Publisher's Summary

Across the country women are being murdered by a killer who leaves no evidence, no fatal wounds, no signs of struggle, and no clues to a motive. They are, truly, perfect crimes. In fact, the only thing that links the victims is the man they all knew: Jack Reacher.

    "Story is quite poor"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Jack Reacher novels are generally really entertaining. This one however is not recommended. The story is just plain stupid with really absurd plot-twists...

    Story
    "Rody!!! Noooooo"

    God this book killed me. His emotional connection with the agent proved him unworthy for Jody. But there is still that longing for them to be together. I hope at some point they can figure their lives out. Maybe Jody will get to the point of having too much and needs to travel. Someday ... Until then.

    "good story despite guessing ending early"

    It was a good story. I figured some of it out early so skipped a bit towards the end but still enjoyed it overall. (not easily figured out, I just have a habit of knowing)

    "never saw it coming"

    What a book! I love Jack Reacher and the books always have twists in the plot, but this one totally surprised me. Thoroughly enjoyed the book. Narration was good. You'll love this one!

    Story
    "Better than others would have you think"

    It was a little hard to follow all the FBI agents. They were mostly introduced and then referred to exclusively by last name from then on. But this was not a big problem. The important ones stood out.

    Very nice tension that was developed when we see Reacher, still in a comitted relationship, being tempted by girl ala mode.

    I did not find the law enforcement players as 2 dimensional as others have said, FBI agents are after all just people too, and people have a way of defending their tribe.

    Favorite part of the book was how he solved a problem by starting a gang war and denied and denied it, straight faced but a little smug as only our hero Jack Reacher can.

    Story
    "Nothing like Lee Child's best"

    Jonathan McClain is no Jeff Harding! Why change narrators after all this time?
    The story is very slow to get started with a lot of irrelevant 'filler' for the first few hours.
    Is the rumour true that Lee Child is putting his name to stories by ghost writers?
    Could he have sold out his loyal readers?

    Story
    "what a disappointment"
    What would have made Running Blind better?

    The behavior and threats made by the FBI were ludicrous. And I knew who was guilty from almost the beginning. No subtlety


    What was most disappointing about Lee Child’s story?

    The narrator used absolutely ridiculous voices for everyone except Reacher and his FBI partner and Jodie.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Johnathan McClain?

    anyone could do better


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment

    Story
    "Even blind Jack is still faster than you"

    Running Blind is Lee Child's 4th Jack Reacher installment. Jack is conned into assisting the FBI with a serial murderer going after former military female sexual harassment victims while staying one step ahead of NYC mob activity in the protection racket. Jack also continues to struggle with being tied down with a home and feels torn and trapped between his feelings for Jodie and his preference for few long term commitments.

    This time out, Jack is squarely viewed by the FBI as the "bad guy" and must deal with resentment and suspicion. His deductive skills are much in evidence with a complex set of ritualistic murders that are truly baffling. At the same time, his physicality is less pronounced this time out. Jack eventually puts the puzzle together and still ends up on the wrong side of the FBI even while besting their best.

    The narration is outstanding with Jonathan McCalin reprising his Reacher role while delivering a solid range of voices. Pacing and mood are perfect for Jack Reacher.

    Story
    "Don't stomp on my LIBERTY!"

    It was a great book, Lee identifies how simple liberties are violated by our government and they do not care at all. I find it interesting that a Supreme Court can rule that the government can lie to us, but we cannot lie to them or it is obstruction of justice.

    Story
    "good suspense"
    If you could sum up Running Blind in three words, what would they be?

    Surprising, detailed, sad


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jack Reacher who handle the issues in this story well. Even though they didn't work out


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Well the Favorite scene would be one that made you happiest because this story is rough. Ladies might not like the plot. It is hard plot. But I like the scene after the funeral


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

    That one is hard. Discovering who did it I guess


    Any additional comments?

    This was a surprising plot and very rough. Ladies will not like the plot because of the subject matter. But I'd recommend it. Good mystery.
