    Anyone read it?
    Yep, read it, but, not the best, the mojo seems to have disappeared
    I haven't failed, i've merely found 10,000 reasons why it didn't work

    Well, Santa brought it in (for me :-). So I guess I will be making a start tonight. IMG_20211225_201249.jpg

    I read it too. I'm with Gis; the mojo seems to have disappeared. can't help wondering if the soon-to-kickoff TV series sucked focus away from quality control needs for the book.
    The rules are: There ain't no rules.

    Finished it now, verdict = OK

    I was late to the Reacher party, reading my first one in about 2006. One Shot. The series was around ten books old by then. I thought it brilliant and sought out all the previous ones as soon as I was able.

    If my first read was this latest one I doubt it would make me want to rush out to get the previous ones.

    It's good but not extra special. Maybe the series has run it's course. Maybe it's just me although the thought of a new one doesn't seem to attract as much attention, enthusiasm and comment as the did, say, ten years ago
