Sergeant Amy Callan and Lieutenant Caroline Cooke have a lot in common. Both were army high-flyers. Both were acquainted with Jack Reacher. Both were forced to resign from the service. Now they're both dead.
Found in their own homes, naked, in a bath full of paint. Apparent victims of an army man. A loner, a smart guy with a score to settle, a ruthless vigilante. A man just like Jack Reacher.

No, it's too hard to listen to with Hayward Morse narrating. He makes Jack Reacher sound like a dufus, and all the women sound whiney. I love Jack Reacher books, this is so far the only one I haven't enjoyed, and that is because of the narration. Not the best of the Reacher series either, a little bit predictable unfortunately. Still love every other Reacher book though.
He didn't give a great portrayal of Jack Reacher with the voice he chose to use for him, made him seem slow and a bit dull. Jeff Harding and Dick Hill do an awesome job of narrating Reacher, (and all of the other characters in the books) just not Hayward Morse. If this was the first Reacher book I listened to, I would have given up.
Try any of the other Reacher books narrated by Jeff Harding or Dick Hill.
The funniest book yet. For a hardcore pulp fiction like book its very funny, in a good way. Clever humor as a natural part of the story.
As usual the story as a whole and the way all the pieces delightful fit together.
Help! The series is sooo addictive I cant stop listening!
YES! Tired now.
"Reacher Carries on"
As good as expected, a well paced performance
The moment where the murderer was found and the action in the bathroom during that scene
This book just kept you interested pulling you along at a stead pace.
Only got 20 minutes in before I could take no more
Very unfortunate as the first 3 and number 5 were excellent. Jeff Harding has capyured Reacher to a tee
"Great story let down by poor narration"
A different narrator
Reacher, Jack Reacher is the reason I buy these books.
Poor and inconsistent voice acting. I.e. one characters voice bled into another. No pauses for new paragraphs, I could keep going but I don't have time
Most definitely the narrator, it was not enjoyable at all to listen to...I only persevered because I am going through the Jack Reacher series
When Hayward Morse finished reading.
Everything! but most especially his women's voices...they sounded like no woman I have ever heard
I enjoyed the story and quietly pleased that Reacher did not behave out of character by giving up his roamings
I've got most of Lee Child's audiobooks & have enjoyed them, but if this had been the first book I'd listen to I doubt I would've got to the others.
The whole thing is ruined by the narrator, he make Jack Reacher sound like an idiot, I half expected to hear D'oh (from the Simpsons each time he spoke). I won't even try to guess what women he's heard speak, because his interpretation is terrible.
I has to give up after 30mins because it was driving me mad, I'd rather listen to finger nails down a blackboard.
Changer the narrator
His tone, his interpretation of Jack Reachers speech & his female characters speech
Don't know I only made it through 30mins
Re-record this book with Jeff Harding as the narrator
"Decent story let down by narrator"
Jack Reacher novels are not hard to digest and much like watching a Die Hard/ Jason Statham/ Arnie movie... full of cliches. But they pass the time entertainingly enough.
I have listened to four now; Killing Floor, Die Trying, Trip Wire and now The Visitor.
Hayward Morse narrates all the women, who are supposedly smart, intelligent and capable (FBI agents, high flying solicitors, detectives,) with whiny, nasal voices that makes anything they stupid, pathetic and two dimensional. The intonation he uses in their given lines is appalling and really spoils the book. Such a shame as this one has quite a passable story line.
Never made it to the end of this book the narration has put me right off. I think it's terrible.
"Another cracker from Lee Child"
Another quality book from Lee Child, thankfully without any of the god-awful muzak that spoils other Lee Child Audible audio books. Hayward Morse does a reasonable job of the reading except for his female characterisations which are so bad as to be comical. One woman is personified as Liberace, another I could swear is Truman Capote, and I’m sure I heard Madame Gasket, the main antagonist in the animated film “Robots” in there somewhere. It can be a bit off-putting especially where the female character is supposed to be spectacularly beautiful. Other than that, it’s a keeper.
