This is the fifth book in the "Jack Reacher" series that I have read, and I was NOT disappointed. Every one of the books is a completely separate story; you don't have to read them in order - and although there may be one or two sentences in the entire book that you'll say "oh ya, I remember that from another story" -- it will not at all leave you feeling like you missed something even if this is the first book you've read in the series.
Even though Jack Reacher is the main character, there is excellent character development of the 'supporting players' as well. At the end of every chapter I kept saying "ok I'll just read one more chapter and then put it down". Didn't happen - I just could not put this one down until I was finished with it.
Another good Jack Reacher read by Lee Child. I have read every Jack Reacher novel and think they just keep getting better. The story content involves another unique situation Reacher encounters and brings into play his past and present with ex members of his special investigators team. My only complaint would be that it seems a little drawn out in sections and includes too much mathmatical information. This is a well thought out story line beginning to end and flows smoothly.
Lee Child continues to deliver the high quality suspense novel that he is known for. I read this book as soon as it arrived, and it is going on the shelf so I read it again some day.
Lee Child's books always deliver a "cannot put it down" reading experience!
Very intense Jack Reacher story that involves his former army investigation unit members being killed, one by one. When he's contacted by one of the 4 survivors, they band together to track down the killers. The more they delved into the mysterious deaths, they realized that the orders for the deaths (including their own) were coming from very high up! Good read!
This is my first book read by Lee Child. It moves right along and is keeping my interest. It kind of reminds me of The A Team, an old television show. Anyhow, I will definately read Lee Child books again.
