I've read many Jack Reacher books and enjoyed all of them. However, this one was, by far, my favorite. Fast-paced, sensitive, suspense-filled to the last words. I loved it.
Another in a line of excellent books by Lee Child.... Would like this one to be made into a movie. Only not with TOM CRUISE playing the lead. Lee you can do better in the leading man selection.
I really enjoyed this one. :)
I have read all but one of Lee Child's Jack Reacher novels. This novel deserves a four to five star rating but I can't give it that rating. Why? Because no one (and I mean no one) would do what Reacher does at the of this novel! Therefore, the novel is not believable to me! I prefer believability. I know, it's a work of fiction. Child's other novel always ended with believability!

I am reading ALL of Lee Child's books. Can't resist. I keep thinking the next can't be as good as the last. Wrong. This one, with the team back together, was excellent. Lee Child is now in my list of top two most favorite authors. With Michael Connelly. Time to buy the next one!
I bought this book on a whim, I wanted something to read and it looked like the best bet out of the slim selection at the grocery store. I read it in one day and went out to buy more. If you like books where the bad guy always gets what is coming to him (and in a most satisfying way) then these are the books for you. I would call these "man books" but I am a woman and I own every one, as soon as one comes out I go and buy it.
If you don't like violence and a little sex then this is not the book for you.
Loved it. Dynamic- fast paced. Didn't want to put it down.
