Summary

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

Sergeant Amy Callan and Lieutenant Caroline Cooke have a lot in common.

Both were army highflyers. Both were acquainted with Jack Reacher. Both were forced to resign from the service.

Now they're both dead.

Found in their own homes, naked, in a bath full of paint.

Apparent victims of an army man. A loner, a smart guy with a score to settle, a ruthless vigilante.

A man just like Jack Reacher.

Interesting story with twists. Great narration.

Really enjoyed the plot, and the narrator was much better than that used in a previous version which I returned. Most memorable moment "......eyes went wide in sudden panic and then she died". Lots of good lines, characters clearly defined in the voices. This is really helpful.

Author Breaks Trust with His Readers

Any additional comments?

Any reader of a "who done it" expects plot twists. In fact they are crucial to an entertaining read. Lee Child abandons believability in this book. He provide's clues to the murder's identity that are totally bogus. I refer to the scene where the killer is described crossing a name off of a list and is interrupted by an army corporal. Bull shit to the whole story.

Gripping and fast moving.

An enjoyable book to listen to. The narrator is very good. I guessed the method quite early on but it wasn’t until the last chapter until the killer became known. Excellent stuff, easy on the ears, captivating to the imagination.

Very Good but not not as good as his others

Narrator good, performance good, Just not quite as good a story as some of the other. But good enough to get on with his next book.

Entertaining...

An excellent narration by Jeff Harding, as ever. Not much of a mystery as any avid Agatha Christie student will know who the perpetrator is by Chapter Five but good entertainment none the less.

very enjoyable :)

Another book that I have thoroughly enjoyed. I think that if you read a lot of criminals then all the plots are quite similar. i do enjoy the characters and the story itself. just off to get the next one :)

Superb

Another winning storyline, with many twists and turns, excellently narrated by Jeff Harding who always brings the story to life, a winning combination again.

Pity about the narrator ...

Although I am loving the Jack Reacher series, this book was a chore to listen to. If it wasn't that the story was so good, I would have given up after the first half hour. The narrator is one of the worst I have listened to, not finishing his sentences and applying the same sing song cadence to all the sentences he reads.
