Deep Down: A Jack Reacher Story

Summoned by Military Intelligence to Washington, D.C., Reacher is sent undercover. The assignment that awaits him: The army is meeting with its Capitol Hill paymasters for classified talks on a new, state-of-the-art sniper rifle for U.S. forces. But vital details about the weapon are leaking - straight from the Capitol and probably into the hands of unidentified foreign arms dealers.

Publisher's Summary

Summoned by Military Intelligence to Washington, D.C., Reacher is sent undercover. The assignment that awaits him: The army is meeting with its Capitol Hill paymasters for classified talks on a new, state-of-the-art sniper rifle for U.S. forces. But vital details about the weapon are leaking - straight from the Capitol and probably into the hands of unidentified foreign arms dealers. The prospect of any and every terrorist, mercenary, or dictator’s militia getting their hands on the latest superior firepower is unthinkable. That’s where Reacher comes in. His task: infiltrate the top-secret proceedings and smoke out the mole. His target: a quartet of high-powered Army political liaison officers - all of them fast-track women on their way to the top.

According to his bosses, it’s a zero-danger mission. No need to draw a gun...just chat over drinks. But Reacher knows that things are rarely what they seem. And he’s learned the hard way never to underestimate an opponent. Or four. Lessons that will come in handy when he starts digging for the truth - and gets his hands a lot dirtier than he expected.

    Story
    "Like the inside of a cinnamon roll"

    Sometimes just a little bit is what you are in the mood for. You know, when you don't want the whole cinnamon roll, you just want the best part, the soft gooey center. That's how this Reacher short story is, it's the best of Reacher just bite size.

    This short story is great, really great. It is Reacher in all his glory, great action, great attitude, and as usual, he's smarter than everyone around him. He's the great reluctant hero.

    Thank you Dick Hill, your narration was perfect as always.

    Make sure you don't use a credit for this since the price is only around $2.

    Story
    "Not up to the usual Jack Reacher"

    I thought this book would be better than it was. I am a fan of Lee Child. The storyline was boring and flat. I kept waiting for something to happen, but it didn't. Of all the Lee Child books I have read or listened to, this was the least interesting.

    "A Super Short Story!"

    This is neither abridged nor unabridged. It is simply a very short-short "sample" of Jack Reacher and his abilities of observation and deduction. I am a long-time Lee Child and Jack Reacher fan. Nevertheless, this story is so short that it's hardly worth a review because there is not much that can be said without saying too much. I agree with the other reviewers who disliked the shortness of the novel and I agree that there is a lot missing in the development of characters and the development of the storyline/plot that would have provided clearer answers as to the ending and "why" of the story. I also agree that this one is not worth a credit, but I bought thru one of audible's special offers (1.95). As usual, Dick Hill does a superb performance job.

    Story
    "2 hours I won't get back"

    Wow, what a waste of time. Dump story, edited down to the point of being nearly incoherent. This is the unabridged version? It listens like a Reader's Digest version of what could have (and should have) been a much longer and better book. Don't waste your money or credits on this one.

    "A "Fix" for Reacher Fans"

    A good short story for fans of the series. A bit predictable but still worth the time.

    Story
    "Reacher quickly solves a mystery."

    Reacher is in the Army. He is asked to do some undercover investigation. He easily puts the pieces together, identifies an information leak, thwarts the tough guys, and returns to his post.

    Again, Dick Hill is perfect for this series.

    "Save your time, save your money"

    I am stealing another review here because is was exactly what I wanted to say...

    Wow, what a waste of time. Dumb story, edited down to the point of being nearly incoherent. This is the unabridged version? It listens like a Reader's Digest version of what could have (and should have) been a much longer and better book. Don't waste your money or credits on this one.

    "disappointed"
    What disappointed you about Deep Down?

    wasted a credit on such a short story, the next time I will pay more attention I did not realize it was a short story.
