Edward Hahn, May 14, 2014 (view all comments by Edward Hahn)
Couldn't put it down. One of Child's best: suspenseful, thrilling, surprising at points, Reacher doing Reacher at his most effective.

Reacher is asked by Secret Service Agent, M.E. Froelich, a woman leading the Vice President's protection detail to assassinate the V.P. Not really, but rather to expose the holes in the protection. Reacher enlists colleague Frances Neagley to help and, of course, in just a few days finds all kinds of weaknesses. It is at that point the actual reason for the concern is revealed.

The story unfolds from there and to say much more would spoil the plot for new readers. Suffice to say that Reacher's brother becomes part of the story as does his relationship with Froelich and Froelich's boss, Stuyvesant.

If you've never read a Reacher book, this would be a good place to start: 400+ pages of excitement.
