After an epic and interrupted journey all the way from the snows of South Dakota, Jack Reacher has finally made it to Virginia. His destination: a sturdy stone building a short bus ride from Washington D.C., the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th MP. It was the closest thing to a home he ever had. Why? He wants to meet the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner. He liked her voice on the phone. But the officer sitting behind Reacher’s old desk isn't a woman. Why is Susan Turner not there?
What Reacher doesn’t expect is what comes next. He himself is in big trouble, accused of a sixteen-year-old homicide. And he certainly doesn't expect to hear these words: ‘You’re back in the army, Major. And your ass is mine.’Will he be sorry he went back? Or – will someone else?

"A gripping read"
Ace narrator lights up a gripping drama. Reacher at his best tackling corruption at the highest levels.
"Book verses film"
So glad I read the book first film was disappointing doesn't do the character justice.
"Just as good on the reread"
Ahead of the film release later this month I decided to reread this book and I thoroughly enjoyed it again. It has all the traits of a Reacher book - fast paced, good storyline, lots of action, drugs and money and full of twists and turns. There are reflections of Reacher’s time as Commander of the 110th and the repercussions of his actions in the present day, including trumped up charges that force Reacher back into the army. However he doesn’t allow this to restrict his investigation into the incarceration of the current commanding officer of 110th, Major Susan Turner or indeed influence his decision to break out of jail with her. Together they follow the trail of espionage and cover ups.
I am unashamedly addicted to Jack Reacher and anxiously await the next book in November - Night School.
"You've gotta like Reacher - one more to go - seems like a friend now"
Can't wait for the film, but I bet they mess with it too much!
The book is straight and real as Reacher is
I really love this book, great story, waiting for movie, narrated by a great narrator
"Poor Book, a real let down"
The story trundles along and never really gets going. Then it ends with no real outcome. Pretty boring
Detail, humour and rough justice.
All their usual ingredients of a Reacher book but I keep buying them.
"Another great Reacher book"
Well performed again by Jeff Harding, and a terrific end to a story that started in 61 hours. Highly recommended.
"Compelling my first time"
Outstanding story telling, great story, complexity continues throughout with intelligent links and conclusions. This my first audible book and I know that I am hooked, I need to learn how to listen to my next book while continuing my life as a full time artist without loosing the plot or the composition. Mr lee Child's, thank you.
