Summary

A lone gunman unleashes pandemonium when he shoots into a crowd of people in 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 the next, much-longed for, Reacher fix.

Never fails!

Lee Child is a cracking story teller. Jack Reacher never fails to thrill. If you haven't read Jack Reacher yet I'm jealous. I guess I'll have to start again at the beginning.

Awful narration

I can't comment on the story as I couldn't finish the book due to the awful narration. I've listened to all the reacher series so far on audio and really enjoyed them, but this guy made reacher sound totally menacing all the time and it grated

Not the best!

Would you try another book written by Lee Child or narrated by Kerry Shale?

Lee Child is a good author and I do read other Jack Reacher novels.
The narrator for this book was awful, I only just managed not to return it to audible. It detracted from the story... thank goodness it was only a short one!!

If you’ve listened to books by Lee Child before, how does this one compare?

This isn't his best work

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Kerry Shale?

any other narrator who has read the Reacher series...

Was One Shot worth the listening time?

only just!

Any additional comments?

Book 10 was brilliant
