Publisher Description

Reacher never backs down from a problem.

And he's about to find a big one, on a deserted Arizona road, where a Jeep has crashed into the only tree for miles around. Under the merciless desert sun, nothing is as it seems.

Minutes later Reacher is heading into the nearby border town, a backwater that has seen better days. Next to him is Michaela Fenton, an army veteran turned FBI agent, who is trying to find her twin brother. He might have got mixed up with some dangerous people.

And Reacher might just need to pay them a visit.

Their leader has burrowed his influence deep into the town. Just to get in and meet the mysterious Dendoncker, Reacher is going to have to achieve the impossible.

To get answers will be even harder. There are people in this hostile, empty place who would rather die than reveal their secrets.

But then, if Reacher is coming after you, you might be better off dead.

Although the Jack Reacher novels can be read in any order, Better Off Dead is the 26th book in the internationally popular series.

Better off Doing Something Else

Sadly, I think this will be the last Jack Reacher book that I buy. It just became a slog to finish it. Over inflated descriptions of buildings, streets and rooms became tedious to plough through. Unless it’s integral to the plot, who cares what is under a table in the left hand corner of a room, or what colour or vintage it is? Reasonable plot, with typical Reacher self dialogue to move the action along. I wouldn’t recommend this book, and I have read all the others in the series.

The Herald Used To Be Good ,

Not the Same Reacher

The storyline is ok, but that’s about all. Overly descriptive of the wrong things (every single room entered), and written in the first person, which doesn’t flow well 20+ books into a character. It was trying too hard to be different, and missed the magic in the process.

Good but felt long

Dragged out in places. Not as good as usual. Great use of words to be able to depict scenes exactly how they are pictured in your head.
