Nothing to Lose Lee Child Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Lee Child’s The Affair.
Two lonely towns in Colorado: Hope and Despair. Between them, twelve miles of empty road. Jack Reacher never turns back. It's not in his nature. All he wants is a cup of coffee. What he gets is big trouble. So in Lee Child’s electrifying new novel, Reacher—a man with no fear, no illusions, and nothing to lose—goes to war against a town that not only wants him gone, it wants him dead.
It wasn’t the welcome Reacher expected. He was just passing through, minding his own business. But within minutes of his arrival a deputy is in the hospital and Reacher is back in Hope, setting up a base of operations against Despair, where a huge, seething walled-off industrial site does something nobody is supposed to see . . . where a small plane takes off every night and returns seven hours later . . . where a garrison of well-trained and well-armed military cops—the kind of soldiers Reacher once commanded—waits and watches . . . where above all two young men have disappeared and two frightened young women wait and hope for their return.
Joining forces with a beautiful cop who runs Hope with a cool hand, Reacher goes up against Despair—against the deputies who try to break him and the rich man who tries to scare him—and starts to crack open the secrets, starts to expose the terrifying connection to a distant war that’s killing Americans by the thousand.
Now, between a town and the man who owns it, between Reacher and his conscience, something has to give. And Reacher never gives an inch.

User reviews about this book
Again he travels to a town where his special talents are needed.
Excellent plot and great heri
Child takes us on a thrilling rollercoaster ride again. His attention to detail is mindboggling, perhaps too much so. Do we really need to know how many blocks Reacher took from a motel to a fiber before turning in another direction, then walking more blocks? Such specificity is stupefying and detracts from the pace of an enticing tale.
Nothing to close
A very good book and story, but overtly wordy. Way to descriptive.
Nothing to lose
Except your time! Not compelling and too anti Christianity. Time for a new series. Steakguy62

Don’t start here
I started with the first book in the Jack Reacher series, and I’m about to read the next, #12. They are thrilling, edged-of-your seat stories that will have you hooked! Unless you start with this book. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not horrible, but I would not have purchase 11 other books if I had started with this...
Terrible read in this series.

Have read 10-12 of Child's books featuring Reacher. This doesn't measure up to any of the others. Boring, meaningless details. Read about 50% of the book and quit. Very rare for me. LWS
Terrible. Starts ok but it's all downhill. Worst part is using an 'end times preacher' as the vehicle to mischaracterize Christians, the bible, and the book of Revelation.
Loved the previous stories, but this one not so much. I could actually hear Reacher gagging on the overly political dialogue Child was forcing him to spout. It seemed so inconsistent with everything we've seen from him in the past. Beyond this, the plot was just silly and meandering as if it was being made up on the fly. If this was a sign of things to come, I think I'll look for a new series to get hooked on.
