Ever wondered what early experiences shaped Reacher's explosive career as butt-kicker supreme, the one-man guided-missile battler for justice? In this original new short story, Lee Child looks back on an incident in his hero Jack Reacher's teenage years as the younger son of a tough career US Marine, on a faraway military base in the Pacific.

'The coolest continuing series character now on offer.' (Stephen King)
Second Son provides an interesting introduction to the childhood that led to the Reacher we all know. Fans will enjoy this short story, those not familiar with Reacher should read a couple of books first to get some context. A worthy short listen.

yes, its good to get insight into Reacher as a youngster
Yes, am just about through the entire Reacher collection. Very addictive
"What a rip-off"
I am one of Lee Child's greatest fans but this so-called 'book', that wasn't much more than one hour long was a great disappointment. Could Lee Child be losing it - or just cashing in on is fame and success?
Interesting backgrounder to at least some of the influences that supposedly caused Reacher to be the kind of person he is. Ridiculously short for one credit though.
"A good short read."
I would recommend this to Jack reacher fans because it tells us about him as a young boy. It helps the reader to understand his character development.
It was a nice satisfying ending.
I don't mind his reading but I prefer Jeff Harding.
No, I was happy to listen to aboutm half an hour at a time.
"Good Short Story"
I enjoyed this short story about Jack Reacher at the age of 13. It is credible and enetertaining.
Before you buy this book, however, check out whether it is bundled with "The Affair", because it seems to be for US buyers.
"Born to be Reacher"
I really enjoyed this short story of Jack Reacher at 13. It sets out how he came to be who he is today. Even at 13, he's smart, tough, logical and never misses a trick. Saves the day for his dad & brother. Kerry Shale's narration is great very masculine, just like you imagine Reacher to be.
