New York City. Two in the morning. A subway car heading uptown. Jack Reacher, plus five other passengers. Four are okay. The fifth isn't.
In the next few tense seconds Reacher will make a choice-and trigger an electrifying chain of events in this gritty, gripping masterwork of suspense by #1 "New York Times" bestseller Lee Child.
Susan Mark was the fifth passenger. She had a lonely heart, an estranged son, and a big secret. Reacher, working with a woman cop and a host of shadowy feds, wants to know just how big a hole Susan Mark was in, how many lives had already been twisted before hers, and what danger is looming around him now.
Because a race has begun through the streets of Manhattan in a maze crowded with violent, skilled soldiers on all sides of a shadow war. Susan Mark's plain little life was critical to dozens of others in Washington, California, Afghanistan . . . from a former Delta Force operator now running for the U.S. Senate, to a beautiful young woman with a fantastic story to tell-and to a host of others who have just one thing in common: They're all lying to Reacher. A little. A lot. Or maybe just enough to get him killed.
In a novel that slams through one hairpin surprise after another, Lee Child unleashes a thriller that spans three decades and gnaws at the heart of America . . . and for Jack Reacher, a man who trusts no one and likes it that way, it's a mystery with only one answer-the kind that comes when you finally get face-to-face and look your worst enemy in the eye.

Have read most Jack Reacher novels and enjoyed them all. Love that Lee Child doesn't feel the need to expand his novels with extra words of description. Many novels I have read use so much description they lose me after a few chapters. Looking forward to the next adventure with Jack Reacher.

Another great Reacher story. In this one, set in New York, between Central Park and Madison Square Park, Reacher uses subways and walks in order to get around. Thus expect lots of description and directions about getting from point A to point B. If one was familiar with the city, these paragraphs would probably add to the visual impact of the story. In "Gone Tomorrow", Reacher battles alone against a crew of terrorists, including 2 females, and, of course, is victorious, but not without getting some of the stuff he has dished out. Timely topic of politician involvement where one's friends can become one's enemies. One of the better Reacher novels.

My first Child/Reacher novel. Enjoyed it very much, especially the 1st person viewpoint. Plot has far fetched moments, but managed to keep me entertained throughout.

Has the usual hooks, cliffhangers and mysteries that make Lee Child's work so compelling to read, but it's certainly not his best work. The plot turns a little ridiculous towards the end, and the villains' motives are never really explained. Probably because there is no conceivable reason for them to go to such lengths over something so trivial!

I'll never date another Afghan tribeswoman again!
