    "Hero for the times"

    Suspense all the way and a satisfying conclusion. Although a little unbelievable, in that Reacher always wins, it is the path to that victory that ultimately draws in the reader/listener. You want to know how he works things out, why he becomes involved... Reacher is, basically, a very likeable character, a 'goodie'. And Jeff Harding is a great listen.

    "Great escapist story telling"

    Lee Child's "Jack Reacher"action thrillers tend to be somewhat formulaic, but never fail to be gripping and entertaining. Fans of the series will not be disappoined with this story. New readers can jump into the series at any point since back story is not too important.
    Jeff Harding is an excellent reader, although his attempts at a Russian accent in parts of this book are a little odd!

    "Absolutely brilliant - Classic Reacher"

    This was the first Jack Reacher novel I heard and I have now listened again and it's just as good. The plot is as enthralling as all Lee Childs work. Reacher is only after one thing the truth! even if he cant stand the guy he's helping the truth is more important. You will be kept guessing right to the end but with Lee Child that is never frustrating just enthralling.



    If you are a Jack Reacher fan you will love it. If you haven't heard a Jack Reacher story yet this is a great introduction, you will definitely download another!

    "Loved it - I don't seem to get sick of Reacher"
    Would you listen to One Shot again? Why?

    Yes - maybe not for a bit though.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of One Shot?

    The stories about the Russian characters in the gulag scared me! Was hoping there wouldn't be too much detail!


    What does Jeff Harding bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    The books are also great to read. What I enjoy the most is the drama JH is able to convey in the reading of the book.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It mostly makes me laugh, hold my breath and then breath a sigh of relief. Bit of a roller coaster the Jack Reacher books in terms of emotions!!

    "Superlative!"


    We learn a little more about what makes Reacher tick.
    He is a truly fascinating character - violent yet tender, ruthless yet considerate and very, very clever.
    I look forward, with relish, to his next adenture.

    "One Shot is a great addiion to the 'Reacher' story"

    I must declare right up front that I am an avid Lee Childs fan.

    I felt that this story was one of the best since the very early ones with more twists than usual.

    It's a shame that Tom Cruise, an actor who I normally enjoy, elected to play Reacher (a role that he is physically unsuited to in the extreme) in the film version of this story.

    The fact that the film was a dog should not put anyone off listening to this Audible version of what is really a very different story.

    Jeff Harding's narration added greatly to my enjoyment - a real five star listen.

    "So good they made a movie"

    Child is on top form putting Reacher in the middle of a convoluted conspiracy to guarantee building contracts. Sounds trivial ?? Then someone makes the ultimate mistake... They upset Jack Reacher.. Oh oohh!

    "OK .....just....but not his best"

    I found this Jack Reacher offering to be a bit tired and lacklustre. It had a few good moments but lacked the effortless and enthralling story telling of some of more note worthy offerings of this series. I think I'll give Jack a bit of break for a while.

    "Reacher at his best"

    Another great outing for jack and so much better than the movie ( cruise 6ft 5 don't think so ) well narrated as usual by Mr Harding dramatic without the drama . My only criticism is " reacher says nothing " a phrase heard to often . I recommend this to all my friends.

    "Another great Jack Reacher story!"
    Any additional comments?

    Excellent story and great narration by Jeff Harding, although the words "said nothing" got a bit repetitive! I also didn't like the bits of background music.
