Across the country, women are being murdered, victims of a disciplined and clever killer who leaves no trace evidence, no fatal wounds, no signs of struggle, and no clues to an apparent motive. They are, truly, perfect crimes. In fact, there's only one thing that links the victims. Each one of the women knew Jack Reacher--and it's got him running blind.
"Reacher is one of the more interesting suspense heroes to come along in a while."--San Antonio Express News
"A superior series."--The Washington Post Book World
"A great read."--St. Petersburg Times
"Spectacular...muscular, energetic prose and pell-mell pacing."--The Seattle Times
"Jack Reacher, the wandering folk hero of Child's superb line of thrillers faces a baffling puzzle in his latest adventure...a brain-teasing puzzle that gets put together piece by fascinating piece...and a central character with Robin Hood-like integrity and an engagingly eccentric approach to life."--Publishers Weekly
"Deeply satisfying...plan to stay up long past bedtime and do some serious hyperventilating toward the end."--Kirkus Reviews
"This fourth Reacher thriller is easily the best. The plot is a masterpiece. Reacher belongs at the same table with...Parker's Spenser."--Booklist
"With numerous plot twists and turns, Child puts Reacher through his paces brilliantly, arriving at an unusual solution. Highly recommended."--Library Journal

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Also, the "motive" angle. It reminded me of these works (not verbatim as I was in my teens when I read it)
Carella to journalist in cafe "these murders are personal". - big fan of Ed McBain :)

I enjoyed the slight change and it was a nice change.
Lee Child's writing continues to bug me a bit, describing places far too much with far too much description. Characters having conversations that lead the plot nowhere and feel like filler.
But this can all be forgiven as this was the most interesting Reacher book yet that has me guessing until the end. Whenever there's intrigue and suspicion to be had, you're always guessing in your head who the villain might be but it wasn't too obvious at any point for me.
He is constantly outmaneuvered by the protagonist and the reader is constantly given (in italics) the thought process of the perp but as usual, Childs twists and turns the plot and is always two jumps ahead.
I would not dare to suggest this is the top Reacher novel but it's in there, swinging.
This is a poor offering from a normally excellent series with Jack Reacher. If written earlier in the Author's writings it would possibly explain its lack-lustre.
However, I believe, it does little for Child's reputation.
