Summary

NEW YORK

It may be Christmas in New York, but for ex-soldier turned élite bodyguard Ryan Lock it's business as usual: his mission is to protect one of America's most ruthless businessmen.

A BLOODY SHOOT-OUT

Suddenly gunshots ring out. People run for cover. Innocent people are mown down. Amid the chaos, Lock's hunt for the killers turns into an explosive game of cat and mouse.

A DEADLY SECRET

Lock's search for the truth takes him from the rooftops of a New York skyscraper to a heavily fortified warehouse on the Hudson where he confronts one of the world's most dangerous women. As the clock ticks towards midnight on New Year's Eve, all routes into and out of Manhattan are sealed, and Lock realises that not only is his own life in terrible danger but so are the lives of millions of others....

Jack Reacher by any other name

if you changed the main characters name to Jack Reacher I wouldn't have known any different. Good story, plenty of plot twists. Will search out more.

A alternative to Reacher, just not quite there.

Easy listening too. A little predictable but perfect for driving when you don't always listen 100%. If your looking for an alternative to Reacher then this is good. Same narrator which is nice.

great story

This was well written and kept you guessing all the way through. You'll think you have it sussed when the plot turns another corner. Really good.

LOCKDOWN

Jeff Harding did his Jack Reacher best, but the good guys were all very good , the bad guys were all very bad and the authorities were bumbling fools content to be ordered round in a crisis by Lock , a civilian. Not for me.

Aargh! The old Times Square cliché scene yet again

Mediocre stuff saved by Jeff Harding's narration. Doubt if I'll be getting another in is series.
