I admit I am biased and am an admirer of Jeff Harding as a narrator; this is my fourth Jack Reacher novel and I loved loved loved it. I was subconsciously expecting many things as the story unfolded however Lee Child managed to put enough subtle twists and turns that created expectations that still turned out to be wrong (on my part!) Jeff Harding did an outstanding job with accents & voice inflections and female voices. I highly recommend this to any Lee Child fan as I couldn't put this down - I listened on the treadmill, in the car (stuck the Wiggles on so the children wouldn't talk to me) - even did my accounts with it on. Brilliant.

Love Lee Childs! The twists are fabulous, the action was excellent and the story moved along in a way which was gripping, detailed with terror edged scenes which I can still visualize! !
I came across this series a while ago and have spent a fortune buying all the unabridged titles. This one is a good as the rest and although I guessed the central premise early on, that didn't make it less enjoyable.
The Reacher books are basically adventure mysteries with ex American military policeman, Jack Reacher, at their core. He is big and hard and very violent but always with right on his side. Jeff Harding as narrator is by far the best.
Well worth a listen.

Having read a review saying this book is predictable and 'clunking' I have to say it is just that and that is its charm. You know you're going to get Reacher at his uncompromising unforgiving best. Jeff Harding's delivery has been compared with John Wayne without his charm now exchange that for Bogart's Sam Spade's drawl, menacing no nonsense voice over and you have a triumph of character formation over anything as trite as the rambling 'Duke'. The Hard Way is where Reacher mingles with other special forces personale but second leaguer and those with fists but no brains. It's a good yarn and one with twists in unexpected directions.

It's a slow burner. It creeps up on you, like a good thriller. Jack does all the hard yards, investigating as only he knows how, then bam! He switches from sleuth to judge, jury and executioner!

Another great book in the Reacher series. The narrators voice makes it easy to listen.
