Jeff Harding's narration is compelling in this slow-burning thriller which keeps you in your seat from dramatic opening to haunting denouement.
Jack Reacher - hero - brooks no opposition in his one-man search for answers and for justice in a contemporary world filled by lies, injustice and selfishness. Lee Child invokes an America where the innocent are assuredly victims and the duplicitous assuredly triumph.
Reacher has all the powers he needs to investigate wrongdoing and his single-mindedness is clearly attractive enough to secure the cooperation of the local police, in the form of Woman Police Officer Vaughn. And her own voyage of self-discovery provides the unresolved romantic backdrop to Reacher's personal crusade.
