In war-torn Syria, a massacre survivor is pulled from beneath a pile of bodies. She is given one instruction: 'find Jed Walker'. Walker is ex-CIA - a man who thought he was long out of the game. Discovering a terror outfit is running people-smuggling from the Middle East and into the United States, he is drawn back in to fight their evil trade. At first Walker thinks these human traffickers are driven purely by profit and greed. But it is much worse than that - and it has ties to the highest levels of power.

I did enjoy the first two books of the Jed Walker series, not as much the third, but this one is truly awful and not worth it. Even for a Jedi Walker thriller, the plot is ludicrous. Skip this one for sure.

In Craig Johnson's latest mystery, Depth of Winter, an international hit man and the head of one of the most vicious drug cartels in Mexico has kidnapped Walt's beloved daughter, Cady, to auction her off to his worst enemies, of which there are many. The American government is of limited help and the Mexican one even less. Walt heads into the 110-degree heat of the Northern Mexican desert alone, one man against an army.

This book does not measure up to the others. The plot feels odd and full of holes.
How is it that Henry would not come on this adventure to Mexico?
Where is Vic?
The only redeeming feature is George Guidall's steady, familiar narration.

The survivors have come to settle in the mountains of Wyoming, fighting day in and day out to establish a home for themselves in a near-empty world. Things are good at first; scavenging is a workable, short-term solution that seems to be providing all they need. But they know that it’s only a matter of time before the food runs out. They need to scramble to find a sustainable solution before the clock stops, and for a little handful of people up in the mountains, the odds don’t seem very favorable.

The first book in this series was ok. Even pretty good. This one doesn’t hold up despite R. C. Bray’s narration. A better post apocalyptic story found in the After it happened series.

With nine straight number one New York Times bestsellers and over 17 million copies in print in the United States alone, it's easy to see why the New York Times has anointed Lee Child as "the best thriller writer of the moment". Now, as fans anxiously await the next full-length Reacher adventure, Child delivers a riveting new short story featuring the world's most beloved vigilante hero, Jack Reacher.

Big fan of Jack Reacher especially the earlier books. This short story does not compare to the best of the novels. I recommend skipping it.
