Description

NUMBER ONE NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER •

In the next highly anticipated installment of Lee Child’s acclaimed suspense series, Jack Reacher comes to the aid of an elderly couple...and confronts his most dangerous opponents yet. 

“Jack Reacher is today’s James Bond, a thriller hero we can’t get enough of.” (Ken Follett) 

“This is a random universe”, Reacher says. “Once in a blue moon things turn out just right.” 

This isn’t one of those times. 

Reacher is on a Greyhound bus, minding his own business, with no particular place to go, and all the time in the world to get there. Then he steps off the bus to help an old man who is obviously just a victim waiting to happen. But you know what they say about good deeds. 

Now Reacher wants to make it right. An elderly couple have made a few well-meaning mistakes, and now they owe big money to some very bad people. One brazen move leads to another, and suddenly Reacher finds himself a wanted man in the middle of a brutal turf war between rival Ukrainian and Albanian gangs. Reacher has to stay one step ahead of the loan sharks, the thugs, and the assassins. 

He teams up with a fed-up waitress who knows a little more than she’s letting on, and sets out to take down the powerful and make the greedy pay. 

It’s a long shot. The odds are against him. But Reacher believes in a certain kind of justice...the kind that comes along once in a blue moon.

Jack Reacher is off the chain

Great story line. Couldn't stop listening. Moments made me cringe and laugh out loud. Narrator's voice was spot on. Captivating

too much uncontrolled vigilantism <br />

Reacher has lost his moral compass and is now portrayed as continuslly disrespectful, uncaring and a out of control vigilante
the story lives on rage primarily

Awesome

Classic Reacher. The best of the last few in my opinion. Simple formula, beat up bad guys and bed hot women. All while being the smartest guy in the room. Love it.

I though narration was really good, after reading reviews I was not expecting much but if your a fan of Reacher, this was nice.

Judge for yourself...

I wrote this review the evening this book was released but Audible chose to hold it for three days. I don’t get it!

I know Lee Child doesn’t need me to run to his defense BUT I’m about 3/4 into this book and saw someone had already really down rated this book because Scott Brick is the narrator! Too bad that Dick Hill retired but people complained about him as well. Scott Brick does a fabulous job narrating and his accents are equally as good.

Fifteen minutes into this book and Reacher already lays a 20 something year old guy out on the sidewalk. The kid was going to rob a seventy something year old man of thousands of dollars. The man is bruised and hurting and yet he still tells Reacher not to call the police. They might want to know why he is carrying thousands in cash, in an envelope in his pocket.

This book starts out as every old Reacher book does. Lee Child came up with a formula with his first Jack Reacher book, The Killing Floor. It seems as long as he sticks with that formula his books come out PERFECT. This book is just that!
Whether you are a fan of Scott Brick’s or not, I don’t think it’s fair to give this book a low ratings based solely on the narrator.

This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.

Action Packed

I am a big fan of Jack Reacher. I have over the years primarily read this series on audiobooks. Dick Hill has narrated all the series until the last book when he retired. To me, Dick Hill was Jack Reacher. I am a fan of Scott Brick, the new narrator of the series, but I am having problems adjusting to Brick as Reacher. Oh well, I will adapt.

In this book Reacher takes on two gangs to help an elderly couple who have borrowed money from the gangs. The book is well written and the plot twists and turns. The story is action packed with lots of violence. The book is easy to read and almost impossible to put down. Lee Child’s is a master storyteller. I can hardly wait for the next Reacher book.

The book is eleven hours and twenty-one minutes. Scott Brick does a good job narrating the book. Brick is a well-known award-winning narrator.

Let's get over the Hill versus Brick issue

Dick Hill retired!!! Yes, he embodied Jack Reacher like no other. But at least they selected my favorite reader in Scott Brick (who will always be Lucas Davenport, Virgil Flowers, Jason Bourne, Jack Ryan, Dirk Pitt, John Corey and a host of other characters). The story is first rate as all of Lee Child's Reacher stories are and Scott's performance is perfect. I will continue to buy Reacher books and listen to the old ones when I want the ole Dick Hill flavor. Nobody can read like Dick, but Scott is a great replacement.

