Putrid. Easily the worst Reacher book. Child has reached an abysmal new low. An unconscious parody of a parody. If you can get thru this dreck you're a masochist. Every part of the construction of a novel, the plot, the characters, the dialog, the characters' internal thoughts, the action set pieces, etc is just absurd. Absurd. Pathetically absurd. This is a book that screams "author has long lost it, needs to fulfill book contract.". Sad.
