Publisher's Summary

New York City. Two in the morning. A subway car heading uptown. Jack Reacher, plus five other passengers. Four are okay. The fifth isn't.

In the next few tense seconds, Reacher will make a choice and trigger an electrifying chain of events in this gritty, gripping masterwork of suspense by #1 New York Times best seller Lee Child.

Susan Mark was the fifth passenger. She had a lonely heart, an estranged son, and a big secret. Reacher, working with a woman cop and a host of shadowy feds, wants to know just how big a hole Susan Mark was in, how many lives had already been twisted before hers, and what danger is looming around him now.

Because a race has begun through the streets of Manhattan in a maze crowded with violent, skilled soldiers on all sides of a shadow war. Susan Mark's plain little life was critical to dozens of others in Washington, California, Afghanistan...from a former Delta Force operator now running for the U.S. Senate, to a beautiful young woman with a fantastic story to tell and to a host of others who have just one thing in common: They're all lying to Reacher. A little. A lot. Or maybe just enough to get him killed.

In a novel that slams through one hairpin surprise after another, Lee Child unleashes a thriller that spans three decades and gnaws at the heart of America...and for Jack Reacher, a man who trusts no one and likes it that way, it's a mystery with only one answer: the kind that comes when you finally get face-to-face and look your worst enemy in the eye.

Take another thrill ride with Jack Reacher.

Infantile

A pretty shallow story with an overly dramatic reader. I returned this book. I won’t be downloading any more of Lee Child’s books.

To Me, The Least Compelling of Reacher Stories

This book was OK. But it seemed sort of shallow by comparison to most of the other Reacher stories. If you are a Reacher fan, of course you will want to read it. And you will enjoy it as well. But in my opinion, it just wasn't quite on par with the rest of the series to date.

Graphic violence

Would you try another book from Lee Child and/or Dick Hill?

I didn't like the voice of the reader. He sounded like some gangster, and my husband and I had to turn the volume off when the violence got too graphic to listen to. I didn't love it.

What could Lee Child have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Cut the graphic violence.

How could the performance have been better?

Get a reader who sounded more like the character should be.

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

The Reacher Novels

Would you listen to Gone Tomorrow again? Why?

All of the Reacher novels seem to be similar but they are enertaining and I have read them all.
