What she doesn't tell Reacher - but what he soon discovers - is that a very real and deadly team of assassins has just put the VP in their sights and will stop at nothing to realize their objective. These men have planned well, but they haven't planned on Reacher. For only Reacher has the head and the heart to corner his prey and bring them to justice - without fail.
Don't miss any of Jack Reacher's adventures.

“The book is a joyride for listeners, full of false leads, dead ends, concussive bursts of action, and characters who are fully realized and individual. This is as much fun as an audiobook performance can be.” (AudioFile)
“The sixth time's a charm for thriller meister Child, whose latest escapade starring ex-military cop Jack Reacher is handily his most accomplished and most compelling to date.” (Publisher’s Weekly)
“…a thriller of unequaled emotional depth.” (Booklist)
I really miss Mitch Rapp and i am trying hard to find a replacement. I do think that Jack has the potential but the story is so slow, and long. It is getting better now that I manage to start the second part - but it was an effort to get here. Not sure I will be able to finish.
Slow and not so interesting
I like Dick Hill, he is ok
none in particular, just more actions
I am seriously considering giving up on Jack Reacher's series. He is not even close to become my Mitch Rapp's replacement - maybe the Gray Man might.
Yes down the road awhile. I like the book and After I read the rest of my book, or listen to them I could do this book again
I usualy wish it keeps going, but that is not Reacher
Don't have one
Just on the edge of my chair
I would not recommend this book to anyone due to the extremely bad reason for the entire novel. You learn a lot about the secret service but the motive in this story was completely unbelievable and ridiculous. Not his best work at all.
Yes I would listen to Lee Child again as he is a great writer.
Dick Hill is one of the best narrators in the business.
No....I felt the story up until the motive of the crime behind the entire story was revealed was pretty good. The motive made me feel like I wasted a lot of my time. I am still shaking my head.
No his best but that will not stop me from reading more.
The plot was weak. The characters are likable and the reader is good.
Emotion and personality.
Lee Child is a fine author and Dick Hill is easy to listen to. I've read many of these, produced by both of them, and enjoy them. This was no exception. Well worth the listen and well worth the price!
Mr. Child has a great imagination but it is necessary to suspend disbelief to get past some rather unlikely events. The USSS would not give any private person (military experience or not) carte blanche as was done in this book.
Further research could have been done to assure accuracy. For example - Glocks do not have external safety's. This is something the writer should have known. Maybe I'm just too picky.
I enjoyed his performance. Great, as usual.
This story puts Reacher in a more conformist mode being on the inside working with Secrete Service instead of a rogue doing good his way. Good read but not the best Reacher novel.
Tell us about yourself!
It is always amusing to me that Jack Reacher, who would prefer to be an anonymous wanderer, gets pulled into so many different scenarios. Some are by accident and others, when his expertise is required, take someone some clever investigating to track him down.
This is one of those “find him” episodes. His expertise is needed for an issue with the Vice President. His experience as a sniper and an investigator take him on a dash across the US and a final resolution that is very Reacher. This is a well developed story with a few more tidbits about Jack’s past. It builds from the introduction to the conflict and through the adrenaline rush to an unusual conclusion.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Jack Reacher is one of my favorite characters. I will definitely continue my journey through all of the episodes.
As usual, Dick Hill is an excellent choice for narrating any Reacher novel.
Probably not, there wasn't enough action for me
Yes, some of my friend's like him because he's interesting, I like him in action, like head butting, breaking bones, twisting neck's and blowing the bad guy to hell and back...
Love his Book's
It was a good book, I just like a lot of action....
JACK REACHER, ultimate loner, owns nothing, has no ties, restless, on the move, ex military. i think stregnth and honor is his motto. we find reacher approached by a newbie secret service employee she would like jack to try to penetrate the net of protection woven about the vice president.. of course jack can get to him 6 ways from sunday. little does he know a real assasination plot is afoot. now it all gets dicey and it's up to Jack to protect and serve. dick hill is the voice of this series. great job narration, the tension, pacing keeps you listening into the night .
