Child at His Best! A Must Read for Reacher Fans!

I have listened to many of Lee Child's books with Jack Reacher, but I have to say this was my favorite to date. The story was seamless, very well thought out, and very well written. All of the characters were believable and Child gave us some of his best ones yet. Dick Hill is a fantastic narrator, and did his usual great job. All-in-all a very exciting, "sit-on-the-edge of your seat" story, but with provocative human elements. I believe that Child is improving as an author, and it is noticeable in this book. This was my first read where Reacher is acting in an undercover capacity while working with another agency (not sure if he has any other stories where he does this.) He must infiltrate a very dangerous smuggling ring in an effort to fulfill two objectives: recover a kidnapped federal agent, and take care of some unfinished business of his own from an arrest-gone-wrong in his old days as an MP. Child brilliantly weaves this past story into the present one, and this makes for an even more compelling story. In this book we are given more insight to Reacher, the man, than any of his books I have read so far. As with most of Child's Jack Reacher stories, one doesn't have to have read any previous books to enjoy this one, so even if this would be your first Reacher novel, go for it! I highly recommend this listen!

Reacher is still the Man of Steel

After listening to "Persuader" I am persuaded that author Lee Child made a point of creating antagonists for Reacher that would test his mettle. At times you wondered if Reacher would prevail against some pretty steep odds. But if you're a fan of Reacher, you could guess where things would lead. I think Child was very effective in telling parallel stories that were tied together during the last two-three hours of the listen. I was disappointed that there were some loose ends left untied at the end, but nothing major. And the narration, as usual, was excellent. Bottom line - if you like the Reacher series (and I do), you like this listen (I did).
