    Jack Reacher was alone, the way he liked it, soaking up the hot, electric New York City night, watching a man cross the street to a parked Mercedes and drive it away. The car contained one million dollars in ransom money. And Edward Lane, the man who paid it, will pay even more to get his family back. Lane runs a highly illegal soldiers-for-hire operation.

    Overall

    This Reacher story lacked much of the macho interplay that we have come to expect between our superhero and the cast of bad guys. But what was lacking in the first 10 hours or so is more than made up for in a riveting final 90 minutes. I continue to be a fan of narrator Dick Hill but he went a bit overboard with his interpretation of Hobart. Injuries left Hobart unable to speak clearly and Hill did his voice so well that it was difficult, and sometimes impossible, to discern what he was saying on first listen. Other than that annoyance, Hill did his usual splendid job. I've reviewed all the Reacher novels in chronological order and this one doesn't differ from the rest. Escapism with a larger-than-life hero who doesn't take hostages. Violent good prevails over violent evil.
