Reacher is hitchhiking and he only wanted to get to Virginia. He gets a ride, but then soon realizes that things aren't what they seem. Reacher was only picked up as a decoy to help get people through a couple of police check points. As always, Reacher is nobody's pawn, and wants to get to the bottom of things, and make the bad guys pay with the justice only Reacher can dish out.
There are so many things wrong with this clunker:
1) Things are repetitive. Here is an example. Reacher makes a 9-1-1 call. The 9-1-1 goes through a "chain of command" four or five times, and we get to hear the call each time. Then when the right person gets the call, we hear it again, then the person goes through it sentence by sentence and analyzes each line. It's painful to read over and over and over. Another character had a conversation with Reacher, and plays it over and over, line by line, picking it apart, word by word. It's brutal.
2) So many long and pointless scenes That are drawn out. As the reader, we're treated to an entire chapter of the following: a) Someone looking for a car. b) Someone walking up a driveway. Mind you, those aren't in the same chapter, *each* of them is a long and tedious chapter. It is so pointless, boring, and a waste of time.
3)Too much time in the car. Reacher and his travel mates spend way, way, way to much time in the car. It's tedious and boring.Read more ›
Reacher is in Nebraska looking to get to Virginia. So he does what he always does - he sticks out his thumb. He gets picked up by two men and a woman, all dressed alike. The journey begins... and the journey is boring, I felt like the proverbial child, 'are we there yet?' Too much straight Midwestern road, not enough plot.
Child has always written Reacher as a cerebral man but the 'one step ahead of the bad guys' thinking becomes too convenient - he can't always be right. The bad guys are cliches and the good guys are one dimensional. The book ends abruptly without a satisfying conclusion.
It must be difficult to continually write a series about a man without home or hearth and no connection to anyone. Maybe Child is out of ideas - he should have skipped this one.
The first half of the book was in the car with no action. No planning. No anything. The 2nd quarter was confusing. The last 1/8th was exciting. The final page told us very briefly what the plot was all about.
The characters were not developed, confusion was rampant, no substance. Ending bad. This was not a Lee Child, Reacher book, couldn't be. Boring!
Lee you disappointed me. Again, you will disappoint me with wimp Cruse playing Reacher in "Kill Shot". Hopefully you will write a better novel next time.
I rate this book a 1 because there was some action and a plot, finally.

This book was interesting,like all Jack Reacher stories. Lots of action, lots of Gore. I liked it quite a lotPublished 3 days ago by Teresa Wheeler
Being an engineer, I thought enjoy Reacher's knowledge of numbers and numerical facts. As always the author spins a tale where the bad guys motives are impossible to anticipate.Published 8 days ago by Richard Collins
