This Jack Reacher is a total stranger. Yes he still carries his toothbrush and wanders aimlessly, rootless but always ready to fight for the little guy. But this book seemingly was gutted by some left-leaning liberal editor who just couldn't stand the idea of "toxic masculinity" or "gun violence" or the outside chance of offending his/her colleagues. Thus we have Jack Reacher, gutted and distilled and offensive to absolutely no one--except his fans. Same thing happened to the Leo Waterman series. I guess this is what we have to look forward to now. Not even Reacher can save us from our fearful, mob-ruled, follow-like-sheep society. Just so dang sad. Bye bye Jack.
