back to basics, brilliant. And funny in his own little clipped way. A thoroughly enternaining short story, though a very quick read. From Reacher, we can never have enough. :) Enjoy.

    A very, very short novella featuring Reacher, his brother Joe and Neagley. An army officer is found dead along side the road in her personal vehicle. She's been shot three times, two in the chest and one to the head. A local man is accused of the crime but the evidence doesn't feel right to Reacher. Who would want to kill a bright and up coming officer? It just might surprise you. This one is set in 1989 when Reacher is still in the Army and Joe is still a Colonel working out of the Pentagon.
