This is the first Jack Reacher I've read and I have to admit that I'm probably not the target audience.

It's not that I didn't like the story, or Jack himself (OK, not that keen on him), but I just don't like some of the hoops that Reacher is put through, or the way he survives what would generally be unsurvivable situations but I doubt Child'd loosing any sleep over my disinterest :-) ( )

My first Lee Child book. Definitely a page-turner. I want to look into the author's background to see where he could got all the knowledge and lore in this book. The final sequence could easily become a "Call of Duty"-style video game. ( )

Not as good as most of the previous books, but still a good read. Maybe a little confusing in the middle, but nicely summed up in the end. One bad book in the bunch won't stop me from reading the next one. ( )

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.
