I loved this book, it was Reacher in military mode like the early books, I wish the ‘government’ would sometimes use him in that capacity more often.

Reacher does what he does best. Pick up a lead and follow it to a satisfying conclusion. Lee Child has been and will be my go to author. .

No personel connection . No Reacher history.

I have read every Reacher novel, novella, and short story. In my opinion, this one falls about in the middle of the pack. A good plot with decent supporting characters, but very light on the action.

Analysis (sometimes wrong, but always logical); and action aplenty.

I love, love, love Lee Childs and Jack Reacher. Smart, with humor and tenderness; tough, with decisive and quick moves. Looking forward to the next book.

I like Reacher stories but they are getting a little formulaic by now.

By now - the 22nd book in the series - Jack Reacher seems like an old friend. And like most old friends, he's welcome to visit my home any time he wants. Thankfully, though, he's not the real deal and I don't need to feed him; at 6 feet 5 and not far from 300 pounds, this former West Pointer wouldn't make it much beyond breakfast on what we've got in our fridge. Speaking of West Point, the academy provides the impetus for this story. On his way to nowhere in particular from a short stretch in Hawaii at the end of summer, Reacher ends up on the shores of Lake Superior. In a small town there, he stops at a pawn shop and finds a ladies' West Point class ring from 2005 - with a price tag of 40 bucks. Given all that the owner went through to get that ring, Reacher figures she didn't relinquish it under normal circumstances. So, he makes it his mission to track her down and, if she's still alive, return it. Turns out, though, that she wasn't the one who brought it to the pawn shop; a few physical encounters later (Reacher 1, bad guys 0), all Reacher can get is the name of the man who did. That trail winds its way to Rapid City, Iowa, and a man named Arthur Scorpio - a guy the local cops and feds have been trying, so far unsuccessfully, to put behind bars. He owns a laundromat with a suspicious back room, but despite stakeouts by local law enforcement like Detective Gloria Nakamura, enough evidence to get a search warrant hasn't turned up. As an aside, Scorpio's colorful description is an example of one of the reasons I love these books: He was, "Maybe six feet two. Maybe a hundred and sixty pounds. But only if he had a dollar's worth of pennies in his pocket." Eventually, Reacher manages to learn the name and background of the woman he's searching for. That in turn leads him to a close relative and former FBI guy Terrence Bramall, who's now a private investigator. They end up in remote Wyoming, where of course Reacher and Bramall find themselves on the receiving end of even more physical encounters (hey, that's another reason I love these books). The rest of the story isn't pretty (figuratively and literally), and it also puts a spotlight on issues facing way too many returning U.S. veterans. No doubt that's a big part of the point; the book is dedicated to Purple Heart recipients. That's about all I can say without revealing too much, although as usual, Reacher's considerable survival and intuitive skills get a good workout. The story seems a bit darker than some of the others, but everything gets resolved at the end. That is, perhaps for one thing: Did that person who got tied up in Scorpio's back room ever get out? Inquiring minds would love to know.

Every now and then along comes a Jack Reacher book that is kind of a let down. This book isn't one of them! The story line was excellent, and so were the characters. I had a hard time setting this one down and was sad it was over when I finished it.

Best Reacher book yet!

Have read all of his books. I'm a big fan. I even pre-ordered this one. But I believe he has lost his steam. To much dialogugue. I found myself skimming papes, like 30 at a time just to get thru the book. I gave up on page 175, just too boring. Love the character, but something happened four books ago.

Not quite as exciting some of Reacher's past exploits. Still, it was engagiing and kept this reader wanting to know more.
