Publisher's Summary

Jack Reacher.

The ultimate loner.

An elite ex-military cop who left the service years ago, he's moved from place to place...without family...without possessions...without commitments.

And without fear. Which is good, because trouble - big, violent, complicated trouble - finds Reacher wherever he goes. And when trouble finds him, Reacher does not quit, not once...not ever.

But some unfinished business has now found Reacher. And Reacher is a man who hates unfinished business.

Ten years ago, a key investigation went sour and someone got away with murder. Now a chance encounter brings it all back. Now Reacher sees his one last shot. Some would call it vengeance. Some would call it redemption. Reacher would call it...justice.

Don't miss any of Jack Reacher's adventures.

    "Typical fast pace Reacher thriller"

    Reacher seems to be getting a little old and broken for all the action. No regrets, the listen was great but I may be done with the Reacher series.

    "Excellent"

    I chose this one from the previous reviews, which were all good. It was excellent with a very good ending. One of the reviewers had said that the story takes many unexpected turns and it was all that and more.

    "The readers of this book made it."
    What made the experience of listening to Persuader the most enjoyable?

    Great story. Kept me hooked throughout.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes. There was always enough there that you thought you knew what was going to happen. Then you find out you were wrong.

    "glad I only paid $5 for this"
    What disappointed you about Persuader?

    I have read 5 or 6 of the Reacher books, and they have always seemed moderately plausible. This one, however, was ridiculously implausible after the first chapter. The base plotline was good, but everything else just seemed outrageous. I am not especially fond of the narrator either. His delivery is a bit staccato and I don't care for his voice. I think it can be a toss up when you go from reading the books, to then listenign to them. You already have your own internal pacing and impressions, and the narrator doesn't usually mimic that. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone, honestly, even if I had read it instead of listen to it. 61 hours, so much better. And why call it Persuader?


    Has Persuader turned you off from other books in this genre?

    nope. not even from other Reacher books.


    What three words best describe Dick Hill’s performance?

    Staccato. Harsh. Cocky.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    irritation and disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    this series is very good, but not this book. give another reacher novel a try.

    "Suspenseful and Violent"

    One of the best Reacher novels, with an extreme but plausible plot and some superb writing involving a near-drowning. The first-person narration works much better than the previous third-person storytelling. The action keeps unfolding and building to a very satisfying end.

    I graduated in 2011 from Saint Michael's College with a degree in English and American Studies. I love all types of writing, from Stephen King to James Joyce. I especially like short stories.

    "Reacher needs a new narrator!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I love Jack Reacher, but I cannot stand Dick Hill and his voices.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, fast paced and keeps you thinking.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Dick Hill?

    Really anyone, but Dick Hill. His voice-overs are so aggrevating.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes

    "Reacher in Full Action"

    Bought this book because it was on sale. Would have been happy to pay full price. Constant suspense and loads of action. Reacher is always one slight slip up or event out of his control from getting a bullet in the back of the head. If your a Jack Reacher newbie as I was, a fantastic introduction to the serious. After listening, you are very likely to go the the beginning where it all started for Reacher, and purchase the Killing Floor. Both the Persuader and the Killing Floor are written in the first person and narrated by Dick Hill who brings Jack Reacher to life. Lee Child also writes some of the Jack Reacher series in the third person (Die Trying, the second book in the series). Like the majority of listeners, I found Dick Hill narrated Reacher books were much more compelling than Reacher in the third person narrated by Jonathan McClain. However, as a huge Reacher fan, likely to give third person Reacher book once more chance.

    So much to learn, and so little time to sit down and read. Thanks Audible.

    "Non-stop Excitement!"

    This was my first Lee Child book, and I really enjoyed it. It was packed with action, and the time flew by as I listened to it. For me it's not quite a five-star book just because it was predictable, and didn't go very deep with any of the other characters.
