    A tour bus crashes in a savage snowstorm and lands Jack Reacher in the middle of a deadly confrontation. In nearby Bolton, South Dakota, one brave woman is standing up for justice in a small town threatened by sinister forces. If she's going to live long enough to testify, she'll need help. Because a killer is coming to Bolton, a coldly proficient assassin who never misses.

    Overall

    I like Jack Reacher books and sometimes I like cliffhangers. This time I feel like I invested a lot of time into the book, only to get a stupid cliffhanger ending. I recommending waiting to listen to this book until Part 2 is available this fall.

    MacKayla Lane was just a child when she and her sister, Alina, were given up for adoption and banished from Ireland forever. Twenty years later, Alina is dead and Mac has returned to the country that expelled them to hunt her sister’s murderer. But after discovering that she descends from a bloodline both gifted and cursed, Mac is plunged into a secret history: an ancient conflict between humans and immortals who have lived concealed among us for thousands of years.

    "21 people listened to a 19 hr book in <12 hrs?"
    Overall

    I have been anxiously awaiting this book after the huge cliffhanger in the last book, but on the day it was published I checked the reviews. There were 21 people on the first day giving it 5 stars. Really? For a book that is 19 hrs long? Sounds like an overdone marketing campaign to me. Since I had been waiting so long for the book, I decided to read it anyway. I liked it, but I was going to give it 1 star just out of protest. Instead, I decided to give it the score it deserved and add this comment. This book did wrap up a lot of outstanding items and but it certainly isn't the most amazing book I have ever listened to. I would have liked it better with some better editing. This easily could have been 10-12 hrs rather than 19. If I had been reading rather than listening, I would have skipped over huge sections. Maybe that is what the 21 reviewers did, but if so, how could they give it 5 stars?
