Deep Down: A Jack Reacher Short Story | [Lee Child]

Deep Down: A Jack Reacher Short Story

An original short story about Jack Reacher, available exclusively in digital format (ebook and audio), following the success of last year's "Second Son". Early in his military career, Jack Reacher is ordered undercover in Washington, to discover which one of four women, all staff officers on fast track careers, is leaking secrets. The suggested method: get close to each in turn. The obvious problem: the most receptive will be the guilty one, with an agenda of her own - to kill the investigation ... and the investigator.

    I am an avid reader and listener of books and audiobooks. I love my new Kindle as I can enjoy both mediums! I live in Australia and love thrillers!

    Story
    "I Wish Was A Full Novel!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend it if they liked a short story, however, I felt ripped off as I became engaged with the book and the story and the excellent narration,but then the book finished before I knew it! Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!


    Would you be willing to try another book from Lee Child? Why or why not?

    I would read another book by Lee Child and have, but not another short story, because the novel gives you a chance to enter into the bigger story, while the short story gets you in and pulls the rug from under you.


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

    Yes. An outstanding narrator and well worth listening to future stories narrated by this narrator.


    Did Deep Down inspire you to do anything?

    Find a full novel by Lee Child.


    Any additional comments?

    Lee Child in conjunction with Kerry Shale will taunt you by getting you into the short story. They get you excited and engaged in the story and then bring you crashing down as you realise the story has ended and you need to find another novel or audiobook! Hopefully it was as good as this story before the rug was ripped from under me!

    Story
    "Compacent and disappointing"
    What would have made Deep Down better?

    A plot. This isn't as idiotic as "not a drill" but still a third class efford from Lee Child.


    What was most disappointing about Lee Child’s story?

    The whole thing could have been developed into a decent book, but as it was the plot seems incomplete and full of holes, and none of the charactors are developed. The whole thing is short and expensive for what it is.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment, feeling that as a reader we are being taken advantage of.


    Any additional comments?

    A short story can be an absolute joy if the the distilled essence of a story is masterfully told and elegantly presented. This just has the flavour of an author who, now he's signed a hollywood book deal, doesn't feel the need to try anymore. Next thing you know he'll be co-writing his books with some unknown hack just like that other prize pratt Clive Cussler who now writes with his son whom he named after his lead character. Al least Lee Child doesn't make cameo appearances in his own books like Cussler, but it's a slippery slope Lee Child, so buck your ideas up!
