Publisher's Summary

Two lonely towns in Colorado: Hope and Despair. Between them, 12 miles of empty road. Jack Reacher never turns back. It's not in his nature. All he wants is a cup of coffee. What he gets is big trouble. So in Lee Child's electrifying new novel, Reacher - a man with no fear, no illusions, and nothing to lose - goes to war against a town that not only wants him gone, it wants him dead.

It wasn't the welcome Reacher expected. He was just passing through, minding his own business. But within minutes of his arrival a deputy is in the hospital and Reacher is back in Hope, setting up a base of operations against Despair, where a huge, seething walled-off industrial site does something nobody is supposed to see...where a small plane takes off every night and returns seven hours later...where a garrison of well-trained and well-armed military cops - the kind of soldiers Reacher once commanded - waits and watches...where above all two young men have disappeared and two frightened young women wait and hope for their return.

Joining forces with a beautiful cop who runs Hope with a cool hand, Reacher goes up against Despair - against the deputies who try to break him and the rich man who tries to scare him - and starts to crack open the secrets, starts to expose the terrifying connection to a distant war that's killing Americans by the thousand.

Now, between a town and the man who owns it, between Reacher and his conscience, something has to give. And Reacher never gives an inch.

    ""Reacher" Do you really know him?"

    I started the Lee Child novels with “The Killing Floor” and was immediately captured by the talent of this Author. I was insanely addicted and went through book after book to where I am now “Nothing To Loose”. In my journey through these novels I have came to the conclusion that this Author has a agenda. To start his agenda he gets his readers addicted by pure, raw, talent and then slowly starts feeding his messages and as the books go on the message gets plainer, louder, and more outspoken.

    After the first few books it is clear that Reacher (Lee Child) is a Atheist but he doesn’t pound away at it, he just makes a few jabs at believers. In every book he has to sleep with different women and makes it clear that sleeping with a woman doesn’t and shouldn’t mean any kind of commitment to that said woman. By the time I had gotten to the book “The Enemy” it was clear that Reacher (Lee Child) was also a homosexual supporter and in favor of homosexual’s in the military! So now we have the big brute “Reacher” going around killing everyone and beating up every man he comes across but has a sensitive spot for having homosexuals in our military!

    Now for the Clincher!!! I have now gotten to “Nothing To Loose” and Lee Child shows every color in his soul!!! Now Lee is taking huge blows to the believers and now this big bad brutal man (Reacher) is supporting military deserters (who don’t believe in the cause)!!! What a guy this Lee Child is!!! In this book he comes out swinging like Nancy Peolosi!! I am truly amazed at the agenda Lee has by this book. I am angry and sad that now I have purchased every “Reacher” novel that I was pulled in to this trap and now funded him to write more books on his agenda!!! I am sad that Lee obviously doesn’t know anything about a higher power, moral values, and the commitment of a armed soldier!!! If Lee Child shares your personal idea’s then by all means his books will be of great satisfaction to you and you have the right to that belief syste

    "author's politics intrudes"

    Child hides the plot twists well and all details come together in the end... HOWEVER... Child uses this book as a podium to promote his liberal-athiest political convictions: mixing incorrect assumptions about US military into ideas plausible to the naive & reproach for anything religious.
    We read fiction to divert our minds from CNN, ABC, etc. Why inject personal convictions and viewpoints into the story as though they are established societal norms? Sure, provoke thought and inspire concern, but don't assume we should all share the author's value system and political beliefs! Child should stick to mystery and suspense and stay out of "politically correctness" indoctrination.

    "Boring"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I found the book very boring. Gave up on it after listening to over half. Reacher goes here, goes there, and back .... Nothing the least bit interesting is going on to hold your attention. Seems to me to be lots of fluff, like the author needs to fill the book with something. I know, lets spend a paragraph describing a clock on the wall.


    What could Lee Child have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Made it interesting


    Did Dick Hill do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Ok.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Nothing to Lose?

    Scrapped the whole thing.


    Any additional comments?

    I think Lee is falling into a rut.

    "Nothing to Lose"

    As always Lee Child did a wonderful job of keeping me on the edge of my seat. There's nothing quite like a Jack Reacher novel to entertain and keep me wanting more.

    "Enjoyable and timely...."

    This is one of many Lee Child novels I've "read" and I found this one as enjoyable and realistic as the others. For those who thought there were inaccuracies or too much of Child's own politics in the book, there are those of us who find it brutally honest & embarrassing in terms of the disgraceful medical care received by our military. Also, although I prefer fiction, I also realize it must be surrounded by some semblance of the truth and do not see how Child could present this tale without making his own beliefs apparent.
