Hide and Seek

Excerpt from Lee Child’s “61 Hours” (Jack Reacher 14)

Hide and seek. Maybe the oldest game in the world. Because of ancient thrills and fears buried deep in the back of every human’s brain. Predator and prey. The irresistible shiver of delight, crouching in the dark, hearing the footsteps pass by. The rush of pleasure doubling back and wrenching open the closet door and discovering the victim. The instant translation of primeval terrors into modern day laughter.
