    In a novel that slams through one hairpin surprise after another, Lee Child unleashes a thriller that spans three decades and gnaws at the heart of America...and for Jack Reacher, a man who trusts no one and likes it that way, it's a mystery with only one answer the kind that comes when you finally get face-to-face and look your worst enemy in the eye.

    Overall

    I gave this book four stars because I love the Reacher series and Lee Child and I'm glad there's another book. However . . . this novel is badly in need of editing. There are numerous interminable conversations that recap information we already know. I actually carried on conversations with other people while listening to parts of this book with one earbud in, just waiting for something to happen.

    As usual, Reacher kicks the bad-guys around, and there are a couple of satisfying twists, and plenty of national and international intrigue. The evildoer is very evil, the stakes very high, and the conclusion ties up loose ends. But I get the sense that Child was just going through the motions, trying to keep a best-selling character alive and fill up a few hundred pages, without really feeling it. Usually I'm at the edge of my seat with the Reacher books. This time, I could have used a fast-forward function.

    If you're new to Child and Reacher, pick one of the earlier books, like "The Killing Floor", to start with.
