"This was another excellent Jack Reacher story. In this story he was hired by the secret service to assassinate the vice president elect, in theory of course. He brings sgt (ex) Neagle in to help him. The person who was in charge of the detail of protecting the vice president (Brock Armstrong) elect was an ex-girl friend of Jack Reacher's (now) dead brother. Jack has to tell her that her job is impossible. In just a few days, he found several ways that he could have killed Armstrong. Of course the reason for the check on ways to kill Armstrong where not just theoretical. There was an expected attempt on his life and Reacher gets hired to help check that out. I found this a very interesting story and really enjoyed it. " said.

" Of all the Jack Reacher novels I've read, this one didn't do much for me. It was still a good story and I bet it would make an excellent movie, but it just didn't pull me in. I'm still a huge fanof Lee Child and his Reacher novels and will read ever last one!! " said.

" Pretty good, the usual stuff you'd expect from a Jack Reacher novel. I didn't much like the reason for the attempts on the VP-elect's life. Seemed kinda anti-climatic after all the build up on how smart and competent the bad guys were supposed to be. Still, it was an entertaining read. " said.

" The book is awesome. The thriller, the action and the suspense, with a twitch of sadness. Gives a lot of insight about the protagonist's relation with his older brother, Joe. The moment when Froelich dies, that's when the book start to get more interesting. All in all, a great read. " said.

"A compelling installment in a high-velocity, entertaining series. This one seemed slightly different from some of its predecessors, with the plot line being less driven by chance and more by design/recruitment (which, frankly, makes more sense to me). Inserting Reacher into a Secret Service operation/situation was interesting, and it worked out pretty well (in terms of story line).

The sustained tension/drama is the defining feature of the book (and, from my perspective, the series). Child begins with a relatively quick start (although, frequently, the perspective skewed/confusing) followed by sustained momentum throughout - at least for me these are tough to put down - ultimately wrapped up with a terse, no frills conclusion. Boom... then that's that....

Reacher is Reacher, and he's not for everyone (violent, analytical, unsentimental, functionally arrogant), but he stays pretty much in character throughout. I have no idea if I'll ever read 20 of these, but I'm confident (at this point) I'll read the next one...

"A Review of the Audiobook

Originally released in 2007 by Brilliance Audio.
Read by Dick Hill
Duration: 16 hours, 34 minutes
Unabridged


Jack Reacher is back. He is tracked down by his deceased brother's former colleague in the Secret Service (and ex-girlfriend) because she wants him to take a run at the security around the Vice President-elect in order to test it.

It turns out there is a serious plot to kill the Vice President-elect and Reacher and a partner he has brought in to help join in to hunt for the plotters.

This is a typical Reacher book - lots of snide comments, fistfights and even gunplay. The part where he is brought in by the Secret Service is a stretch, but Lee Child makes it palatable.

The audiobook is read by veteran reader Dick Hill. He gives Reacher a strong voice and I think he really gets the character.

I rate this audiobook 4 stars out of 5.

"For basically being homeless and unemployed Jack always seems to find himself in tense life and world changing situations. As ex military with high clearance levels he is sought after by the leader of the Secret Service detail tasked with protecting the vice-president elect from assassination. There have been viable threats against the vp and Jack is asked to "assassinate" him. In other words to pretend to be someone out to kill the vp and find the holes in his protection detail.

Meanwhile there are people out to derail Jacks efforts and not only kill the vp but also Jack himself.

Fast paced as always. Great thriller series full of government conspiracies and covering your butt.

"The idea is very good, No one really give any attention to the VP so when he is a target of an assassination plot, it's somehow unique...
On a side note, not related to the book, TNT tried to make the VP cool giving him a secret organization to protect the republic in Agent X and the show backfired and got cancelled after only one season with Sharon Stone as its lead star so :/ the VP is still lame.
Anyway, The idea was good but the reason, the why? was :/ same as the end.
The whole situation between him and Froelich was very awkward.
On the other hand Neagley and the chase itself were great.
It is a little better than the previous book though.
6/20 now! I think, the journey continues...
