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.

Disappointing!

I have read all the Reacher books, a few were excellent, the rest were very good apart from this one.
Firstly the story line is weak and unconvincing, secondly the book was padded with overlong unnecessary descriptions but finally and most importantly this had the feel of a commercial book, using the Reacher/ Child brand to squeeze more profit from a captured audience. Of course to a certain sense many books are commercial. This one in my view was more so than most, not especially creative, rather focused on doing a formulaic task. Producing what the authors perceive as a requirement for the Brand.
So having read all the previous Reacher books and enjoyed them, there is credit in the author's and publishers favour. But if the next is the same, you lose me and I project many other Reacher fans

No, just no.

Stop with this first-person perspective. Please.
This reads like it’s written by someone in a Creative Writing Uni course.
Thank you.

Don’t Read It If You Like Jack [none] Reacher

If there was a lower rating I would give it. Who kidnapped Reacher and replaced him with this imbecile who can’t think, talk, fight, appreciate women and has none of the other character attributes that made me binge read the whole series. To finish on this is a massive disappointment. If the next one is this bad then I would suggest that the series ends with The Sentinel because this imposter bearing Jack Reacher’s name is Better Off Dead.
