Yes, it is yet another Jack Reacher novel by Lee Child. This one is the first in the series. It was written in 1997. I read it about 10th out of the 12 Reacher books that I’ve read so far. (There is a 13th book that just came out, but I’m waiting for the paperback version.)
Having read the later books first, you can see that this one is definitely the prototype. Reacher gets in trouble with local law enforcement, but then shows them how things are really done. His crappy attitude is also apparent here. I think he’s one of the better characters in the genre of detective serial fiction. I suppose that’s obvious since I’ve read the whole series to date.
