Nothing to Lose: Jack Reacher 12

Two small towns in Colorado: Hope and Despair. Between them, nothing but twelve miles of empty road. Jack Reacher can't find a ride, so he walks. All he wants is a cup of coffee. What he gets are four redneck deputies who want to run him out of town. Mistake. They're picking on the wrong guy. Jack Reacher is a big man, and he's in shape. No job, no address, no baggage. Nothing, except bloody-minded curiosity. What is the secret the locals seem so keen to hide?

    Story
    "Jack does scrapyard challenge."
    What did you love best about Nothing to Lose?

    Closed, stifling, suspicious? Jack can punch all the way to freedom.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Nothing to Lose?

    Early on Jack enters the town and orders a beer, the locals give him the evil eye, and Jack responds like Jack does. Stereo and deluxe.


    What about Jeff Harding’s performance did you like?

    Jeff gets Reacher, awkward, elusive, charismatic, blunt. Believe, I tell you, believe!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Come on this is Jack Reacher, if you get moved by fiction, this is not your genre. You get a kick! Plenty of those in this novel, each as purging as dry figs.

    "Excellent, Fast-paced Thriller"

    Lee Child's character Jack Reacher is a fantastically controversial hero - a man who lives by his own rules and considers that results always justify the means. Throughout the series he wanders the US with a random freedom bordering on an obsession to be hidden from the world - anonymous in the crowd. Wherever he encounters wrongs he puts them to rights in his own direct and ruthless way - often trespassing on the law, his results always land on the right side of justice.

    In Nothing to Lose, Reachers wanders into a town called Despair in the state of Colorado - and is promptly arrested by the town deputies for violating the Vagrancy Ordinance. He is ejected back to the town he had come from, Hope where he is met by his soon-to-be reluctant ally, a police officer named Vaughn.

    Reacher's stubborn curiosity carries him back into despair and together is Vaughn he uncovers a conspiracy that involves the whole town, being carried out by the unbalanced sectarian owner of the metal recycling plant that provides business and revenue for the entire town of Despair.

    Through the character of Reacher, the author injects interesting views of military duty and desertion, of the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan and the Army as an institution.

    All in all a very enjoyable, fast paced thriller with a good mix of dry humour and action. It fully deserves the 5 star rating I have given it and it is well read by Jeff Harding.

    "Excellent"

    Really enjoying the Jack Reacher novels and this one I couldn't stop listening to, the storyline really draws you in, this is the 12th Jack Reacher book and they just keep getting better. Again Jeff Harding does an excellent job of narrating the story, looking forward to the next one!

    "Reacher ... a magnet for trouble"

    Oh Reacher Reacher when will you learn to keep your 6' 5" frome out of trouble. If Lee Child's creation did then we would robbed of a dusty, eccentric, travelling rough neck with the moral code of the Lone Ranger wedded to the chivalry of a medieval knight. This strory saunters along gathering dust and trouble. None of the trouble is of Reachers making of course though in the breaking of a few arms and heads he is more than able to find solutions.
    Without the voice of Jeff Harding ... who in my mind is THE Reacher ... the vision would not be complete. Jeff Hardings voice is 6' 5"" tall and what a fine story he tells.

    "Bit pedestrian and fanciful tale"
    Would you listen to Nothing to Lose again? Why?

    Wouldn't listen again as unlike the other Reacher novels it has poor character development , little emotional connection and fanciful story.


    What will your next listen be?

    Simon Kernick - Stay alive


    Have you listened to any of Jeff Harding’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Good performance by jeff harding but struggles to work with poor material.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No part of the book really engaged me emotionally and the whole experience left an insubstantial feeling.


    Any additional comments?

    After listening to all the reacher novels so far this has made me want to take a long wait before trying book 13.
