Publisher's summary

When Jack Reacher Makes Mistakes, Who Handles The Fall-Out?

FBI Special Agents Kim Otto and Carlos Gaspar’s off-the-books assignment leads them to the surviving members of Jack Reacher’s elite military unit. Five years ago, Reacher sorted and destroyed a team of arms dealers before he moved on. But he made mistakes. Now, his bad luck and trouble legacy plunges Otto and Gaspar into the minefield of a grudge war between Reacher’s fearless old friends and chilling new enemies.

When his enemies take women and children hostage for ransom, Kim’s relentless pursuit leads her deeper into the deadly war Reacher failed to finish. Mercenaries and Kim’s unwavering heart push her through - until she meets the wrong woman with nothing to lose.

Interesting story based on...

Bad Luck and Trouble, Jack Reacher Book 11. The 2 FBI agents continue their fruitless search for Jack Reacher this time they find Frances Neagley, Reacher's sergeant from his MP days. (Neagley also appears in Without Fail, Book 6, and The Affair, Book 16 as well as in one of the Reacher novellas. She is likely the old squad mate to whom he is closest, although the relationship is platonic.) Neagley has a large security business in Chicago.

The book is quite good, but the narration is not. Kelley Hazen's voice is simply wrong for he book.

Don't waste your time.

What disappointed you about Get Back Jack?

The whole premise of these books is that they have something to do with the Jack Reacher character from Lee Child's books. They really don't, but in this one some of the other characters from the Jack Reacher stories are used, that's the whole story. I've made it to chapter 10 in this second one and I can go no further, it's unbearable.

If you’ve listened to books by Diane Capri before, how does this one compare?

This is the second one and it might be slightly better than "You don't know Jack" but if so it's only because of the familiar names/characters from the Reacher novels. The juvenile nick names the lead characters have for each other are so out of place it's like chalk on a black board. Other little touches that I find annoying are phrases like "she looked at her Sieko", repeatedly. In the real world people glance at their watch. "she was thinking, in her head" (where else?)

How did the narrator detract from the book?

She is just terrible. Her cadence is off, pauses in the wrong places, and the male lead character's voice is impossible. I've tried this second book thinking maybe I could get used to her but it's not going to happen. Interestingly, she occasionally seems to go along reasonably smoothly for short periods and then reverts right back to robot mode.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Get Back Jack?

I'm not sure any of it is worth saving.

Any additional comments?

No, I think I've given it a good try, just can't do it. I'm returning these.

I do wonder if the stories would be a bit more interesting if someone like Dick Hill was doing the narration. What's done is done so that's it for me.

love story with Jack Reacher books

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

First let me start this review saying that I've never written a bad review in my life. I know the impact that they cause as I've made choices myself based on reviews. I gave this a lot of thought.

For the last several months I have devoured all of Lee Child's Jack Reacher series and loved them! Dick Hill does an incredible job! Then I listened to the last available book and immediately began searching for more similar books as this type of read was new to me being primarily a historical story reader/listener.

Then I ran across this series which contained many of the same characters so I thought "score"!! Story line is good but OH MY the narrarating was painful to listen to. Suffice to say I am returning it today after many attempts to get past the Gaspar voice and the attempt at what reminded me of the Dragnet (dating myself and apologies to the younger folks reading this) narrator Hal Gibney which was a great black and white tv series back in the 1950's (I saw reruns - ha). It worked fabulously for that series.

Perhaps this book would be best read the old fashioned way and I may try that as I thought the story was good if not a little weird as it was all about Reacher - there must be a relationship between Lee Child and Get Back Jack's author Diane Capri as if there were not there would be no way that this book and the entire series would have been published.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Narrating was so laborious that I lost the story line at times.

What didn’t you like about Kelley Hazen and StorytellerProductions ’s performance?

Horrible narrating.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

couldnt get through chapter 7 sadly.

EDGE OF YOUR SEAT STORY/ KICKASS NARRATION

What did you love best about Get Back Jack?

The story is very intricate. We meet a lot of new folks all from Jack's past and they are all scary. The way the story unfolds it's almost a 'ripped from the headlines' feel. We get to be a part of a full blown FBI insurgence.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The Hunt For Reacher stories always feel to be in real time. Capri keeps us turning the pages and this one is no different. There is a knife's edge tension that permeates the entire experience.

What about Kelley Hazen Storyteller Productions’s performance did you like?

Solid and strong. I've listened to all so far & can't imagine a better narrator for the 'Hunt for Reacher' series. Lots of characters kept very separate and clear. The narrator really adds to that 'on the edge of your seat' experience. She lets me know Otto and Gaspar intimately. The dry straightforward approach matches Capri's writing.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

TOP NOTCH

Any additional comments?

This is #4 in the 'Hunt for Reacher' series by Diane Capri and it does not disappoint. It's the best mystery yet, takes us all over the US. The characters and scenes are vivid and frightening, the relationships are deepening and becoming like old friends, the dialogue and writing are smart and well communicated by the narrator, Hazen. I was on the edge of my seat and late to several appointments because I could not stop listening. It's a wild ride of tension. I didn't want it to end. Bravo Diane Capri! Don't stop the Hunt for Reacher!

Destroys the Reacher Character

Destroys the Reacher character. Not in line with the series at all. The Reacher Character built by Child is not the same Reacher in this series. It's like the author hasnt read the series.

Robotic

The storyline was fairly good, the narrator for audible was just to robotic. It needed more feeling and more dramatization.

This Series Just Gets Worse

go read my reviews on 1,2,3, in the series. The first book was hopeful as you thought it really was going to be a search for Reacher-wrong- lousy, stupid FBI agents. As one reviewer on amazon put it ' Diane Capri Don't Know Jack'! Its hard to believe that Lee Child allows this raping of character.

I got an hour and 39 minutes into this one and threw up my hands. I cant listen anymore. Now Gaspar, who has had a hard-on for Reacher since the beginning has down a total about face-for no reason at all. Not a slow I have realized I was wrong approach , just a plain about face.

And the narrators voice just gets worse too. Her voice of Gaspar has been grating since the beginning and now it seems to have filtered over to Otto.

The story seems to go now where, hardly about searching for Reacher at all. I am going to go get my credit back!

Poor male character voicing

Would you try another book from Diane Capri and/or Kelley Hazen Storyteller Productions?

I did not like the reading with the choice of male tone voices. It was irritating to me. Story was fine. mkhalter:)

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Yes, male voices
