She tells him a terrifying story about the brutal death of a man they both served with. Soon Reacher is reuniting with the survivors of his old team, scrambling to raise the living, bury the dead, and connect the dots in a mystery that is growing darker by the day.In a world of bad luck and trouble, when someone targets Jack Reacher and his team, they'd better be ready for what comes right back at them.


What the Critics Say

"Winning." (Publishers Weekly) "Highly recommended." (Library Journal)
"The action is intense, the pace unrelenting, and the violence unforgiving. Child remains the reigning master at combining breakneck yet brilliantly constructed plotting with characters who continually surprise us with their depth." (Booklist)

Don't get Reacher mad

This is my 12th listen in the Reacher series and I think Reacher was more testy in this one than in all the previous installments. He took things very personally and, as usual, took no prisoners. I particularly enjoyed the characterization of the three colleagues that joined with him in this adventure. What can I say? Standard Reacher fare that will entertain his fans.

Kept My Interest

This is an excellent book for this genre. It is well-written and the characters are well rounded and vivid. The plot is interesting and I didn't get bored at all - even the descriptive segments were interesting. A few spots got a bit predictable but if you don't mind that (which I don't), it holds enough plot twists and turns to keep your interest. The reader did a good job, however he needs to work on his female characters. This is right up there with the best of Michael Connelly, only maybe a bit edgier. His "Reacher" character is definitely out there and a force to be reconned with!
