#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
 
“High-powered, intricately wrought suspense.”—Janet Maslin, The New York Times
 
“Hold on tight. . . . This novel will give you whiplash as you rabidly turn pages. . . . May be [Lee Child’s] best.”—USA Today
 
New York City. Two in the morning. A subway car heading uptown. Jack Reacher, plus five other passengers. Four are okay. The fifth isn’t. And if you think Reacher isn’t going to get involved . . . then you don’t know Jack.
 
Susan Mark, the fifth passenger, had a big secret, and her plain little life was being watched in Washington, and California, and Afghanistan—by dozens of people with one thing in common: They’re all lying to Reacher. A little. A lot. Or just enough to get him killed. A race has begun through the streets of Manhattan, a maze crowded with violent, skilled soldiers on all sides of a shadow war. For Jack Reacher, a man who trusts no one and likes it that way, the finish line comes when you finally get face-to-face and look your worst enemy in the eye.
“Propulsive . . . [Child is] an expert at ratcheting up tension.”—Los Angeles Times
 
“A top-notch thriller.”—Booklist (starred review)
 
“Edgy . . . thoroughly engrossing.”—The Miami Herald
Publisher: Random House Publishing Group

Let's face it: Child can write short chapters or novella length chapters without sacrificing suspense; he can write in the third person or in the first person with equal narrative aplomb; and he can deal with ugly and despicable human atrocities without glorifying or sugar-coating them. In other words, he knows how to wear his big-boy pants with pizazz.

Have read most Jack Reacher novels and enjoyed them all. Love that Lee Child doesn't feel the need to expand his novels with extra words of description. Many novels I have read use so much description they lose me after a few chapters. Looking forward to the next adventure with Jack Reacher.

Another great Reacher story. In this one, set in New York, between Central Park and Madison Square Park, Reacher uses subways and walks in order to get around. Thus expect lots of description and directions about getting from point A to point B. If one was familiar with the city, these paragraphs would probably add to the visual impact of the story. In "Gone Tomorrow", Reacher battles alone against a crew of terrorists, including 2 females, and, of course, is victorious, but not without getting some of the stuff he has dished out. Timely topic of politician involvement where one's friends can become one's enemies. One of the better Reacher novels.

Another episode in the like of Jack Reacher who has grown to be one of my favorite fictional characters. Another fine effort by Lee Child. 8 of 10 for me.
