So begins the new heart-stopping new thriller starring today's most admired action hero, the gallant and enigmatic loner Jack Reacher.

Too much is lost with writers such as Lee Childs when the book is abridged. Like another reviewer, I will be buying the paperback.
This is the second Lee Child book only available abridged & I won't be buying it. Books of this nature which are heavy on description loose too much when cut down & spoil the story. I'll be buying the paperback! Audible should pull its finger out and get them unabridged.
I am self confessed Jack Reacher/Lee Childs fan. If you see those two names you are certain it will be a fantastic fast and action packed book. Probaly the best in this Genre
Another got to get to the next pager by Child.
Something missing though, somehow the narrator's voice didn't fit for me and i found it almost irritating.
Not a classic but good enough.
A good story with Jack Reacher at his best. I would have preferred an unabridged version, but I thoroughly enjoyed it!
Having seen the film "Jack Reacher" on a long haul flight, I thought I would give the audiobook a try, and I was not disappointed. The story is well read, and the story keeps the listener gripped. I have to say though that it probably helps if the listerner knows New York well, which I do not. I did enjoy the story though.
First Lee Child book read/listened to. Loved the voice of the actor playing Jack Reacher - a real husky voice that was perfect for the part. I will certainly buy another Lee Child book.
"another great from lee child"
another great book from lee child, those familier with child's Jack Reacher will love this, new readers will soon love this tough guy. read by kerry shale who is the best for this chariture. would prefer a less abridged version. hope audible re-do all childs books with kerry shale
Good, fast paced thriller. Well read, with a narrator who managed to make the different characters totally discernible. Unfortunately took the abridged version, which made the story slightly difficult to follow. Recommend the unabridged version instead!
