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.

    "Good but easy to figure out the killer"
    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Figuring out the killer was too easy. I spent most the book just wanting to get to the end to confirm what I had figured out early on in the story.

    Story
    "Worst Reacher Book Ever"
    Would you try another book from Lee Child and/or Johnathan McClain?

    Never for Johnathan McClain!!!! Maybe from Lee Child


    What was most disappointing about Lee Child’s story?

    Very bad poorly written dialog. I do not believe that this was written by Lee Child based on all of the previous Reacher books I have listened to.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Absolutely the worst performance of the hundreds of books I have listened to.


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

    Very disappointed that Lee Child would put his name on such an infirior product and performance.


    Any additional comments?

    Of all of the many hundreds of books I have listened to I have only returned two. This should have been the third but I trudged on and am sorry that I did.

    Story
    "Hypnotism?!"

    Remember the silly TV shows and movies that showed the audience how hypnotism worked on just about anyone? Unfortunately, Lee Child uses that worn out plot device to explain away the "bad guy's" ability to cover his/her tracks. I assume that anyone who reads/listens to the Jack Reacher novels has some intelligence; but this book, Running Blind, doesn't even challenge slight curiosity. The reader realizes early on not only who the serial killer is, but that the plot device of hypnosis is ludicrous! Hypnotism to the extent used in this novel is juvenile at best. Persons simply cannot be hypnotized to do what they simply do not, and morally would not, do. I won't expound any further because surely the average reader couldn't swallow the loose facts, theories, and simple lack of coherence to common sense. I was really quite disappointed in this book. Surely Lee Child does not think so poorly of his readers' intelligence?! I found slight flaws in the previous three or four Jack Reacher books I've already listened to, but this novel was shockingly inept. I find I must now raise my level of critical thinking on my next Reacher novels. To be continued...

    "Like listening to nails on a chalkboard!"

    Content of book was good, but it took everything I had to stick with it. Narrating was horrible. I wish I had read this book instead. I would have enjoyed it much more. You

    "Some characters too stupid to believe"

    Not sure if it was the author or the narrator but two of the FBI agents are portrayed as being too stupid to be believable. No one in their position would speak or behave in such a ignorant manner. I still like the series but this one was a miss

    Story
    "Excellent"
    Where does Running Blind rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Shows amazing and often lacked weakness of Reacher toward women, a role model and a predisposition to be compassionate. A part of reacher I have never noticed. The plot is a bit weak as I guessed the killer very early in the plot development, but nonetheless it was woven well. One of his best works, if nothing more for the side of reacher I never knew existed.


    What did you like best about this story?

    character weakness


    Have you listened to any of Johnathan McClain’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    yes I like his style and pace


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

    his relationship with his long love

    Story
    "Another complex plot with lots of twists & mystery"

    The FBI ends up being the bad guys in this one, because they abuse their power, and trap Reacher into helping them. Then after he does their work for them, they try to threaten him into some unfair agreements, but our Jack is much smarter! I was smiling big when he out-talked their pushy threats.

    Again there are at least three stories going on here, and Reacher is stuck in the middle. All the police/FBI investigation stuff is wonderful; some clues will jump out at you and make you wonder, but others will slip right on by. The narration is great and adds a lot to the enjoyable experience.

    Furthermore, Reacher is in a quandary here. He has won the love of his life, but isn't sure about the life he loves. What to do, what to do? He has some decisions to make, and they are toughies. The very things that make him so desirable also make him unattainable. We can probably guess what he does since there are a dozen more books following this one, but either choice leaves us, and him, sad.

    This has been a great series so far, and Reacher is a wonderful character. Another winner.

    "The Voice by the narrator"

    the narrator hit it on the spot. The voices he used match the voices as I thoughts in my head.
