Description-
  • "The best thriller writer of the moment." -- The New York Times "Child is a master of the thriller genre." -- Times Union (Albany, NY) "All [Jack Reacher novels] are ripping yarns." -- Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly Thumbing across the scorched Texas desert, Jack Reacher has nowhere to go and all the time in the world to get there. Cruising the same stretch of two-lane blacktop is Carmen Greer. For Reacher, the lift comes with a hitch. Carmen's got a story to tell, and it's a wild one -- all about her husband, her family secrets, and a hometown that's purely gothic. She's also got a plan. Reacher's part of it. And before the sun sets, this ride could cost them both their lives. "As sweltering as the El Paso sun... Bottom line: jalapeño-hot suspense." -- People "[A] seamless, rip-roaring thriller." -- Rocky Mountain News "Child...build[s] the suspense to almost unbearable levels." -- St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Jack Reacher fans are generally subject to continuous excitement and may be disappointed that Child's latest moves a little slowly at the beginning. But Dick Hill's solid performance holds the listener's interest until the action picks up. And it does. Ex-GI cop Reacher is traveling through heat-scorched Echo, Texas, when a "good-old-boy's" wife tries unsuccessfully to hire Reacher to kill her husband. When her husband is murdered and Reacher sets out to vindicate the jailed wife, he unmasks the killer, dispatches a hit team, and uncovers the perpetrators of a decade-old crime. Hill is at his very best as Reader duals with the three assassins during a desert thunderstorm. He also has a knack for portraying children (there's a petulant 6-year-old in this one) in a believable way. A.L.H. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine
