This book was something else. I just couldn't put the darn thing down. It's usually always like that with a Jack Reacher book, but there was something about this book that particularly grabbed me. I'm a huge fan of Reacher and love every one of the books in this series. Lee Chid's minimalist style of writing is just perfect for a tense, action-packed thriller. And he has crafted a truly unique and wonderful main character. This book gives us a glimpse of Reacher's previous life as an MP sergeant. He goes back to his home base which he refers to as The 110. And he goes back because of a woman. Major Turner is the woman who currently holds Reacher's old command post. Reacher had had some interaction with her in the last book, so he went back to meet her in person. And when he does, he steps into a labyrinth of lies and deceit that threaten to put him and Susan Turner in lonely cells in Leavenworth. Reacher and Susan both decide to stand up and fight for their freedom. It sends them both across the country in search of particular 14 year old girl who, for some reason, seems to be a key pawn in the setup that has ensared them both. And, of course, nothing is ever easy in a Jack Reacher book, so throughout the whole journey while they try to discover what's behind the frame-up, they're stalked and chased by a particularly unsavoury band of semi-military goons. Lots of tense action and of course lots of Jack Reacher's laconic personality, make this a particularly compelling thriller.
