Reacher's sympathetic, but he's not crazy. Nonetheless, he allows himself to be drawn into beautiful Carmen Greer's orbit, which ought to teach a guy not to hitchhike. Agreeing to protect her from the husband who's about to be released from jail and, according to Carmen, who's about to pay her back for tipping off the authorities to the tax fraud that landed him in prison, Reacher moves into the bunkhouse of the Echo, Texas, ranch that's owned by the bigoted, bitter, but powerful Greer family, which despises Carmen because she's Mexican and tolerates her only because she's Sloop Greer's wife and the mother of his child. The expected bloodshed ensues, but it's Sloop, not Carmen, who ends up with a bullet in his head. Reacher's convinced that Carmen acted in self-defense, even after other evidence comes to light that suggests there's more--and less--to her unhappy tale than even her own lawyer believes. This is the best Jack Reacher yet, smart, stylish, and convincing. If it's your first encounter with Child's work, be sure to check out his backlist--Running Blind, Tripwire, etc. --Jane Adams --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Not very plausible. Reacher gets away with a lot of stuff that would put you in jail and is able to walk away with no question.Published 1 day ago by Curtis W Jarva
I really like the Jack Reacher novels. He is bigger than life, but kind. But not to kind to get the job done.Published 1 day ago by migafinn
Starting to get really predictable. The formula appears established, and the long slow grind of ever sparser character development begins.Published 2 days ago by Steven W. Zachem
I enjoyed the book and how it wraps up. Very slow for the first half of the book but picks up and is all Reacher in the end. Good read all in all.Published 3 days ago by jerry gill jr
