Jack Reacher.

The ultimate loner.

An elite ex-military cop who left the service years ago, hes moved from place to place…without family…without possessions…without commitments.

And without fear. Which is good, because trouble—big, violent, complicated trouble—finds Reacher wherever he goes. And when trouble finds him, Reacher does not quit, not once…not ever.

But some unfinished business has now found Reacher. And Reacher is a man who hates unfinished business.

Ten years ago, a key investigation went sour and someone got away with murder. Now a chance encounter brings it all back. Now Reacher sees his one last shot. Some would call it vengeance. Some would call it redemption. Reacher would call it…justice.

This book hooked me right from the beginning, which needless to say is not an easy task. Reacher sees a potential kidnapping taking place and in typical Jack Reacher fashion decides to intervene, which has some completely un-thought of consequences. It's a perfect example of an edge of the seat thriller!!

The best part was that this book keeps you so engaged that it's a surprise to know you've reached the last page. The "Bad Guys" present a formidable challenge to Reacher. He doesn't seem quite so invincible in this book, which only makes the story better. Must read...

This has the best opening chapter of any thriller I've ever read -- the only one that gives it a run for its money is the first chapter of Elmore Leonard's "Freaky Deaky." The second chapter is just as good. After the third chapter, I went to the bookstore and bought all of Lee Child's other books. I promise, I've never bought all of an author's books at one time before, I've never met Lee Child or anyone who works for him, and no one is paying me to say this. This book is that good. It's violent, all right -- you won't like it if you can't stomach a lot of violence. (In fact, it's better if you like some well-placed violence.) But the plot is several cuts above the contrived plots of a lot of thrillers, the surprises make sense even while they shock your socks off, and the real heart of the book is Jack Reacher, who you won't soon forget. This is the real deal.
