If it had a story to tell other than looking for Jack Reacher. A little action and intrigue would also have been good.
That there was no story.
When the prospect of "seeing" Lt Summer again was first raised. That was short-lived. Summer was dangled as a coming treat in such a way that it soon became obvious it would never happen. How and why I won't write here in case a reader of this decides to listen anyway, but it wasn't exciting.
Disappointment. Lee Child can't possible write Jack Reacher stories fast enough. Finding this series was thrilling - it seemed like a good idea. I could not finish the story - got halfway through and was still waiting for something to happen. Boring and disappointing.
I rated the performance 3 stars as the narrator reads well - though her male voices were all alike - slow and raspy - but that probably would have be a minor thing if the story was any good.
I liked this book better than I had the previous "Search for Reacher" books. However, I'm not sure I like the overall approach. Not that there's anything wrong with the story or the way it's told. I guess I picked these up expecting a traditional Reacher style story. The stories are a pretty good third-party view of Reacher. But, they lack the compelling natural law based visceral experience of a good Reacher story. I will keep listening as they are getting better.
