Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Die Trying by Lee Child, read by Jeff Harding.

Jack Reacher, alone, strolling nowhere.

A Chicago street in bright sunshine. A young woman, struggling on crutches. He offers her a steadying arm.

And turns to see a handgun aimed at his stomach.

Chained in a dark van racing across America, Reacher doesn't know why they've been kidnapped. The woman claims to be FBI. She's certainly tough enough. But at their remote destination, will raw courage be enough to overcome the hopeless odds?

Not a favourite

Enjoyed this romp of an adventure. Struggled at times with the narration style, in particular found 'He said / She said' very irritating.

Non stop

Keeps twisting and keeps your attention throughout. Engaging plot and well thought out characters with gripping scenes.

Ridiculous plot

There are so many holes in this plot, it's hard to know where to begin! The kidnappers think nothing of killing the owner of the car they are stealing but don't kill Jack Reacher who just happens to get caught up in the kidnap! To them, he would have been even less important than the car owner and they would have killed him almost immediately.

Bad guys point guns at him countless times - but they never pull the trigger - despite slicing up FBI agents and their own gang members...

Also, it would be almost impossible to group shots with a Barrett rifle at 1000 yards without having first 'zeroed in' the scope with the shooter's eye. At least three practice shots would be required before that grouping could be achieved. Once zeroed in for one shooter, the gun would not shoot accurately for another, unless the eye characteristics were the same, which is extremely unlikely.

Also, why answer the radio when it becomes clear the bad guy only wants to use it to make his demands? If he can't make them, he has no lever.

The FBI agents and Military personnel came across as rank amateurs. Storming the bad guys' fortress in city suits and shoes with a hand gun and no back up? Really?

As for the kidnap victim also being the President's god-daughter - please...

Heroic Thug does it again

There are times when I hear Lee Child's tales I am convinced he is a fully paid-up member of the NRA. He knows his guns, bullets...even the chemical composition of the bullets. He loves brutish army training. He revels in thuggish behaviour in his creation All this makes Reacher a killing monster...but, of course, a monster whose actions are predicated on 'let's kill the bad chaps because they are bad". Nothing else. Were it not for the peerless delivery by Jeff Harding, the tales would be thin, unconvincing, making the likes of Mike Hammer a genius. Having said this it wasn't a bad story...it's worth your time. Try it.

unbelievably excellent Need more Jack Reacher

Brilliant could not put it down. only did so to feed my new born twins, got them to sleep then straight back to it. The book sets the scenes brilliantly you feel like you are there, the story, plot and characters are really good too. All in all I wish I hadnt already read it cause I want to read it for the first time again.

Probably the weakest Reacher

2nd Jack Reacher story and a bit of an anticlimax if you get my drift…
Subsequent stories get better and better, this one is just at the bottom of the pile, sorry but it is.

Where is the real Reacher?

A disappounting story line. Reacher is blocked at every turn, and all attemps to free himself and Holly are in vain until the second last chapter. A frustrating read.
