Former military cop Jack Reacher makes it all the way from snowbound South Dakota to his destination in northeastern Virginia, near Washington, D.C.: the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th MP. The old stone building is the closest thing to a home he ever had. He is there to meet the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner. But instead of seeing her sitting behind the CO's desk, he is hit with two pieces of shocking news, one with criminal consequences, and one too serious to think about.

A good adventure story although it was somewhat long-winded near the end. Not as good and "One Shot" the only other Jack Reacher book I read previously but still a good read.

I'm a big Reacher fan. Though not his best, I'd still give Child a 7 of 10 for this one.

For a guy that is from the UK, Lee Child has certainly mastered American English. I love the guy that reads the books, so droll. Can't wait for the next one. And Lee Child always keeps you on edge with a different perspective to a crime. Jack Reacher is one smart cookie, who never crumbles.

Another wonderful episode in the life of Jack Reacher. Reacher was intrigued with a voice on the phone when he called his old unit, the 110th MP, for help from South Dakota. The CO of the 110th is a woman, Susan Turner, and Reacher decided he wanted to meet her to see if the woman was as intriguing as her voice. But when he reaches his destination in Virginia he finds that Turner isn't there, and the acting CO is not a friendly man towards Reacher at all. In fact, he has some back news for Reacher, one personal and one with possible criminal charges. And when Reacher encounters some threatening men at the motel the army books him into, he begins to ask why. Why the threats, why the charges now after 16 years, and why the personal news after so many years. And why was Susan Turner not in command of her unit, and where was she instead.
As usual Reacher brain is always one step ahead, thinking clearly and looking for motives, and he begins to plot his strategy. From backwoods family threats to a suburban California neighbourhood, the trail Reacher follows doggedly leads him to answers with bigger repercussions than he imagined.
Amazing, as usual.

As for the Jack Reacher series this story only okay. Sure, Reacher gets to bust to a few bad guys, but the story seems overly drawn with a disappointing end. At best, 5 of 10 stars

Good Book - Reacher goes to meet CO of his previous command - they are both arrested - book after 61 hours - excellent - he is charged with a paternity suit as well as murder. Both false - excellent narration and book!
