It is fun to find out a bit about Reacher's past. This book is one that a Reacher fan will like, but if you aren't a Reacher fan it won't be as meaningful for you. Dick Hill was good as Reacher but this was the first time I thought some of his female voices didn't fit the character so well. It is probably better for Hill if Reacher hangs out in Nebraska or Michigan and stays out of Mississipi and Georgia. Nevertheless, the book is worth a listen.
The plot is fairly predictable, but the execution of the narrative is the reason you read/listen to a Vince Flynn book. George Guidall is excellent as the narrator and makes listening to the story a fun experience. People who like Flynn will love this and people who haven't tried Flynn might be a little confused by the characters. The cast is pretty much the same as other "Assassin" books and Flynn doesn't bore his regular readers by reconstructing his characters, but newbies might not understand or appreciate some of the conflict between characters. So it is a good book but not one that new Flynn readers should start with.
