"The listener who begins Child's latest Jack Reacher thriller tonight will likely be done tomorrow. It's one of Child's best, with an unprecedented and astounding opening scene, which narrator Dick Hill delivers flawlessly. Then the story slows down as the relentless Reacher tries to figure out what's going on. Here Dick Hill's coherent and captivating reading keeps listeners focused. Later the story explodes again as government agents, the cops, an important politician, a foreign beauty, an alleged former Russian political commissar, and a pack of paid thugs pursue Reacher, all bent on extracting vital information from him. Thanks to Hill's dependable characterizations and thoughtful delivery of the plot, the listener hangs on every word, waiting for the bloodbath that's sure to come. A.L.H.
