Jack Reacher books are a joy to read. We finish them, with a certain amount of sadness knowing that there will be another years wait until the author, Lee Child releases the next book in the Jack Reacher series.

I have found a way to deal with this sadness and decided to help you! Instead of waiting a full year until the next Lee Child novel, what about checking out these 4 new Jack Reacher type characters that could actually, potentially steal the Reacher number 1 position in years to come.

If you like Jack Reacher, you will love these books, I can guarantee it.

To start you need a good scoring system to rank the Jack Reacher type characters.

I have ranked the characters on the following:

1) My Books Like Jack Reacher website review. If the books good, then it’s been reviewed on my site. Higher ranking books that have been reviewed, then the higher the Jack Reacher type character. See my book reviews here.

2) Any character like Jack Reacher has to have a certain type of physicality – are they able to handle themselves against any enemy?

3) Weaponry – Can the main Jack Reacher type character use a variety of weapons to do their job and escape danger?

4) Character – Jack Reacher is a loner, calm in danger, someone who operates on their own. Can the new Jack Reacher type of character handle the heat, have they got an ice cool demeanor in any impossible situation.

5) Plot – Jack Reacher books are written to grab your attention from the first page so that you start to read the Jack Reacher books in order. This score is decided by the first few pages, am I gripped from page one or do I want to throw the book in the bin straight away!

6) The Book ending – This is really important for me. Do you care about the Jack Reacher type character and do you want me to read the next novel in the series straight away? As with all Jack Reacher books, you want to start straight away on the next book.

These are the 6 score factors to decide which are the new characters that are like Jack Reacher.

  2. Interesting post and I love the concept for this site. A great way to help wait the time while you wait for the new book to be released. On Monday, I completed #10 in a series I was reading which was released that same day. I had to wait patiently for it to be released so I can certainly relate… I think an interesting category would be whether you would like to see the book you reviewed turned into a movie. Some books are great as books but not always good as movies. What is your favourite Jack Reacher book and movie thus far?

    1. Thanks for the comments – I try and add as much description in as I can so that people who like Jack Reacher can compare the other characters. My favourite movie so far is One Shot the first Jack Reacher which is really full of suspense and like the book.

      thanks again
