I've read or listened to most of the Reacher series and anxiously await new additions. While the book does provide good background on Reacher's military past and the Special Investigative unit, I found the story itself is boring and slow paced. Not much action or intrigue to hold my interest. Not to give anything away, but the culprits seem like a bumbling group of Keystone Cops - you're left wondering how they could be such a formidable opponent.
Hope the next one is better...
I love Jack Reacher but this was a bit confusing for me for some reason. Liked the crew being back together that interaction was great but might have to have another listen.
Dick Hill is the best.
Less focus on numbers. Less useless trivia that went no where.
Not Lee Child
Not sure. Just don't think he depicted the characters very well.
yes, I love Reacher, and I alway's listen to my book's twice
Reacher, He's Tough
When Reacher dropped out the three from the helicopter, then took out the pilot after landing.
I was moved by the book from the begining,
I love all of Reacher, can't wait till the new one is available
its just a little too much meaningless graphic violence even for Reacher. Still it proves the slogan "dont mess ....,
reacher of course
I was an avid reader of books before my work took most of my time so now I listen to Audible books when I'm exercising or walking my dog. I like mystery and thriller novels, particularly good serial killer novels. I'm a writer and a psychotherapist.
This book just seemed like a cookie cutter Jack Reacher novel. Yes, he has sex with the girl, surprise, yes, he's a tough guy, what a shock, but the plot falls far short of the Jack Reacher novel just before it in the Reacher series. It felt like Lee Child wanted a vacation from Jack Reacher so he just threw in all of the elements and gave it to his publisher. There's nothing compelling about the novel. I finished it because I paid for it and I kept hoping something exciting would happen. It didn't.
Create some suspense and intrigue that isn't so predicatable.
I love Dick Hill's performances, this one included.
How about just throw the book away and move on to the next one.
Anybody who likes a men running around killing each other with no story or mystery. No thrills. No plot. I kept waiting for a surprise to happen.
No excitement at all. No mystery. Boring.
Mediocre. Nothing to get me excited.
Who knows. None of them were exciting. Hard time making a connection with any of them.
Don t bother reading his one.
This one will hold your interest and leave you wanting more. Very enjoyable. I often listen to audiobooks while I ride my bike and this one kept me on the saddle. I wanted more. Great book.
Lee Child's Reacher is always reliable. He would be happy living a dull life with no responsibilities but his bad luck get's him in trouble - once again. In this book duty calls in the form of loyalty to his friends, ex-members of his old investigative team. A simple investigation turns more complex and deadly as the story unfolds and things are not what they seem. In a departure from other Reacher stories, this time he is not working alone, making for interesting dialogues and situations. The bad part is that midway into the story the pace slows down; almost seems that Child had decided on the ending but had to buy some time - or rather pages - before getting there. Another minor complain is that the action scenes are a bit silly, but in his defense, this not the reason why we read Reacher's stories. Dick Hill's narration was excellent as usual.
Reliable Reacher story. If you like them this one will not disappoint you.
Just enough drama and well read.
