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.

    "Wow! This one might be the BEST Reacher novel"

    Holds you like glue to the very last page.....I have read all the Jack Reacher novels, I think, and this one is the best. At times you are not really sure who the bad guys are....and while the main plot rushes on, Reacher constantly remembers events from the past when an investigation went wrong....and it turns out that the newest problem will help rectify the previous fouled up investigation provided Reacher can overcome the crook that bested him earlier...The narration is very very good....the narrator gets the pacing and the accents and the emotions exactly right....

    "Lee and Hill a great combination"

    Another exciting Jack Reacher adventure. Each time I pick one of these up on a Daily Deal I always think that it will be my last, but Lee Child has a great pen for action-adventure.

    In this addition Jack finds himself knee deep in a covert mission where he is to extract an under cover operative that is caught up in a drug opperation, however, all things are not what they may seem. When he infiltrates and gains the trust of some of the players involved, he starts to realize that the whole convoluted mission leads him back into his past.

    A lot of gun fights and the normal Reacher bravado, surrounded by some pretty interesting characters and a good, twisting plot. As always Dick Hill's narration added something extra to the story. I will be picking up the next Daily Deal in this series. It always keeps me wanting for more.

    "It isn't you; it's me"

    Dear Jack
    We have to talk. This just isn't working between us anymore.
    Be assured that it isn't you; it's me.

    Your super human escapades are fine, I just can suspend belief long enough anymore
    Your emotional immaturity is fine, I just feel I need something a less shallow these days
    Your author's choice of having Tom Thumb , I mean Tom Cruise play you in a movie is fine, even though I am stricken with paralyzing nausea at the very thought

    I'm not worried that you will reply as your author's most favorite phrase for you is "I said nothing." Honestly Jack, if I had a penny for every time I heard that, I could forget trying to win the Power Ball

    I wish you all the best. I know you will find new readers/listeners as I must move on and find other authors/heroes/books .

    Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.

    "Action Packed, Edge of Your Seat Nail Biter"

    This was the first Lee Child audio book I've listened to, although it is in the middle of the series. It's still a great stand-alone story, and caught my attention from the start, kept it until the end. I'm a sucker for ex-military types and love it when they are the good guys, and this one is full of ex-military guys, good and bad. The back story (ten years prior when Reacher was still in the army) was very interesting and central to the current story, and if you don't listen carefully, near the end of the book, you may get confused. I didn't. Great story, great narration. I will be listening to more of the series.

    "Dick Hill ruins good books. Worst narrator ever."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. Almost unable to listen to due to lousey narrator.


    If you’ve listened to books by Lee Child before, how does this one compare?

    This book is completely the same as past books. You can predict everything before it happens. That is if you can hear it. Because the narrator mumbles so much.


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

    Someone that can control their volume and doesn't accentuate the last few words of every sentence.


    Could you see Persuader being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Can you believe they cast Tom Cruise in the Jack Reacher movie? What is he? 5'6" tall?
    And they make such a big deal about Reacher being 6'5" in the early books.


    Any additional comments?

    Dick Hill ruins good books. And destroys mediocre ones.

    "More of the same; and not in a good way."

    An excellent beginning, good writing, and the power of a great character are; in the end, wasted due to the two weaknesses of Lee Child. The first is the omnipresent filler that takes the Jack Reacher novels two or three hours longer than they need to be; this one drags things out to a painful level; it is the weakest Reacher novel since Tripwire. The second factor is the overly drawn out finale that is a part of every book in the series; in this case though it is taken to ridiculous lengths. There is one anti climactic scene that to me appeared absolutely ridiculous. There is much that's okay in this listen but if this is your initial foray into the Reacher series; you might not read another.

    I enjoy counter-terrorism, westerns, historical fiction, detective mysteries, and old school comedy like "A Christmas Story".

    "Corny"

    I liked the action parts of this novel, but the story was extremely weak and unbelievable in so many areas I don't know where to start. I have read 2 other Lee Child novels which I enjoyed, but this one was weak.

    Also Dick Hill, the narrator, should not try to do any characters other than the main character. Every supporting character sounds the same-whether man or woman...like an alcoholic older woman(who we have all met on the street asking for a donation to her habit). Advise to the author, Lee Child: have someone else do the supporting characters other than Dick Hill. Dick Hill does a fine job for the main "tough guy" character. But it was tedious listening to Dick Hill repeat the same intonations for every single supporting character, whether male or female. I wanted to stop listening it was so painful.
