For Jack Reacher being invisible has become a habit. He spends his days digging swimming pools by hand and his nights as the bouncer in the local strip club in the Florida Keys. He doesn't want to be found.
But someone has sent a private detective to seek him out. Then Reacher finds the guy beaten to death with his fingertips sliced off.
It's time to head north and work out who is trying to find him and why.

Cut out all the endless description of every movement, room etc that added nothing to the story or characters.
These days we all own calculators, so endelss calculations of how many seconds how many metres etc were just waffle put in to stretch a poorly developed plot to a never ending story.
I am a fan of all the Reacher stories, but this one was the exception - it was just plain boring.
The reader made things worse, he would be more suited to reading cook books for old ladies.
Why, why would ask anyone else but Jeff Harding to read Reacher ??????
Definitely nothing read by Mr Hagon, sorry mate look for something else to do.
Not many Reacher books left on here, but you can't go wrong with Jeff Harding, he makes bad writers sound good and good writers sound better!
A complete re-write.
None, I would turn it into a first person novel.
"Jack Reacher.. Don't mess with this man"
Reacher novels have me hooked. I was not disappointed by this one and it kept me on the edge of my seat.
"Really poor production spoilt story"
I have to say that whilst we enjoy Jack Reacher stories (and will try another one) this was spoilt by the poor production quality. There was hardly a pause as the reader went from one story line to another making it confusing. There was a persistent hiss in the background and sound quality was poor. Couple this with a boring American drawl and you have poor production. And to cap it all off one of the story lines was left hanging by Lee Child. Damned annoying
I'm listening to The snow flower and the secret fan at the moment.
None, I'd just finish off what the hell happened to Chester Stone and his wife Maryline.
"Not what we expect from an all action hero"
Not sure, maybe
Too much "will they won't they" love interest and not enough action
Reasonable differentiation between characters
Certainly not - we couldn't finish this one
This is the third Jack Reacher audio we've listened to but we couldn't get past the first half. My wife and I both got really bored with his supposed love interest and gave up on it long before the half way point
"Another great Reacher story"
Really enjoyed this 3rd book in the series. Gripping to the end. Well read too.
"Bloody good read!"
They just get better, must go now to down load the next one in the series.
Must go now now
"Excellent - gruesome in parts but a good read"
Narrator fine . Clever plot - loved the whole complicated Vietnam backdrop and all that went with it post war. Hook handed bad guy - loved it!
usual quality for a Reacher story, though I found this one a little predictable, but maybe that was just my frame of mind.
"ok ish "
A bit obvious and lots of padding. Too much irrelevant details. Has written better books
"Fantastic story. Absolutely loved it."
I found it riveting. I enjoyed the way all the various pieces of the puzzle slowly came together. The pace was excellent..
"Good but not great"
The book was reasonable didn't get on with the narrator as well as the other books, I also guessed what the ending was going to be an that ruined it a little. The other books have been great though lee Childs is a good author
