Late at night in a New York cafe, army-cop-turned-drifter Jack Reacher orders coffee in a cup made of foam, not china, so that he can move on at a moment's notice. He owns nothing, carries less, has never encountered a female colleague he can't bed, or a case he can't solve.

He owns nothing, carries less, has never encountered a female colleague he can't bed, or a case he can't solve.

Until, what started on a busy New York street explodes three thousand miles away in the sleepy English countryside with Reacher striding alone in the shadows, armed and dangerous, and invincible.Read Less
Good. Ex-Library Book-will contain Library Markings. Book shows minor use. Cover and Binding have minimal wear and the pages have only minimal creases. A tradition of southern quality and service. All books guaranteed at the Atlanta Book Company.
I was completely satisfied with their service. I repeat, I was completely satisfied.

These books are addicting!
The book is intense, Reacher is exceedingly logical, often describing his conclusions and the path to them. Oh and did I say he can win any battle with 4 or fewer opponents since he is 6 foot 6 and had 13 years in the military police -- you know capturing special forces or other combat veterans when they go wrong (seldom in my view), but that's the thesis. I think I have bought all of the series so far.

Couldn't be easier
I'd be far richer if I had found something like this forty years ago.

A bit disappointing
This one seemed a bit far-fetched to me. The trip to England was just a little much.

Another great book by Lee Child. The story line is very great reading
