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 sibling -- and it showed as he threw Jack into far more fights than any previous book that Lee has written, and killed more people outright, no hesitation.
This wasn't any Jack Reacher I'd want to meet or ever read again.
