As some others have commented, this book could have been better with a better editor. In addition to some typos that I usually would not expect in a professionally edited book, there seemed to be parts of the story that were forgotten later in the book. Those storyline inconsistencies did detract some. I also felt like there were too many loose ends left in the story. I have not read any of the follow on books to see if this is supposed to be a soap opera sort of series or a set of more self contained books.
These issues aside, I was still entertained but certainly not at the level of Lee Childs writing. For the record I have read all of the Reacher books to date.
