Publisher's Summary

New York City. Two in the morning. A subway car heading uptown. Jack Reacher, plus five other passengers. Four are okay. The fifth isn't.

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.

    Story
    "With One Exception"

    I found this to be a great listen almost all the way through; then one scene has Reacher pulling a move of such colossal ignorance that it briefly ruined the entire lead up to this climatic scene. Though Child attempts to explain the mistake away it still comes off as a highly improbable mistake from a fighting man of Reacher's caliber.
    With that stipulation out of the way I found this to be an excellent listening experience as a good comeback from the dreadful Nothing To Lose. Though the villain and the force behind all the subsequent events come to light halfway through the book there is suspense leading up to the final scene. Given the weakness I've already alluded to leading up to the dramatic ending; it was still quite satisfying to see the ruthless killers get their comeuppance. The look back at the Russians fighting in Afghanistan was interesting; as was the politician hoping to avoid a past mistake coming to light. without that one huge mistake this was easily a five star rating; even with it overall this work is still a five.

    "The old Reacher is back"

    After hating the last novel, Nothing to Lose, Reacher is back in this novel; well at least he's closer to his old self. I liked the story and narration and the action was first rate. Give me more of this!

    "Too much of too little"

    I haven't finished this yet, but I must say I'm very frustrated with the book. I'm thinking about skipping to the last chapter or two just to find out what happens--and I NEVER do that. Pace is slow, too much detail. Taking waaaay too long to tell the story and it meanders hither and yon. If this guy is a super duper smarty pants, he's awfully stupid and makes decisions that defy common sense. Very frustrated with the whole book.

    "I think I might just be half in love with Jack"

    Gotta love a great book and a great character. I am not one of your jaded snooty listeners I just love a good yarn and anything Dick Hill reads comes to life before your very ears. I could listen to Jack Reacher novels every day and never get bored. Keep them coming.

    "Excellent"

    Like many other reviewers I love the Reacher character created by Childs and this is the best of the three Reacher books I have listened to so far. What makes the character work for me is the reading by Dick Hill. He IS Jack Reacher. He makes the character come alive. I know it's not about the narrator, but I have enjoyed just about any book read by him.

    That being said this book had it all. Great plot (very believable), solid character development, and the usual twist and turns provided by Childs that make him one of my favorite authors. He has a unique way of letting you know just enough of what Reacher is thinking versus what he is doing to keep you wondering what's next. I couldn’t wait to make the drive to and from work each day.

    If you like the Reacher books, this is a must read, if you have read none, this is a good first one to get your feet wet. Childs does a great job of bringing you up to speed on the main character so you know enough without needing to read past books.

    I hope this is not the last Reacher book because I am already looking forward to the next one.

    Story
    "A New York state of Jack Reacher"

    Gone Tomorrow is Lee Child's 13th Jack Reacher novel. Riding the subway in New City, Jack eyes a passenger giving off all signs of a terrorist bomber. When Jack attempts to talk with her, she kills herself with a handgun. What ensues is a complex hunt by a nebulous Federal agency, the New York City police, a private security firm, and shadowy foreign nationals all searching for answers and a memory stick of unknown significance with Jack the center of everyone's attention.

    This edition has the classic Jack Reacher both in terms of solid detective work as well as physical and weapons combat. The plot doesn't actually unfold as much as branch out and evolve in different directions. At the same time, Jack seems to be fighting nearly all sides with alliances continual forming and dissolving.

    Dick Hill's narration is another gem. His rendition of Jack Reacher is spot on and his range of voices is superb. His tone and pacing is perfectly aligned with the fast pace and nonstop action that makes for a quick, but eminently satisfying listen.

    "Total political hack job, and worst Lee Child plot"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Different plot, no obsession with trashing Iraq War


    Has Gone Tomorrow turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Have enjoyed the rest of the series and will continue reading.


    Have you listened to any of Dick Hill’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Dick Hill is consistent


    What character would you cut from Gone Tomorrow?

    A Reacher with no commitment to duty.

    Story
    "Not the best of Lee Child"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you like Lee Child I would recommend it especially because the narrator is great but the story is just okay.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Lee Child? Why or why not?

    For now, I think I've had enough of Jack Reacher series.


    What does Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Dick Hill makes the story come alive and having gotten used to his voice it's as if Lee Child was telling me the story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not really.

    Story
    "This was good. I like the Reacher series."

    When I’m done with one, I’m eager for the next. Some of the other Reacher stories didn’t have the thriller element. They were solving a mystery with some action. I prefer thrillers like this one - meaning we are in the heads of the bad guys and watch them as they try to hurt Reacher and others. I enjoy the series. You need to suspend disbelief at times. This is almost like a comic book super hero. I have these short bursts of laughter when I hear some of Reacher’s macho dialogue. It’s fun. I like hanging out with him.

    The narrator Dick Hill was very good.

    The ending was feel good and satisfying.

    "Good but not his best"

    I love the Jack Reacher stories. I especially like the reader for the stories. Makes the stories that much more grittier. This story line took a long, long time to develop. Prepare yourself to wait a while until you get to who the bad guys are and what they are doing.
