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.

We are told lies constantly

Would you listen to Gone Tomorrow again? Why?

No! As soon as I heard the lies within the story in part two, I immediately stopped listening. I know that 9/11 was a plan to start a war. This story is good for anyone that wants to believe the lies that the media, government, president at the time, and others feed us. The people that died had families, loved ones, children, and did matter. The fact is the towers were rigid with bombs and many people heard and felt the bombs explode before the planes hit the twin towers. And let's not forge the tower that went down that was not even hit by a plane. Months after the twin towers went down, there was molten lava underground. Only chemicals and explosives could have done that, but so much truth is kept from us Americans. I know the book is fiction, but really...were is your integrity as a writer and as a human being for the greater good of the whole? I believe in truth and integrity. I believe in writing coming from my heart and I always follow my heart. This book was very disturbing and morally wrong.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Gone Tomorrow?

When the lies wear told.

Which character – as performed by Dick Hill – was your favorite?

Dick Hill is a fabulous reader. I love his voice.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes and disturbed me completely that I was forced to STOP listening. I do not desire to listen to anymore lies...even if it is fiction because so many people are feed lies by the media already.

Any additional comments?

I am sorry I ever listened to this book.

Excellent from start to finish

What made the experience of listening to Gone Tomorrow the most enjoyable?

The first several pages got me hooked. This is definitely one of the best Lee Child has to offer.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Gone Tomorrow?

The start of this novel was quite amazing, there just was no way to predict what would happen next.

What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

He has the ability to get you involved with a story's characters. He can really capture the thrilling moments as well as the background narrative. The audio felt very real without being melodramatic.

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

An unexplained suicide on the subway, Why? Reacher tracks down the answers with you hanging on to his coat tails on a spiraling ride to a conclusion that you can't even imagine.

Any additional comments?

I loved it

If you like Child You'll Love This

You get sucked in and stay sucked. The characters are more real in this novel then in some of his others. This Is CHILD. Jack at his most intense, unemotional. realistic best. If you've been there, this novel will really put you back there. If you haven't, you won't want to go. But You still understand.
That's a great author. And an even greater character.
thanks Lee.

Reacher humor

Would you listen to Gone Tomorrow again? Why?

I love the extra sarcastic humor added to Reacher's character. He has just the right dig for the "bad guys."

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

Reacher is always in the thick of things. He is always thinking, assessing and moving to the next tense moment.

Have you listened to any of Dick Hill’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Dick Hill has nailed the Jack Reacher character, and makes new characters believable as well.

Fine Reacher, get some background

Of course some of this plot is implausible, it's a Jack Reacher story, for Heaven's sake. There is some good back ground stuff, you get to meet people who already know Reacher better than you do, his peers. It's a whole different view of him. I got lost a couple of times during the plot, I'm not sure why but I was not sure where we were at some moments. Perhaps I should have kept a score card.
The narration was wonderful, Dick Hill's characterizations were clear, and there was an excellent sense of drama at just the right moments.

Not a life-changing read but very entertaining!

This is my first Lee Child novel. I felt it was a good read, very movie-like and I might pick up another book in the series soon. But this book did not impact my life in any meaningful way.

A good listen

Where does Gone Tomorrow rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

A good listen. I have been on a Reacher kick lately and have faded a touch with Gone Tomorrow. Over all a good book that would recommend.

Have you listened to any of Dick Hill’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

As always Dick Hill does an amazing job

Who doesn't love a flawed superhero

Guiltiest pleasure! He is a very human Superhero. Yes there are serious moments when you must suspend all belief, but who cares. Reacher is 007, Hemingway, Robin Hood, Han Solo, and every tough guy Steve McQueen and Paul Newman ever played all rolled into one tough wise cracking Boy Scout.

This is one of my favorite books in the series and I have read and listened to every single one written. FUN, action packed, no over involved sex scenes, just Reacher kicking butt and taking no prisioners.

If you are looking for great escapism, look no further!

Dick Hill gets a little dramatic but it works for this series.
