    March 1997. A woman has her throat cut behind a bar in Carter Crossing, Mississippi. Just down the road is a big army base.Is the murderer a local guy - or is he a soldier?Jack Reacher, still a major in the military police, is sent in undercover. The county sheriff is a former U.S. Marine - and a stunningly beautiful woman. Her investigation is going nowhere. Is the Pentagon stonewalling her? Or doesn't she really want to find the killer? The adrenaline-pumping, high-voltage action in The Affair is set just six months before the opening of Killing Floor....

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Affair the most enjoyable?

    Suspense gripped me from the first line when the scene is set for the eventual confrontation between Reacher and Colonel Franklin. What also kept the read enjoyable was that the suspect seemed obvious until everything is brought to light in an enthralling climax.


    What other book might you compare The Affair to and why?

    Lee Child's The Visitor because the perpetrator worked for the FBI, an arm of state security, as Colonel Franklin worked for the military in The Affair. .


    What does Jeff Harding bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Jeff Harding, being american, brings strength to the Reacher character and makes him believably american even though Reacher grew up on different army bases all around the world.


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

    The deep social divide between rich and poor and perception of justice in communities on either side of the tracks moved me throughout the story.


    Any additional comments?

    The gruesome way the women were murdered in the story may outrage sensitive listeners, but the message is that power hunger can be very cruel and must be seen in that context. The passion scenes only spice up the story and nothing more as there is clearly no future commitment.
