Added DiffLines:

* BadGuyBar: The far-right hangout in ''Night School'' is a classic example.


Added DiffLines:

* DenOfIniquity: The female messenger's meeting place in ''Night School'' is utterly one of these, complete with BestialityIsDepraved and BondageIsBad.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilPlan: Most Reacher villains make use of very down-to-earth but nevertheless highly effective [[PlotDevice Plot Devices]] to enact their plans, sometimes bordering on MacGuffin territory. Determining the identity of the PlotDevice generally composes a huge portion of the plot, to the point where a single sentence can give away the entire story.


Added DiffLines:

* NukeEm: Discussed in ''Night School,'' when Reacher and his colleagues are trying to figure out what's being traded. The idea hangs over their heads for a while, but not very long everyone would know if a nuke went missing, considering how many safeguards are layered on them. [[spoiler: The truth isn't quite so simple.]]

Added DiffLines:

* HatesBeingTouched: Frances Neagley. This conveniently keeps her relationship with Reacher strictly platonic, allowing her to be a recurring sidekick rather than a particularly talented GirlOfTheWeek.

** And you can't forget whenever Child mentions Jack hitting someone in the solar plexus (the area between the pecs and stomach).

A series of novels by British-born Lee Child, about [[UsefulNotes/YanksWithTanks ex-Military Policeman]] Jack Reacher, WalkingTheEarth after mustering out from over a decade of service. A MilitaryBrat, having spent his younger years being posted all round the world, he decides to get a closer look at his home country. On his journeys across America he stumbles across his fair share of forgers, smugglers, gun runners, drug dealers and assassins. He then proceeds to sit down with each of them in turn and have civilized discussions -over a lovely cup of tea- why they really should stop all this unpleasant business and whatnot; Actually, being a JerkWithAHeartOfGold and a former soldier with a personal code of honor, he executes vigilante justice without mercy and proceeds to in a very realistic matter kick the asses of the villain/s.

* GoodOlFisticuffs: How Reacher typically fights. He may have military training and experience, but he's a brawler first and foremost.
