When you're as big and rough as Jack Reacher - and you have a badly-set, freshly-busted nose patched with silver duct tape - it isn't easy to hitch a ride. But Reacher has some unfinished business in Virginia, so he doesn't quit. And at last, he's picked up by three strangers - two men and a woman. But within minutes it becomes clear they're all lying about everything - and then they run into a police roadblock on the highway. There has been an incident, and the cops are looking for the bad guys....
Will they get through because the three are innocent? Or because the three are now four? Is Reacher just a decoy?
With his signature Swiss-watch plotting and heart-thumping suspense, A Wanted Man shows Lee Child at his sublimely skilful best.

Right up there, probably the best so far.
Excellent plot . This one totally changes as you go along. One of Lee Child's best in my view. He seems to be getting better each time. So looking forward to the next one.
Jeff Harding is my favorite reader. He has the ability to capture all the different voices with total conviction. You forget about the reader and are swept along by the personalities of the different characters. Keep it up Jeff.
Yes, absolutely. Totally absorbed in story. Loved the changes in the plot. Needed to listen non stop.
Lee Child always my favorite. May Jack Reacher never age or change as he is one in a million.
Not Lee Childs best work. Reacher has been my favour character for years but this was a dull & boring book. I am very glad that I read all the other Reacher books before Tom Cruise was chosen to portray the character. Every now and then one pictures the diminutive Tom Cruise wearing lifts as Reacher.... it does not help
All in all:
Classic Lee Child writing.
Classic Jack Reacher banging heads.
Classic Jeff Harding narration.
Jeff Harding is as much a legend as Jack Reacher! He truly brings the character to life. Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Lee Child strikes again!
"One of the best so far"
I love these novels and this is one of the best so far. Of course it's all nonsense, but it's perfect escapist fun.
Jeff Harding is brilliant as ever.
"Reacher. a true man's hero"
As always. The reacher story keeps you on the edge of your seat. love it every time
Decent... Read better but my Reacher expectations are pretty high. This one is definately worth a listen. Do like the link to the previous episode. About to jump on the next one.
Very gripping, keeps you on the edge receipt for the whole book. So much to read. Sad in places to and very charming
"A Wanted Man"
I nearly did not listen to this book owing to bad reviews! I have been reminded not to act solely on the views of others especially since they were heavily negative. Why would Lee Childs write a bad book I asked myself? Anyway I decided to ignore the thoughts of others and listen to it myself! I enjoyed it! The storyline was a little weak in places but altogether the book is worth reading/listening to. David S
"Another great Jack Reacher book"
Unusually 61 Hours, Worth Dying for and A Wanted Man all follow in quick succession in Jack Reachers life, the Affair is slipped in between the latter two as a historical story, but until this point each book (excluding the novels set in Reachers Army days) have usually been set about 6-12 months apart, I guess Jack is getting on in years and Lee was possibly mindful of his hero getting a bit too old for some of his adventures.... Ok maybe not... But this means you need to read these in this order as it tells the Story of Jacks adventures while trying to get to Virginia, won't spoil the reason why but they are all excellent, looking forward to what appears to be the conclusion in Never go back, can't wait!
"Well done Lee Childs"
As it says on the tin. Excellent story and reader. Keep up the good work.
yes here we are again another good story written well as usual and a very good narration as well just the same as always '' can't wait for the next one which I have and going to list to know
