    Story

    Mysterious men have a way of showing up in Stephanie Plum's apartment. When the shadowy Diesel appears, he has a task for Stephanie - and he's not taking no for an answer. Annie Hart is a "relationship expert" who is wanted for armed robbery and assault with a deadly weapon. Stephanie needs to find her, fast. Diesel knows where she is. So they make a deal: he'll help her get Annie if Stephanie plays matchmaker to several of Annie's most difficult clients.

    Overall

    REALLY disappointing... I read or listened to the Plum books from the beginning, in order, last year. I was eagerly looking forward to this, but I feel so let down.
    Maybe a book was due and needed to be in by the deadline. Sort of seems that way...

    Story
    (1964)

    "You can leave the army, but the army doesn’t leave you. Not always. Not completely," notes Jack Reacher - and sure enough, the retired military cop is soon pulled back into service. This time, for the State Department and the CIA. Someone has taken a shot at the president of France in the City of Light. The bullet was American. The distance between the gunman and the target was exceptional. How many snipers can shoot from three-quarters of a mile with total confidence? Very few, but John Kott - an American marksman gone bad - is one of them...

    Story
    What disappointed you about Personal?

    I will echo what reviewers before me have noted. The story is weak. It's almost like it was written by someone else. The performance is weak. Has Dick Hill been ill? His voice is weak and just doesn't have that REACHER strength to it.


    Has Personal turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    What didn’t you like about Dick Hill’s performance?

    It was just sub par.


    What character would you cut from Personal?

    Pretty much all of them. They didn't ring true. They were not fleshed out or believable.


    Any additional comments?

    I sure hope this was an aberration, and the real Jack and a real story return in the next one.
