“Child grabs hold with the first page and won't let go until the finish. This is pulse-pounding suspense, and Child hardly misses a beat.”—The Arizona Daily Star
“Good thrillers exist in a class of their own. The point of such a book is total escape and Tripwire fills the bill. A bang-up finale which makes the reader sit back and gasp with both wonder and understanding.”—The Denver Post
“Not only bang-on suspense but an insightful look into how humans work.”—Houston Chronicle
“A stylish thriller as complex and disturbing as its hero.”—Stephen White
“A tightly-drawn and swift thriller that gives new meaning to what a page-turner should be.”—Michael Connelly
“Page for page, there's probably more fisticuffs in a Lee Child thriller than anywhere else.”—Chicago Tribune
“When you put a good villain together with a great hero like Jack Reacher...the result is a thriller good to the last drop. (Child) does a great job of balancing good and evil, and certainly Hobie ranks up there with some of the most memorable villains.”—The Orlando Sentinel

The plot, to me, was secondary, but it was taut, well-conceived (even though the truth was easy enough to figure out early on), and it was a real page turner with a very satisfying ending. I highly recommend this novel, whether you have been an avid Reacher fan, or this is your first foray into the world of Reacher.
If you've never read one, buy this one, it's as good as any of them. I think they're as ubiquitous as the spaghetti western in American culture.
Enjoy the a$$ kicking that come at the end.
In this novel, the tough guy, ex military policeman Reacher, is still a drifter. He has been digging swimming pools by hand in Florida when a private detective comes around looking for him. A few hours later, the investigator is murdered, and Reacher becomes very engaged in trying to learn who sent him and why.
Events in the story range across the United States and Southeast Asia. It involves a soldier who was listed as an MIA during the Vietnam War era. There is a villain whose character is well developed and intriguing. There are some very good twists throughout.
On the downside, there are some loose ends that should have definitely been resolved before the end of the book.
Nevertheless, this is an entertaining story that is definitely worth reading.
