    • I thought this was an excellent addition to the series. The parallel plots, of a young Canadian couple whose car is on its last legs, and Reacher, who checking out his father's home town, were good. The merge was a little clunky, but acceptable. The characters were (mostly) well written and I would love to see some of them again in future books. There weren't any unrealistic "oh, come on!" moments that I have come across in some of the others in the series. This certainly kept my interest and I will be recommending it to several friends.
    • I'm a casual Reacher fan. I've seen the movies, and read at least six or seven of the books. One thing I like about Lee Child is that for the most part his books can stand on their own. Sure, there are characters from previous books, but they are always brought in very smoothly. As is typical for Child, this book has a snappy pace, a good backstory and a mystery at the center of the action. Don't hesitate to check this one out, I'm glad I did and I ended up reading it in two days.
    • Another good read from the master of this kind of work. His strength, in part, is writing in a way that makes me want to read more. And often read more when I’ve other things to do. Compelling?Interesting characters, a little skimpy development and while I like the practical killing (reminds me of Hawk in the Sprenser series) but felt a little like “well this book is long enough “
    • Terse writing. Twisty plot, Dark, dark, dark.
    • Lee Child as always knocks it out of the park. Jack Reacher is a great character. Exactly what I want to be when I grow up. Please keep this guy alive and moving where and when he wants to be. Thanks Mr. Child.
