Reacher takes a stroll through a small Wisconsin town and sees a class ring in a pawn shop window: West Point 2005. A tough year to graduate: Iraq, then Afghanistan. The ring is tiny, for a woman, and it has her initials engraved on the inside. Reacher wonders what unlucky circumstance made her give up something she earned over four hard years. He decides to find out. And find the woman. And return her ring. Why not?

I have read or listened to all of the Jack Reacher books and was disappointed in this one. Interesting story line,but it just dragged on and on with no real excitement.

It's been a while since we first met Lee Child's Jack Reacher in Killing Floor. Fifteen years and sixteen novels later, Reacher still lives off the grid, until trouble finds him, and then he does whatever it takes, much to the delight of listeners and the dismay of villains. Now someone big is looking for him. Who? And why? Hunting Jack Reacher is a dangerous business, as FBI Special Agents Kim Otto and Carlos Gaspar are about to find out.

I had to stop half way through. Couldn't take the android like precision pro-nunc-e-a-shun and e-nunc-e-a-shun. Borrowed name of a popular character with no real relevance to story. Even borrowed Cary Grant's real name (Archibald Leach) as a character's name.

Ten years ago, Craig Johnson wrote his first short story, the Hillerman Award-winning "Old Indian Trick". This was one of the earliest appearances of the sheriff who would go on to star in Johnson’s best-selling, award-winning novels and the A&E hit series Longmire. Each Christmas Eve thereafter, fans rejoiced when Johnson sent out a new short story featuring an episode in Walt’s life that doesn’t appear in the novels; over the years, many have asked why they can’t buy the stories in book form.

The humor is one of the things I like most in the Longmire stories. Mr Johnson injects humor, sometimes as dry wit or just plain laugh out loud comments. The characters are believable and the description of places and things make you able to see them, without going into every minute detail. George Guidall's narration could not be any better. He seems to understand the characters and brings them to life.

I enjoyed this book, with one exception, which I will get to. The story was very good, with plenty of action. Some of it was very predictable, but, acceptable. Steven Weber gave a good performance, with one exception, which made me grind my teeth every time he did it. He pronounced corpsman: corpse-man instead of korman. A minor thing to most, but, it was like chalk on a blackboard to me. Don't get me wrong, I like Steven Weber. I always have; in movies and tv. And I liked his performance except for that one thing.

I don't normally write reviews, but I was blown away by the narration by Lou Diamond Phillips. I have enjoyed many of his acting performances, particularly his role in the Longmire TV series, but this is the first time I have listened to a book narrated by him.
The storyline switches back and forth from 30 years prior then back to present day and entertwines them very well telling how they relate. Mr Phillips characterizations are excellent, with the different accents amazing.
I look forward to more of Mr Phillips narrations.

He called her Red. She called him in from the cold. For one short moment in the big, hard city they were friends--and then the girl turned up dead. Mike Hammer will walk through walls to find out who she was and why she died, even if he doesn't like the answers he gets. Even if they are all about a seamy network of call-girls, blackmail, and hoods. Hammer owes something to Red, and he plans to make good-because in this town a friend is hard to find.

First heard of Walt Longmire on the tv series. Loved it. Went back to the first book he wrote and have been listening to them in order. George Guidel does an excellent job narrating especially with the dry wit of The Cherokee. Never disappointed by a Walt Whitmire book by Craig Johnson. Like one of the other reviewers, "I wish Craig would write faster".
