I always enjoy the Jack Reacher novels. There's lots of action and not too much character rumination like with some mysteries. I'm hooked on this series! Lee Child is a good writer.

In this book, Reacher has the help of 2 women MPs and 1 male MP to help him find out the how, why, and who when 2 other of their past MP mates go missing. It takes a good while for this bunch to find the clues and then put the pieces in order so that they can extract revenge/right the wrongs. Finally, at the end, the action builds. The helicopter scene is the most chilling, but the night attack on the electronic factory with the molotov cocktails is the most thrilling. I also liked Reacher's fascination with numbers and how the team uses that to talk in code to each other. Another well thought out action story. This one ties into current events that suggest that terrorists could use dreadful weapons against US cities/population.

I usually like Lee Child's books and this one started off great but seemed to deteriorate into graphic descriptions of mindless uncalled for violence. Maybe Jack Reacher should be renamed Mary-Sue as he consistently seemed to be the only one who could save the day.

Too long in his descriptions. A tad irritating after a while. The book doesn’t seem to kick start at any place. Everything is stagnant. Some decisions are like he can read in the future. And those numbers he pops out. What’s the use? The end is weak, running around in the compound. The chopper ride is predictable from the get go. And killing the pilot is just over the top. He is a real monster. Very disappointing.

Neagley: You have to do something.
Reacher: I will do something. Believe it. There are dead men walking, as of right now. You don't throw my friends out of helicopters and live to tell the tale.
