Jack Reacher.

The ultimate loner.

An elite ex-military cop who left the service years ago, he’s moved from place to place…without family…without possessions…without commitments.

And without fear. Which is good, because trouble—big, violent, complicated trouble—finds Reacher wherever he goes. And when trouble finds him, Reacher does not quit, not once…not ever.

But some unfinished business has now found Reacher. And Reacher is a man who hates unfinished business.

Ten years ago, a key investigation went sour and someone got away with murder. Now a chance encounter brings it all back. Now Reacher sees his one last shot. Some would call it vengeance. Some would call it redemption. Reacher would call it…justice.

User Review  - Jojo Cho - Goodreads

READ: only if you are a fan of Jack Reacher: otherwise, it was long, bit confusing with parallel stories 10 years apart... In other words, you must pay attention to all the character's names... Read full review

Review: Persuader (Jack Reacher #7)

User Review  - Cindy Grossi - Goodreads

Just skim the ballistics and ammo stuff and it's a great adventure. Once again, I had to devour this book to find out just how Reacher gets out of this impossible mission. Love his character. Read full review
