Publisher's Summary

Number one New York Times best-selling author Lee Child returns with a gripping new powerhouse thriller featuring Jack Reacher, "one of this century's most original, tantalizing pop-fiction heroes" (The Washington Post).

Reacher takes a stroll through a small Wisconsin town and sees a class ring in a pawn shop window: West Point 2005. A tough year to graduate: Iraq, then Afghanistan. The ring is tiny, for a woman, and it has her initials engraved on the inside. Reacher wonders what unlucky circumstance made her give up something she earned over four hard years. He decides to find out. And find the woman. And return her ring. Why not?

So begins a harrowing journey that takes Reacher through the upper Midwest, from a lowlife bar on the sad side of small town to a dirt-blown crossroads in the middle of nowhere, encountering bikers, cops, crooks, muscle, and a missing persons PI who wears a suit and a tie in the Wyoming wilderness.

The deeper Reacher digs, and the more he learns, the more dangerous the terrain becomes. Turns out the ring was just a small link in a far darker chain. Powerful forces are guarding a vast criminal enterprise. Some lines should never be crossed. But then, neither should Reacher.

Abridged NO!

With great anticipation, I listened to "The Midnight Line." I noted with satisfaction, the reader was a familiar one whom I listened to before. as the book unfolded, I became increasingly bored and was unable to feel the intensity that I have heard in any of Lee Child's novels. After the book was over, I was churgrined that I had inadvertently purchased a bridge copy of the book. Unfortunately, the "Abridged" edition was not easy to spot. I am going to return this book and purchase the under bridged version, and I shall re-read it. I will revisit another review. I can only advise readers not to read abridged books.

The Midnight Line

There is no better combination than Lee Child, Dick Hill, and Jack Reacher! Can't wait for the next one!

Can’t continue.

The narrator is too unbearable and painful to continue to listen. Reacher has lost his appeal with this voice.

Reacher at His Best

As a Jack Reacher fan I always enjoy Child's work. Liked involvement with the Academy however brief.
