Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Persuader by Lee Child, read by Jeff Harding.

Never forgive, never forget. That's Jack Reacher's operating principle. And Quinn was one of the worst guys he ever had the misfortune to meet. He had done unforgivable things. So Reacher was glad to know Quinn was dead. Until the day he saw someone who looked an awful lot like him, alive and well, riding in a limousine outside Boston's Symphony Hall.

Never apologise. Never explain. When Reacher witnesses a brutal attempt to kidnap a terrified young student on a New England campus, he takes the law into his own hands. That's his way, after all. Only this time, it leads to a fatal shooting. Has Reacher - shockingly - lost his sense of right and wrong? Just because this time, it's personal?

Great Story, odd reading.

The story was great, the actual reading was like listening to someone reading 16hours worth of bullet points! very different reading to the other Jeff Harding performances! very odd.

Great story bad Narrating

great story but the Narrating was as bad as I've ever heard. very wooden ad almost ruined the book. I'd struggle to recommend this book because of this alone!

Don't listen to this if you're a bit squeamish

Narrated in his usual inimitable style Jeff Harding has taken over from R C Bray as my favourite narrator. Here Reacher shows no mercy and the kill toll keeps rising. Another great read and on to the next one . I'm hooked.

Exhausting!

A twisty, turny, exhausting story - really gripping and a few surprises thrown in there.

A great and a very addictive story

I have read or listened to all the Jack Reacher stories and I put this book all the way at the top. Very tense and a good build up to the final climax. A good story all in all. I especially liked the switch between the story ten years back and present.

One thing though, which in a small way was annoying, was the constantly repeating sentence “I said nothing”. I didn’t count but it must be in the 100. That being mentioned I highly recommend this book. It’s great novel and very good narration! Thanks

narrator's reading cadence ruins whole book

after less than a minute I felt like giving up on the book... the reading sounds as if he's reading a shopping list, ending all sentences as if they're not part of a story. seriously annoying. and sadly I have more books narrated by this person.
