Jack Reacher. The ultimate loner. An elite ex-military cop who left the service years ago, he's moved from place to place-without family-without possessions-without commitments. And without fear. Which is good, because trouble-big, violent, complicated trouble-finds Reacher wherever he goes. And when trouble finds him, Reacher does not quit, not once-not ever. But some unfinished business has now found Reacher. And Reacher is a man who hates unfinished business. Ten years ago, a key investigation went sour and someone got away with murder. Now a chance encounter brings it all back. Now Reacher sees his one last shot. Some would call it vengeance. Some would call it redemption. Reacher would call it-justice. Jack Reacher takes an undercover assignment to investigate the disappearance of a federal agent from the home of a notorious drug dealer, but Reacher soon discovers that the dealer has ties to a man from Reacher's own past.… (mais)

I continue to be astonished—but no longer surprised—by how good the Jack Reacher books are! This one, like the others, is taut, gripping, intense, and a hell of a page-turner. I ended up staying up far too late to finish the second half of this book all in one go, as I found it by that point impossible to put down.

It's been about a year since I read a Reacher book, so it may be that my memory is faulty. But a couple things surprised me because they at least seemed different from the others I've read. One is the heavy use of flashbacks, in which Reacher doles out pieces of the story that connects him to a person he meets by chance in the street, setting in motion all the events of the present. We expect, based on Reacher's reaction to that meeting, that the flashback story doesn't end well, and as we watch the present-day story unfold with lots of parallels, anticipation of that ending just ramps up the tension.

Another surprise to me was just how violent Reacher is. He kills a lot of people, deliberately and with prejudice, barehanded, with knives, and with guns. Some of them are clearly evil, others criminals who've escaped justice, but a few seem like nothing more than hired goons who went to work for the wrong guy, and could just as easily have been disarmed and knocked out. I think there's only one instance here of Reacher leaving someone alive when getting them out of his way. Is that how he acts in the other books, or is it caused here by the events in Reacher's past that make this a very personal story for him? I guess I'll find out when I read the next one.

One thing that did not surprise me, but which I'll mention because it recently came up in conversation with a friend, is Reacher's fallibility. There is apparently a thread of Internet criticism of the Reacher movies that complains that the movie character is nothing like the book, because (among other things) Reacher in the books is "perfect", and never makes mistakes. People with that claim must have read different books than I have (there are a lot in the series, after all), because Reacher definitely screws up. In this one, Reacher mentions "questions I wish I'd answered differently", and "Mistakes coming back to haunt me" starts to sound like a mantra in the second half of the book. What Reacher is, though—and this is a big part of the series's appeal to me—is competent. He's good at what he does, knows what he's not good at, and doesn't make the sort of nonsensical mistakes that only occur in order to generate plot in bad thrillers. Even the main bad guys are competent, with their main flaw tending to be underestimating Reacher. These books are great to dive into when you are tired of idiots.

To sum up, this isn't the kind of book I expect to ever read again, but man it was a good one to read, and I'm glad I did. ( )

Best so far. Still fluff, but I like this kind of fluff. ( )

Perhaps the introductory Reacher novel. Doesn't present him as the itinerant of the contemporary novels. It involves Reachers search for vengeance. In the middle of that he gets involved in investigation of a smuggling operation. ( )
