- Jack Reacher, Book 24
- By: Lee Child
- Narrated by: Jeff Harding
- Length: 11 hrs and 13 mins
In a nameless city, two ruthless rival criminal gangs, one Albanian, the other Ukrainian, are competing for control. But they hadn’t counted on Jack Reacher arriving on their patch. Reacher is trained to notice things. He’s on a Greyhound bus, watching an elderly man sleeping in his seat, with a fat envelope of cash hanging out of his pocket. Another passenger is watching too...obviously hoping to get rich quick. As the mugger makes his move, Reacher steps in....
Absolutely CLASSIC Reacher!

Best Reacher in ages
Have really enjoyed every Reacher audio book from Killing Floor onwards. This however is absolutely brilliant. Finished it in under 3 days (couple of long car journeys in that...). Just great action, fun, pacing and story with characters you root for. Doesn't pad with too much intimate scenes as he's done in the past. Look forward to hearing this again.

The stories coming in from around the globe have often seemed fantastical: clandestine meetings in foreign capitals, secret recordings in a Moscow hotel, Kremlin agents infiltrating the Trump inner circle....
Probably better in print than as an audiobook

Absolute tour de force - compelling
Superb work. I was relatively convinced of the Trump Russia collusion conspiracy until I read Seth's book. Now I am 100% certain that there was venal collusion and conspiracy, as well as countless frauds and obstructions of justice.
Painstakingly researched and curated, but then brought to life with compelling yet restrained prose.
