Publisher's Summary

Jack Reacher. Hero. Loner. Soldier. Soldier's son. An elite military cop, he was one of the army's brightest stars. But in every cop's life there is a turning point. One case. One messy, tangled case that can shatter a career. Turn a lawman into a renegade. And make him question words like honor, valor, and duty. For Jack Reacher, this is that case.

New Year's Day, 1990. The Berlin Wall is coming down. The world is changing. And in a North Carolina "hot-sheets" motel, a two-star general is found dead. His briefcase is missing. Nobody knows what was in it. Within minutes Jack Reacher has his orders: Control the situation. But this situation can't be controlled. Within hours the general's wife is murdered hundreds of miles away. Then the dominoes really start to fall.

Two Special Forces soldiers - the toughest of the tough - are taken down, one at a time. Top military commanders are moved from place to place in a bizarre game of chess. And somewhere inside the vast worldwide fortress that is the U.S. Army, Jack Reacher - an ordinarily untouchable investigator for the 110th Special Unit - is being set up as a fall guy with the worst enemies a man can have.

But Reacher won't quit. He's fighting a new kind of war. And he's taking a young female lieutenant with him on a deadly hunt that leads them from the ragged edges of a rural army post to the winding streets of Paris to a confrontation with an enemy he didn't know he had. With his French-born mother dying - and divulging to her son one last, stunning secret - Reacher is forced to question everything he once believed...about his family, his career, his loyalties - and himself. Because this soldier's son is on his way into the darkness, where he finds a tangled drama of desperate desires and violent death - and a conspiracy more chilling, ingenious, and treacherous than anyone could have guessed.

Don't miss any of Jack Reacher's adventures.

    Story
    "One of the best"

    I loved this book. I learned a great deal about Reacher's mother. She was very special. Since I haven't read these in order but have bounced around the series, I'm especially glad I read this one for that reason. Plus it was a good story anyway.

    "First Reacher Audiobook"

    I've enjoyed reading Reacher novels in the past, but it doesn't compare to a well narrated audio book. The story was excellent, and moreso because of the outstanding presentation. I look forward to listening again soon.

    "This one can wait"

    I enjoy the Jack reacher stories and Lee Childs writings but I have to say this was my least favorite so far. Very slow to develop and a less compelling climax.

    "I said nothing"

    I loved this book. Wonderful story and some insight to Jacks' previous life in the military. That said, the "I said nothing" phrase that was repeatedly used got very old very fast.

    Story
    "Reacher Begins"

    Overall, this is a great listen. As a Reacher fan, this entry covers the hows and why's of his military career as an MP. As always, Dick Hill delivers as the narrator. My only complaint is the author's tendency to get buried in detail occasionally that does not move the story line forward. Otherwise, another chapter of classic Reacher

    "Best story so far in the series"

    If you are following the order of books this one seems to chronologically come before the rest. However, like all of the books you can pick it up and read it without having read any of the other books in the series. In my personal opinion this has been the best story of all the reacher novels so far (books 1 through 7).

    Story
    "Best Reacher Novel since Killing Floor"

    The revelation of Jack Reachers service within the army in this novel bring out the best in Lee Child's storytelling abilities.
    AND the inclusion of his own mother's passing really hit home. Made it feel personal. Brought out a variety of emotions throughout the story.
    Child's ability to weave multiple aspects of military life and human behavior into a mystery a rare art form.

    Regarding this story's audio presentation: some sound effects, the audio filtration, and variety of voices and accents made for fantastic story-telling. Like a radio show.
