Never forgive; never forget.
Jack Reacher lives for the moment. Without a home. Without commitment. But he has a burning desire to right wrongs - and rewrite his own agonizing past.
Never apologize. Never explain.
When Reacher witnesses a brutal kidnap attempt, he takes the law into his own hands. But a cop dies. Has Reacher lost his sense of right and wrong?

I loved this story! I've read the first 10 books in the Reacher series and this is in my top 3. A few nice twists, and some surprises got me hooked within the first 20 minutes.
Dick Hill was great in the narration of this one (even though I got used to his voice reading some Bosch stories which was a hard image to shake), and the story develops well and keeps the tension building. Maybe there's a bit too much detail when Reacher takes down one of the enemies, which is not for the faint hearted but a well-written book that I'd highly recommend!
Good work, Lee and well read, Dick!
The wonderful nail biting build up to the final battle.
yes. Buy bringing me into the world of Jack Reacher, I felt as though I was there.
The last one when he battles Paulie.
I think Dick Hill is the best narrator for these books, the others are good but I think for Jack Reacher he is the best.
Another superb title in the Jack Reacher series. I start listening to these titles and simply can't stop, I listen to it at the gym, in the car, out shopping.. Everywhere. The author has crafted an amazing character in Reacher, his whole character carries from book to book allowing the reader to really get to know him. The storyline is well researched and grounded in the real world with a fantastic pace brought by the narrator and some great characterisations for the support cast. Jack reacher at his deadly best!
So, I've made it to book 7 and my worst fears have been confirmed; the story of Jack Reacher's life is a Groundhog Day. His only saving grace in this recurring humdrum is that he gets to beat up a different guy and sleep with a different woman on each outing.
I really do not like being so bluntly negative so I'll close out now before I start on chronological confusion and text repetition. (Damn, I almost did!)
"Reacher stories are brilliant"
Yes - good pace and great story
The plot was well woven.
Good performance by Dick Hill.
The start is always important. Starting fast and grabbing the imagination superb book. Even if you haven't read it listened to the rest of the series its a great book. Only subtle ref to previous books.
I am sometimes annoyed by the interpretation of female character voices in the earlier Reacher audiobooks, but this time it was much better performance by Dick Hill.
"I've been persuaded!"
Another great storyline and Dick Hill is a skilful narrator.
The third person narrative was off-putting at first but I soon got into it. I wasn't sure I was going to enjoy the story with the way it opened but I'm glad I stuck with it.
Jack Reacher remains a compelling hero and his character development has been carefully considered across the series so far. All the characters are well-developed and believable.
The action is well-described and certainly pulls no punches, if you'll pardon the pun.
I'm a huge fan of the Reacher series and this book did not disappoint at all.
"Took me ages to get into it"
The first section of the story appears to be completely out of character and took me along time to get through. But very quickly it all made sense
I am listening to the series in order - this is a different narrator than the previous and I like him 😉 Reacher never lets you down 👍
Took me AGES to finish this-think it might be better to read these than listen-I find my mind wanders and then I realise I have not listened to anything for ten mins?! Always happens with Jack Reacher books
"As expected,.. "
Got totally immersed in the story, narrator was Jack,. Well pleased. Gonna rest now, weary
