Wow! so many people wanting this book, get it from the library and don't spend money for it. I'm not saying don't read it but get it from the library.

It is better than the last 2 Reacher books by far but yet it is still not the best.

It is almost 400 pages and that is way too long, most of the pages are taken up with overlong descriptions that aren't necessary and overlong descriptions of fighting whether it is with fists, guns, or whatever you can think of, and the moving all over the place, on the plane to go here or there, or get in the car and travel travel travel then we end up back where we started.

By half way into the book you still don't have one single clue as to what is going on and by 3/4 way into the book you still don't know what is going on, if you are not a computer person (which I just get by) you won't understand a lot of it when it hits the halfway point because then it starts getting into the 'deep' part of the internet and that I couldn't even begin to understand--oh well--so this is just a heads up for that part, and the story took a turn I didn't expect at all.

I did like the fact that the old Reacher seemed to be back, landing in the middle of something he shouldn't have but there are parts that just got old fast.
