    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.

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

    He is no Dick Hill. I found it hard to listen to him play Reacher because I am so used to Dick Hill. He did a good job with all of the characters, just not what I am used to.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Dialog was terrible and story was predictable. Almost anything could have made it better.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    King


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Narration was good but they had very little to work with. The mail character was clearly written by a women because no man talks or thinks this way.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment that I waited my time and money

    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.

    Ed says: "Picks up at the conclusion"
    "Not my favorite Reacher"

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Hard Way to be better than the print version?

    Dick Hill does a great job with all of the Reacher stories. He is my favorite reader.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Predictable

    Jack Reacher reunites with the survivors of his old Army investigative team, scrambling to raise the living, bury the dead, and connect the dots in a mystery that is growing darker by the day. In a world of bad luck and trouble, when someone targets Jack Reacher and his team, they'd better be ready for what comes right back at them.

    Would you listen to Bad Luck and Trouble again? Why?

    This was a great twist to the typical Reacher story to have him working with his old team.
