Disappointing - I figured out who is the bad guy long before Jack Reacher did.
Review by Heptonj
Another excellent novel from Mr Child. Jack Reacher gets involved with a small town police department's problems when he is stranded when the coach he is travelling on crashes. He becomes a witness protector to an old lady who is to give evidence at a criminal trial.Many hands are in the pie regarding a stash of drugs stored in an old military base by the US Army after WWII and double and triple-crossings occur in the criminal organizations. People on both sides of the law are brought down and it is Reacher who finally delivers the justice.I found this Jack Reacher story a little different to the rest and was really surprised when he shot a man down in cold blood (however much he deserved it) and a cliff-hanger at the end to boot when Jack is not shown to survive an underground fire. He obviously escapes because I have the next book in the series!Well worth reading.

Jack Reacher hitches a ride on a senior tour bus in South Dakota during a blizzard. The bus is stranded and the passengers are assigned homes to stay in since the prison in town has family occupying all the motels because of visiting day. Jack after an introduction to law enforcement is assigned the home of a elderly woman who is in police protection. He’s interested in a mysterious underground bunker that bikers are squatting at while waiting out the storm. It’s a typical Jack Reacher novel.

This is a Jack Reacher special similar format to all the others. Jack is stuck in thr snow in a wee town near a big prison in South Dakota. The Police are guarding a little old lady who witnessed some bad stuff. There are a few twists and turns some people end up dead. I wont spoil the ending Jack saves the day after a few explosions. Easy entertaining book. Keep them coming.
