Personal (Jack Reacher, #19) by Lee Child

Nineteenth in the Jack Reacher thriller series revolving around a lone wolf, retired from the army and exploring his America.

A special thanks to NetGalley and Bantam Press for allowing me to enjoy this eARC.

My Take
Child knows how to pull a reader in. Of course, “knowing” Reacher, Child already has quite a bit set up for us ahead of time, lol. I do love “listening” to Reacher make his conclusions. His questions. His curiosity. His knowledge. Although…I don’t remember Reacher thinking about the So

Money, Money, Money – Wikipedia

Money, Money, Money” is a song recorded by Swedish pop group ABBA, written by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus. It was released as a single on 1 November 1976, as the follow-up to “Dancing Queen” (both from the album Arrival). The B-side, “Crazy World”, was recorded in 1974 during the sessions for the album ABBA.

ABBA perform parts of “Money, Money, Money” live in the 1977 film ABBA: The Movie. In the popular musical, Mamma Mia!, the song is sung by the character of Donna as she explains how hard she has to work to keep the taverna in order and her dreams of a better life. In the 2008 film, Meryl
