Jack Reacher finds himself in bad company in the second novel in Lee Child’s #1 New York Times bestselling series.


Jack Reacher is an innocent bystander when he witnesses a woman kidnapped off a Chicago street in broad daylight. In the wrong place at the wrong time, he’s kidnapped with her. Chained together, locked in the back of a stifling van, and racing across America to an unknown destination for an unknown purpose, they’re at the mercy of a group of men demanding an impossible ransom. Because this mysterious woman is worth more than Reacher ever suspected. Now he has to save them both—from the inside out—or die trying....


  • Not worth reading

    Horrendous and incredulous story line. I am a former FBI agent and in no logical world would three agents armed with only six-shot revolvers attempt to rescue a person from over 100-armed militia personnel who mostly are armed with semi-automatic weapons. There are too many other incredulous plot lines to list or to waste my time exposing. Sadly, this is someone simply writing for a paycheck. In my opinion—not worth reading whatsoever.
  • Good Read

    There were some unnecessary details (in my opinion) that slowed down the action pace, but i understand they may have been necessary for people unfamiliar with certain weapons or aspects of the military. Still couldn’t put it down.

    A very exciting read. Keeps you on your toes. Scary and tearful moments. Love it! ❤️
  • Story is good, execution is average.

    By cplgum
    His writing style is choppy for not being stream of consciousness, and his knowledge of small arms is poor.

    Love Jack. Only it is unbelievable that these killers would not kill him in the first five minutes let alone the rest of the story. They killed the dentist without any hesitation. Jack being a big man would have been a greater threat. Then they don’t kill him at the barn, and again when they arrive at the compound. Enjoyed the writing, the inconsistencies in the story left me disappointed.
