BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Lee Child's The Hard Way. Six shots. Five dead. One heartland city thrown into a state of terror. But within hours the cops have it solved: a slam-dunk case. Except for one thing. The accused man says: You got the wrong guy. Then he says: Get Reacher for me. And sure enough, from the world he lives in—no phone, no address, no commitments–ex–military investigator Jack Reacher is coming. In Lee Child's astonishing new thriller, Reacher's arrival will change everything—about a case that isn't what it seems, about lives tangled in baffling ways, about a killer who missed one shot–and by doing so give Jack Reacher one shot at the truth.... The gunman worked from a parking structure just thirty yards away–point-blank range for a trained military sniper like James Barr. His victims were in the wrong place at the wrong time. But why does Barr want Reacher at his side? There are good reasons why Reacher is the last person Barr would want to see. But when Reacher hears Barr's own words, he understands. And a slam-dunk case explodes. Soon Reacher is teamed with a young defense lawyer who is working against her D.A. father and dueling with a prosecution team that has an explosive secret of its own. Like most things Reacher has known in life, this case is a complex battlefield. But, as always, in battle, Reacher is at his best. Moving in the shadows, picking his spots, Reacher gets closer and closer to the unseen enemy who is pulling the strings. And for Reacher, the only way to take him down is to know his ruthlessness and respect his cunning–and then match him shot for shot....

The book and the movie are similar but the book has more characters involved and a clearer movement from clue to clue to reach the conclusion. The reason for the four stars is that this is a good book in the genre and the Jack Reacher series although I wouldn't rate it so highly against what are often called serious writers.

A Jack Reacher novel which started off rather well but written like a rush job near the end. Too much explaining - pendantic- in the book rather storytelling. Was disappointed and would not recommend.

fun read. I can see why Tom Cruise (and many other actors) would want to portray this character.

Lots of twists and turns in this one.
With the usual gut-wrenching violence. No one is safe.-----I believe the first Jack Reacher book was "Killing Floor" in 1997.

Jack Reacher is a very bad man, but a good one. Glad he's on the side of the good guys. 7 of 10 stars

I like the Jack Reacher character. Good story, even if it is a stretch of plausibility. 7 of 10 for me.
