Now a major motion picture

"Electrifying . . . This series [is] utterly addictive."--Janet Maslin, The New York Times

Six shots. Five dead. One heartland city thrown into a state of terror. But within hours the cops have it solved: a slam-dunk case. Except for one thing. The accused man says: You got the wrong guy. Then he says: Get Reacher for me.

And sure enough, ex-military investigator Jack Reacher is coming. He knows this shooter--a trained military sniper who never should have missed a shot. Reacher is certain something is not right--and soon the slam-dunk case explodes.

Now Reacher is teamed with a beautiful young defense lawyer, moving closer to the unseen enemy who is pulling the strings. Reacher knows that no two opponents are created equal. This one has come to the heartland from his own kind of hell. And Reacher knows that the only way to take him down is to match his ruthlessness and cunning--and then beat him shot for shot.

"Pulse-pounding action."-- Chicago Sun-Times

"Compelling, furiously paced." --Los Angeles Times

"Crackles with excitement." --St. Petersburg Times

"Pure adrenaline, from its well-constructed setup to its explosive, unforgettable finale." --The Miami Herald

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.

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

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.

Jack Reacher is a very bad man, but a good one. Glad he's on the side of the good guys. 7 of 10 stars

I like the Jack Reacher character. Good story, even if it is a stretch of plausibility. 7 of 10 for me.
