Publisher's Summary

Thriller master Lee Child presents an exclusive ebook novella about the teenage Reacher.

July 1977. Jack Reacher is almost 17, and he stops in New York on his way from South Korea to visit his brother at West Point. The summer heat is suffocating, fires are raging in the Bronx, the city is bankrupt, and the mad gunman known as Son of Sam is still on the loose.

Reacher meets a woman with a problem, and agrees to help her... and then the power grid fails and the lights go out, plunging the lawless city that never sleeps into chaos. What does a visiting teenager do in the dark? If that visiting teenager is Jack Reacher, the answer is: plenty.

    "Ok early Reacher but very short"

    Beware, if you don't feel good about buying less than half a book at full price then don't buy this one. I'm a little disappointed with what I received for my monthly credit...

    "Edge of you seat entertainment"
    What made the experience of listening to High Heat the most enjoyable?

    It was a story that had you gripped from page one.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The local characters who all were involved in some kind of subtafuge.


    Have you listened to any of Kerry Shale’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No this was the first time and would listen to more performances.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Stay on the train!

    "Young Reacher"

    Story wasn't up to the usual standard, even considering the length, but the narrator was a believable young Reacher

    "action packed start to finish"

    young reacher, new York gangsters, the son of Sam , a love interest not tedious unnecessary & transparent such as with most of the books in the series & an unexpected twist to finish ... all in a 2hr short! good work
