Publisher's Summary

The Navy SEALs trained him.

A secret unit of the NCIS recruited him.

Enemies fear him.

For elite undercover operative Jack Widow, the news that someone shot his mother, a small-town sheriff, will unleash him in number one best-selling author Scott Blade's explosive series starter.

Pulled off an undercover assignment, Widow returns home to a small town in Mississippi - a place he tried to forget.

Taken to be a worthless drifter by the locals, Widow uses his skills to uncover the truth about his mother's last investigation. What was she looking for?

What he discovers is an unsolved mystery of missing girls and townspeople harboring a deadly secret - a secret they'll die to protect.

Good thing that Jack Widow will kill to find out what.

Fans of Lee Child's Jack Reacher, Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan, Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp, and Mark Greaney's The Gray Man series will love the Jack Widow action-thriller-mystery series.

If gripping thrillers loaded with mystery, suspense, action, twists, and turns is your thing, then Jack Widow is for you!

Listen to international best seller Scott Blade's first explosive book in the Jack Widow series today.

Think I'm Gonna Love This Series

This was a great start to this series. Action, intrigue, family, and a dash of romantic interaction. I can't wait to get to the next book. Glad to know this series has been out for a while so the books are there for the reading and listening. Great narrator! I hope he continues with this series.

Who knew?!

I stumbled upon this author and this book by pure accident. To my total surprise and joy, I found Jack Reachers son! It never comes right out and says so, but as Reachers biggest fan...I know! I am so excited to have discovered Scott Blade and the outstanding character; Jack Widow! I’ve already purchased book two in this series! If you are a Reacher fan...you will love Widow!

Promising but needs some fine-tuning

A decent book, but the story and character need some fine-tuning. Overall this book was enjoyable. It just took too long for the action to get started. We didn’t get any action until about four hours into this book. The main character is such a ladies man that women just seem to drop at his feet, it’s a little much. Other than that The story was pretty good. Also, the author is implying without saying that the main character is the illegitimate son of Jack reacher. Other than that, the action was pretty good and the overall story was as well.

Thriller

First off I have to say Alan Phillip Ormond voice is perfect for this brilliant thriller. Very smooth and easy to listen to .


This is the first book in this great series. Jack Widow , is an NCIS agent , who has ben under cover many times. He has to go home , as his mother, who is a sheriff and has now been shoot. Reaching her in time to say goodbye and make peace .

But now wanting to know who shot his mother, who was looking into missing girls...

This book is set at a lovely pace, with characters who you enjoy and feel as if you know.

Does he get his man...... with his training , I think you know the answer. You will enjoy the ride.

Loved this book

Great book Great narration and story line

much in the Reacher tradition- listen for the early hint! I am already looking forward to the next one.
