Suicide bombers are easy to spot. They give out all kinds of tell-tale signs. Mostly because they’re nervous. By definition they’re all first-timers.

There are twelve things to look for: No one who has worked in law enforcement will ever forget them.

New York City. The subway, two o’clock in the morning. Jack Reacher studies his fellow passengers. Four are OK. The fifth isn’t.

The train brakes for Grand Central Station. Will Reacher intervene, and save lives? Or is he wrong? Will his intervention cost lives – including his own?   from Goodreads

I’m a Reacher fan and I loved the hook.  He identified a suicide bomber but tragedy still struck.  What came after was a war-time backstory and a senator ready to run for President.  I listened to this one and there were some very disturbing images that will be stuck in my mind forever and I’m not happy about it.  This was not even close to being a favorite even with the subway scene and NYC and Washington DC setting.
