Not one of Child's best. A little bit of a different Jack Reacher in this one. Not so many broken bones, and shattered ear drums from the big man in this episode. Its a bit long and drawn out, with lots of time spent driving around the backwoods and rural roads of Wyoming. It could easily have been 50 pages shorter. Several chapters appear to have been ghost written, and not too well written at that. I wonder where the copy editors were on those, as they lack Child's usual crisp and immaculate English.
