    Six shots. Five dead. One heartland city thrown into a state of terror. But within hours the cops have it solved: a slam-dunk case. Except for one thing. The accused man says: "You got the wrong guy". Then he says: "Get Reacher for me". And sure enough, from the world he lives in - no phone, no address, no commitments - ex-military investigator Jack Reacher is coming. In Lee Child's astonishing thriller, Reacher's arrival will change everything - about a case that isn't what it seems, about lives tangled in baffling ways, about a killer who missed one shot - and by doing so gives Jack Reacher one shot at the truth.

    What did you love best about One Shot?

    This Novel pulls you to the edge of you seat and keeps you there. All of Reacher Novels are well written and hen Dick Hill narrates you get great voices and convincing emotions threw his reading.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of One Shot?

    The opening chapters where the gun man kills his victims. The way this sets up the story keeps you guessing who really did it all the way until the end.


    Have you listened to any of Dick Hill’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to all the Reacher novels, and a few other Dick Hill narratives. He is one of the best.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    A few as with all if the Reacher novels.


    Any additional comments?

    A great series, can't wait for the movie. Don't like Tom for Reacher but his lack of physical likeness will be overcome by Toms intensity and great action and acting.

    Ken Follett's World Without End was a global phenomenon, a work of grand historical sweep beloved by millions of readers and acclaimed by critics. Fall of Giants is his magnificent new historical epic. The first novel in The Century Trilogy, it follows the fates of five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they move through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women's suffrage.

    Keith says: "Ken Follett and John Lee / Audible's Dream Team"

    What did you love best about Fall of Giants?

    John Lee's narrative captures the numerous accents and characters personalities worthy of a Oscar. The story holds your attention, but Mr. Lee doesn't allow you to break free from wanting to spend every free moment listening. If you wish to try using Audio Books, this one is a Must Listen. If your an old fan of Audio Books, your lIbary will not be complete without this book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Numerous!


    Have you listened to any of John Lee’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, he is amazing. I am adding everything he had done that I can to my library. This is the best so far, numerous characters, wild range of voices and accents.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, after I started listening. But not possible due to the length.
