Reasons to read the book:
- It’s by Lee Child
- It’s about Reacher
- Reacher is young and still in the army
- He gets to act all clever and heroic, with a few fights thrown in for the fans
- Featuring Neagly
- It’s a cool slice of pre-911 history
- You get to see a lot of Hamburg, Germany, and suddenly you understand Brexit a little better
Reasons not to read the book:
- If you think all the Reacher thrillers are the same, this one follows suit. (Now that’s a plus in my opinion, because you get what you expect and paid for, but I know some people might see it differently.)
- If you need to solve the mystery before Reacher does, you’re out of luck. The cryptic clue will be of no help to the readers.
- Once you read it, you have to wait a whole year for a new one.
