Reacher is back! A Wanted Man is a new masterpiece of suspense - from number-one New York Times best-selling author Lee Child.
Four people in a car, hoping to make Chicago by morning. One man driving, eyes on the road. Another man next to him, telling stories that don’t add up. A woman in the back, silent and worried. And next to her, a huge man with a broken nose, hitching a ride east to Virginia.
An hour behind them, a man lies stabbed to death in an old pumping station. He was seen going in with two others, but he never came out. He has been executed, the knife work professional, the killers vanished. Within minutes, the police are notified. Within hours, the FBI descends, laying claim to the victim without ever saying who he was or why he was there.
All Reacher wanted was a ride to Virginia. All he did was stick out his thumb. But he soon discovers he has hitched more than a ride. He has tied himself to a massive conspiracy that makes him a threat - to both sides at once.
In Lee Child’s white-hot thriller, nothing is what it seems, and nobody is telling the truth. As the tension rises, the twists come fast and furious, keeping readers guessing and gasping until the explosive finale.

"Jack Reacher is much more like the heir to the Op and Marlowe than Spenser ever was." (Esquire)
"Indisputably the best escape artist in this escapist genre." (Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times)
"Lee Child [is] the current poster-boy of American crime fiction." (Los Angeles Times)
Did not read the book. The audio let you know about his nose. Reading the book you would miss some of those details.
Jack Reacher. Always the best.
Approaching the hidden building.
Another thriller by Jack Reacher.
Tom Cruise should not be Jack. He is too short, and does not fit the image I have of Jack.
love the narrator voice and inflection...worth listening...Reacher is tops
average Lee Child...a bit out there at times, but entertaining
the car ride where Reacher is using eye blinks to communicate and his time with Sorrenson
Russel Crow, julliette Moore
great narration, story is a bit out there at times, but engaging
Speaker, Coach, Author - in Reno, NV (A GREAT place!) I've been an avid Audible fan for several years. Listen on my iPhone many hours each week.
I have read or listened to every single book in this series. Once again, Lee Child continues the story of Jack Reacher. I love these books. Certainly, if you've been reading any of the previous 16 books about Reacher (I can't believe there have been that many), you'll love this one, too.
I heard that Tom Cruise is playing Jack Reacher in an upcoming movie. Ridiculous. I have my image of Jack Reacher and he sure as he__ isn't anything like Cruise.
And what can you say about Dick Hill - he is the voice of these books. If he ever stops narrating them, I'll go back to the printed page, but if he narrates, I prefer him reading/telling/being the story.
Few authors can hook you quicker than Lee Child, the opening scene usually has Reacher observing something that's not quite right, something with huge implications. Then Reacher uses his powers of observation to solve the mystery as the story unfolds. While there are a couple of big action scenes, and some surprises, this book is more about the mystery and the characters, and it kept me listening intently all the way through. I enjoyed this one a lot more than the last one "The Affair".
The end, which was more exciting than the rest of the novel.
Want to know if, when, and how Reacher gets his nose fixed. Don't envy the narrator to sound like that throughout the story.
Audio for me is better since being blind print books are worthless.
I would recommend it for those who already enjoy Child's work, but not as a first time Child reading selection.
The narrator is quite good, and I greatly enjoy listening to him.
I love this series, but sadly Wanted just didn't have the same riveting plot I've come to expect from the author. It just seemed like he was putting out another novel, instead of really putting his all into it like prior books.
For Reacher fans, you can read the Abridged version and get all you need from this book.
Dick Hill does a good job, but gets bogged down when there are more than two women that he has to narrate. I would be more selective on my purchases from Lee Child.
The books has some good moments, but Reacher needs to mature a little. He can not keep on without developing new interests, and on occasion staying in one place for more than a week. It gets too repetitive.
The narration was good.
This is a 3 star book, not the 4 that I have seen. I guess I have become jus too familiar with the plot lines from his previous books.
Jack Reach is an interesting character but seems to have stagnated. We need more development and some different situations. Time to buy some toothpaste and get a breath of fresh air.
Great character development
Quit listening as words were just added to make the book of greater length.Was he getting paid by the the word? Loved the character - hated the boring repeating of known facts. I have read MANY other Reacher books but I wish I had not bought this book.
