Another exciting Lee Child book with Reacher. Great bargain and shipped promptly. Reacher books are hard to put down with the constant excitement.

Another good read
Jack Reacher books are a series. They don't have to be read in order. I enjoy them all and read one about every 4th book and always take one on a trip because I know I will like it.I like Reacher because he is "no nonsense" and he interprets clues like Sherlock Holmes . He doesn't mind killing the bad guys. Also there is always a little sex ( a nice relationship). Just enough to make him human, not crude. He's rather galant. Reacher books are good enjoyable reads.

Jack Reacher solves a tough one
I have read all of the extant Jack Reacher novels, and have to admit I am addicted to the author's articulate writing style filled with fascinating stray facts (like word origins). I don't care that Jack Reacher is in some ways a totally unrealistic human being -- he is still interesting to read about. In this novel, he feels compelled by his gut feeling to help a confused veteran whom he definitely does not want to help on the intellectual level. The plot is rather ingenious, although perhaps not totally realistic. I really enjoyed trying to figure out how what seems like a straightforward crime scene really isn't, and what the title of the book really means.

Another excellent Jack Reacher novel
If you love thrillers and especially if you have read and enjoyed a Lee Child book before, you would enjoy this one. As a fast-moving quick read, it leads you into Jack Reacher's world, where everyone is suspect and everyone can be dangerous and the solution to most problems ultimately comes from a fist, a knife, or a gun. Reacher is the most extreme example of the lone ranger who rides into town, restores peace and justice, and rides off into the sunset. This novel has its plot flaws, but it is a good one.
