Finally I was able to listen to the unabridged version, because you don't want to miss any details in the story. This one is a classic story about how some bad people manage to terrorize an entire town. Of course that's the kind of thing that Reacher despises. What he thinks of as a case of wife beating becomes far more sinister as the story progresses. And, of course, Reacher manges to rise to the occasion, despite his injuries from his previous adventure.

I like the Reacher books because everything is logical. I learnt at school that fiction, or possibly drama, needs the "willing suspension of disbelief". Once you accept the premises that Jack Reacher starts from, the stories become believeable. His ability to predict the behaviour of other people is only surprising because he is so male - most men do not see these patterns as women do. He is attractive to women readers because he likes women and treats them as equals. His lack of commitment prevents too much sentimentality creeping in.
I like Jeff Harding's readings. Harding observes the rhythms of the prose and gets all the voices different. It's a very professional performance.

Another classic Reacher story. Simple and descriptive language makes it easy to listen to and visualise. A great narration as well.

Worth the listen. Reacher at again, doing what is right and fighting for the underdog.
