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.

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
"Restored my faith in the Jack Reacher series"
I didn't enjoy the last book in this series, which I'm going through in order. This one wax excellent. Gripping from start to finish. Recommended
"Great listen as always"
These books are so good! Great thrill start to finish. Recommend to anyone looking for a great listen.
"Another great book from Lee child"
I listen to audible everyday to and from and have listened from the start of the series next book please
Just what I want from a reacher novel. Love it.
The Hard Way
Jeff Harding's voice is what I imagine Reachers to be.
Yes if I had the time to.
"still enjoying the series"
great books, some a lot better than others but all worth a listen so far.
Reacher just gets better! Child's ability to keep me gripped hasn't stopped. 61 hours is my favourite Child book yet!
"Okay, but not the best Reacher"
You'll enjoy they book. Hell, it's Reacher. But for me it was the most predictable Reacher yet. Usually, the story twists leave me guessing and on the edge of my seat, but not this time.
This is however an essential read to learn more about Reacher's childhood and the later days in the army. It's almost like the author knew he had to add some meat to the stew after pulling the story together.
I'm going through the Reacher books in order so it hasn't put me off; I'm still eager for the next book, however I think I'll listen to another author before continuing.
Reacher is god! another great story from lee child formulaic but what the hell. a six year old with a switchblade.... Really!
