Winter in South Dakota. Blowing snow, icy roads, a tired driver. A bus skids and crashes and is stranded in a gathering storm.
There's a small town 20 miles away, where a vulnerable witness is guarded around the clock. There's a strange stone building five miles further on, all alone on the prairie. There's a ruthless man who controls everything from the warmth of Mexico.
Jack Reacher hitched a ride in the back of the bus. A life without baggage has many advantages. And crucial disadvantages too, when it means facing the arctic cold without a coat. But he's equipped for the rest of his task. He doesn't want to put the world to rights. He just doesn’t like people who put it to wrongs.

"I enjoy Jack Reacher but"
I think I've listened to far too many, and they are all getting a bit tiresome. 61 is an enjoyable novel and on par with any of the others.
Jeff Harding brings Reacher back to life again in this thriller consisting of suspense, treachery and the unexpected. Just can't get enough! Brilliant!!!
"Return to form"
Thankfully this a return to form for Lee Childs I was beginning to worry after the previous two books.
"Does not disappoint!"
Another classic Reacher yarn JR fans will not be disappointed good plot fabulous narrative GREAT!
"As always from Lee Child, this is a great read."
Lots going on but makes a great read. I always cannot wait to finish and move onto the next one as I enjoy this series so much.
This is my third Jack Reacher listen. While its a great entertaining story its not his best. As usual Jeff Harding does a great narration job. I sent back one other Reacher novel as the naration was really terrible. Getting the right performer to do the narration is just so key. While the story is complex and the characters are well constructed it feels at times to be just too contrived. He does however manage to slot in some really touching and insightful scenes, like the one between Reacher and the old Lady. The main protagonist does not work for me along with the whole nature of the final chapter, it just feels a bit like overkill. But in the end thats just my opinion for what its worth and I still enjoyed it none the less.
"brilliant should be a film"
loved it like all the others, can't wait for the next unabridged versions next on my list
