Re: The Book thread.
The Enemy & The Affair are prequels. The Enemy I think is one of if not the best Reacher book to date anyways. Gives you a real feeling of what the guy is about and helps you understand why he eventually leaves the Army.
Killing Floor is the first Reacher book written and there is a major plot point in it that is kinda important for some of the later books (Without Fail in particular) but basically most of them are singular stories. Some reoccuring characters like Jodie in Tripwire/Running Scared and Francis Neagley making repeated appearances but its nothing too hard to keep track of.
Die Trying & Nothing to Lose are both kinda bad/boring compared to the others.
Persuader the 7th book, is pretty action packed and a good pick up for someone getting into the series or One Shot, the 9th and book the movie is based on is also a good place to start if you don't want to start at the beginning, but yeah The Enemy and Killing Floor are both two of the better books and the start.
