I have read all the Reacher books. I enjoyed this one too. It is a book of fiction about an unknown stranger helping out someone getting railroaded by the all powerful. Sounds familiar and takes my mind off the problems of the world. This is why I occasionally read feel good fiction stories. This one seems to have a lot of unfair negative reviews. It might just be because it has his brother Andrew as a contributor. A little bias there people? Quit nitpicking like we are professors grading a paper and just enjoy the story.
