Publisher's Summary

New Year's Day, 1990. A soldier is found dead in a sleazy motel bed. Jack Reacher is the officer on duty.

The soldier turns out to be a two-star general. The situation is bad enough, then Reacher finds the general's wife.

This stomach-churning thriller turns back the clock to a younger Reacher, in dogtags. A Reacher who still believes in the service. A Reacher who imposes army discipline. Even if only in his own pragmatic way...

    Story
    "Another brilliant Jack Reacher book by Lee Child"
    Where does The Enemy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The Enemy is of a very high standard and very much like Lee Child's other Jack Reacher books, an in-depth journey into Whitehouse politics and murder


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    You cannot rate anyone in a Jack Reacher book any higher than Jack Reacher himself. A very convincing portrait of an ex-army policeman with all the skills, knowledge and experience of someone who grew-up as an army child


    What does Jeff Harding bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I believe Jeff Harding is one of the greatest US voice-over artists that has ever been used to read USA-based audio books. As a blind reader of thriller audio books, I have listened to a large number of his audio books and I marvel at his capacity to not only make the books interesting but to read in so many different voices and dialects, even British English on some occasions! I rate Jeff as one of the best.


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

    Without giving much away, the scene where the vice President was visiting a homeless shelter to serve lunch was the most moving part of the book


    Any additional comments?

    I rate this book as one of the best in the Jack Reacher series.... although I must say, I have already read seven and they are all brilliant

    Story
    "Another good Reacher Novel"
    What did you like most about The Enemy?

    The story was well planned out and kept me guessing.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Jeff Harding narrating made it all the more easy to listen to, he is the best.


    Which character – as performed by Jeff Harding – was your favourite?

    Jack Reacher.


    Any additional comments?

    Another great Jack Reacher novel. The plot was interesting and action packed. If you like the series or the genre you'll like the enemy, a real listener/page turner.

    Story
    "Another excelent Jack Reacher novel."

    With a gripping story line and excellent narration this was another excelent thriller from one of the best modern writers of today. This is my third Lee Child audio book in a row and will probably be my next choice when my next credit comes due.

    Story
    ""I said nothing!""
    If you could sum up The Enemy in three words, what would they be?

    I said nothing!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Enemy?

    The annoyance I felt at his disregard for Army protocols which seemed out of character but perhaps a means to an end in terms of the wider plot.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The dinner scene in Germany


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Never has such an engaging story had so many statements saying that he/she/they/we/I said nothing. Although the story didn't take a genius to figure out the perpetrator(s) it was clearly going to be tough for Reacher to do his thing. At first I thought thi
