Summary

Two small towns in Colorado: Hope and Despair. Between them, nothing but 12 miles of empty road. Jack Reacher can't find a ride, so he walks. All he wants is a cup of coffee. What he gets are four redneck deputies who want to run him out of town.

Mistake. They're picking on the wrong guy. Jack Reacher is a big man, and he's in shape. No job, no address, no baggage. Nothing except bloody-minded curiosity. What is the secret the locals seem so keen to hide?

A hard man is good to find. Ex-military cop Reacher is today's most addictive hero. Now he pulls on a tiny loose thread, to unravel conspiracies that exposed the most shocking truths. Because, after all, Jack Reacher has Nothing to Lose.

Pleasant surprise

When I started listening to this I thought 'oh no' (and apologies to all Clint Eastwood fans) this sounds exactly like him in Dirty Harry but after awhile I got used to it and found the book gripping. I really really enjoyed it even though one or two parts of it were a bit far fetched (didn't think one man would really be standing after being attacked by six men - but then John McLean managed it in Die Hard I and II and III :-) so maybe I am being too hard).

All in all great book, great story, great reading, one part I found a bit disturbing because I could really see how some nutcase could be thinking upon those lines. I don't think the author is a great fan of G Bush and I think hidden was a bit of a political message but all in all great - enjoy.

Worst Lee Child Book from Jack Reacher Series

I'm a Lee Child fan, but this book lacked anything new. If you're a fan you'll spot the similar story pieces from his other books. This was a real let down and I wouldn't recommend it! Sorry :(

Dark and totally enthralling

If you like Lee child and enjoy the Jack reacher books this one is a must!

Everything you have come to expect and enjoy about this character is brought to life. Well written as always and a perfect reading make this one of the best audio books I have heard for a long time.
