Publisher's Summary

Late at night in a New York cafe, 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, and invincible.

Alone in the Dark, Armed and Dangerous!

I loved this book from cover to cover so to speak - especially the final chapter - my first Jack Reacher book and I'm hooked. I've downloaded lots of others now but this one was the best narration and story so far but all were enjoyable.

It's difficult to work out if Jack is a good guy or a bad guy, but you can be sure you don't want to be on the wrong side of him. He is as ruthless as any bad guys and he definately never plays by any normal rules that you would expect for our books hero.

Another winner by Lee Child

Jack Reacher can always find someone with major problems. With the courage & fortitude & no scruples in conquering injustice & evil he will go as far as it takes to overcome it. Walk away happy & contented with a few $$ & just the clothes he is wearing.

Reacher. Alone in the Dark. Armed and dangerous!

Our first audio book, we weren't really sure what to expect. However, we really enjoyed it! It was quite different to listen to a book being narrated rather than reading it yourself. The Hard Way is a fab story, keeping you on your toes, with fab characters, especially Jack Reacher. Fab,fab,fab!! We also enjoyed another Lee Child book, One Shot, which also features Ex Military Detective Jack Reacher.

Heavily Abridged

This is an abridged version ~4hours instead of 15 . I recommend you don't buy it.
