“The best one yet.”—Stephen King
Someone has tried to kill the French president. How many snipers can shoot from three-quarters of a mile with total confidence? John Kott—a U.S. Army marksman gone bad—is one of them. After fifteen years in prison, he’s out . . . and there’s a G8 summit coming up, packed with enough world leaders to tempt any assassin.

If anyone can stop Kott, it’s the man who beat him before: Jack Reacher. And though he’d rather work alone, Reacher is teamed with rookie analyst Casey Nice. They’re facing a rough road, full of local thugs, double-crosses, and no backup if things go wrong. Reacher never gets too close. But this time it’s personal.
This edition includes the bonus short story “Not a Drill.”

I liked this book, I thought it was interesting, I thought it was as good as any of Child's Jack Reacher books and I have read every one of them. I recommend this book.

It's an interesting story. Not a huge nail biter. But as always, Dick Hill puts in a tremendous performance. He IS Jack Reacher.

Love all the books, much better than the movies. Tom Cruise ruins the movies, should have used Chris Hemsworth.

Boring, the plot was weak. Everytime now I listen to a Reacher book, I can't think how they got away with putting Tom Cruise in the movie, what an insult.

The narrator is awful. He completely ruins Reacher as a character and his attempts at female voices are comical.

I have to agree with the other reviewers. This is not one of Lee Child's best efforts. Too much talk and not enough "Reacher" action.

It could have been a good book. It should have been a good book. Instead, it was a tired, overworked, poorly planned work that I wish I had not spent money on. I feel (and have felt for some time, sadly) that the author has lost the formula for Successful writing. I've always considered these books to be light reading, lacking much depth - yet, entertaining enough to pass the time. As much as I feel that "Reacher" could be a successful long-lived series, instead, there seems to be a painful shallowness to the last handful of books. Is it time that Reacher walked off into the sunset? The narrator: as much as I love listening to this narrator, it seems that he is "overacting/over reading" in the last books. I have found myself wincing at the over emphasis and sometimes poor timing of his reading. Obviously, it is easy to see that I am disappointed (and have been for some time) in this book. (Always hoping that the next book will pleasantly surprise me as I've been a faithful reader through the years.)

I have enjoyed Child's writing and Mr. Hill's narrations but on this book everything, voice, story, all of the things that have enthralled me before seemed tired and worn out. Save yourself the agony of listening to this unfocused, sadly under read story. I have come to expect so much more. Go back and re-listen the first book in the series, the difference is night and day. Save your credit, save your time, stay away from this stinker.

I have always enjoyed the Jack Reacher stories. I was very disappointed in this one Very mundane, predictable and unexpectedly boring.
