One of Lee Child's best...I have read all of his Jack Reacher books in sequence and didn't realize that the period right after he left the Army had not been covered in his stories. There have only been a couple of books that I remember after a few months but this one has stayed with me probably because of the very well constructed story line. Now I wonder why Jack Reacher has never mentioned Elizabeth before in previous stories. She is one cool woman - with military experience just like Reacher's! There is an added treat about Jack Reacher at age 13 in a short story that follows "The Affair."
