Jack Reacher has no place to go and all the time in the world to get there, so a remote railroad stop with the curious name of Mother's Rest seems perfect for an aimless one-day stopover. He expects to find a lonely tombstone in a sea of nearly ripe wheat...but instead there is a woman waiting for a missing private investigator, a cryptic note about 200 deaths, and a small town full of silent, watchful people.
Reacher's one-day stopover turns into an open-ended stay....
Fasten your seatbelt for another nail-biting ride from the kick-ass master of the thriller genre!

I love the Jack Reacher books and if you are a fan, you will love this one too.
If this is your first, then enjoy a great book and the start of a wonderful journey.
I would give it a story. The first half was really bad. Nothing happens.
Yes , other book of his are better and there is no reason to assume future books wont be as good.
Not sure as the story wasn't great it's hard to tell how good the narrator is.
Spend my time cycling, reading, listening to audiobooks and music, baking and running about after 3 grown up kids, cats and chickens.
I've had to return a few books recently because the story was poor or the narrator wasn't good so It's a relief to find a book where everything comes together to create the perfect experience. It's a gripping story that builds at a cracking pace to a very exciting conclusion. Jeff Harding IS Jack Reacher for me.
A man with a child in his ears
You've gotta love Jack Reacher! I thought I was going off him after the previous installment (Personal) which just seemed to lack something. But this is a genuine return to form. Reacher once again walks into a situation and Child reveals everything gradually building the suspense with his usual aplomb.
Jeff Harding voices this superbly, he is much more suited to the accents in this book than he was with Personal and in this context I think I could spend an hour listening to him reading just about anything! fantastic voice.
So, if you liked Reacher before you will like him again. To anyone who hasn't read Reacher before, the novels can be taken in any order if you want to.
I'm not sure any fan of Lee Child would enjoy this book
It feels like it wasn't written by Lee Child
The narrator was the best bit about this book
The whole book needs rewriting
I am disappointed that the last 2 Jack Reacher books feel like they have been written by a ghost writer and not Lee Child himself.He should be embarrassed.
I do not feel the author has come up to his usual standard and since seeing the film "Never go back" with Cruise as Reacher I now find it difficult to visualise a 6ft 5in 250lb blond crew cut ex soldier sorry but both the author and his character seem to have lost it.
Either Reacher or Lee Child are showing their age - the story was very long-winded, with less action than usual- if Reacher's head is getting soft, is it time to finish him off?
Having read and enjoyed all the Jack Reacher books this was by far the most boring with endless pages of small irrelevant detail.
It smacks of a forced effort
this narrator suits Jack none Reacher stories perfectly. the mystery that always exists at the middle of Reacher adventures was very well hidden then slowly and horrifyingly revealed. listened in only two days gripping as always. the horrific aspects were not too graphic for those somewhat squeemish listeners
"Best Yet - a must"
Fantastic plot, great character development. Jack Reacher is developing emotionally. Jeff Harding was born to be the voice of Jack Reacher. The narration is superb as always. I highly recommend this book.
