Would you listen to Jack Reacher: One Shot again? Why?
Yes, This book was a good, well written detective novel with the unparalleled Jack Reacher as a distinct and singular good guy with a real mean streak.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
I couldn't put it down, I was at a birthday party for my son's friend and just kept listening to the book. It was a bit anti- social but I wanted to finish.
What does Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Dick brought the characters to life for me. He gave them depth and breadth.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
no. It was just enjoyable. I love a book that makes me want to come back to it.

A man arrested for a mass killing has only one thing to say to his own lawyer; find Jack Reacher. Since Reacher does an excellent job of staying off the grid it's not gonna be an easy task. Unless of course Reacher decides to come to them; with a message his lawyer and his sister don't want to hear. The suspect; having been assaulted inside the lockup where he was being held, is in a coma and unable to provide any explanations.
The mistakes in form here are legion. The book has the prisoner being held in prison rather than in the local jail. Child also has him being exposed to the general prison population; something not done with a suspect in a high profile criminal case for that very reason.
Then with the case dead and the suspect in a coma someone makes a mistake; they go after Jack Reacher. Those of us who are loyal fans of Reacher know this isn't just a mistake; it's a huge mistake. Along the way Reacher does what he always does, he kicks, uh, butt and takes names; he has sex with a woman once and she goes on her way, and finally; he unravels a case that one else can.
With that one exception mentioned earlier this story avoids some of the major holes in logic and fact that are commonplace in some selections in the series. Some of the villains are more than a little over the top here but they play well in the story. If you're a Reacher fan this one is a must.
