Suicide bombers are easy to spot. They give out all kinds of tell-tale signs, mostly because they're nervous. By definition they're all first-timers. Riding the subway in New York at 2:00 in the morning, Reacher knows the 12 giveaway signs to look out for. Watching one of his fellow passengers, he becomes sharply aware: one by one, she ticks off every bulletpoint on his list.
So begins the heartstopping new thriller starring today's most admired action hero, the gallant and enigmatic loner Jack Reacher.

Brilliant, not listened to anything by Lee Child before, just had him recommended.
Style of narration very Chandleresque as it moves along with brief but punchy sentences - I certainly was left with some grim pictures in my head.
Story line very good and kept me engaged only loosing it on a very sunny afternoon in the garden when I drifted off in the sunshine...had to rewind to where I last remembered.
Have already downloaded another Lee Child story.
ps hope the rest have recording quality as good as this one as in the car, no hiss was apparent.
I am a Jack Reacher fan and clearly spend much of my subconscious energy being him. It works to a formula, it's a Lee Child, Jack Reacher story we expect and demand nothing less.
I read the other review and just thought, If you don't like mice don't go to Disney. I for one wasn't disappointed. Great story and, dispite the enevitable, you are on the edge all the way through.
Keep the crazy hollywood casting out of your head Jack Reacher is here to save us all, and he's good at it.
No more Jack reacher stories like this please worsed I ever listened to he just repeated himself over & over & over for no aparent reason seems like the auther did not know what to write you could have read this one in a 100 pages plus ending was left to the reader to make up his own conclusion thumbs down.
