I've read all the Jack Reacher books. The last few have been sub par but this one is total rubbish.
All characters are 2 dimensional, although I feel that is slightly insulting to the x and y coordinates.
Nothing makes any sense. Jack Reacher encounters a problem, comes to some poor Sherlock Holmes conclusion about what's probably happening which turns out to be 100 spot on, then easilly overcomes the problem. All bad people are bad and stupid. All good people are good and clever. Reacher just kills a bunch of people with zero effort and zero conscience and zero consequence. Possibly his biggest challenge in the book is going without coffee for a few hours.
The books basically reads like Steven Segal's auto biography, if he'd written one.
