Reacher faces terrorists extorting a clerk from the Pentagon. As usual, when Reacher’s sense of justice is violated, mayhem ensues.
Child does a nice job bringing a historic perspective to the Afghan fiasco. At least Child has learned the value of history and the clarity of perspective it provides if one o
nly studies it.
Reacher is the classic, doesn’t play well with others, protagonist. His frustration with the inability of the “machine” to protect the vulnerable, leads him to his own brand of vigilante justice. The scenario’s primary location are the mean streets of New York. The tenor of the tale, once again, casts aspirations on the quality of personnel in the federal sector. Reacher has more faith in the NYPD than he does in the alphabet soup of D.C.
As in all the Jack Reacher books I have read so far, there is non-stop action and lots of violence.
I enjoyed the book and I recommend the book.
