Publisher's Summary

An original short story about Jack Reacher, available exclusively in digital format (ebook and audio), following the success of last year's "Second Son".
Early in his military career, Jack Reacher is ordered undercover in Washington, to discover which one of four women, all staff officers on fast track careers, is leaking secrets. The suggested method: get close to each in turn. The obvious problem: the most receptive will be the guilty one, with an agenda of her own - to kill the investigation ... and the investigator.

I Wish Was A Full Novel!

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would recommend it if they liked a short story, however, I felt ripped off as I became engaged with the book and the story and the excellent narration,but then the book finished before I knew it! Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Would you be willing to try another book from Lee Child? Why or why not?

I would read another book by Lee Child and have, but not another short story, because the novel gives you a chance to enter into the bigger story, while the short story gets you in and pulls the rug from under you.

Have you listened to any of Kerry Shale’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes. An outstanding narrator and well worth listening to future stories narrated by this narrator.

Did Deep Down inspire you to do anything?

Find a full novel by Lee Child.

Any additional comments?

Lee Child in conjunction with Kerry Shale will taunt you by getting you into the short story. They get you excited and engaged in the story and then bring you crashing down as you realise the story has ended and you need to find another novel or audiobook! Hopefully it was as good as this story before the rug was ripped from under me!

Not the usual Reacher Voice…

…but still the usual Reacher style. Amazing story telling, Lee Child can seemingly do no wrong!

I would have loved this to have been a full blown novel, but as a novella, it had the right pace & intrigue, and ultimately an enjoyable ending! (I do miss the 'old' Reacher though.

Enjoy!

Subtle......

The thing I like about this book is it’s predictable... You know Reacher isn’t going to lose. He might have a bump n a scrape on the way but, so what 6 foot something weighing 200 and something pounds moving steadily and swiftly... The other guys might as well just search for their pension books 👍
