User reviews about the book
First let me say that I am a huge Reacher fan. I’ve read and reread every book about the man. But this one was not your average Reacher book. Bad beginning bad middle and even worst ending. The story behind the ring was bland and disappointing. And the ending was very disappointing. Now if you’re reading this and this is your first Jack Reacher book you’re looking to buy, don’t let me discourage you from reading the Reacher series. Just do not start with this one. Bad luck and trouble is my personal fav. But literally start with any other book than this one.
The usual but always good

Not the best Reacher yarn...but also not the worst. Improbable plot, but readable.
Not his best work
Wish he would do more books that have more action. The drama in Wyoming is disappointing to say the least. I’m a huge fan, however his writing comes up short in these desolate environments.
Child is a master story teller. I have read them all and can’t wait for the next one.

Book keeps the reader’s interest and is fast moving.
You think since his books have been made into a couple movies that this one might be the same. It’s not. It’s better. Definitely worth the read. The story has some great twists and turns. Tom Cruise couldn’t pull off being Jack Reacher in this one, ha!
An excellent read. Intriguing and captivating. Enjoyed every chapter.
Never gets going...
Usually I can’t put a Reacher novel down, and I’ve read them all, some even two to three times. But this is the slowest moving one yet. It’s as though Childs Editor begged him for a book, so he cranked out something that didn’t really work and released it anyways. (Yes Editors, you can even edit Lee Child’s!) I must say I kept on reading, hoping it would pick up, but it didn’t until the very end.
The message was Fantastic! Writing about wounded Veterans is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT! We need to know the trauma they suffer on an ongoing basis so that we can possibly help.
