Publisher's Summary

All is not well in Margrave, Georgia.

The sleepy, forgotten town hasn't seen a crime in decades, but within the span of three days it witnesses events that leave everyone stunned. An unidentified man is found beaten and shot to death on a lonely country road. The police chief and his wife are butchered on a quiet Sunday morning. Then a bank executive disappears from his home, leaving his keys on the table and his wife frozen with fear.

The easiest suspect is Jack Reacher - an outsider, a man just passing through. But Reacher is not just any drifter. He is a tough ex-military policeman, trained to think fast and act faster. He has lived with and hunted the worst: the hard men of the American military gone bad.

Don't miss any of Jack Reacher's adventures.

    Story
    "A little ridiculous"

    The story was good but it seemed a little ridiculous to me that this stranger walks into town and suddenly he knows more about the investigation than the police. The lead detective confides in him and he falls in love and lives with the female police officer in 1 day. Quite far-fetched but if you can get past that, it was entertaining.

    "Jack Reacher!!!!!"

    This is the first book I've read by Lee Child and I am really loving this character, Jack Reacher. This story is so thriling and suspensful, a classic who done it with plenty of twists and turns. I will definitely be reading another Jack Reacher novel. And Dick Hill as the narrator is always a plus to any audilble novel.

    Story
    "If you like Jack Reacher, you will like this."

    If you enjoy the Jack Reacher series, as many readers do, then this one will once again provide hours of reading pleasure. Dick Hill is the perfect narrator for the books. His voice is full of dramatic tension when that is called for, calm when he needs to be, versatile and friendly. The plot careens all over the place, which is part of what separates Lee Child from the horde of CIA-espionage-secrets that might end the world authors. Also, the character of Reacher continues to grow. His position as identity-less wanderer who roams around the country with no proof of who he is, no history and no connections: this is a good narrative for the character, who truly epitomizes the loner. His constant search for the answers to riddles which almost always include secrecy, violence and beautiful young women reminds one of Bond. Reacher, though, is fully American. None of the plot twists feel stilted or contrived (OK, a little contrived). In this book Reacher's connection to his recently dead brother adds a personal heft to the other books' existentially disconnected stories. Child always has a good story to tell, and he holds your interest in a way that never flags. You keep wondering when Mr. Child will run out of stories, but so far, he just keeps going and going...

    "The beginning of the Jack Reacher series"

    This is the first book in the popular Jack Reacher series. There is a lot of action and the author really does a great job painting the scenes where Reacher combats the enemies. The plot is suspenseful and is developed slowly. Details are slowly revealed at a pace that keeps the reader interested and engaged. Even though Reacher's motivations are simple, there is some complexity and mystery about his past. He is a larger than life character who seems somehow enhanted. At the end of the book, most of the mysteries are revealed but enough is still unknown abou Reacher to makethe reader eager for the next adventure.

    "Off to a Great Start"

    The first of the Jack Reacher series introduces us to our hero and narrator, a retired Police Army officer who is now wandering through the U.S. with nothing but a desire to live free of all ties and obligations. Sitting in a small-town diner one day he is arrested for a murder he did not commit, then promptly put in jail, even though Reacher assures us he is innocent of any wrongdoing. All he wants is to clear up the misunderstanding, get out of jail and move on, but he is sucked into a mysterious plot involving dangerous players and a gang of killers who inflict terrible pain on their victims and leave horribly mangled corpses behind. Of course, our man, with his intense army training is up for the challenge. When he's not picking off his opponents, he falls into a tender embrace with a beautiful woman who can't resist this big strong man with the sexy blue eyes. A great mix of suspense, violence, and sex appeal. My only reservation is that Lee Child, a British writer, seemed at times to struggle with American dialogue, though this was allowable for a first time novelist. Not for the faint of heart, but I'll be following Reacher in his next adventure, count on it.
