I've read and enjoyed a lot of Reacher books, but I couldn't even get a fifth of the way through this one before I had to stop. It was just flat out creepy; not tense and exciting like his other books, but way too dark, creepy, and skin-crawling evil. I hated it!

This was a good book, typical Jack Reacher story line. Of course he always manages to get out of the trouble he is in. In this story he has to save an FBI agent that has been kidnapped, and then has to save himself as well. The main part of the story takes place mostly in Montana, although the agent is abducted in Chicago. There is a lot of suspense.

This book read like an action movie. Non-stop heart racing thriller. One of the better Jack Reacher books I’ve read. Highly recommended.

The second Jack Reacher book and this one shows his survival skills and learned military skills after he is kidnapped along with a woman he just happened to help after she dropped her laundry! As usual, the women are smart and the bad guys are horrible people who he has to bring to his Reacher justice with the help of an old friend.

Reacher again wrong place, wrong time: helped FBI agent with laundry: they both were kidnapped by antigovernment "freedom or die" people: always fascinating to witness how Reacher thinks, fun read

...Then the gas ahead of the bullet was heating the oxygen in the air to the point where the air caught fire. There was a brief flash of flame and the bullet burst out through the exact center of it, spearing through the burned air at nineteen hundred miles an hour. A thousandth of a second later, it was a yard away, followed by a cone of gunpowder particles and a puff of soot. Another thousandth of a second later, it was six feet away, and its sound was bravely chasing after it, three times slower...
