I've read all previous 25 Reacher books, and all except one (in my opinion) were great. This one (#26) was just okay. It was co-written by Lee and his brother Andrew, who apparently is going to take over the Reacher stories. I found this book a bit tedious to read. Some paragraphs had way too much detail of basically unnecessary babbling. And the climax / resolution to the story was convoluted at best. I had to read some parts two or three times to understand why something being described was the answer to the big mystery. Story was told in the first person by Reacher himself.
