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.

People who like Dick Hill's voice
I love Lee Child. I love Jack Reacher.
No. I keep trying, and he just makes me crazy--not as crazy as diminutive Tom Cruise playing Reacher, but crazy.
For some reason, the monotonous Hill permeates the genres I enjoy. Why? He constantly mixes his voices up, and he CANNOT do women. They all sound like a man trying to do a granny voice. I will have to read Child on a Kindle.
This is the third book I've listened to by this author and narrator and I love each and every one! I know Reacher's character may be over the top, but I still get excited and sometimes find myself holding my breath to hear what will happen next. I listen to these books in my car and there have been times that I've just sat in the car (after I've arrived at my destination), because I can't find a good stopping point! I just have to hear what comes next!
The book's plot started immediately and kept going at a fast pace.
There were many memborable moments. But the drowning scene was so well written I feel like I know exactly what the character went through.
When Reacher finally over came the last few of the bad guys.
Absolutely, I love lee child, I have only heard a few of his jack reacher novels, but they're great! I'm never dissapointed with lee child
The part where jack saves the boy and his mother from Paul and his devious pleasures, how he wasn't afraid to give his life to save others, like a good soldier offers his life to save innocent people.
I'm a truck driver, the cab of my truck can get noisy, I would much appreciate if he wouldn't drop his voice so much, he gets very hard to hear sometimes, unlike Scott brick or jay Snyder who are very nice to listen to when I'm driving
Yep! But I break it up over several days, because like I said, I'm a driver and I like to listen to a good exciting book to keep me awake when I get sleepy
Great work lee child! Love all your books!
Listening while I run.
Maybe, I just don't get it but this is the second Reacher book that I thought was just mediocre. The story was slow and boring and the bad guys were not believable. I tried but I could not get into the story. I would say pass on this one.
Where do I begin? Lee Child seems to have some sort of ADD when it comes to his character Jack Reacher. In one book he is, "all that movie stuff you see when revenge is sweet- my brother would laugh at that" and then another he is, "I'm Jack Reacher, I NEED YOU TO KNOW WHO I AM". Not to mention Reacher goes from being hyper vigilant in 95 percent of all situations and always has some sort of complete lack of sense at the times it matters most. Lazy writing. Manufactured danger. Really dumb 'bad guys'.
One last thing. Stop painting people who believe in the right to bear arms and own whatever weapons they deem enough to protect themselves from danger and mostly tyranny as thugs and villians, whilst claiming that in the hands of some douche bag former MP it's completely OK.
No. Mitch Rapp almost never disappoints.
Jack Reacher of course. Dick Hill is great.
Dick Hill in a Punisher comic book type setting would be great. Even if he were to narrate over an actual movie. (If I'm late to this party please understand this is the only character I've ever heard him voice)
The best part was the twist at the beginning
The least was the lengthy descriptions of guns
This story did not have the personal relationships of previous books.
I wouldn't put it better than the print version, only that the audio version lets me enjoy the book/story at times when I would not be able to read, such as while driving.
The back and forth between present and past. I don't remember Child doing this before
Made me think, 'YEAH!"
Very enjoyable. I'd recommend it to any Reacher fan
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.
Yes, so far one of the top 5 Jack Reacher stories
Kept my attention throughout the book, fast pace
Good solid narration
Reacher's interaction with the Feds
