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.

    "Good tough guy book"

    Jack Reacher is a tough guy, no doubt about it. Lee Child gets us inside of his mind and lets us be privy to his thought process. This makes his confidence more plausible. Dick Hill has the perfect delivery for a character with this much bravado. I did see a couple of weak spots in the story line, but they were still plausible. I enjoyed this book so much I think I will want to listen to more of this series. If this review helped, please let me know with your vote. Thanks

    "Action suspense but less than believable"

    Jack Reacher is a little to super human. A chance coincidence of brothers being at the same remote place at the same time. The mystery takes some interesting turns and a little romance is thrown in for good measure. The 1st of the series, but I read others 1st. Doesn't seem important to read in order so I'd skip this one. Not sure if I'd have read others in the series if I'd started here.

    "Escapism? Okay...I'll buy that."

    The plot twists are implausible but interesting, the dialog is wooden and the protaganist is seemingly invincible.

    Loved it!

    Very pleased with the narrator and I will be adding other Lee Child stories to my collection.

    "cold be better"

    Better than listening to the radio, but just barely. Is it just me or does almost every sentence end in the word "right"? I started listening to Lee Child as an audible suggestion after downloading a Vince Flynn work. Sorry, they might be the same genere, but nothing alike. If you have an "either or" decision to make, pick the other one.

    Audiobooks allow book nerds like me to venture out in public and keep "reading."

    "One of Lee Child's Best"

    This book was an unexpected surprise. While I am a big, big, fan of Lee Child and the Jack Reacher series, the title of this book was a bit misleading. It is not about some psychopath on the loose. Rather it features well written dialogue between Jack and a few down-home police detectives in rural Georgia. More than other books in this series, Mr. Child goes out of his way to carefully develop characters that I could identify with and have empathy for. You will like this book if you enjoy a good mystery and simple people faced with the challenge of doing extraordinary things. The only complaint I had is one far fetched connection between Jack and his long lost brother. Dick Hill did an excellent job narrating as usual. Thanks Audible.

    "Good, but..."

    This is a good story, with plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader interested. I enjoyed it and I'm not sorry I purchased it and listened to it. But. . .one aspect was disappointing. There are not-quite-graphic descriptions of the main character's visual lust and sexual encounters, that are a bit much for this kind of story. I. am. not. a. prude. I just think there's a time and place for everything, and this author's descriptions of such matters reminded me of listening to a couple of my male college friends' descriptions of escapades with certain women; it actually gets boring after awhile. So you got laid, buddy. Good for you. Now get on with the story, and spare me the not particularly interesting or original details.

    "Enjoyable listen"

    Lee Childs does a nice job of telling the story in a thorough manner along with developing the lead character, Jack Reacher. I will definitely check out another Lee Childs book.

    "Great story and reading"

    The story was detailed and caught me up in trying to solve the mystery. The narrator sounded like I thought the character would be in reality.

    "Left me wanting more"

    My first time to hear one in the Jack Reacher series. Felt a little rough, like a character should feel when just coming into his own. But, it left me wanting more. Can not wait to get the next book in the series. Hope the rest of this series lives up to this first one.
