    When a woman is kidnapped off a Chicago street in broad daylight, Jack Reacher's in the wrong place at the wrong time. He's kidnapped with her. Chained together and racing across America toward an unknown destination, they're at the mercy of a group of men demanding an impossible ransom. Because Reacher's female companion is worth more than he imagines. Now he has to save them both - from the inside out - or die trying....

    I agree with some of the other reviewers that Dick Hill is the "real" Jack Reacher, and I have listened to both versions of this book. I have to say that Jonathan McClain does a great job with the non-Reacher characters, and his version of Reacher is certainly acceptable. I wouldn't hesitate to buy the book due to the narrator and actually think that he did a great job with the main villain. The story is one of the better Reacher stories, even if a certain degree of suspension disbelief is necessary. If you're a fan of the series or if you love thrillers of the Flynn, Clancy, Thor ilk, I think you'll enjoy this one.

    Shadows are falling on the usually festive Christmas season for Chief Inspector Armand Gamache. When Gamache receives a message from Myrna Landers that a longtime friend has failed to arrive for Christmas in the village of Three Pines, he welcomes the chance to get away from the city. Gamache soon discovers the missing woman was once one of the most famous people not just in North America, but in the world, and now goes unrecognized by virtually everyone. As events come to a head, Gamache is drawn ever deeper into the world of Three Pines.

    Story

    I doubt that any fans of Louise Penny would disagree with the notion that Ralph Cosham is a perfect reader for the series. To me, there's no doubt that he's great. What distressed me was the fear that the last book represented Penny's "jumping the shark" and that we'd be left with an insipid shadow of the previous books in her future work.

    I now feel that I misjudged her and that she truly tied up the strings of the last four books in this excellent and compelling story. Although I thought that the actions of the characters in the last book were not well developed, the story truly comes together in a gripping and even thrilling episode. I believe that I enjoyed this book more than any other audio book out this year, and this has been a good year. I give it my highest marks.
