Not one of the better Reacher stories. Reacher's really getting up there in age, and in some ways it's reflected in the stories, and in others not so much. Reacher's familiarity with cell phones is so poor he can barely operate one, it seems. That's not surprising, given that he doesn't own one and frequently uses pay phones (where does one even find one nowadays?) But his ability to engage in highly physical warfare seems to be unaffected by age - at least in this story. The scope is unrealistic, as so many others have pointed out: defeating two separate organized crime syndicates in a couple of days with a motley selection of random strangers? Too much, even for Reacher. The addition of the techno storyline felt like a grasp to include recent events, and didn't feel all that natural. For those who love to read about Jack Reacher killing people as Booklist suggests - there's plenty there for you.
