- Jack Reacher, Book 24
- By: Lee Child
- Narrated by: Jeff Harding
- Length: 11 hrs and 13 mins
In a nameless city, two ruthless rival criminal gangs, one Albanian, the other Ukrainian, are competing for control. But they hadn’t counted on Jack Reacher arriving on their patch. Reacher is trained to notice things. He’s on a Greyhound bus, watching an elderly man sleeping in his seat, with a fat envelope of cash hanging out of his pocket. Another passenger is watching too...obviously hoping to get rich quick. As the mugger makes his move, Reacher steps in....
Absolutely CLASSIC Reacher!

This book is utter garbage.
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.
