Where is Dick Hill?

I've just started this book, and having read every other Jack Reacher novel by Lee Child, I have no doubt I'm going to like the story, but...
This narrator is milk toast, when I really wanted a hot, buttery, cinnamon bun.
This narrator is weak tea, when I really wanted hot, black, coffee.
This narrator is near beer, when I really wanted a stiff shot of bourbon.
This narrator is Jonathan McClain, when I really wanted Dick Hill.
For me, Dick Hill is Jack Reacher. I'm sure McClain is a nice guy, and he reads well enough, but he is not Dick Hill, and for me, that means he is not Jack Reacher. I'm not through the first chapter, but I really miss Dick Hill.

I feel like I was robbed

This Book was dressed up as a newly released Lee Child: Reacher Novel.
The narrator butchered this book. I feel like a fool for the fact I had bought it a year ago. It was presented in a manner that allowed me to not check my Reacher series.
I am ultimately at fault, this I can admit.
My ears still burn with the noises that Mr. Jonathan McClain made of the voices throughout the entire novel. I am certain he could perform well in a different genre, because of the redeeming quality I heard in the freeform pure narration parts but not the actual characters voices. This books intensity was displaced due to the characters being delivered in a cartoon like fashion.
I have never written a bad review because the books I have not liked are books that are not in my taste. Yet this time I am actually disturbed, and feel if someone had listened to this book with it’s Narration it may ruin the fantastic talent, and action Lee Child brings to life in the Reacher Series.
