Easy and fast read, with some good plotting at times, but verrrry formulaic "Lee Childs". Not one of the best of the series, but enjoyable.... ( )

Only pro about his book is the end. I mean it was truly horrible. Wordy, annoying, lacking in much action or storyline to begin with. I feel like this was just a filler book and I had a lot of trouble finishing it and usually I don't put these books down. Dull, dull, dull. ( )

Not as good as usual-but still Reacher. Not sure if I'll watch tom cruise ruin Reacher. ( )

Yesssss! Jack's back - and Lee Child is back on form with The Wanted Man.
I really couldn't get into the last book, The Affair - it just seemed too clunky, but the latest offering is probably one of my favourite Reacher books to date. Almost good enough for me to forgive the author for casting Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher. I said almost. ( )

Best Reacher yet! So well crafted, it should be used to teach creative writing. Such a great story, can't wait to it on the big screen. ( )

Book description
Four people in a car, hoping to make Chicago by morning. One man driving, eyes on the road. Another man next to him, telling stories that don’t add up. A woman in the back, silent and worried. And next to her, a huge man with a broken nose, hitching a ride east to Virginia.

An hour behind them, a man lies stabbed to death in an old pumping station. He was seen going in with two others, but he never came out. He has been executed, the knife work professional, the killers vanished. Within minutes, the police are notified. Within hours, the FBI descends, laying claim to the victim without ever saying who he was or why he was there.

All Reacher wanted was a ride to Virginia. All he did was stick out his thumb. But he soon discovers he has hitched more than a ride. He has tied himself to a massive conspiracy that makes him a threat—to both sides at once.

In Lee Child’s white-hot thriller, nothing is what it seems, and nobody is telling the truth. As the tension rises, the twists come fast and furious, keeping readers guessing and gasping until the explosive finale.
