    A public plaza in Indiana. Five people are killed in cold blood, shot through the head. But he leaves a perfect trail of evidence behind him, and soon the local police chief tracks him down. After his arrest, the shooter's only words are, 'Get Jack Reacher for me.' What could possibly connect this psychopath and the wandering dropout ex army cop?Critics call Lee Child's thriller series 'addictive', so here is our annual, much-longed for, Reacher fix.

    Suspense all the way and a satisfying conclusion. Although a little unbelievable, in that Reacher always wins, it is the path to that victory that ultimately draws in the reader/listener. You want to know how he works things out, why he becomes involved... Reacher is, basically, a very likeable character, a 'goodie'. And Jeff Harding is a great listen.

    Story

    This author had been recommended by a friend who has read quite a few of his books. I decided to purchase one as an audible. The narration was so slow I quickly became bored. I guess I haven't really given the author a fair go, but I couldn't even get past the first chapter. So much depends on the voice in audio -- pace, pitch, intonation ..... When James Bryce went into character mode, he was much better.
