    Jack Reacher is approached by a Secret Service agent who needs a favor. "I want to hire you to assassinate the Vice President of the United States," she asks. She is the newly appointed head of the VP's security detail and wants Reacher to try to penetrate her team's shield. He has the skills and the stealth and no one knows him. How else can she be sure her protection is truly effective?

    "lots of talking & meeting"
    Overall

    Lots and lots of talking, group meetings of strategy, motives, acting and reacting and it does on and on...to the point it became somewhat boring. the book was somewhat agreeable but I wouldn't necessarily recommend it for future listening or reading.

    Former military cop Jack Reacher makes it all the way from snowbound South Dakota to his destination in northeastern Virginia, near Washington, D.C.: the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th MP. The old stone building is the closest thing to a home he ever had. Reacher is there to meet - in person - the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner, so far just a warm, intriguing voice on the phone. But it isn’t Turner behind the CO’s desk. And Reacher is hit with two pieces of shocking news, one with serious criminal consequences, and one too personal to even think about.

    Story
    Has Never Go Back turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Somewhat


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Reacher is turning into a sissy, talks a lot, always a lady stand out actually overshadowing Reacher himself.


    What character would you cut from Never Go Back?

    TURNER!


    Any additional comments?

    It just may be me but these Reacher books just don’t have that ministry/excitement to them anymore. The Killing floor was Lee’s 1st and mine also, over the pass year’s I have read them all, not sure why. There's more predictability, discussion and strategy replacing the Old Reacher brute force…I guess the next book will be about what color flowers Reacher prefers. JS

    Four people in a car, hoping to make Chicago by morning. An hour behind them, a man lies stabbed to death in an old pumping station. He was seen going in with two others, but he never came out. He has been executed, the knife work professional, the killers vanished. Within minutes, the police are notified. Within hours, the FBI descends, laying claim to the victim without ever saying who he was or why he was there. All Reacher wanted was a ride to Virginia. All he did was stick out his thumb. But he soon discovers he has hitched more than a ride.

    Enough with the female FBI agents, and home groaned terrorist. Why not some Mexican drug lords? And they were times I could not make what Dick Hill was saying.

    Sole Survivor unfolds at a heart-stopping pace, as a desperate chase and a shattering emotional odyssey lead Joe to a truth that will force him to reassess everything he thought he knew about life and death, a truth that, given the chance, will rock the world and redefine the destiny of humanity.

    Like others, I like Dean Koontz books, but this one was extremely boring. They were a time or two were I actually fast-forwarded some of Carpenter’s whining and outrage. Especially the segment about the cookies baking Colorado woman.

    For months, Mitch Rapp has been steadily working his way through a list of men, bullet by bullet. With each kill, the tangled network of monsters responsible for the slaughter of 270 civilians becomes increasingly clear. He is given his next target: a plump Libyan diplomat who is prone to drink and is currently in Paris without a single bodyguard. Rapp finds him completely unprotected and asleep in his bed. With confidence in his well-honed skills and conviction of the man’s guilt, he easily sends a bullet into the man’s skull. But in the split second it takes the bullet to leave the silenced pistol, everything changes.

    I'm not sure what description would fit best is somewhere between bad story or no story atoll. Very boring, very un-capitalists just a bad book in general.

    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

    Story

    This book is outstanding!!! Tells about the way the war came to a end...as to the way President Lincolns life came to a end. but, I think Mr. O'Reilly "may" have been wrong about last time General Lee and General Grant spoke. Robert Lee visited President Grant one other occasion. It was at the White House and it was about railroad access to Lexington, Va. When Lee was President of Washington University.

    A tour bus crashes in a savage snowstorm and lands Jack Reacher in the middle of a deadly confrontation. In nearby Bolton, South Dakota, one brave woman is standing up for justice in a small town threatened by sinister forces. If she's going to live long enough to testify, she'll need help. Because a killer is coming to Bolton, a coldly proficient assassin who never misses.

    Gustavo says: "Make sure you have time before you start"
    "I surely hope this wasn't the end"
    Overall

    I looked forward to the arrival of this book for a long time. I wasn't disappointed at all; hard driving Jack None Reacher puts it all on the line once again. Therefore, I will wait to see where Reacher pops-up next.

    In Dead Man's Walk, Gus and Call are not yet 20, young men coming of age in the days when Texas was still an independent republic. Enlisting as Texas Rangers under a land pirate who wants to seize Santa Fe from the Mexicans, Gus and Call experience their first great adventure in the barren great plains landscape, in which arbitrary violence is the rule -- whether from nature, or from the Indians whose territory they must cross in order to reach New Mexico.<

    Richard says: "Not Lonesome Dove"
    "Too much torture and too many whores"
    Overall

    If you enjoy stories of people being tortured this is a book for you. I had to force myself to finish this book; traditionally I love wild western stories.
