This Jack Reacher series mystery was not as engrossing for me during the first half of the book because the author was taking so long to set up the situation. But once that happened, then I was totally involved. I've read most of the series and always have to start reading as soon as I bring it home from the library, even if I'm involved with one or two other books. I enjoy how quickly and easily he dispatches the bad guys. He's my author for getting storybook gratification that the bad guys pay a serious price. I'll keep reading Jack Reacher books until there are absolutely no more. I keep watching for them.
