Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

The edge-of-your-seat, heart-in-mouth new Jack Reacher thriller for 2020 - his 25th adventure. No one's bigger than Jack Reacher.

Jack Reacher gets off the bus in a sleepy no-name town outside Nashville, Tennessee. He plans to grab a cup of coffee and move right along.

Not going to happen.

The town has been shut down by a cyber attack. At the centre of it all, whether he likes it or not, is Rusty Rutherford. He's an average IT guy, but he knows more than he thinks.

As the bad guys move in on Rusty, Reacher moves in on them....

And now that Rusty knows he's protected, he's never going to leave the big man's side.

Reacher might just have to stick around and find out what the hell's gone wrong...and then put it right, like only he can.

Critic Reviews

"Jack Reacher is today's James Bond, a thriller hero we can't get enough of." (Ken Follett)

"If you haven't read any Jack Reacher, you have a treat in store...a hitchhiker without a phone, a one-man force for good." (The Times)

"A contemporary version of a knight in shining armour...Reacher is a mythic figure." (Literary Review)

Arthur's

I don't know why but the book did not have the same feel to the stories that I've listen to on other riches books and I've listened to quite a few. I'm side as say but this kind of like watching Tom Cruise play Jack reach it the storys good but crows was always the wrong choice this book have that kind of feel to me and I've loved all the others so maybe it's just me you need to listen for yourself but I think the Arthur's for the story.

Same old, same old.

Reacher does what Reacher does. Stumbles into a simple problem that ends up being the tip of a convoluted iceberg. Once again Reacher ends up being a cross between McGivver and Edge (A man alone). Able to distill the meaning of life from the bend in a blade of grass to indulging his psychopathic need to kill without pause or regret. With Reachers ‘wandering’ years now well established, I would like to see another book set in his formative years. West Point being top of my list. In short a good, if not formulaic, yarn. Not Lee’s best work, not his worst.

Just like the last book not good

The story was just boring and the narrative was poor. I was looking ford to this book after the last book with was really bad. I have read all of the Jack reacher books and was really hopefull that this was going to be like the earlier book's like Echo Burning or Tripwire. But not so. Hope his son can come up with a really great story for the next book. And try to get R.C BRAY FOR THE NEXT NARRATER

Disappointing

I have enjoyed listening to all the previous Reacher books and have been looking forward to this release for months but was disappointed to find Reacher to have lost his edge, the story to meander and regrettably come to the conclusion that perhaps it's time for him to retire before the character deteriorates still further. I have read that Lee Child considered killing him off in the last book he wrote and perhaps he should have done. The only redeeming feature for me was an excellent narration by Jeff Harding.

disappointing

the narration and voice characterizations were awful; detracted from the whole story. switch to victor the assassin series by Tom Woid; vastly superior. sadly I am now done with jack reacher after many years. the last 3 or 4 books in the series were way below par so on to new writers with fresh ideas and competent narrators.
