I tried to read this and wanted very much to like it. Love the Lee Child books but this was turgid, hard to follow, and just not very interesting. The references to some of the Killing Floor characters and locations were mildly cute but not nearly enough to carry a book. Despite Child's endorsement, the main characters were neurotic and not likable at all. Re-read the real thing if you need your fix or try some of the other series that seem to draft on Reacher-esque characters and plots, just not this one.
