Publisher's Summary

Never forgive; never forget.

Jack Reacher lives for the moment. Without a home. Without commitment. But he has a burning desire to right wrongs - and rewrite his own agonizing past.

Never apologize. Never explain.

When Reacher witnesses a brutal kidnap attempt, he takes the law into his own hands. But a cop dies. Has Reacher lost his sense of right and wrong?

One of my favourite Reacher stories!

I loved this story! I've read the first 10 books in the Reacher series and this is in my top 3. A few nice twists, and some surprises got me hooked within the first 20 minutes.

Dick Hill was great in the narration of this one (even though I got used to his voice reading some Bosch stories which was a hard image to shake), and the story develops well and keeps the tension building. Maybe there's a bit too much detail when Reacher takes down one of the enemies, which is not for the faint hearted but a well-written book that I'd highly recommend!

Good work, Lee and well read, Dick!

My 7 th in the Jack Reacher series, all excellent.

What made the experience of listening to Persuader the most enjoyable?

The wonderful nail biting build up to the final battle.

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

yes. Buy bringing me into the world of Jack Reacher, I felt as though I was there.

Which scene was your favorite?

The last one when he battles Paulie.

Any additional comments?

I think Dick Hill is the best narrator for these books, the others are good but I think for Jack Reacher he is the best.

Gripping

Another superb title in the Jack Reacher series. I start listening to these titles and simply can't stop, I listen to it at the gym, in the car, out shopping.. Everywhere. The author has crafted an amazing character in Reacher, his whole character carries from book to book allowing the reader to really get to know him. The storyline is well researched and grounded in the real world with a fantastic pace brought by the narrator and some great characterisations for the support cast. Jack reacher at his deadly best!

Not one of his best

A thin storyline embellished by over the top jousts with the baddies. Little intrigue or suspense in this storyline. And oh how we missed you Jeff Harding.

Over Reacher

So, I've made it to book 7 and my worst fears have been confirmed; the story of Jack Reacher's life is a Groundhog Day. His only saving grace in this recurring humdrum is that he gets to beat up a different guy and sleep with a different woman on each outing.

I really do not like being so bluntly negative so I'll close out now before I start on chronological confusion and text repetition. (Damn, I almost did!)

Pretty good

I wouldn't say that Persuader is the best Jack reacher but it was entertaining. The performance by Dick Hill was good but the large dramatic pauses made me think I had it paused the app a few times.

Good suspence ride

2nd listen and enjoyed twice. Good performance and suits character. if you like edge of the seat stuff and action story telling then you'll have fun with this one. if course its stretched the reality and that makes you hold your breath for minutes at a time.

Not Lee Child'd best work but ok

In my opinion, Persuader is no where near as good as, for example, Tripwire or Echo Burning. But still worth a listen for Reacher fans. His Female lead Duffy is kind of boring too. Read well by Dick Hill. Good performance there.

Good story with a gripping ending.

What did you like most about Persuader?

The lead up to the end was brilliant! The intensity in which it is read gripped me to the point I actually clapped. The shift between past and present in the story was done excellently and had me completely engrossed in the story from start to finish.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Persuader?

Without a doubt the lead up to the end absolutely fantastic.

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

Dick Hill is Jack Reacher for me, I have Without Fail on CD read by him and he is in my opinion the best, he does the secondary character voices better than anyone else and reads the story extremely well. The very best!!!
