This was terrible. I cant believe his editor didn't catch this—SPOILER ALERT--if the wife and child were really not kidnapped, why were they kept in a separate room? Why did the kid whisper to her mother to be quiet? It's as if the author had one plot in mind and then changed it afterwards. Why didn't Jack Reacher check to see if they were being watched in the Dakota? Why was it SO easy to figure out who the kidnapper was?
