This was my first Jack Reacher novel and probably my last. Although I've read books written together by Janet Evanovich and Lee Child and thought they were awesome, Lee Child by himself is waaaaay too wordy for me. Much to my dismay, the book was 10 discs long and could have easily been done in 5. Additionally, disc 9 had a problem with one of the tracks which caused me to miss what happened to one of the suspects. On one track he was there, and on the next track the guy was no longer a suspect. Such is the problem with audiobooks. If you've got nothing else to read, then I say go ahead and take on this book and trudge through it for the "surprise" ending, otherwise, look for something else.
