Publisher's Summary

This compilation includes three Jack Reacher novellas and the ultimate fan guide, "Jack Reacher's Rules".

Deep Down: In thriller master Lee Child’s short story "Deep Down", Jack Reacher must track down a spy in soldier’s clothing - by matching wits with four formidable females. Three are clean - but the fourth may prove fatal.

Summoned by Military Intelligence to Washington, D.C., Reacher is sent undercover. The assignment that awaits him: The army is meeting with its Capitol Hill paymasters for classified talks on a new, state-of-the-art sniper rifle for U.S. forces. But vital details about the weapon are leaking - straight from the Capitol and probably into the hands of unidentified foreign arms dealers. The prospect of any and every terrorist, mercenary, or dictator’s militia getting their hands on the latest superior firepower is unthinkable. That’s where Reacher comes in. His task: infiltrate the top-secret proceedings and smoke out the mole. His target: a quartet of high-powered Army political liaison officers - all of them fast-track women on their way to the top.

According to his bosses, it’s a zero-danger mission. No need to draw a gun...just chat over drinks. But Reacher knows that things are rarely what they seem. And he’s learned the hard way never to underestimate an opponent. Or four. Lessons that will come in handy when he starts digging for the truth - and gets his hands a lot dirtier than he expected.

Second Son: A young Jack Reacher knows how to finish a fight so it stays finished. He knows how to get the job done so it stays done. And, in one of his earliest challenges, he knows that his analytical brain is just as important as his impressive brawn.

Okinawa, 1974: Even at 13, Jack Reacher knows how to outwit and overpower anyone who stands in his way. And as the new kid in town, that’s pretty much everyone. His family has come to the Pacific with his father, who’s preparing for a top-secret Marine Corps operation. After receiving a rude welcome from the local military brats, Reacher and his older brother, Joe, intend to teach them a lesson they won’t forget. But it’s soon clear that there’s more at stake than pride. When his family’s future appears to come crumbling down, it’s the youngest Reacher who rises to the occasion with all the decisive cunning and bravura that will one day be his deadly trademark.

High Heat: In the midst of a savage heat wave and an infamous murder spree, a blackout awakens the dark side of the city that never sleeps - and a young Jack Reacher takes action as only he can.

July 1977: Jack Reacher is almost 17, and he stops in New York City on the way to visit his brother at West Point. The summer heat is suffocating, the city is bankrupt, and the mad gunman known as Son of Sam is still on the loose. Reacher meets a woman with a problem, and agrees to help her...but then the power grid fails and the lights go out, plunging the lawless city into chaos. What does a visiting teenager do in the dark? If that visiting teenager is Jack Reacher, the answer is plenty.

Jack Reacher's Rules: "Jack Reacher’s Rules" is the ultimate fan’s guide to the World of Reacher! Featuring selections from all 17 electrifying Jack Reacher novels and an introduction from Lee Child himself, this one-of-a-kind audiobook compiles timeless advice from maverick former army cop Jack Reacher, the hero of Lee Child’s blockbuster thrillers and now the star of a major motion picture.

Reacher was Reacher as a boy

All three of these were entertaining and gave us a young Reacher with the superhuman powers his fans have come to expect. Second Son sounded very familiar and I'm pretty sure that the story was included in one of the full-length novels in the series. Not only were Reacher's physical abilities developed at an early age, so were his cognitive skills and powers of deduction. I was a little disappointed at Jack Reacher's Rules as they went beyond the premise and were often repetitive. All in all, Reacher fans will enjoy this listen.

Disappointed!!

What would have made Three Jack Reacher Novellas (with Bonus Jack Reacher's Rules) better?

The fact that it had only one new novella was VERY disappointing. The Rules part was just taking up time, everyone who has read Jack Reacher knows his rules and they are better when in the context of a story. The narrator, Dick Hill, is always good, he just did'nt have any new stuff to read this time.

Would you ever listen to anything by Lee Child again?

Of course

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

They are one of the few I will relisten to and like as much as the first time. There is no comparison with this one. Like I said, a disappointment.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The one new novella

Any additional comments?

I will get any book with Dick Hill/Lee Child again. But maybe not any more novellas

Very Disappointing

Don't waste your time or credit. As a big Reacher fan, I am always excited to get something new. I started not to purchase this one as I am not a fan of short stories in general. But it was Reacher, so I went against my better judgment. Big mistake. Lee Child should not have listened to whomever told him this was a good idea. Disappointing is an understatement.

This review covers only Second Son

Second Son provides excellent background on Jack Reacher as a child. His brother Joe as well as his parents (actually, him mom leaves to visit her dad in France early in the story). Second Son is the best of all of the Jack Reacher short stories/novellas. It is must reading for Jack Reacher fans.

Not my favorite

I enjoyed the story about his childhood though. It explains a lot about his character. Wasn't a fan of the Rules. If you're a Jack Reacher follower, you already know this stuff. It was just blah blah blah stuff for me.

Best story

This was my first Jack Reacher experience and I was so disappointed when I reach my destination and had to stop listening. Great story and Dick Hill is Jack Reacher. Hope to find another as good.

Good, but repeats and cost too much

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

These short stories were enjoyable, but the Second Son is basically a section from another book, I had already listened to, so it was kind of a rip-off. Deep down was very short. High Heat was good. Liked it. Reacher's rules is also good, although many parts of it seem to be excerpts and one liners from the various other Reacher books. This collection should cost about 3 to 5 bucks and not use up a full-book credit. It is totally worth having, but it costs too much.

What do you think your next listen will be?

The next Reacher

And reacher said nothing

Would you consider the audio edition of Three Jack Reacher Novellas (with Bonus Jack Reacher's Rules) to be better than the print version?

Always..... Dick hill IS Jack reacher in my head. I can't read any of the reacher material with out hearing his voice.

What other book might you compare Three Jack Reacher Novellas (with Bonus Jack Reacher's Rules) to and why?

Nothing

What does Dick Hill and Lee Child bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Dick hill IS Jack reacher.... He's done all 20 some odd books. He's Jack reacher the way James marsters is Harry Dresden

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

Not that kinda book

Any additional comments?

Be a reacher creature...... Read more reacher....
