My favorite Jack Reacher novel to date. Jack finds himself helping a man whose wife has been kidnapped, only to find it is a more complex situation than he believed it to be. Jack is at his finest in this book. The action is great, and it's got a great twist 3/4's of the way in. Once again, Lee Child has show that Jack Reacher can get the job done the way no one else can.
Another great Jack Reacher story involving murder, kidnapping, hot money and even a little romance. As we've learned in the past, Jack can handle it all. Hard to put down.
One of the better Lee Child books, in among others that are very good, but this is one of the best. Twists and adventure, not too much extraneous tangents.
This is one of the best stories I have read in Lee Child's series featuring Jack Reacher. The writing is tight and within a couple of pages it has you hooked. You feel like you are on a wild ride with a guy that doesn't miss a thing. I was immediately caught up in this mystery and enjoyed the fact that when I read it, everything that happened seem logical and not forced to make the story work. The characters were fully developed and the plot was fascinating. Not just a "who dunnit?", but also, why and how. I would have liked the bad guys to suffer more (an indication that Lee Child really had me invested in the story). This was one of those books where I started getting anxious as I realized that I was reaching the end. I was definitely caught up in the tension in the story, but my real anxiety came from knowing that I only had pages left of "The Hard Way".
Fast paced, keeps you guessing. This time Reacher runs into a soldiers-for-hire operation. Lane the leaders wife and stepdaughter have been kidnapped. On the way to finding the victims reacher discoveres a dirty secret. Reacher knowes he should quit, but the life of two innocent people are at stake, he can't.
