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.

    "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.

    "my first and last Reacher book"

    I have to say once that movies were much better than the books. I'm not sure if it was the writing for the preschool but it was just a bad but all around.

    Story
    "Flashback Reacher"

    Really clever how he used the easter eggs from previous books but how does he get back to Major? besides that loved the Loyalty of MP's and they are trying to figure it out. One thing kept bothering me : Does anyone think to call General to inquire about all transfers? Good story going to next novel that peaked my interest in this series from the movie

    "Dick Hill is the Best"

    Narrator! I could listen to him read the want ads and be happy but it doesn't detract from this story. Lee Child made a departure in the time line and took us back in time to expand on Reacher's persona. I enjoyed this book immensely!

    "The Enemy by Lee Child"

    I like most of Lee Child's Richer books. This one had more character development than some of the others, and I loved the ending. Once again Dick Hill did a super job

    "Not the best"

    I found the story line mediocre and the narration sub par. Perhaps next one better?
