Good story esp. a window into Reachers time as an MP. But compared to other novels, it fell flat. The voice narration is always awesome! Really captures the mood and pace.
I like the mystery, the suspense and the fight scenes. But I was hoping for a bigger explosive finish in the end. Instead it ended with a quiet finish and had Reacher just walking away again.
Listening to good books from around the world, in the comfort of home....
I was amazed when Hollywood cast a 5'6" actor to play a 6'5" character...I guess they never thought anyone would notice.
Quite a story of misdirection, our hero Jack Reacher,and his female C.O. Turner are being deceptively being accuse of multiple crimes of treason, assault, and adultery, so the real bad guys can cover their gun running, and drug business.
In this story Reacher once again has a brief affair,but this time it is with his superior officer. Once again it is just sex no long lingering love affair. Some humor is injected into those moments.
Throughout the story Reacher, and Turner are playing Watson and Holmes, and the good guys win once again.
I for one will be interested to see what Hollywood will sift out of the book.and put up on the screen.
We have heard it before, we will hear it again. It is a delight to spend time around the campfire listening to Jack Reacher's war stories.
It is kinda cheesy that from South Dakota to Nebraska to Iowa to Virginia Jack keeps going from one problem to another right away. All while trying to get to VA to meet a woman he met only by phone way back in South Dakota (enough with the sex already). If I were Jack I WOULD settle down just to stay out of trouble. That said.....it was a good story. It took longer than I like to set up but by the time it ends it felt like it was too soon. It had me wishing there was just a little more.
