Publisher's Summary

Summoned by Military Intelligence to Washington, D.C., Reacher is sent undercover. The assignment that awaits him: The army is meeting with its Capitol Hill paymasters for classified talks on a new, state-of-the-art sniper rifle for U.S. forces. But vital details about the weapon are leaking - straight from the Capitol and probably into the hands of unidentified foreign arms dealers. The prospect of any and every terrorist, mercenary, or dictator’s militia getting their hands on the latest superior firepower is unthinkable. That’s where Reacher comes in. His task: infiltrate the top-secret proceedings and smoke out the mole. His target: a quartet of high-powered Army political liaison officers - all of them fast-track women on their way to the top.
According to his bosses, it’s a zero-danger mission. No need to draw a gun...just chat over drinks. But Reacher knows that things are rarely what they seem. And he’s learned the hard way never to underestimate an opponent. Or four. Lessons that will come in handy when he starts digging for the truth - and gets his hands a lot dirtier than he expected.

Like the inside of a cinnamon roll

Sometimes just a little bit is what you are in the mood for. You know, when you don't want the whole cinnamon roll, you just want the best part, the soft gooey center. That's how this Reacher short story is, it's the best of Reacher just bite size.

This short story is great, really great. It is Reacher in all his glory, great action, great attitude, and as usual, he's smarter than everyone around him. He's the great reluctant hero.

Thank you Dick Hill, your narration was perfect as always.

Make sure you don't use a credit for this since the price is only around $2.

I first read the Kindle version of Deep Down...

three years ago. I own Audible versions of all 20 Jack Reacher novels as well as copies of all of the novellas.short stories. Lee Child's Jack Reacher books are immensely entertaining and I look forward to their releases. I pre-order them as soon as they are available on Audible. Deep Down is a superb Reacher short story.

Yesterday I listened to the newest novel in the series. Make Me, and wrote a critical review giving the story 3 stars. After rating the first 18 Reacher novels 5 stars, I rated #19, Personal, 4 stars. I had hoped that Make Me would be a better book that Personal and I am disappointed that Make Me is not as good. I'm not accustomed to Lee Child writing so-so, average novels. I look forward to Jack Reacher #21 next year and hope Child is able to return to his accustomed entertaining style.
