Publisher's Summary

Late at night in a New York café army-cop-turned-drifter Jack Reacher orders coffee in a cup made of foam, not china, so that he can move on at a moment’s notice.
He owns nothing, carries less, has never encountered a female colleague he can’t bed, or a case he can’t solve.
But now Reacher is confronted by a situation so disturbing and deceptive that the truth eludes him.
Has he painted targets on the good guys’ backs?
So Reacher starts over at square one. He sweats the details and works the clues. As they used to say back in the service, he’s doing it the hard way. Until what started on a busy New York street explodes three thousand miles away in the sleepy English countryside. With Reacher striding alone in the shadows. Armed and dangerous. Invincible.

Classic Reacher

I came across this series a while ago and have spent a fortune buying all the unabridged titles. This one is a good as the rest and although I guessed the central premise early on, that didn't make it less enjoyable.

The Reacher books are basically adventure mysteries with ex American military policeman, Jack Reacher, at their core. He is big and hard and very violent but always with right on his side. Jeff Harding as narrator is by far the best.

Well worth a listen.

In amongst the big boys

Having read a review saying this book is predictable and 'clunking' I have to say it is just that and that is its charm. You know you're going to get Reacher at his uncompromising unforgiving best. Jeff Harding's delivery has been compared with John Wayne without his charm now exchange that for Bogart's Sam Spade's drawl, menacing no nonsense voice over and you have a triumph of character formation over anything as trite as the rambling 'Duke'. The Hard Way is where Reacher mingles with other special forces personale but second leaguer and those with fists but no brains. It's a good yarn and one with twists in unexpected directions.
