A Good Read
This is the first Jack Reicher novel I have read. And if this is your first you will be happy to know that it does not depend on previous stories to enjoy the novel.
In many suspense novels I am often able to guess the outcome. In this one I really couldn't tell who the bad guys were because everyone seemed to be hiding something. There is one very graphic scene but it was not an overreach for this storyline. It did make me wonder how much of the backstory was based on real events.
While I have not read the previous novels, I am looking forward to the next one since I would expect this character to find new challenges to face and not simply a replay of the last one in different clothes.
