Publisher's Summary

Late at night in a New York café army-cop-turned-drifter Jack Reacher orders coffee in a cup made of foam, not china, so that he can move on at a moment’s notice.

He owns nothing, carries less, has never encountered a female colleague he can’t bed, or a case he can’t solve.

But now Reacher is confronted by a situation so disturbing and deceptive that the truth eludes him.

Has he painted targets on the good guys’ backs?

So Reacher starts over at square one. He sweats the details and works the clues. As they used to say back in the service, he’s doing it the hard way. Until what started on a busy New York street explodes three thousand miles away in the sleepy English countryside. With Reacher striding alone in the shadows. Armed and dangerous. Invincible.

    "Another classic JR"

    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!

    Story
    "Possibly the best Jack Reacher novel of them all!!"
    Would you listen to The Hard Way again? Why?

    Yes, story is full of great little twists. Kept me guessing.


    What did you like best about this story?

    As above.


    Which character – as performed by Jeff Harding – was your favourite?

    Reacher, of course. The true personification.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The change of location in the last third of the book. Its where I live; great for my involvement as a fly on the wall.


    Any additional comments?

    If you have ever been interested in the Reacher series of novels; this is one of the most engaging. I would recommend Killing Floor to start with, obviously, but this novel can easily be read as a stand alone.

    "Possibly the best one yet"

    Having listened to 90% of the Jack Reacher Novels, I can honestly say this is probably one of the best yet. A great story, lots of twists and turns and a great climax.
    It's filmic and well paced. Well read and and gripping.
    If you like Reacher, you will love this.

    "Gripping and enthralling edge of your seat stuff!"
    Any additional comments?

    I can honestly say that I had my reservations to begin with here. This was my first Jack Reacher adventure, but I can honestly tell you I enjoyed this book so much it certainly won't be the last. Be warned. The narrator has a bit of an issue with swallowing and gulping sounds in between dialogue. It drove me mad for the first few hours and I considered ditching it, but I persisted and it turned out the narrator made up for the weird noises he makes with his talent for narrating and incredibly good character impersonations. Bravo gulping narrator. This story is incredibly entertaining with a gripping storyline that has more twists than a formula one racing track. You won't be wasting a credit here, you'll be investing in 11 hours of pure entertainment.
