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.

Simply nuanced, poorly developed characters. None of the "homeless genius", "McGuyver"-style tactics. Implausible at every turn. The only positive is Dick Hill's masterful narration, but even he sounds bored with this story.
It may be just me, but i really don't like the style of the book being told in the first person. All the characters seem so hollow and incomplete, and the lead character, the one telling the story, comes off as too self important. Oh well, maybe just a personal preference.
Lee Childs is always good and this is a very good book. It will hold you to it and you will be glad you read it. Buy this one.
I was worried when I listened to Echo Burning that I had reached the end of the good Child books. The last two, prove that I can keep working my way through the series w/o worry. Two amazing books in a row.
I am such a big Fan of Lee Child's Reacher books! This one is well written and superbly narrated. Most likely one my favorites. I get a kick out of him always thinking through is steps before the bad guys know what hit's them. Enjoy!
Having just finished the excellent "Tripwire," I was ready for another Reacher. "Persuader" killed the character for me for some time to come. Story flat, characters full of lead. Seems as if Child wrote this one for the money. I've enjoyed this series, but not this version.
So much to learn, and so little time to sit down and read. Thanks Audible.
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.
