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.

    "Really keeps your interest"

    This was my first listen to the Jack Reacher novels, and I've already downloaded a few more. It's a fast paced story, full of action, suspense, murder, romance. You name it, this story has it, to keep the earbuds on for the duration.
    The narration is excellent, so I'll definitely want to listen to more from Dick Hill, along with reading this series.

    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.

    Story
    "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.

    "Excellent Book"
    Would you listen to Persuader again? Why?

    Lee Child is awesome! I do not like to listen to or read the same story twice but if I did, I would definitely listen to this book again.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Dick Hill!


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    Dick Hill! He did a fantastic job. Especially when the story was climaxing. I would have done this story no justice reading it myself. Dick Hill gripped me and didn't let me go until he got ready.

    Story
    "Way Too Gruesome"

    This was my first-and last-Jack Reacher book. I love good mysteries and spy stories, and I know folks get killed in a variety of ways for a variety of reasons in any "who done it". But the endless blood and guts of this book was way too much for me.
    Having said that, I have to admit I listened to every word, because Lee Child did such a great job getting the cat up the tree I just had to find out how he was going to get it down. Great plot, great suspense, great performance. If only a few less people had died in a few less imaginative ways.

    Thats really hard to say.. all of it.. lol.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    "Too much prolonged violence"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I don't think so. This wasn't one of my favorite Jack Reacher stories. I am a Jack Reacher fan, but some are just two violent.


    What other book might you compare Persuader to and why?

    I think "Die Trying" would be similar. Lots of violence, too many prolonged scenes of cruelty and depravity. The mystery was good, but would have been better without the graphic details which actually take away from the story-line, in my opinion.


    What three words best describe Dick Hill’s performance?

    Mediocre, childish, amateurish


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

    It repelled me. I found myself wanting to skip some of the violence to get back to the story.


    Any additional comments?

    I am a Jack Reacher fan. I like most of the stories, but sometimes the author goes a little over the top with violence. Yes, I know that Jack is one tough hombre, but the details get a bit too prolonged. Interestingly, it actually detracts from the story (for me at least). Lee Child is very skilled at creating good mysteries and unexpected twists and turns, which I appreciate. HIs characters are always interesting and I really like the strength, both internal and external, of the main character. There is something very charismatic about someone so confident, filled with a deep inner calm and who follows his own path outside the box. I've never been a fan of Dick Hill's, however. Though his voice is perfect for the Jack Reacher character, he does other voices very poorly, especially female, young characters or other ethnic groups. He just doesn't have the nuances of voice that a good overall narrator should have.
