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.

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.

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!

Frustrating

Willing to suspend belief with Reacher books however this was absurd in the extreme. Harding normally does a good job narrating this time he did all the voices female and male he would use his own voice for the ‘she said, he said.’
Johnny needs a rest from Reacher.

Keeps you guessing.

Really enjoyed the story, but still too many _ he said, she said.
Monotonous narration.

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.

Pity about the narrator ...

Although I am loving the Jack Reacher series, this book was a chore to listen to. If it wasn't that the story was so good, I would have given up after the first half hour. The narrator is one of the worst I have listened to, not finishing his sentences and applying the same sing song cadence to all the sentences he reads.

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.

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.

Drivel

Regrettably lee child has let jack reacher loose all credibility. Silly plot, with brain dead FBI agents. 90% of this book is just padding

Very Good but not not as good as his others

Narrator good, performance good, Just not quite as good a story as some of the other. But good enough to get on with his next book.

Entertaining...

An excellent narration by Jeff Harding, as ever. Not much of a mystery as any avid Agatha Christie student will know who the perpetrator is by Chapter Five but good entertainment none the less.

very enjoyable :)

Another book that I have thoroughly enjoyed. I think that if you read a lot of criminals then all the plots are quite similar. i do enjoy the characters and the story itself. just off to get the next one :)

Good narration let down by story

Having tried a couple of later Reacher stories which I enjoyed thought I'd try a couple of earlier books. Whilst an interesting idea there were a few 'clues' and details that just didn't match with the final ending. Bad editing? Narration was excellent but not enough to lift the poor story.
