This was s slower Reacher story with less action than I usual enjoy, but the story was still intriguing enough to binge listen.

I liked Johnathan McClain's narration and he played a great Hoabie. My only gripe is that the transitions between characters is so seamless it's hard to tell when it happens.

Would recommend.

Jack Reacher hits the pavement and sticks out his thumb. He plans to follow the sun on an epic trip across America, from Maine to California. He doesn't get far. On a country road deep in the New England woods, he sees a sign to a place he has never been: the town where his father was born. He thinks, What's one extra day? He takes the detour.

As much as I liked the previous narrator for Lee Child books, Scott Brick does a great job as Reacher and is closer to how I imagine Reacher soundsin my head when I read the physical books. Can recommend!

There is half a dozen or more recordings of this book and I landed on this version after sampling the narrators. Nancy Peterson does a great job! Highly recommended.
