"[Jack] Reacher takes a stroll through a small Wisconsin town and sees a class ring in a pawn shop window: West Point 2005. A tough year to graduate: Iraq, then Afghanistan. The ring is tiny, for a woman, and it has her initials engraved on the inside. Reacher wonders what unlucky circumstance made her give up something she earned over four hard years. He decides to find out. And find the woman. And return her ring. Why not? So begins a harrowing journey that takes Reacher through the upper Midwest, from a lowlife bar on the sad side of small town to a dirt-blown crossroads in the middle of nowhere, encountering bikers, cops, crooks, muscle, and a missing persons PI who wears a suit and a tie in the Wyoming wilderness. The deeper Reacher digs, and the more he learns, the more dangerous the terrain becomes. Turns out the ring was just a small link in a far darker chain. Powerful forces are guarding a vast criminal enterprise. Some lines should never be crossed. But then, neither should Reacher."-- Provided by publisher.

The author covers a lot of territory in this novel. Very informative, seems to have much more
humor than any others I have read of his. Good movie material. May be his best.

This book is different. For once, Reacher gets himself into the plot. Usually, he’s just wandering around until he gets sucked into somebody else’s problem(s). This time, he finds a ring where there shouldn’t be a ring & sets off on his own adventure to find the owner. I liked that. I liked him being more open & cooperative with the authorities. I agree with other reviewers that these books are getting too long. That’s why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.

I love the Jack Reacher books. But this one was a disappointment. It started out great but the plot began to fizzle about half way. Even so, Jack Reacher was still fun to read about.

Very dull book. Reacher books used to be money in the bank. A lot of anti climatic dead ends. The only good thing it was a library book and I didn't waste money on it.

Kick ass Jack is back!!! I love this series and Lee never disappoints. This book would make a great movie, but Tom Cruise couldn't match the description of Jack in this book. I waited a while for this book to arrive, but it was sure worth the wait. Five stars from me!!
