Publisher's Summary

Winner: Crime & Thriller of the Year - Specsavers National Book Awards 2012
When you're as big and rough as Jack Reacher - and you have a badly-set, freshly-busted nose patched with silver duct tape - it isn't easy to hitch a ride. But Reacher has some unfinished business in Virginia, so he doesn't quit. And at last, he's picked up by three strangers - two men and a woman. But within minutes it becomes clear they're all lying about everything - and then they run into a police roadblock on the highway. There has been an incident, and the cops are looking for the bad guys....
Will they get through because the three are innocent? Or because the three are now four? Is Reacher just a decoy?
With his signature Swiss-watch plotting and heart-thumping suspense, A Wanted Man shows Lee Child at his sublimely skilful best.

Excellent listen - Lee Child is back on top form

Yep, Lee Child is back to some of his best work and is supported wonderfully by Jeff Harding.

I really like the way that this book follows straight on from his last couple of books as it maintains a good threat and narrative to Jack Reachers world. Nothing here on the plot but its well written with enough twists and turns to please everyone who knows Lee Childs' creation.

Jeff Harding is excellent at reading this work - not too fast, great characterisation and really clear diction make this an easy listen.

Well recommended especially when taken with the other books in this range.

Not his best work but still entertaining

Would you try another book written by Lee Child or narrated by Jeff Harding?

This was a great performance of Reacher by Jeff Harding but the story and writing were ok at best. The story seemed far fetched, even for Reacher, and did not seem to be a challenge for him. There was almost no suspense or anything really interesting happening; it seemed to plod along. It is still worth listening to if you are a Reacher fan.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Seemed too easy, but showed Reacher's character quite well.

Which character – as performed by Jeff Harding – was your favourite?


If this book were a film would you go see it?
