Like others reviewing this book, I have read all Jack Reacher books AND I actually enjoyed Tom Cruise as our hero in the movies. But, this book is so different. Seems to have been written by a first time would be writer with a plot that doesn't fly. Changed to 1st person narration which seems to ensure padding for length. I've no idea what caused this change but it is purile and has left me unsatisfied and perhaps never to buy another Child offering. With the millions of dollars already made, Lee probably doesn't care if I never buy another. Maybe that's the problem.
