What can I say, this Reacher book just didn't do it for me. I am a big fan of Lee Child and his Jack Reacher series. This book IMO has a lot of similarities to his first book, The Killing Floor (which I liked immensely) but it took a long time to get to the meat of this mystery. I thought Mr. Child was really reaching (pardon the pun) to come up with a plot for Mr. Reacher! Has Reacher reached his potential? I don't think so but maybe Mr. Child needs to take a vacation and recharge, although I did like his perspective on Jack's and the author's view on the women in Reacher's life in the back of the book. That in itself was worth reading. It is always interesting to see how an author perceives a long running character -- his likes and dislikes, etc. and what we might expect in the future. Will I continue to read the Reacher books, most definitely. Every author has a bummer book and I credit this one to Mr. Child.
