“As I was reading this latest book, I was trying to understand why I like the Reacher series so much….The Jack Reacher books are all revenge fantasies. By the time the reader encounters the first fight, the reader is already mad…. Reacher doesn't go looking for trouble, but trouble usually finds him.”—San Francisco Chronicle
“Explosive and nearly impossible to put down.”—People

My antennae lifted when, somewhere about installment six or seven, Reacher became politically correct with pet lovers. Don't get me wrong. I own dogs, spend several hundred a year to keep them healthy, take them to the vet; they are warm, loved, etc. However, when an author turns a subplot upside down to make a point about animal cruelty, I get a prickly feeling for what may be further coming. It came with this installment.
Suddenly America should not have been in Iraq and active servicemen on an AWOL track to Canada is healthy and admirable.
I fear that Mr. Child is playing to the Hollywood gallery. We'll see.
But this is by far -- by FAR -- the weakest of the entire series. The reason is because in it, Childs stopped being a storyteller and became a preacher.
Mostly he preaches left-wing politics against the American involvement in Iraq.
But he spares quite a bit of shallow and mean-spirited mockery for Christians and, basically, anyone religious.
I don't know or care if that's "Jack Reacher" the character talking, or Lee Childs, the character's creator. It's off-putting and a waste of my money, and it diverts energy and focus from the fiction. And frankly, the story is the least believable of any in the entire series, and that's saying something. To swallow this whopper, you have to pretend that the U.S. government, post-9/11, has decided to treat its own feedstocks for WMDs with about the same care as it treats left-over pencil shavings.
If you're going to skip one in the series, this would be an excellent choice. I wish I'd skipped it, frankly. The author should withdraw this version and fix it before reissuing it.
