Jack Reacher takes aim at the White House in the sixth novel in Lee Child’s New York Times bestselling series.
Skilled, cautious, and anonymous, Jack Reacher is perfect for the job: to assassinate the vice president of the United States. Theoretically, of course. A female Secret Service agent wants Reacher to find the holes in her system, and fast—because a covert group already has the vice president in their sights. They’ve planned well. There’s just one thing they didn’t plan on: Reacher.
I’ve enjoyed listening to many of the Reacher stories, but this one was actually aggravating. So often the story just stalled as the author filled in with mindless details and speculation. It’s one thing to set the environment - in this book the descriptive interludes are the vast majority of the story. Even listening at 2X wasn’t enough - I found myself often skipping ahead and hoping it would end.
