Reacher can really get into some situations, this time he gets on a tour bus with senior citizens just hitching a ride because it is winter time in the Dakotas and freezing, but he has no idea they would skid and get stranded in a town with biker trouble and he ends up in the middle of it----again---I really like Jack Reacher, he doesn't have a care in the world and travels with only what is on his back but his military training is always a huge help in every situation he gets in.

This novel was pretty lame. I had put this on my wish list before I read the last one so when it arrived, I read it despite my notion that this series is spent. Even the other reviews on this web site mention the way it "slows down" and is "repetitive" yet they still give it good reviews. If I wanted to read a slow, repetitive book I would at least expect skillful prose or insightful commentary. The 61 hours of the title is an amateurish writing trick to try to instill some excitement for the reader. It is like Lee child watched Jack Bauer but didn't get the idea. Would I read the next one? Maybe. I sure would not buy it. I do not even think I would use a PBS credit for it. Sounds harsh, but that is my unvarnished opinion.

Jack Reacher, the man with no address, no luggage, new clothes every few days, no vehicle, and apparently no direction. He manages to find trouble wherever he goes and always solves any problems he encounters. This particular book leads you to believe he may have met his end this time. Find out? Buy the next book.

I am just now discovering Lee Child's books and so far I am loving them I thought this book was very good and suspenseful to the end.

This is a series, but then again, it's not really. The stories follow an ex-Army cop/investigator that has become a drifter trying to stay under the radar. Only one person knows how to contact him in a dire emergency. There are references to people in previous books, but most times it's not cogent to the current story. I love the character and his intelligence and ingenuity in the situations he finds himself in.

I have been reading all of the Reacher novels in chronological order and I thought this was one of the slowest moving of all. Also, I didn't like the abrupt ending that left a few questions open....

But, I am in the middle of the next book and some answers are being presented.

All in all, still a good book worth reading.

Jack Reacher, such an interesting character. I love how this one keeps counting down but I had no idea to what until the end. This is one of the few authors that I can't guess the ending at the beginning, or the middle. Interesting plot, the cold war background is interesting. Who could play Jack Reacher in the movies?
