I'm not good at identifying why I like or dislike a book but I do know that if you're a Reacher fan, you will not be disappointed with his latest adventure. I can say that as with all of the books in the series, this is great as an independent read as well as part of the series. I have read all of the books now and find each book, even out of order, stands on its own while revealing more about Reacher's background and why he is who he is. With every book our hero has an even richer character.
I'm not good at reviewing, all I know is how I felt about a book. I have to leave some comment though, I loved Skin Game that much. Anyone who is a fan of the series, or even has enjoyed some of the series, will not be disappointed. James Marsters gave his usual stellar performance and Butcher gave him exceptional material to work with. I don't have to think long to accurately state that in my opinion, this is the best book in the series to date.

I loved what Ms Fortgang brought to the characters. Because of her sweet, slow, soft intonation, the Spider, a brutal assassin, never comes across as ''the bad guy''.
Even before hearing her back story she is the one tugging our heart strings. Each character is easily recognizable which is always a determining factor in my enjoyment. I recently listened to a book in which this wasn't so and I found just how important it is, I was in a constant state of confusion because I didn't know who was saying what. It will never be a problem with Fortgang as a narrator
I recommend this audio book to anyone interested in urban fantasy, in fact I suggest it be the next book you listen to.
