I like the Reacher books though I thought the part in the Pentagon wasn't very believable.

On to the next book from the author.

More on the history of Reacher and how he came to be the wanderer. Good story up to the finale when it sort of went off the tracks (sic). Innovative way to cover up a murder but never involve others in your crime-first rule of a survivor.

Another enjoyable Jack Reacher book!
Lee Child's Reacher books make me want make me keen to read his autobiography. Where did he collect all of his military background knowledge, his knowledge of weapons and of brawling techniques? How can a Brit write so confidently about the US and an american character?

As always, a fantastic book from Lee Child in the Jack Reacher series. This story grabbed me from the second page and wouldn't let me go. Must read!

Okay already....After reading this I've decided I'll join the fanclub. Reacher really is, without doubt, a total heart throb badass.

The story of how Jack Reacher came to be a derelict ex-Army guy beleaguered by his past and constantly getting pulled back into it for another round of mayhem. A fun, fast moving read with all the usual suspects doing all the usual things a person finds in a Lee Child / Jack Reacher novel.

This book is standard "Reacher" stuff - with one twist. All the books I've read are after Reacher is "retired" from the Military Police of the army. In this one he still has rank. It is as exciting as one can expect and the conclusion is satisfying.
I read this as an eBook and it had a bonus - a short story called "Second Son," which was great as it talked of Jack Reacher as a teenager.

This was another great read. Love the series! Lee child is amazing, fast paced, great dialogue, good cast, and believable characters! But Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher. OMG! Stop the madness! Think I will stick with the books!

Love these Reacher prequels-it's interesting to see what he was like during his time in the army, though I have to wonder how on earth he managed to last in the army as long as he did!

First person form, Jack Reacher doing his dynamic style. Lee Child is one of the most amazing story tellers there has ever been.

Good start but fizzles at the end with rediculous plot.
