    Reacher is hitching through the heat of West Texas and getting desperate for a ride. The last thing he's worried about is exactly who picks him up.

    She's called Carmen. She's a good-looking young woman, she has a beautiful little girl...and she has married into the wrong family. They're called the Greers. They're a bitter and miserly clan, and they've made her life a living hell. Worse, her monster of a husband is soon due out of prison. So she needs protection, and she needs it now.

    Lawyers can't help. Cops can't be trusted. So Reacher goes home with her to the lonely ranch where nothing is as it seems, and where evil swirls around them like dust in a storm. Within days, Carmen's husband is dead - and simmering secrets send Echo, Texas, up in flames.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I felt the first 4 hours was a waste of time and could have been summed up in half the time. When the story really began to pick up it become predictable especially since Jack had all the answers. I love the series so this will not stop me from continuing to love the series but this is the proverbial bump in the road. Keep listening and reading!


    What was most disappointing about Lee Child’s story?

    Very slow beginning and not sticking with the true Jack.


    What three words best describe Dick Hill’s performance?

    I Love Dick Hill period.

    Story
    (1883)

    Jack Reacher is approached by a Secret Service agent who needs a favor. "I want to hire you to assassinate the Vice President of the United States," she asks. She is the newly appointed head of the VP's security detail and wants Reacher to try to penetrate her team's shield. He has the skills and the stealth and no one knows him. How else can she be sure her protection is truly effective?

    Joseph says: "Series is getting better."
    "Mr. Child not your best."

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend this book to anyone due to the extremely bad reason for the entire novel. You learn a lot about the secret service but the motive in this story was completely unbelievable and ridiculous. Not his best work at all.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lee Child again?

    Yes I would listen to Lee Child again as he is a great writer.


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

    Dick Hill is one of the best narrators in the business.


    Did Without Fail inspire you to do anything?

    No....I felt the story up until the motive of the crime behind the entire story was revealed was pretty good. The motive made me feel like I wasted a lot of my time. I am still shaking my head.


    Any additional comments?

    No his best but that will not stop me from reading more.
