#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
“The indomitable Reacher burns up the pages.”—USA Today
Four people in a car, hoping to make Chicago by morning. One man driving, another telling stories that don’t add up. A woman in the back, silent and worried. And a hitchhiker with a broken nose. An hour behind them, the FBI descends on an old pumping station where a man was stabbed to death—the knife work professional, the killers nowhere to be seen.
All Jack Reacher wanted was a ride to Virginia. All he did was stick out his thumb. But he soon discovers he has hitched more than a ride. He has tied himself to a massive conspiracy, in which nothing is what it seems, and nobody is telling the truth.
“Furious action . . . [Lee] Child keeps the pacing swift and the surprises rolling. . . . [A] feverishly thrilling series.”—The Miami Herald
“Smart, breathless . . . [with] one of the best female characters in the whole Reacher series.”—The New York Times
“Subtle and nuanced [with] seductive writing and irresistible plot twists.”—Newsweek
Don’t miss Lee Child’s short story “Deep Down” and a sneak peek of his new novel, Never Go Back, in the back of the book.

Very disappointed in this one. My least favorite of the 14 jack reacher books I’ve read. Bad story line. Boring characters. This book made me fall asleep, while the others made me want to stay up reading all night.

Each Jack Reacher book I read the theme stays the same . Jack Reacher serves as judge jury and executioner . Just a little different variation on the story line as well as location . The books are somewhat redundant
A Wanted Man
This is my first read by this author. I've been reading about Jack Reacher from the novelist, Diane Capri. And her books, Jack always is in the background and the person they are seeking. It was nice to see him as a real character and part of the "active real" plot. Someone suspenseful in parts, but not the edge of your seat kind. Very likable characters.
One of the worst books in the Reacher series. I was so unbelievably bored the whole time. There were no good twists and the plot was boring. The ending was very anti climatic. I would suggest skipping this one completely.

As I understand, Cruise bought the rights and cast himself. 6'5, 250lbs, fists like 2X4s and hands like shovels, add all the other character descriptives, and of course it's Tom Cruise. Hint. He was cast in "Magic Mike" ( so would likely have been interested in even an average script). Apparently, directorial debut and staring in action movie opening end of '14, is over 6'3. Guess.
Worst Reacher book
I have read every book in this series and this is by far the worst. Actually, let me re-phrase that, this is the only one I really did not like at all. Others were somewhat weak (61 Hours, Echo Burning), but still had their high points. It almost seems like it was written by someone else, completely different style with no suspense or good idea of who the bad guys even were. Very disappointed.
A Waste of Time
Unbelievable plot. Stuff just happens. Lee Child must have been paid by the word as he drug events on forever. He never develops a feeling for the characters and Reacher is a filthy slob with no direction in life.
A Wanted Man
Lee Child does it again! A super fast read,an excellent plot, smart and capable women and Reacher super hero wow!
This book is like crack
I read this book in 12 hours total including 6 hours of sleep ,no food. ,no shower no leaving my bed. Could not put it away. Kept hoping for a slow section , not to do something else but just to enjoy the book a while longer. Found no break other than sleep depravation ,yeah , a lot like crack.
