Lee Child has always been an auto-buy for me, but I couldn't even finish this book. When I realized I was not enjoying the read, but felt as if I were taking a dose of bad-tasting medicine, I quit. Sorry, Lee - I love you, but this was not even close to the quality writing you usually produce.
The first inkling of discomfort arose when Reacher, who was a passenger in a car with three strangers who'd picked him up hitch-hiking, was taking his turn driving and the female passenger began silently communicating with him via weird blinking signals. Not Morse code blinks, but some way-out alphabetical left-right first-last stupid confounded, impossible for anyone to comprehend blinks.
The female passenger was a single-mother cocktail waitress who'd been abducted when car-jacked by the two male passengers. Wait, no - she was an undercover FBI agent. Huh? Oh, and one of the male passengers was an undercover FBI agent. And no one was doing anything that made any sense or was remotely in the realm of realistic.
The confusion and not-plot continue: a sheriff who died of a heart attack. a little girl that was kidnapped, but wait, no, she wasn't - she was reunited with her mother, the non-waitress undercover FBI agent, and they were being held in a fenced enclosure, along with Reacher, another female FBI agent who didn't know anything either, and a missing witness to a murder, and on-and-on nothingness.
If you're now confused, you can understand my feeling while trying to read this poor example of a Reacher novel. I tried to finish this novel - I'd read a few painful paragraphs and set it aside. Go back to it another day and tried again. It just wasn't worth it.
Again, Lee Child writes with such thought; in other words Reacher is thinking all the time and he works it all out so much in his mind; and we think with him.
This is truly the main pleasure of Lee Child's Reacher books. He writes so cleverly that he leads one to believe that his Reacher books are chock block full of action. In fact that there is actually a lot less action than you think.
I read this book with all the enjoyment I usually experience with his books. Towards the end you will find some moments that might make you laugh, they did so with me anyway. Such amusing irony.
I have read a swag of classic literature; British, French, Russian and American. I have to state my belief that Lee Child is actually an exceedingly 'good' writer. Because how many writers; basically about one story, one character; have you come across that are still great after so many books?
I'm so sorry that it was number 17 and I have only three or four left. I will miss them.
Always intriguing, Reacher again outguesses his enemies and saves America from terrorists. In this novel Reacher is a hitch hiker who gets involved with FBI, CIA, as well as terrorists. Can he tell the difference?

On the not so good side, it got a little slow and stretched out in the middle, and the ending was confusing, to say the least.Read more
