Amy Callan and Lieutenant Caroline Cook have a lot in common.
High-flying army career women, both are victims of sexual harassment
from their superiors; both are force to resign from the service.
And now they're both dead.
unmarked bodies are discovered in their homes, naked, in baths filled
with army-issue camouflage paint. Expert FBI psychological profilers
start to hunt for a serial murderer, a smart guy with a score to settle,
a loner, an army man, a ruthless vigilante known to them both.
Reacher, a former US military cop, is a smart guy, a loner and a
drifter, as tough as they come. He knew both victims. For
Agent-in-Charge Nelson Blake and his team, he's the perfect match.
They're sure only Reacher has the answers to their burning questions:
how did these women die? And why?
have never read the Jack Reacher series don't worry, despite this being
book 4 you can get away with picking it up as a first book. Jack is our
main character and a decent picture of his background is given. Ex
military cop, loner and used to doing things his way Jack makes for a
great character but not someone you would want to be on the wrong side
Two ex military ladies have a few things in common, the most
obvious being they have both been killed with little to no clues of how
it was done. Jack is the only hope the FBI have and they will do
whatever it takes to make him play ball.
This is a fairly good
paced book with some (for me) laugh out loud moments between Jack and
the FBI woman who clash from being forced upon each other. Some of it
is a tad unbelievable and some of it is pretty clever. All in all a
good read, 3/5 for me.
