I have read and enjoyed all of the previous Reacher novels but this one for some reason just seemed tedious. I think there was much too much detail given about surroundings, procedures, etc. and not enough action! Also, Reacher was working with a team from other countries and the CIA to try to stop a sniper from reeking havoc at the G8 conference in London rather than being on his own. The sniper had an old grudge against Reacher so he was called in to try to catch him for a second time. Like I said, along the way there was just too much detail and tedium. Things did pick up towards the end but overall just a very mild recommendation. Hopefully, the next one will be better.
