Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Jack Reacher, the wandering folk hero of Child's superb line of thrillers (Tripwire, etc.), faces a baffling puzzle in his latest adventure: who is the exceptionally crafty villain murdering women across the country, leaving the naked bodies in their bathtubs (which are filled with army camouflage green paint), escaping the scenes and leaving no trace of evidence? The corpses show no cause of death and Reacher's sole clue is that all the victims thus far were sexually harassed while serving in the military. There's got to be some sort of grand scheme behind the killings, but with no physical evidence, FBI agents bumble around until they finally question Reacher, a former military cop who handled each of the dead women's harassment cases. After Reacher convinces investigators he's innocent, theyAcuriouslyAask him to stay on as a case consultant. Reacher doesn't like the ideaAhe's too much of a lone wolfAbut he has little choice. The feds threaten him and his girlfriend, high-powered Manhattan attorney Jodie Jacob, with all sorts of legal entanglements if he doesn't help. So Reacher joins the FBI team and immediately attacks the feds' approach, which is based solely on profiling. Then he breaks out on his own, pursuing enigmatic theories and hunches that lead him to a showdown with a truly surprising killer in a tiny village outside Portland, Ore. Some of the concluding elements to Child's fourth Reacher outingAhow the killer gains access to the victims' homes, as well as the revelation of the elaborate MOAfall into place with disappointing convenience. Yet the book harbors two elements that separate it from the pack: a brain-teasing puzzle that gets put together piece by fascinating piece, and a central character with Robin Hood-like integrity and an engagingly eccentric approach to life.

From Booklist

Jack Reacher fits the profile of a serial killer being tracked by the FBI. Plus, he's connected to the victims, all of whom filed sexual harassment cases against the military. (Jack was the military policeman who investigated the women's cases.) The Feds don't think Jack did it, but they force him to help them find out who did. The crime scenes are elaborately bizarre yet bereft of clues. Reacher, skeptical of the official profile portraying the killer as a resentful antifeminist, looks for other possible motives. One of them hits pay dirt, sending Jack on a deadly cross-country race with the killer. This fourth Reacher thriller is easily the best. The plot is a masterpiece of misdirection, red herrings, and veiled motives. Reacher himself is an evolving, ever more likable moralist who sometimes gives in to his inner thug. He belongs at the same table with the genre's leading tough-tender sleuths: Parker's Spenser and Burke's Robicheaux among them. Wes Lukowsky
