Publisher's Summary

Two small towns in Colorado: Hope and Despair. Between them, nothing but 12 miles of empty road. Jack Reacher can't find a ride, so he walks. All he wants is a cup of coffee. What he gets are four redneck deputies who want to run him out of town.

Pleasant surprise

When I started listening to this I thought 'oh no' (and apologies to all Clint Eastwood fans) this sounds exactly like him in Dirty Harry but after awhile I got used to it and found the book gripping. I really really enjoyed it even though one or two parts of it were a bit far fetched (didn't think one man would really be standing after being attacked by six men - but then John McLean managed it in Die Hard I and II and III :-) so maybe I am being too hard).

All in all great book, great story, great reading, one part I found a bit disturbing because I could really see how some nutcase could be thinking upon those lines. I don't think the author is a great fan of G Bush and I think hidden was a bit of a political message but all in all great - enjoy.

Worst Lee Child Book from Jack Reacher Series

I'm a Lee Child fan, but this book lacked anything new. If you're a fan you'll spot the similar story pieces from his other books. This was a real let down and I wouldn't recommend it! Sorry :(

Dark and totally enthralling

If you like Lee child and enjoy the Jack reacher books this one is a must!

Everything you have come to expect and enjoy about this character is brought to life. Well written as always and a perfect reading make this one of the best audio books I have heard for a long time.

missing lots from the book!

I downloaded this audiobook and was suddenly surprised how short it is, compared to jeff harding version.

I then decided to download both books and listen to them both. This book has many missing sections from the novel! not happy with the buy at all.
