Inhaltsangabe

Number one New York Times best-selling author Lee Child returns with a gripping new powerhouse thriller featuring Jack Reacher, "one of this century's most original, tantalizing pop-fiction heroes" (The Washington Post).

Reacher takes a stroll through a small Wisconsin town and sees a class ring in a pawn shop window: West Point 2005. A tough year to graduate: Iraq, then Afghanistan. The ring is tiny, for a woman, and it has her initials engraved on the inside. Reacher wonders what unlucky circumstance made her give up something she earned over four hard years. He decides to find out. And find the woman. And return her ring. Why not?

So begins a harrowing journey that takes Reacher through the upper Midwest, from a lowlife bar on the sad side of small town to a dirt-blown crossroads in the middle of nowhere, encountering bikers, cops, crooks, muscle, and a missing persons PI who wears a suit and a tie in the Wyoming wilderness.

The deeper Reacher digs, and the more he learns, the more dangerous the terrain becomes. Turns out the ring was just a small link in a far darker chain. Powerful forces are guarding a vast criminal enterprise. Some lines should never be crossed. But then, neither should Reacher.

Kritikerstimmen

"Narrator Dick Hill's gruff, evenly paced voice has become the voice of Jack Reacher, even when Reacher says nothing.... Hill successfully voices the many characters, male and female, cop and criminal, whom Reacher encounters." (AudioFile)

The old Jack Reacher is back

With the ‘The Midnight Line' Lee Child brings back the Reacher, we fell in love with. I was ready to give up on him during the last couple of books, which appeared to me flat and construed, but the new book surprised me. It is not just the reappearance of the old Reacher, powerful, stubborn and self-assured, who will set out to put things right against all odds, but also the haunting and evocative storyline resonated strongly with me. It is an emotional story, deeply moving with a strong message. It is a story about forgotten heroes and society’s indifference and neglect.

In a pawnshop in Wisconsin Reacher finds a class ring West Point 2005. The ring is small with the initials engraved on the inside and obviously made for a petite woman. Why would somebody give up a ring like that? Reacher would not be Reacher, if he was not piqued to find out more. He sets out on a quest, which quickly draws him into a quagmire of corruption, organized crime and drug dealers and no wonder, soon enough, he becomes a target himself.

Of course, we all know, how likely it is that one guy beats up a bunch of other guys, not just once, but with a certain regularity. It really is highly unlikely, but we would love it to be true. Jack Reacher is a fairy tale figure for adults and his existence would give us comfort in a world, where fairness and justice are hard to find sometimes.

Not my book

Another american Superhero Looks after a heroin addicted vereran after she sold a Westpoint ring to a pawn shop.

When the Super Hero find out about it, he has fistfights with 100s of People which he always wins. The Sujet is set in todays America within the heroin crisis, the biggest mess up of the FDA, which makes the Contergan crisis look easy.

But the Story is slow, unrealistic an to be frank, boring. I did not like it. It was ok for my Walking exercises but really not much more.

Absolutely boring story and awful speaker.

Absolutely boring story and awful speaker. That was definitely the last Reacher audiobook for me. Als never again do I want to have to listen to Dick Hill.
