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.… (more)

A great read. Well plotted with a welcome absence of excruciatingly boring detail of roads, rooms and kit in the majority of the book. Unfortunately these rear up in the final shoot out act but the mot enjoyable in the series so far. ( )

Another great Jack Reacher story. I particularly liked the trick Lee Child used, "Reacher - alone in the dark." "Reacher, coming back." A great story, full of great characters and suspense. Such detailed descriptions. Lee Child is a master. ( )

I'd damn it with faint praise, but *shrugs* I enjoyed it. We'll just pretend common sense isn't a thing. ( )
