Like so many other best selling authors, Lee Child is trying to keep the brand going by bringing in a co-author, his own younger brother. That never works for me and I admit I started this novel with trepidation. However, it turned out to…Read moreRead more of this comment

Weelllllll, I did finish it. Marginally better that his latest previous two attempts but still doesn't stand up to a Jack Reacher story. The first third showed potential but then just went down hill. Maybe Andrew helped with some technical…Read moreRead more of this comment

I have read all the Jack Reacher books and most had me hooked in the first chapter. This one was unreadable and I never finished it. I will not read another Reacher book with Andrew Child's name on it.

3 - 3 1/2 star read. I give this book 3 stars for the beginning of the book and 3 1/2 stars for the end of it. I am not sure that the Lee and Andrew Child collaboration is a good one for the Jack Reacher franchise. It did not ring true…Read moreRead more of this comment

The last Jack Reacher book I will ever read. It was so bad I could hardly finish. Lee Child should never have let his brother take over writing the books. This is just about greed and seeing how much more money could be made.
Well, I finished "The Sentinel" last night, and must admit I was quite disappointed in it (as I see from other comments, many other Reacher fans were as well). Over the last 2-3 years I've read Lee Child's other 24 Reacher books, and this…Read moreRead more of this comment
So, Lee Child is handing over the reins of his Jack Reacher series, to his brother Andrew. This book is a disappointing start. My only hope for this beloved character is that Andrew is still teachable, willing to do some hard work, and…Read moreRead more of this comment

I’ve read all of the 20+ Reacher books. This one continues the decline evident in the past several books, with increasing attention to political correctness, but now diving deeper into the swamp.
It continues with the basic Reacher…Read moreRead more of this comment

I was disappointed with this book as this did not convey the persona of Jack Reacher that I looked forward to reading about. I find that when the regular author retires it is difficult to re- capture and depict the main character…Read moreRead more of this comment

It's a Reacher novel, which means page after page of action. It's also back in small town USA, where the town itself sets the mood. The characters are never forgotten- everything ties up in the end. It isn't literature but it is…Read moreRead more of this comment
One week ago had you told me that I would have zero interest in finishing the final one hundred pages of a jack Reacher novel I would have said you were crazy. But that is just what happened and I will never regret that I will never know…Read moreRead more of this comment

This is a very poor effort indeed , from Lee Child, if he even wrote this. I suspect that it was mostly written by his brother Andrew, and what a poor writer he is. This is NOT Jack Reacher. The book is full of badly written chapters,…Read moreRead more of this comment

I've loved all the other Jack Reacher books, but this one was terrible. It was supposed to have been co-authored by Lee and his brother, Andrew, but it was clearly written by Andrew Child (aka Andrew Grant. Grant has written other…Read moreRead more of this comment

This was a different feeling novel, as Lee noticeably turned over writing and research duties to son, Andrew. Andrew doesn't have the same care of Reacher as Dad, Lee. Lee is Reacher's creator, Reacher's father. Andrew is the competitive…Read moreRead more of this comment

Within a few pages it was clear that Lee Child had REALLY retired. Doubt he was even involved in this book. SO then the question becomes, "It's not as good as previous books in series, but is it good enough to stay with the series?"

Interesting to start: Reacher in a small town recognizes a kidnapping is about to happen to an
unsuspecting man, so Reacher saves the day. Story devolves into too many characters, plots, and blah, blah. Please bring back the old Reacher…Read moreRead more of this comment
