"You do not mess with the special investigators." — in "Bad Luck and Trouble"

"The stories are all very contemporary, but Reacher is an old-West character for sure.
He could be a Zane Grey character. But the funny thing is, I didn't really realize that
until well after the first book was written, and I wasn't a big Western fan as a kid."
— Lee Child
