In the next few tense seconds, Reacher will make a choice and trigger an electrifying chain of events in this gritty, gripping masterwork of suspense by #1 New York Times best seller Lee Child.
Susan Mark was the fifth passenger. She had a lonely heart, an estranged son, and a big secret. Reacher, working with a woman cop and a host of shadowy feds, wants to know just how big a hole Susan Mark was in, how many lives had already been twisted before hers, and what danger is looming around him now.
Because a race has begun through the streets of Manhattan in a maze crowded with violent, skilled soldiers on all sides of a shadow war. Susan Mark's plain little life was critical to dozens of others in Washington, California, Afghanistan...from a former Delta Force operator now running for the U.S. Senate, to a beautiful young woman with a fantastic story to tell and to a host of others who have just one thing in common: They're all lying to Reacher. A little. A lot. Or maybe just enough to get him killed.
In a novel that slams through one hairpin surprise after another, Lee Child unleashes a thriller that spans three decades and gnaws at the heart of America...and for Jack Reacher, a man who trusts no one and likes it that way, it's a mystery with only one answer: the kind that comes when you finally get face-to-face and look your worst enemy in the eye.
Take another thrill ride with Jack Reacher.

I really like to read, and when I discovered I could get things done while listening to my favorite books, it was a light bulb moment.
I didn't like the voice of the reader. He sounded like some gangster, and my husband and I had to turn the volume off when the violence got too graphic to listen to. I didn't love it.
Cut the graphic violence.
Get a reader who sounded more like the character should be.
All of the Reacher novels seem to be similar but they are enertaining and I have read them all.
