This is the 11th Jack Reacher I have read, and I have done them out of order. Given those circumstances, I am even surprised at myself for the five start rating, but it really was that good.... ( )

The Hard Way Lee Child
★★★

Number 10 in the Jack Reacher series

This book sees Reacher in New York where he happens to be onsite to witness a money drop in a kidnapping he is soon drawn into to trying to save the kidnap victims while as more time passes this becomes less and less likely.

Reacher begins to suspect that not all is as it seems

Another action packed booked that sees our "hero" once again taking the law into his own hands.

Another outstanding book in the Jack Reacher series by Lee Child. Reacher assists a mercenary group to find 2 victims of kidnap and possibly murder. An interesting twist occurs when Reacher travels to England. I recommend this book. ( )

The Hard Way. Brilliant read. Lee Child has a perfect formula with Jack Reacher. No one really knows where he is. Well I've got news for all you Reacher fans. I definitely saw him walking along Kingsway in London last Tuesday. Obviously, I didn't approach him.. .. .. .. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0440241030, Mass Market Paperback)

In Lee Child’s astonishing new thriller, ex–military cop Reacher sees more than most people would...and because of that, he’s thrust into an explosive situation that’s about to blow up in his face. For the only way to find the truth—and save two innocent lives—is to do it the way Jack Reacher does it best: the hard way….

Jack Reacher was alone, the way he liked it, soaking up the hot, electric New York City night, watching a man cross the street to a parked Mercedes and drive it away. The car contained one million dollars in ransom money. And Edward Lane, the man who paid it, will pay even more to get his family back. Lane runs a highly illegal soldiers-for-hire operation. He will use any amount of money and any tool to find his beautiful wife and child. And then he’ll turn Jack Reacher loose with a vengeance—because Reacher is the best man hunter in the world.

On the trail of a vicious kidnapper, Reacher is learning the chilling secrets of his employer’s past…and of a horrific drama in the heart of a nasty little war. He’s beginning to realize that Edward Lane is hiding something. Something dirty. Something big. But Reacher also knows this: he’s already in way too deep to stop now.
