Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of The Visitor by Lee Child, read by Jeff Harding.

Sergeant Amy Callan and Lieutenant Caroline Cooke have a lot in common.

Both were army highflyers. Both were acquainted with Jack Reacher. Both were forced to resign from the service.

Now they're both dead.

Found in their own homes, naked, in a bath full of paint.

Apparent victims of an army man. A loner, a smart guy with a score to settle, a ruthless vigilante.

A man just like Jack Reacher.

I enjoyed the first two books more.

A good mystery. I didn’t guess the killer. Still suspenseful and has some action but not as enjoyable as the first two.

Kept me guessing.

Story kept me interested, wanting to keep listening. Left unanswered question re one character which seemed to be a hole in the story. Another good performance by Jeff Harding.

Keeps you guessing

I really enjoyed the mystery of this one. It wasn't just who done it. But how and why as well.

Classic Reacher

Action, mystery, twists, turns. Gender roles disappointing: Lamar vilified by Reacher. Harper is a tease.

4th Jack Reacher novel

Really enjoying reading these novels in the order they were written. still wondering why short Tom Cruise was given the Jack Reacher role when he's such a different build in the novel.

I'm a big fan of Reacher but...

...there were moments in this book that made him seem like such a clueless dolt, not the expert ex-military police officer we know him as. This made some scenes so unbearable to listen to, you might doubt this is actually a Reacher novel. His womanising nature is problematic here too, sometimes he comes across as barely controlling his sexual urges by veiling it in some half-hearted notion of chivalry. Nevertheless, the overall story did have an intriguing hook, was pretty enjoyable and kept me guessing until the end.

Unfortunately the narrator grated on me so badly. His voice has a cadence about it that makes every sentence sound like he's reading the book in some kind of bullet point format, or that he's recorded the thing one line at a time. On top of that his voice for Reacher I think is a big factor in making the character sound like an idiot. It looks like all these books are narrated by Jeff Harding, so I'll probably have to go back to reading instead of listening for the rest of the series.

Meh

Story wasn’t as good as he usually is but the narrator was great. Dragged it out and the storyline wasn’t plausible.

Narrator

I’m sorry but Jeff Harding as a narrator did nothing for me, couldn’t even listen to the whole book! I must be more attentive with my preview. So sad as I’ve read so many Lee Child’s, Jack Reacher, and was excited to be able to listen! I do hope other Lee Child audios have other narrators!

Not bad

Easy listen, not earth shattering but pretty good. You can always rely on Jack Reacher

Jack Reacher = easy listening

Here is another great story involving our favourite Hobo. A few decent twists and good to see Reacher under the thumb sometimes.

Interesting story with twists. Great narration.

Really enjoyed the plot, and the narrator was much better than that used in a previous version which I returned. Most memorable moment "......eyes went wide in sudden panic and then she died". Lots of good lines, characters clearly defined in the voices. This is really helpful.

I have heard all the Reacher books and enjoyed them all. But this is probably the best!

Author Breaks Trust with His Readers

Any additional comments?

Any reader of a "who done it" expects plot twists. In fact they are crucial to an entertaining read. Lee Child abandons believability in this book. He provide's clues to the murder's identity that are totally bogus. I refer to the scene where the killer is described crossing a name off of a list and is interrupted by an army corporal. Bull shit to the whole story.

very predictable

it's a basic crime investigation, unfortunately one that relies on the who done it surprise, but it isn't really a surprise.

still very easy to listen to and I was still compelled to listen to see how it they would discover the truth...

I will listen to more Jack reacher but 1-2-3 are better than four. I will try 5 after a intermission.

A darker Reacher novel

An original story, excellently told and kept me guessing until the very end. Surprises laced with tragedy and perseverance. Highly recommended.

Very poor narrator

I found the book lifeless & failed to grab my attention. Possibly due to the narrator.

‘ Good ‘

As usual Jef Harding is a perfect narrator for Jack Reacher.
I enjoyed this story, but it was a little far fetched, but still enjoyable.

Good but predictable story line

I enjoyed the book, to be fair not my favourite Reacher story as I did guess who the villain was about a third way through. Its well worth listening too though, a good story and brilliantly read by Jeff Harding

Obvious

This was a little disappointing compared to the first two books. I found the story very obvious from early on in the book.
