Publisher's Summary

Lee Child once again demonstrates his mastery of the thriller genre with an unbeatable collection of three Jack Reacher novellas and six short stories, together for the first time in one pulse-pounding collection from the New York Times best-selling author.

Too Much Time: In this original novella featuring Jack Reacher after his time in the army, Reacher finds himself in a hollowed-out town in Maine. He witnesses a random bag-snatching but sees much more than a simple crime, in a tale that leads into Lee Child's new Reacher novel, The Midnight Line.

Small Wars: Lee Child goes back to 1989, when Jack Reacher is an MP assigned to solve the cold-blooded murder of a young officer.

The telex is brief and to the point: one active-duty personnel found shot to death 10 miles north of Fort Smith. Circumstances unknown. The victim was shot twice in the chest and once in the head. A professional hit. The crime scene suggests an ambush. Military police officer Jack Reacher is given the case. He calls his older brother, Colonel Joe Reacher, at the Pentagon for intel and taps Sergeant Frances Neagley to help him answer the big question: Who would kill a brilliant officer on the fast track to greatness?

Not a Drill: Jack Reacher is on the road, hitching a ride with some young Canadians who are planning a hike through the dense forests of Maine. They part ways after sharing a hot meal, and Reacher checks out a quiet town surrounded by countryside serene enough to cool even his raging wanderlust. But not for long. First the trail is suddenly closed. Then the military police show up in force. Maybe it's a drill. Or maybe it's trouble - the kind of trouble that always finds Reacher, no matter how far he travels off the beaten path.

And for the first time on audio, additional stories featuring Jack Reacher, including "James Penney's New Identity", "Everyone Talks", "Maybe They Have a Tradition", "Guy Walks into a Bar", "No Room at the Motel", and "The Picture of the Lonely Diner".

I'm not a fan of short stories, but...

Would you listen to Three More Jack Reacher Novellas again? Why?

Again, I do not care for short stories (like will not read them); however, Lee Child did another amazing trip for Jack Reacher. Several trips as a matter of fact. I thought Lee was as clever as ever and the stories were great, even though shorter than I prefer. Most of them could have been expanded and made into full novels. But I also see that most of them were written in the past so he probably didn't want to revisit them that much.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jack, because he is who he is. And for movie watchers that are considering reading the books - Tom Cruise is not even a close imitation of Jack Reacher.

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

He always does a great job. He and Scott Brick are my favorites.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Just another Reacher experience.

Any additional comments?

Thanks Mr. Child, keep them rolling!

Great for Reacher fans

This is a fun collection of stories that Jack Reacher fans will enjoy. One I had already heard separately, but still very much enjoyed the rest.

A rare ripoff. Some republished, poor story continuity and separation

I read the Loe Reacher story earlier. Paid twice for the same recording. There was often no conclusion or even introduction to distinguish one episode from another. Poor production as well. Narration was the only salvation. Not enough.

Derivative Fiction

I am a Lee Child fan, but these stories left much to be desired. Sounded like derivative work rather than from Lee Child. A bit boring, slow and unimaginative. An easy pass.

Novelettes A+

Thank you Lee Child for another fantastic hit.. or should I say, severals hits with these Novelettes. I enjoyed everyone of them. ...short and sweet. They let me see more of my man, Jack Reacher.. lol
The narrator, Dick Hill is always the best. His talent is perfect for the Jack Reacher and all the characters that make these stories work..

short story

good story. but they could've had more involvement with Reacher.. The endings were to empty. Dick Hill is by far the best narrator for the Reacher stories.I think a little more effort could have been put into the short stories.
