This was the first book I read by Child. Not too bad. A lot of action. Some swerves. Jack Reacher is not your conventional hero. He travels by bus. He eats at Denny's and dresses like a street person. But boy can he fight and handle a gun. He's joined by members of his old group in battling arms dealers and international terrorists.
There's even a love interest for Jack. Thankfully it's brief. Let the violence begin.
The villian(s) get their comeuppance in the end and how!
This is a very good beach book for guys.
Bob Atchick, a friend of mine, also recently read and enjoyed the book. Bob is an aficionado of mystery and spy stories.
