Publisher's Summary

Jack Reacher. Hero. Loner. Soldier. Soldier's son. An elite military cop, he was one of the army's brightest stars. But in every cop's life there is a turning point. One case. One messy, tangled case that can shatter a career. Turn a lawman into a renegade. And make him question words like honor, valor, and duty. For Jack Reacher, this is that case.

New Year's Day, 1990. The Berlin Wall is coming down. The world is changing. And in a North Carolina "hot-sheets" motel, a two-star general is found dead. His briefcase is missing. Nobody knows what was in it. Within minutes Jack Reacher has his orders: Control the situation. But this situation can't be controlled. Within hours the general's wife is murdered hundreds of miles away. Then the dominoes really start to fall.

Two Special Forces soldiers - the toughest of the tough - are taken down, one at a time. Top military commanders are moved from place to place in a bizarre game of chess. And somewhere inside the vast worldwide fortress that is the U.S. Army, Jack Reacher - an ordinarily untouchable investigator for the 110th Special Unit - is being set up as a fall guy with the worst enemies a man can have.

But Reacher won't quit. He's fighting a new kind of war. And he's taking a young female lieutenant with him on a deadly hunt that leads them from the ragged edges of a rural army post to the winding streets of Paris to a confrontation with an enemy he didn't know he had. With his French-born mother dying - and divulging to her son one last, stunning secret - Reacher is forced to question everything he once believed...about his family, his career, his loyalties - and himself. Because this soldier's son is on his way into the darkness, where he finds a tangled drama of desperate desires and violent death - and a conspiracy more chilling, ingenious, and treacherous than anyone could have guessed.

Don't miss any of Jack Reacher's adventures.

    "Reacher is fantastic"

    Great listen! Cant go wrong with Child and his legendary Reacher series.

    I would give Dick Hill 10 stars for his performance if I could. He is the perfect narrator for this series.

    "Great book but a little slow"

    Another great Jack Reacher story and as usual the performance by Dick Hill is awesome. My only complaint is that the story is a little slow and I felt that some of the details about France or the Army were unnecessary and felt like fillers but overall a fantastic book.

    "So disappointing"

    I love the Jack Reacher series, but this one was not a good read. I thought I would scream if I heard one more "I said nothing." The performance had many characters, most of which sounded ridiculous.

    "Receacher's Backstory Revealed"

    the intertwining of Receacher's mother and the harsh reality of his military organizatuonal hort comings is a perfect mix. It is a death of his past and , in many ways, he death of his future.

    I don't usually rush out for all the "best sellers", but give each intriguing book/author a look. I have found many diamonds in the rough.

    "Another great Reacher."

    I love this fast action, fast moving series. Jack Reacher is a mans man with a tough exterior and a good moral compass. I have not read this series in order but this could be the first. It is the explination why Jack opts out of his military career. The storyline moves along smartly with good characters who are likable and believable. I love when any of these come up as a Daily Deal. Dick Hill is not always my favorite narrator but I think this is the perfect character for him.

    "another great Lee Child book"

    especially good reader, stories by child are always interesting with so many twists and turns, the flow is always clean and keeps the mind wondering what's next and guessing the end.

    "Lee Child's Best So Far"

    Poetic justice at it's best, except for the guy who is the best! And Dick Hill only makes it better.

    Story
    "loved it, just a little monotone."

    I really loved the story. it was very well-told and highly unpredictable in the different turns and twists in the plot. my only complaint was that the reader didn't use a lot of tone fluctuation, sort of like a western movie. all of the characters talked in roughly the same Pace too. There wasn't a character that spoke faster than another or slower than another. that just hindered the natural flow of the story a little bit I think. the only other complaint I would make would be the authors over usage of the term "I said nothing."

    These complaints were pretty minor though when looking at the overall book experience. I would listen to it again in a heartbeat.
