Jack Reacher, alone, strolling nowhere. A Chicago street in bright sunshine. A young woman, struggling on crutches. He offers her a steadying arm. And turns to see a handgun aimed at his stomach. Chained in a dark van racing across America, Reacher doesn't know why they've been kidnapped. The woman claims to be FBI. She's certainly tough enough. But at their remote destination, will raw courage be enough to overcome the hopeless odds?

I have heard lots of the Jack Reacher series this set in one of the early years was one of the best. Retaining interest whilst on the gradual, not overly sensational, build up. Dispel some belief and enjoy😜

Amusing but not as funny as he is on Mock the Week. He is probably a better straight man as a foil to other comedians.

Worth a listen to if you have a credit to use up.

Having watched the first film I bought this book for a long journey. A little suspicious as it is written in the first person whi h I do not normally enjoy. However it is simply amazing; so engaging and full of drama. Really well written it conjures a very vivid picture and holds much more than the film ever could. I will be downloading the other books as soon as I can.

The book is an interesting listen, we'll read with good content. The examples become a bit laborious and the book could be shorter without loosing much of its value. It is a good introduction to negotiation and I have noticed many of the examples used by sales persons and been able to act appropriately since getting the book.
