Stephen King calls Jack Reacher “the coolest continuing series character”—and now he’s back in this masterly new thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child.
“Why is this town called Mother’s Rest?” That’s all Reacher wants to know. But no one will tell him. It’s a tiny place hidden in a thousand square miles of wheat fields, with a railroad stop, and sullen and watchful people, and a worried woman named Michelle Chang, who mistakes him for someone else: her missing partner in a private investigation she thinks must have started small and then turned lethal.
Reacher has no particular place to go, and all the time in the world to get there, and there’s something about Chang . . . so he teams up with her and starts to ask around. He thinks: How bad can this thing be? But before long he’s plunged into a desperate race through LA, Chicago, Phoenix, and San Francisco, and through the hidden parts of the internet, up against thugs and assassins every step of the way—right back to where he started, in Mother’s Rest, where he must confront the worst nightmare he could imagine.
Walking away would have been easier. But as always, Reacher’s rule is: If you want me to stop, you’re going to have to make me.
Praise for #1 bestselling author Lee Child and his Jack Reacher series
“Reacher is the stuff of myth. . . . One of this century’s most original, tantalizing pop-fiction heroes.”—The Washington Post
“[A] feverishly thrilling series . . . with Child, you can always count on furious action.”—The Miami Herald

I am an avid jack reacher fan however---really wondered who wrote this book? Dufficult to read very disappointing style compared to all the other spectacular stories please go back to your previous successes mr child!

Too much time in Reacher's head and he isn't thinking anything remotely interesting. Boring detail and musings. There is not enough plot to sustain a short story, much less a novel. Not enouh action. Even the characters are under-developed. It reads like a collection of scraps edited out of prior novels tacked together. In short, inexplicably awful.

The last several books have been a real let down! This one was slow, boring, too descriptive and not interesting. Not a good read.

The characters were vague even Reacher. Storyline was too contrived. Skip this one.

A real let down. I have read and loved all of the earlier Reacher books. This book reads unevenly, and barely resembles a Reacher book.

Easily the worst Reacher novel. Like Child was struggling to write it, and not sure how to do it. Do not waste your money.

Lee's lasr two Reacher books have been a real let down for me.

This was a page turner only because I was trying to find something interesting to hapen. 2/3 of tbe way in it finally got aa little interesting. Poory structured as some of what the bad guys were up to should have been revealed earlier. This certainly not up to Child's standards.

Lee Child did it again. A can't stop reading story right from page one.

I could read his books all day long. They always end too soon. I sometimes read them twice. Especially like to go back and read the first ones. Most of my earlier Jack Reacher books are hardback. So I really enjoy getting them on my nook them minute that they are available.

I have read every Reacher book written. Clearly much of this book was written by someone other then Lee Child. If not written by someone else then one of my favorite authors has become compromised in some way. I sincerely hope Mr. Child is not ill. Fans can not be fooled. The story line was desperate and insulting. If you are a true Reacher fan you will buy and read this book no matter what these reviews say. I did. And by the way, I am still peeved over Tom Cruise. The Jack Reacher in my mind is more Liam Neesonesque. Just saying.

Have read all the Reacher books and was looking forward to this one but feel that it goes over the top when it comes to detail and story. It is the darkest of all his books and gruesome.

So good!

I really enjoy anything Jack Reacher gets into, from the schmucks he has to deal with, to the women he gets involved with, I love putting myself in his shoes during the story.

Develops Reacher's character further by revealing some regrets about his choice to be rootless. As always great action and sense of place.

This was a typical Reacher novel. Not as good as others and a bit slow, but it kept me interested. Tip to other reviewers: if you're going to give a review, whether positive or negative, make sure your spelling and punctuation is right. Otherwise your review is worthless.

Am a huge Lee Child fan, so am pretty easy to please, however the ending of this one was disturbing. Of course, I will be looking forward to Child's next novel!

Good, but too wordy :too much side detail not the jack reacher thriller i am used to

I typically love Lee Child's writing and usually think he can not publish anither Jack Reacher book quick enouugh. I have read all of his books and although this one was good it was not as good as the rest. Also the last three chapters.or so began to really drag for me. Jack Reacher is such a great character but this booked definitely lacked.the same level of action thst the previous Reacher books had.

I've read all the Reacher books and loved them all, except the last two. I can't believe Lee Child is writing these books. There is very little action and the Reacher bravado is gone. I'm looking for a new Reacher-like character now. Child has lost Jack. Goodbye Jack

Hmmmmm. Not that great. I debated buying this book at the high price since I haven't liked his previous 2-3 novels. I went ahead and purchased, but I was disappointed. My advice, wait for it to go on sale, not worth full price. Step it up please M. child!

I should of listen to some of the review that i read before i purchased the book. Not as good as some of the earlier books.
