The book and the movie are similar but the book has more characters involved and a clearer movement from clue to clue to reach the conclusion. The reason for the four stars is that this is a good book in the genre and the Jack Reacher series although I wouldn't rate it so highly against what are often called serious writers.

A Jack Reacher novel which started off rather well but written like a rush job near the end. Too much explaining - pendantic- in the book rather storytelling. Was disappointed and would not recommend.

Excellent airplane book or beach read. Very satisfying.

fun read. I can see why Tom Cruise (and many other actors) would want to portray this character.

I wondered how the author would solve this riddle outlined right at the start of the book: 6 innocent by-standers shot by a sniper, who when caught with slam dunk evidence against him, maintains his innocence and claims that the police have the wrong guy. And he wants Jack Reacher to investigate this case...a puzzling request since Reacher promised to kill him should he kill others again using his sniper training. One needs the author to guide one through this maze...not a plot easily solved with the few clues that authors usually throw to their readers. Excellent, spell binding read.

Lots of twists and turns in this one.
With the usual gut-wrenching violence. No one is safe.-----I believe the first Jack Reacher book was "Killing Floor" in 1997.
