I am just now discovering Lee Child's books and so far I am loving them I thought this book was very good and suspenseful to the end.

Very good book. Keep you in suspense all the way through. Makes you want to hurry to get to the end but when you get there you still want more. I can hardly wait for Book #15.

I like it to a point. I found it to be very slow moving and too much info. It takes most of the book to get to the exciting part. Too long. Confusing in places. I usually love the Reacher books, but this was not my favorite. I knew who the bad guy was way before he was exposed.

What a disappointment this book was. Reacher is focused on a certain goal almost from the beginning of the book, and takes great care to stay focused on it and be able to respond when "the time comes" (as he does in all his books). Then, two thirds through the book he willingly allows himself to forget about his goal, and is unable to respond when the time arrives. No good plot reason---I guess Child just thought it was time to move the storyline along. Child forces us to accept Reacher's very un-Reacher-like behavior at a pivotal point in the story. This clumsy plot twist also makes it pretty obvious who the hidden bad guy is as well. Then you have to endure an abrupt and unsatisfying ending that is either worse than even I fear or a blatant teaser for the next book. I've read 5 or 6 Reacher stories---this one just isn't up to par.

One of the better Reacher stories. He falls into a Northern town in the dead of winter and helps solve murder and mayhem. Seems like he dies at the end, but that can't be....

This is a series, but then again, it's not really. The stories follow an ex-Army cop/investigator that has become a drifter trying to stay under the radar. Only one person knows how to contact him in a dire emergency. There are references to people in previous books, but most times it's not cogent to the current story. I love the character and his intelligence and ingenuity in the situations he finds himself in.

I have been reading all of the Reacher novels in chronological order and I thought this was one of the slowest moving of all. Also, I didn't like the abrupt ending that left a few questions open....

But, I am in the middle of the next book and some answers are being presented.

All in all, still a good book worth reading.
