Publisher's Summary

Jack Reacher visits a town without pity in the first novel in Lee Child's New York Times best-selling series.
Ex-military policeman Jack Reacher is a drifter. He's just passing through Margrave, Georgia, and in less than an hour, he's arrested for murder. Not much of a welcome. All Reacher knows is that he didn't kill anybody. At least not here. Not lately. But he doesn't stand a chance of convincing anyone. Not in Margrave, Georgia. Not a chance in hell.

Even if you have it GET THIS ONE!!

What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

Dick Hill is Jack Reacher. This is my favorite series and I only wish the three on Audible that are narrated by someone else (Tripwire, Die Trying and Running Blind) would be rereleased with Dick Hill narrating.

Any additional comments?

I already have the first release of this book and was on the fence about getting this one but so very glad I did. Over two hours longer then the first but the narration is so much better. Both done by Dick Hill and both good but he changed some accents and speech patterns (Findley now sounds like he's from Boston) and left some other annoying dialog out and this version surpasses the last. My review is really for people who already own the first release of this book. For anyone who hasn't read:listened to this book all I can say is GET IT, you won't be sorry. This is one of my favorite Reacher books. Great story that sets the tone for all the books that follow. If you find this review helpful please indicate so. Thank You.

I never knew these were so good!

Nearly 20 years and this is my first time reading a Jack Reacher book. Boy, oh boy, what I have been missing!

This is a complicated story with twists and turns that aren't forced or improbable. We find out Reacher's back story and personality and skills. The writing is mature and professional, not insipid or riddled with one type of error or another. Reacher is a good person, not a warped killer or vengeful vigilante. He doesn't want trouble, but it always finds him.

Dick Hill is not my favorite narrator--he sounds like he's at least 80 with a shaky voice, and he wheezes out every last wisp of breath. But he does do some voices very well, and he provides great intonation and characterization. His best accents are Hispanic (Harv, Nathan McBride's sidekick), but he is better than just endurable.

If you like this kind of do-gooder story, then get started on this series, and don't wait 20 years to find it like I did!
