Why did I read this? Because I have read every book in the series and enjoy reading them.
Reacher gets off a bus, walks past a pawn shop and sees a West Point class ring in the window. He buys it and searches for the owner of the ring to return it. It puts him right in the middle of two of today’s biggest issues, treatment of disable veterans and the opiod epidemic. As he gets the bad guys to play tag and name the next step of the ladder he puts himself and the allies he picks up in harms way. But they don’t mind because the ring belongs to a family member of one and the other one is also on the side of right.
