This is actually the 7th of the Reacher series. HOWEVER, if you have not started this series yet, I would recommend beginning with this one. This book is a flashback from Jack Reacher's military career and gives us great insight & understanding into who Jack Reacher is and why he has chosen such a "loner" lifestyle.

My husband had already read this book (reading the entire series in order)before I ever got started on the series. He recommended that I read this one first and I am very glad I did.

Speaking of the Reacher series - I find them to be thrilling, exciting and very quick reads. Jack Reacher is exactly the kind of person one would want backing them up in any situation. Sometimes the plot may seem a little contrived - but this is fiction, after all, so no real concerns there. The character development is always good, the dialog is never forced and the plot developments have twists in them that will catch the reader completely off guard!

Be warned ... some of the books are very bloody. The bad guys are very, very bad with no moral scruples at all. If you like gritty, bloody, action books ... this is the series for you.
