Winter in South Dakota. Blowing snow, icy roads, a tired driver. A bus skids and crashes and is stranded in a gathering storm.
There's a small town twenty miles away, where a vulnerable witness is guarded around the clock.There's a strange stone building five miles further on, all alone on the prairie.There's a ruthless man who controls everything from the warmth of Mexico.
Jack Reacher hitched a ride in the back of the bus. A life without baggage has many advantages. And crucial disadvantages too, when it means facing the arctic cold without a coat. But he's equipped for the rest of his task. He doesn't want to put the world to rights. He just doesn't like people who put it to wrongs.
NOW READ THE SEQUEL: Although the Jack Reacher novels can be read in any order, the ending of 61 Hours is directly followed by Worth Dying For.
And be sure not to miss Reacher's newest adventure, no.26, Better off Dead! ***COMING SOON and AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER NOW***
My third Jack Reacher. You need your snow shoes on for this one. More of a slow burn than the previous two and not as many broken bones either. The ending is a little predictable but the story is up to Child's usual standard-excellent. I can't immage any other narrator for these stories than Jeff Harding, "old gravel voice" fits the main character like a glove.
I enjoy Lee Child.
This is very well read, it is not until you hear it, do you realise the rhythm in the words.
Another great novel.
I am a fan of Mr Child and I have read all of his books. I am now listening to the audio books and they give a different dynamic to the stories. That narrator is excellent, setting just the right pace. I tend to listen in three hour sessions, which for me is just about right.
