Publisher's Summary

March 1997. A woman has her throat cut behind a bar in Carter Crossing, Mississippi. Just down the road is a big army base.Is the murderer a local guy - or is he a soldier?Jack Reacher, still a major in the military police, is sent in undercover.
The county sheriff is a former U.S. Marine - and a stunningly beautiful woman. Her investigation is going nowhere. Is the Pentagon stonewalling her? Or doesn't she really want to find the killer?
The adrenaline-pumping, high-voltage action in The Affair is set just six months before the opening of Killing Floor, and it marks a turning point in Reacher's career. If he does what the army wants, will he be able to live with himself? And if he doesn't, will the army be able to live with him? Is this his last case in uniform?

Very annoyed.

The audio book was great. However, I bitterly resent being forced to write a review in order to access the rest of my library. If I don't want to write a review, that should be my own business. I have paid a lot for these books, and I expect access on my iPad whenever I want. However, I find that the review pop up allows no access to my books unless I review. Stop it, or its one star reviews from me!

My 14th Jack Reacher novel & I rate it in my Top 5

What made the experience of listening to The Affair the most enjoyable?

It was nice to go back in time to Reacher's final days in the Army and the story being told in the 1st person was interesting.The opening is a little bit too descriptive for my liking but the pace picks up quickly and ~12 hoursof listening passed in a flash. The last 90 minutes had me absolutely hooked. I also really enjoy Jeff Harding as narrator ... my favourite by far.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Because this particular book is told in the first person there can really only be one favourite character .. .Reacher himself. Otherwise, I always love it when Neagley pops up in the story line and her bit part in this novel doesn't disappoint.

What does Jeff Harding bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Jeff Harding knows when and how to pause. He is articulate and I like that his volume is pretty much normalised throughout ... no whispering or yelling. He easily communicates a faster pace when necessary and I love that I can't really hear him breathing. His voice reminds me very much of Jack Nicholson but with absolute clarity.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

My tag line for a movie of this book would be "Apple from the tree" as in "The apple does not fall far from the tree" or to quote Friedrich Nietzscheas "What was silent in the father speaks in the son, and often I found in the son the unveiled secret of the father."

Any additional comments?

Great book. Great listen.