Is this really Lee Child?

This entire story is such a departure from the usual Jack Reacher novels that I’ve read in the past that it raised a question whether this was really Lee Child that wrote it. This Jack Reacher was too violent, too willing to kill, too without a conscience, and too introspective with his pages-long mental calculations of whether he would be successful with his violent actions. I couldn’t finish it and left at chapter 32...kind of boring.

I think Lee Child needs a new puppy.

I hope everything is alright in the life of Lee Child. I've read or listened to every Reacher novel. In this one, he's turned Jack Reacher into a vicious killing machine who seems to only care about getting vengeance for someone else by dispatching as many people as possible. The killings and beatings are quite gruesome, oftentimes ridiculous and just unbelievable.

There is not a lot of detective work done by following clues and collecting evidence. Reacher just lays in bed with a woman he knew for five minutes and magically guesses the right outcome to their current predicament.

We don't get the usual background on the town/city like most every other novel. I honestly don't remember what city this takes place in and I just finished it yesterday. It's definitely not Mother's Rest.

This audiobook was released two days before my birthday and I had it on my wishlist for months. I now wish I could go back in time and unhear most of it.
I don't know if this review will save anyone from the heartache I've experienced over losing one of my favorite series but I sure hope so.

Reacher is Really Batman

I’ve enjoyed the Reacher series over the years and often felt that, unlike other protagonists of this moral tough-guy genre, he was like a superhero, but without superpowers. Batman-esque. In this book, with bodycounts of a magnitude that are more “generous” than most mainline x-box war games, it could have easily been written as a graphic novel, completing the comic book analogy.

When did Reacher get so gabby?

I’m a major Jack Reacher fan. I’ve read or listened to all the books and short stories, most of them multiple times. I won’t be coming back to this one. I do miss Dick Hill, but that’s not it. Mostly I miss the old Reacher, a man of few words. “Reacher said nothing” was a common descriptor. This guy goes on and on to the point of silliness, even dropping cliches. I miss the humor of the earlier books. Don’t remember a laugh in this one. Also, I don’t mind a high body count, or the occasional extra-judicial killing, but far too many here. The old Reacher left most of his opponents crippled, so he wouldn’t have to deal with them again. When he killed someone it was generally for a compelling reason. Plot was just OK. I enjoyed the setup. The story had its moments. Just not enough of them.

Jack 'Wick' Reacher

For long time Reacher fans, this is more of an action themed entry rather than detective/suspense style. With the Eastern European and Ukrainian villains and heavy body count, it is like a melding of Reacher and John Wick. Not Shakespeare, but a fun listen and well performed. "Reacher said nothing". Rather, he just kicked quite a lot of rear ends.

Worst Reacher Yet

Utterly ridiculous plot. I’ve listened to all the Reacher novels and this is the silliest yet. Scott Brick’s sanctimonious narration doesn’t help. This story is so unrealistic and absurd that it requires a level of suspension of disbelief to get through it that is hard to describe. Cartoonish. 40 or 50 people killed, largely in public, and nary a police officer makes an appearance. The stories have been borderline before, but this one is way over the top. And worst of all, Reacher is less noble than he is a blood thirsty psychotic. Too bad.

Reacher is no longer a Robin Hood

I have always thought of Reacher as a good guy who was always in the right place, at the right time to help those in need. This started out that way and then it evolved into Reacher being as bad as the bad guys with no sense of morals at all. This might be my last Reacher novel.. I have lost count on how many people he has killed in this novel with no regrets for any of the kills. He also is so darn smart he can figure everything out which gets really tiresome really quickly. Very, very disappointed in this novel.
