In Virginia for a visit with the replacement commander of the 110th MPs, Major Susan Turner, Jack Reacher is slapped with criminal charges and a paternity suit and recalled to active duty. Major Turner is incarcerated and refuses to see him. Child (A Wanted Man) ups the stakes again—Reacher has to break himself and Turner out of jail, get to Los Angeles without being apprehended or killed, and identify the corrupt officials who framed them. Though it's part of an extended story arc, this work stands well alone. Dick Hill, who has performed all the books in the series, continues his high-quality narration here.
VERDICT A must-listen for Child's fans and recommended to anyone who enjoys fast-paced, action-driven thrillers.
