Winter in South Dakota. Blowing snow, icy roads, a tired driver. A bus skids and crashes and is stranded in a gathering storm.
There's a small town 20 miles away, where a vulnerable witness is guarded around the clock. There's a strange stone building five miles further on, all alone on the prairie. There's a ruthless man who controls everything from the warmth of Mexico.
Jack Reacher hitched a ride in the back of the bus. A life without baggage has many advantages. And crucial disadvantages too, when it means facing the arctic cold without a coat. But he's equipped for the rest of his task. He doesn't want to put the world to rights. He just doesn’t like people who put it to wrongs.

I've only just discovered Reacher. Boy, what a hero. I would normally stay well away from such books but I'm hooked. He kicks arse, literally and figuratively. The count down was a train wreck, 61, 51 and on and on to what????? No fingernails left and where's the next book?
I am told that Lee Childs other books are much better - will give them a shot.
This story is implausible on so many levels that suspension of disbelief is more effort than it is worth. It started off well enough, but the identity of the bent cop was painfully obvious from the start and none of the characters were meaningfully developed.
The book is very well read and the narrator did not
“I love all genres of books, however when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
A great book, very well narrated and interesting. Reacher wastes no time in getting to the point. Lee Childs has become a favorite of mine, uncomplicated plots, entertaining characters and very well narrated, never a waste of money
