    Across the country women are being murdered by a killer who leaves no evidence, no fatal wounds, no signs of struggle, and no clues to a motive. They are, truly, perfect crimes. In fact, the only thing that links the victims is the man they all knew: Jack Reacher.

    Jack says: "Good Story But Surprise Narrator"
    "Bizarre narration"

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not really. Pretty good story line but bizarre narration. I have listened to hundreds of audible selections and this was among the poorest with regard to narration. The FBI agents are narrated in a cartoonish (Inspector Gadget comes to mind) manner; if FBI agent Blake's narration were in text message format it would be all caps with exclamation marks after every word, phrase or sentence. Really strange. NO ONE in real life talks like that. And his female sidekick, Lamarr... sounds like a psycho in desperate need of a good psychotherapist. It was actually painful listening to much of the narration. Just horribly done.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Story line was OK and somewhat plausible although the deception by the villain was so complicated that it made no sense whatsoever. Much easier to create a serial murder scenario without having to lug hundreds of gallons of "camo green" paint all over the country.


    What didn’t you like about Jonathan McClain’s performance?

    In my opinion, Mr. McClain has a lot of learning to do or needs to seek another profession.


    Was Running Blind worth the listening time?

    Compared to some of the other Jack Reacher novels....NO.
