Publisher's Summary

A public plaza in Indiana. Five people are killed in cold blood, shot through the head. But he leaves a perfect trail of evidence behind him, and soon the local police chief tracks him down. After his arrest, the shooter's only words are, 'Get Jack Reacher for me.' What could possibly connect this psychopath and the wandering dropout ex-army cop?

Critics call Lee Child's thriller series 'addictive', so here is our annual, much-longed for, Reacher fix.

    "Very well read Reacher book"

    I see that one reviewer does not like the Lee Child/Reacher style of speech or writing. It's a question of taste; I think it underlines Reacher's detached emotional position very well. The plots are economical in that every observation of Reacher's comes in useful for the plot at some stage. Of course, there are many common elements between the books. They are hardly great literature but IMO they work very well. It is astonishing that Lee Child is English.

    I am very fussy about my narrators and think Jeff Harding is very good. All the characters have their own voices, women as well as men. Everything about the delivery suits the story. It's a really professional performance. I think reading audiobooks sorts out the real actors from the rest.

    "Great escapist story telling"

    Lee Child's "Jack Reacher"action thrillers tend to be somewhat formulaic, but never fail to be gripping and entertaining. Fans of the series will not be disappoined with this story. New readers can jump into the series at any point since back story is not too important.
    Jeff Harding is an excellent reader, although his attempts at a Russian accent in parts of this book are a little odd!

    "Reacher, not Cruise"
    Would you listen to One Shot again? Why?

    Jack Reacher 6 feet 5 inches and 220 pounds. Tom Cruise does not fit the bill. An excellent book that had be captivated to the end.

    "Superlative!"


    We learn a little more about what makes Reacher tick.
    He is a truly fascinating character - violent yet tender, ruthless yet considerate and very, very clever.
    I look forward, with relish, to his next adenture.

    "Absolutely brilliant - Classic Reacher"

    This was the first Jack Reacher novel I heard and I have now listened again and it's just as good. The plot is as enthralling as all Lee Childs work. Reacher is only after one thing the truth! even if he cant stand the guy he's helping the truth is more important. You will be kept guessing right to the end but with Lee Child that is never frustrating just enthralling.



    If you are a Jack Reacher fan you will love it. If you haven't heard a Jack Reacher story yet this is a great introduction, you will definitely download another!

    Story
    "Loved it - I don't seem to get sick of Reacher"
    Would you listen to One Shot again? Why?

    Yes - maybe not for a bit though.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of One Shot?

    The stories about the Russian characters in the gulag scared me! Was hoping there wouldn't be too much detail!


    What does Jeff Harding bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    The books are also great to read. What I enjoy the most is the drama JH is able to convey in the reading of the book.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It mostly makes me laugh, hold my breath and then breath a sigh of relief. Bit of a roller coaster the Jack Reacher books in terms of emotions!!

    "Epic! "

    First time audible user(recommended from a work colleague, Cheers Arthur) , first Jack Reacher novel(again recommended via Arthur). Havent even seen the film in which this is based on, and I'm glad! Incredible story, twists and turns. Lee Child brings Reacher to life brilliantly, cannot wait for my next read! The narrator was quality also... Although, the women voices he did got a little degenerative. But all in all. LOVED IT!

    "Watched the film still listen to the book"

    I nearly give this a miss as I had seen the film but after deliberation, I purchased it. So glad I did the book was far more enthralling than the film.

    I love the format with Reacher forming observations in his mind and analysing his moves, it follows the Lee Child / Reacher formula but I personally love it

    The book really hit home that you cannot use Tom Cruise in the films, he does not have the aura of Reacher.

    Story
    "Hero for the times"

    Suspense all the way and a satisfying conclusion. Although a little unbelievable, in that Reacher always wins, it is the path to that victory that ultimately draws in the reader/listener. You want to know how he works things out, why he becomes involved... Reacher is, basically, a very likeable character, a 'goodie'. And Jeff Harding is a great listen.

    Child does it so well. Sneaks in a twist or two, a couple of females and of course some baddies to defeat with his bare hands.
