Who is the bad guy?
Reviewed in the United States on December 23, 2016
I have never been disappointed in any of the Jack Reacher series. This one is no exception. I've read it twice (I had run out of new material) and found it as intriguing the second time around.
Jack is drawn into a kidnapping by simply sitting and drinking a cup of espresso while enjoying the sounds of New York. He sees someone leave a car unattended in front of a fire hydrant, sees another man take the car and leave. Not so mysterious, right? But wait, this act leads to some very distinctly mysterious happenings, A mercenary, Edward Lane, wants to hire him to find his wife, Kate, and stepdaughter, Jade, who have been kidnapped. Several million dollars later, which Lane pays without blinking an eye, Reacher feels something else is going on. Something is "off."
The journey takes him and his new temporary partner, Pauling, an ex-FBI agent-turned-PI down a twisted path of deceit, torture, and death. Almost too late, Jack realizes what is really going on and---well, read it. You won't be disappointed.
