I know what you are thinking because I was thinking it also. Any chance to read more Jack Reacher is worth a try so I bought and read this book. The first point is that Jack Reacher does not appear in this book. Some of the characters are resurrected from "The Killing Floor" and the action takes place about 15 years after the the events in Lee Child's novel. It could have been a clever idea and I wanted to give it three stars just because it was a clever idea. The writing is just plain bad. It is a mess and preposterous at the same time. It did get me to read "The Killing Floor" again and the contrast between Lee Child's skill and Diane Capri's is stark. My advice to you is to skip this book and go back to the Library and check out "The Killing Floor" instead. You won't regret it.
