    Six shots. Five dead. One heartland city thrown into a state of terror. But within hours the cops have it solved: a slam-dunk case. Except for one thing. The accused man says: "You got the wrong guy". Then he says: "Get Reacher for me". And sure enough, from the world he lives in - no phone, no address, no commitments - ex-military investigator Jack Reacher is coming. In Lee Child's astonishing thriller, Reacher's arrival will change everything - about a case that isn't what it seems, about lives tangled in baffling ways, about a killer who missed one shot - and by doing so gives Jack Reacher one shot at the truth.

    What did you love best about One Shot?

    As in all the Jack Reacher books, the plot is well thought out and never fails to deliver a unique ending.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of One Shot?

    Reacher's assault on the fortified house of villains.


    Have you listened to any of Dick Hill’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Always excellent. Dick Hill is Jack Reacher.


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

    It's the combination of pace, plot, and characters throughout the story that keep you tuned in.


    Any additional comments?

    Bravo Lee Child, Bravo Dick Hill, Bravo Jack Reacher!

    Would you try another book from Dick Couch and George Galdorisi and/or Steven Weber?

    No


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Lee Child


    Did Steven Weber do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes, good definition and character build-out


    Could you see Tom Clancy Presents: Act of Valor being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Of course


    Any additional comments?

    This is just one more of the Clancy formula novels. The details were well placed but the story line is wearing thin.

    Story
    (145)

    On Parrish Island, a restricted island off the coast of Virginia, is a little-known and never-visited psychiatric facility. There, the government stores former intelligence employees whose psychiatric states make them a danger to their own government, people whose ramblings might endanger ongoing operations or prove dangerously inconvenient. One of these employees, agent Hal Ambler, is kept heavily medicated and closely watched. But there's one difference between Hal and the other patients, Hal isn't crazy.

    Overall

    I have loved Robert Ludlum novels since my introduction to his writing in the early 80's. I have travelled to exotic locales, fought enemies of mankind, and loved with all the passion of his characters as they triumphed in their pursuits. But, the Ambler Warning is an utter disappointment. Be warned, this is not up to the character or caliber of Robert Ludlum. Perhaps he has lost his touch.
