This is probably the 6th "Jack Reacher" novel that I have read, and it did not disappoint. I could not put the book down! Lots of interesting facts(?) about the secret service - at least they sound plausible.

The Reacher books have a certain dour helplessness to them. They read like what I imagine a good Western would be like, if I'd ever read a Western. They could almost pass muster for Russian literature, except that they generally have happy endings to at least some of the narrative threads. For all that, they're excellent books, if you're into moderate plot complexity in the thriller genre and don't care overmuch for extremes of character development. Really good light reading.
