With Reacher, number-one New York Times best-selling author Lee Child has created “a series that stands in the front rank of modern thrillers” (The Washington Post)
Everything starts somewhere....
For elite military cop Jack Reacher, that somewhere was Carter Crossing, Mississippi, way back in 1997. A lonely railroad track. A crime scene. A coverup.
A young woman is dead, and solid evidence points to a soldier at a nearby military base. But that soldier has powerful friends in Washington.
Reacher is ordered undercover - to find out everything he can, to control the local police, and then to vanish. Reacher is a good soldier. But when he gets to Carter Crossing, he finds layers no one saw coming, and the investigation spins out of control.
Local sheriff Elizabeth Deveraux has a thirst for justice - and an appetite for secrets. Uncertain they can trust one another, Reacher and Deveraux reluctantly join forces. Reacher works to uncover the truth, while others try to bury it forever. The conspiracy threatens to shatter his faith in his mission, and turn him into a man to be feared.
A novel of unrelenting suspense that could only come from the pen of number-one New York Times best-selling author Lee Child, The Affair is the start of the Reacher saga, a thriller that takes Reacher - and his readers - right to the edge... and beyond.
PLEASE NOTE: As a special bonus, this download also includes a recording of the New York Times best-selling e-book exclusive short story "Second Son", read by Dick Hill: At 13, Jack Reacher already knows how to end a fight. He knows that his brain is more important than his brawn. He knows how to get the job done. When his father is transferred to the military base on Okinawa, Jack and his older brother, Joe, prepare for school and consider how to deal with both the neighborhood bully and a missing code book that could cost their father his career.
Take another thrill ride with Jack Reacher.

“Child is a superb craftsman of suspense.” (Entertainment Weekly)
“The truth about Reacher gets better and better.” (Janet Maslin, The New York Times)
“Implausible, irresistible Reacher remains just about the best butt-kicker in thriller-lit.” (Kirkus Reviews)
I can only say that it is so sad when the story is over and you have to wait until the next book!
I dont believe I would. I thought this book started very slow, did not get my attention and I just dont care for his style.He writes the words
Possibly but not likely
I dont care for his style either and this may have added to my dislike of the book. Hill can read but he cannot act (so to speak).
I do not know, I could only get about a third of the way through the book. Maybe I will attempt to give it another listen at a later date.
To be honest, this book is more than
I couldn't finish the book because the narrator is so awful. I promise myself never to download anything by Dick Hill and then I forget! His reading of women's voices is sooo annoying.
I tried to be patient and wait for the story to erupt but I couldn't make it past the first 30 minutes. A combination of the narrator (a voice far too old for the character) and a mind numbing overly long lead up to whatever exciting/intriguing thing that was supposed to happen. I might have been able to forgive some of it if the prose had been remotely engrossing. Big zeros across the board on this. I wish I could get back my money and my time.
I didn't want to stop listening! I love the Jack Reacher character. He's just a lover, fighter, and great investigator. I especially enoyed the short childhood introduction at the end.
Only Timothy Olyphant could be Reacher. I just don't think there are many others who could carry it off
Having been a long term devoted Jack Reacher fan we looked forward to this new audible book. Sad to say the reader is one of the worst we've heard and absolutely trashes the book with a pseudo-East Coast tough guy accent that is both inappropriate to the character and almost painfully bad to listen to. Skip the audible version!
I ENJOY READING LEE CHILD'S BOOKS ABOUT JACK REACHER, BUT, REALLY ON AUDIBLE IT SOUNDS LIKE HE IS IN HIS 70'S WITH COPD! I FOUND MY SELF TAKING EXTRA BREATHS TO TRY AND HELP HIM, VERY DISTRACTING.
