Across the country women are being murdered by a killer who leaves no evidence, no fatal wounds, no signs of struggle, and no clues to a motive. They are, truly, perfect crimes. In fact, the only thing that links the victims is the man they all knew: Jack Reacher.

Content of book was good, but it took everything I had to stick with it. Narrating was horrible. I wish I had read this book instead. I would have enjoyed it much more. You
Not sure if it was the author or the narrator but two of the FBI agents are portrayed as being too stupid to be believable. No one in their position would speak or behave in such a ignorant manner. I still like the series but this one was a miss
Shows amazing and often lacked weakness of Reacher toward women, a role model and a predisposition to be compassionate. A part of reacher I have never noticed. The plot is a bit weak as I guessed the killer very early in the plot development, but nonetheless it was woven well. One of his best works, if nothing more for the side of reacher I never knew existed.
yes I like his style and pace
his relationship with his long love
The FBI ends up being the bad guys in this one, because they abuse their power, and trap Reacher into helping them. Then after he does their work for them, they try to threaten him into some unfair agreements, but our Jack is much smarter! I was smiling big when he out-talked their pushy threats.
Again there are at least three stories going on here, and Reacher is stuck in the middle. All the police/FBI investigation stuff is wonderful; some clues will jump out at you and make you wonder, but others will slip right on by. The narration is great and adds a lot to the enjoyable experience.
Furthermore, Reacher is in a quandary here. He has won the love of his life, but isn't sure about the life he loves. What to do, what to do? He has some decisions to make, and they are toughies. The very things that make him so desirable also make him unattainable. We can probably guess what he does since there are a dozen more books following this one, but either choice leaves us, and him, sad.
This has been a great series so far, and Reacher is a wonderful character. Another winner.
Jack Reacher novels are generally really entertaining. This one however is not recommended. The story is just plain stupid with really absurd plot-twists...
God this book killed me. His emotional connection with the agent proved him unworthy for Jody. But there is still that longing for them to be together. I hope at some point they can figure their lives out. Maybe Jody will get to the point of having too much and needs to travel. Someday ... Until then.
It was a good story. I figured some of it out early so skipped a bit towards the end but still enjoyed it overall. (not easily figured out, I just have a habit of knowing)
What a book! I love Jack Reacher and the books always have twists in the plot, but this one totally surprised me. Thoroughly enjoyed the book. Narration was good. You'll love this one!
