    Jack Ryan, who has just been named CIA deputy director of intelligence, is enraged when he discovers that he has been left out of the loop of Columbian operations. Several of America's most highly trained soldiers are stranded on an unfinished mission that, according to all records, never existed. Ryan decides to get the men out.

    Story

    J. Charles does not change his voice to distinguish between characters. He reads too fast to understand. I haven't read the other version with a different narrator but can still confidently recommend it over this one.

    Jungles come in many forms. There are the steamy rain forests of the Burmese highlands. There are the lies and betrayals of the world of covert operations. And there are the dark and twisted thoughts of a man bent on near-global domination. To pull off their latest mission, Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon must survive them all.

    I missed the original voice of the crew of the Oregon. Hope Scott Brick returns for future installments.

    Oslo in November. The first snow of the season has fallen. A boy named Jonas wakes in the night to find his mother gone. Out his window, in the cold moonlight, he sees the snowman that inexplicably appeared in the yard earlier in the day. Around its neck is his mother’s pink scarf. Hole suspects a link between a menacing letter he’s received and the disappearance of Jonas’s mother - and of perhaps a dozen other women, all of whom went missing on the day of a first snowfall. As his investigation deepens, something else emerges: he is becoming a pawn....

    Anita says: "many layered thriller"

    Story

    So boring. I've listened to hundreds of audiobooks and never before felt compelled to leave a bad review. This story and narrator were just so mind-numbing. I hope to save another listener from wasting their credit based on Micheal Connelly's (or anyone else's) recommendation of this novel. I wish audible had a buyback policy for lemons like this.

    Story

    In a Chicago suburb, a dentist is met in his office parking lot by three men and ordered into the trunk of his Lexus. On a downtown sidewalk, Jack Reacher and an unknown woman are abducted in broad daylight by two men - practiced and confident - who stop them at gunpoint and hustle them into the same sedan.

    Story

    I love Reacher novels. Of the 4 I've read, this is the only one I don't like. My chief complaint is that Jack Reacher isn't even in it (not the Reacher I know, anyway). Reacher is a hostage throughout the entire story and can't seem to escape the clutches of an inept enemy. It is quite frustrating. I wanted him to kick butt the whole time, but there was very little action. It's like watching "Meet the Parents", but without the funny to make it worth the frustration.
