#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The gripping new Jack Reacher thriller from Lee Child and Andrew Child
A string of mysterious deaths. A long-classified mission. A young MP with nothing to lose.

1992. All across the United States respectable, upstanding citizens are showing up dead. These deaths could be accidents, and they don’t appear to be connected—until a fatal fall from a high-floor window attracts some unexpected attention.
That attention comes from the secretary of defense. All of a sudden he wants an interagency task force to investigate. And he wants Jack Reacher as the army’s representative. If Reacher gets a result, great. If not, he’s a convenient fall guy.
But office politics isn’t Reacher’s thing. Three questions quickly emerge: Who’s with him, who’s against him, and will the justice he dispenses be the official kind . . . or his own kind?

    Terrible use of the Reacher franchise. Story line in and of itself was not bad. However using Reacher as par of it, the timeframe and the role he was playing are out of sync with what the majority of fans would have expected. Stay with the profile of Reacher .as it has been developed.
  • Disappointing

    By Donbob48
    Having read many books in the series, this in my opinion is the least well written. Plot line is contrived, at time ridiculous. I would advise skipping this one.

  • Is this a Reacher Novel…..

    By seasonedtraveler!
    Boring, predictable, and not a normal Reacher novel…..
  • Worst Reacher Book Yet

    By ;&64?@$78fy
    I’ve enjoyed every Jack Reacher book…until now. Thin plot, lousy characters and an overly complicated ending.
  • Not Lee Child, not Reacher

    It is impossible to express how poorly written this book is. Read a sample, then read a page from any of the first eight in the series. Mysteries should have a rhythm. Usually the fights, discoveries, shocking results are the exclamation points at the end of a paragraph or a chapter. The extraordinary amount of bloodshed is sprayed around with no particular point, and I’m not squeamish. It’s just such a waste. Reacher would never approve.
  • Least enjoyable

    By Fort Lee Flash
    least enjoyable, and most absurd, jack reacher novel ever. almost like they phoned in in. and the chapters whet the 2 fem fatales take down for armed, experienced operatives was most ridiculous

    I am finished with the Reacher series. There is no way that Lee Child wrote this book. It bears no resemblance to the first 14 or so novels Child wrote on his own. It is full of meaningless hard to follow narrative that has nothing to do with the character so carefully developed over many years. I stopped 60 percent through the book.
