Random House presents the audio edition of The Midnight Line: (Jack Reacher 22) by Lee Child, read by Jeff Harding.
Jack Reacher takes an aimless stroll past a pawn shop in a small Midwestern town. In the window he sees a West Point class ring from 2005. It’s tiny. It’s a woman cadet’s graduation present to herself. Why would she give it up? Reacher’s a West Pointer too, and he knows what she went through to get it.
Reacher tracks the ring back to its owner, step by step, down a criminal trail leading west. Like Big Foot come out of the forest, he arrives in the deserted wilds of Wyoming. All he wants is to find the woman. If she’s OK, he’ll walk away. If she’s not … he’ll stop at nothing.
He’s still shaken by the recent horrors of Make Me, and now The Midnight Line sees him set on a raw and elemental quest for simple justice. Best advice: don’t get in his way.
‘Each year Lee Child comes up with another Reacher. Each year I lap it up. Love it... Best one for a while... there is something subversive as well as page-turning... The sentences are short, but that doesn't mean the thinking is small... I don't know another author so skilled at making me turn the page, at putting me in the thick of it all.’ – The Times
‘I just read the new Jack Reacher novel by Lee Child... It is as good as they always are. I read every single one.’ – Malcolm Gladwell
‘Addictive... Child's trademark staccato-style delivers all-action excitement as well as a sombre message about the hypocrisy of the US war on drugs.’ – Metro

Story good - narrator awffullll
As usual Lee Child hits it out the park with his tried and tested story telling. But. And a big but. The narrator is AWFUL. The story is ruined because of how this is being read. Emphasis on the wrong words. Wrong tones, wrong expressions. Just wrong wrong wrong. LEE CHILD PLEASE GET A NEW NARRATOR.
