    When a woman is kidnapped off a Chicago street in broad daylight, Jack Reacher's in the wrong place at the wrong time. He's kidnapped with her. Chained together and racing across America toward an unknown destination, they're at the mercy of a group of men demanding an impossible ransom. Because Reacher's female companion is worth more than he imagines. Now he has to save them both - from the inside out - or die trying....

    This is my fourth Reacher read (I haven't been going in release order) and my least favorite. First, I'm not a big Dick Hill fan, but enjoy his narrative more than McClain's. Second, parts of this story are just plain silly (as pointed out by some other reviews).

    For example, [mild spoiler] Reacher winds up burying a body after removing it from a tree where it was staked (made out to be a grotesque scene). Holly watches. An hour later, body has just been buried and boom, they have sex... right then an there. Really? Seems like Lee was looking for SOME place for them to have sex, and that was the only place he could fit in - next to murder location and fresh grave.

    Other silliness abounds - at one point Reacher has a 9mm Sig shoved in his ear. The boss is meaning to kill him... but instead of SIMPLY pulling the trigger, he hands him over to someone else to do the dirty work because he "has no time." What? Just a setup for Reacher to escape...

    So, disappointing - especially since the other three were rather good.
