Because Reacher's female companion is worth more than he imagines. Now he has to save them both - from the inside out - or die trying....

Audible fan!...Why didn't I discover audiobooks sooner? I would rather listen than watch.
Is it possible Lee Child is clairvoyant? Perhaps he saw the Bundy clan in his crystal ball. It is true they did not kidnap anyone but they are nut-jobs just like the bad guys in this book.
I really like Dick Hill who is the current narrator on this series, and had a really hard time listening to Johnathan NcClain. I think he'd be good for other books, but he just doesn't have the vibe of Reacher down like Dick Hill does. I wish they would just have Dick Hill redo them.
Lee Child did a wonderful job crafting this second book of the Jack Reacher series.
If I had read the book, I would not have put it down before finishing it; as it was, my device was going almost straight through until I the story was finished. It was an incredible story.
I highly recommend the story, the performance, and the series.
the way that the story started coming out was very interesting classic Jack Reacher. part of it got a little too wordy but rounded out okay.
The storyline is very suspenseful from the first page.
John Grisham's "A Time to Kill" is the first thing that comes to mind and I don't know why. On second thought, Alfred Hitchcock's "North by Northwest".
How DIDN'T the narrator detract from the book? His delivery is monotone. Deplorable performance. What a total let down after Dick Hill's beautiful voice in "The Killing Floor." Were this not a really good story I would have stopped listening altogether.
The Jack Reacher series is extensive. Despite the narrator Book 2 is better than Book 1 and I loved that. Book 3 is on my horizon...
Decent Jack Reacher story not the best, but not the worst.
The narrator was terrible. Johnathan McClain was so bad, so terrible I couldn't help but laugh at times. He has about 4 voices in his arsenal, they're all awful. Sometimes he would assign a character a particular accent or tone of voice or manner of speech etc. Then just drop it half way thru. He was so bad, that I couldn't stop listening. I needed a good laugh and got it.
