Reviews

I love him. It's said that a Jack Reacher novel is bought every four seconds somewhere in the world. He is to crime fiction what Clint Eastwood's 'man with no name' was to the western. Lee Child's genius in 17 novels has been to create a tough guy hero that men will envy and women will adore. * Daily Express *
Pure escapism...He has redefined the thriller for the 21st century...Reacher is a knight errant every bit as much as Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe was. ...stunningly good. -- Henry Sutton * Daily Mirror *
I am no longer (if I ever was) an unbiased critic. I am more of a Lee Child fan. I am pro-Reacher, his massive but benevolent brute of a drifter, vigilante hero....I'll definitely barrel through the next one too. -- Andy Martin * Independent *
Smart, breathless...more ingenious than other Reacher books have been about the underground activities Reacher is thwarting. -- Janet Maslin * New York Times *
A fascinating, swaggeringly confident performance * Sunday Times *

In Child's latest Reacher novel, his ex-army hero is hitchhiking to Virginia, battered but unbowed, when he's picked up by a car carrying three men and a woman. Much of the book takes place in that car, with the always-suspicious Reacher doing a lot of sleuthing into the backgrounds of his mysterious fellow passengers. His suspicions are, of course, well founded. The four are connected to at least one murder. Before too long, Reacher has switched vehicles, now driving with a beautiful FBI agent and following his former companions into the heart of a seemingly inscrutable conspiracy. Some listeners may find the road trip a little meandering and the arbitrary death of a likeable character off-putting, but none should have any complaints about narrator Dick Hill's vigorous, sardonic performance in this audio edition. His reading is perfectly tuned to Child's hardboiled prose, and the narrator maintains an energy level that's high enough to carry the listener past some of the book's slower passages. Of special note is Hill's ability to pick just the right word to linger on, nicely capturing Reacher's attitude, be it one of distrust, sarcasm, anger, or, in rare instances, warmth.
