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.

    Story
    "Jack Reacher is my hero!"
    If you could sum up The Enemy in three words, what would they be?

    thrilling, frustrating and upsetting


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jack of course! He is so honest about himself and I love the way he works out solving the mystery--he even makes mistakes at times.


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

    Yes, many many books and for some reason I enjoyed him more this time than I have in the past.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me mad---but loved the way Jack took over the problem.

    "Couldn't get in to this book"

    Restarted this audiobook over and over again throughout the book - had a lot of trouble connecting with it. Kind of boring. All talk very little action. Dick hills voices drive me crazy sometimes.

    "Consistent with the series"

    It was interesting to go back to Reacher's roots though it got a little tedious. Perhaps the characters a bit less developed but after how many books? I guess we know him at least. The performance was excellently done with inflections, pauses, and accents perfect. Well done.

    "Memories of being a "Brat""

    Reacher still in the army. Lee Child must have been a "Brat" to know about the feelings.. Authentic military too.. I really liked this book

    Story
    "when the Berlin Wall came down"

    my 1st review, though I've listened to many Reacher books. I loved it.

    It's new years eve 1989, the Berlin Wall has come down, unsettling the U.S. Army. Major Reacher is tasked to investigate and smooth over a not suspicious General's death.

    the action, the pacing, and the mystery were exciting accompaniments to my commute. so much so that I picked up tasks at home so I could keep listening. I hope Dick Hall remains the voice for all Jack Reacher books, he is the voice of the Army for me.

    A novitiate, I learned a lot about the Army. One fun fact, military vehicles don't have keys, just a big red button, for obvious reasons it turns out.

    Story
    "They said nothing."

    Oddly, a whole lot of "said nothing" in this book. Maybe it was more obvious because I was listening to it and not reading it, but in every single interaction someone "said nothing". It was bizarre.

    This was my first Jack Reacher book and I guess I expected a whole lot more. The narrator was great but the story was bland and kind of ridiculous...

    Realizing at the very end that, had he just listened to a woman, he would not have had to jump from place to place missing things... Yeah, that was slightly annoying.

    I probably wont listen/read another Reacher book in the near future. Bummer, because Lee Child seems like a pretty cool dude.
