Has Jack Reacher finally met his match? 61 Hours ended with Reacher trapped in a desperate situation from which escape seemed impossible. Even for him. Was that really the end of the road for the maverick loner?
Apparently not. There’s deadly trouble in the corn country of Nebraska...and Jack Reacher walks right into it. First he falls foul of a local clan that has terrified an entire county into submission. But it’s the unsolved case of a missing child, already decades-old, that Reacher can’t let go.

This is the ABRIDGED version, a fact that seems to have been lost on the previous reviewer - the full version is available next month and is almost 13 hours long, so perhaps reviewers should check their facts before bad mouthing a great author. True Reacher fans will love this, it brings to a conclusion the story of Child's previous book and ties up the loose ends left over from that book. A great listen; Lee Child continues to deliver edge of your seat books featuring Jack Reacher and I for one wish he'd release 2 books a year every year!
Worth buying for
As the previous reviewer stated, this is the abridged version. But I simply couldn't wait.
Reacher's back and once again Lee Child has done him proud. Dare i say it, there was a slightly more vulnerable side to Reacher during this book (only slight though) which was interesting to see. But Reacher is still a tough nut to crack, and you can't help but get immersed in the whole mystery of the missing child plot. Although this book does follow on from the last one (61 hours), you really don't need to have read the previous one first to enjoy this. Having said that, if you're thinking of buying a Reacher novel (and you havn't before) then I would suggest purchasing 61 hours first. Just for the simple fact that you can enjoy the continuation of this story. 5 stars - well done Lee Child.
another dose of pure escapism
I'm an avid Jack Reacher fan. This latest audiobook is as fast paced and action packed as usual. Lee Child now assumes that we all know Reacher's character in such detail that he almost doesn't bother to remind us. If you've not read a Reacher book, I wouldn't start with this one - the characterisation is not as rich as usual but if, like me, there's a rush of excitement when a new Reacher appears in iTunes, buy it, you won't be disappointed!
