You DO NOT MESS with the Special Investigators!
The events of 9/11 changed Jack Reacher’s drifter life in a practical way. In addition to his folding toothbrush, he now needs to carry photo ID to get around. Yet he is still as close to untraceable as a human being in America can get.
So when a member of his old Army unit manages to get a message to him, he knows it has to be deadly serious. The Special Investigators always watched each other’s backs. Now Reacher must put the old unit back together. Someone has killed one of them, and he can’t let that go.

Jack with some of his old team. Not the usual loner this time, but still good, revenge, naive baddies, a little laboured with the constant drives through LA, but overall enjoyable.

Have been a constant Reacher fan but whether it was the almost tired voice given to him by Mr Harding or my personal attitude at the time, I felt that Jack was also tired of being leader of the push. There was certainly plenty of action but not the usual edginess to his character. Maybe there were too many characters to contend with.
Story line made me think, the characters role was interesting and they played their part well
I was constantly thinking and hoping for a good result in the end
The visit to the morgue was one of finality and hope
