But Jack has evolved. I like the earlier books better, where he occasionally used the 110th & other resources- and was a lot more self sufficient. The story was better than some of the more recent books, but it could have been any hero - bring back the original Jack Reacher! Some while speculation earlier in the book and then later more options were taken into account. Abby seemed to have a lot of input from someone with her background. But again the story Was easy to follow and the book easy to pick up to keep reading.
