Book Description

June 14 2005 Jack Reacher Series (Book 9)
Six shots. Five dead. One heartland city thrown into a state of terror. But within hours the cops have it solved: a slam-dunk case. Except for one thing. The accused man says: You got the wrong guy. Then he says: Get Reacher for me. And sure enough, from the world he lives in - no phone, no address, no commitments - ex–military investigator Jack Reacher is coming. In Lee Child’s astonishing new thriller, Reacher’s arrival will change everything - about a case that isn’t what it seems, about lives tangled in baffling ways, about a killer who missed one shot - and by doing so gives Jack Reacher one shot at the truth....

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

While reader Hill has proven himself to be an all-purpose narrator with a 200-plus audiography, his specialty is interpreting suspense and crime fiction like this bullet-paced thriller. Written lean enough to make Hemingway seem chatty, the ninth novel to feature the resourceful ex-military cop Jack Reacher begins with a bare-bones description of an unemotional sniper prepping for and carrying out a mass slaying in the business area of an unnamed Indiana city. The killer's dispassion is chilling, and Hill, who has narrated the author's previous titles, matches the mood with an objectivity that raises the goose-bump level even higher. When Reacher, one of fiction's more reticent heroes, arrives on the scene, Hill provides him with a brusque, confident, properly manly voice, but adds a note of wariness that subtly suggests the adventurer's cynical nature. This tops a gallery of smart audio portraits, each with his own identifiable accent. Child has purposely designed the novel to move forward unfettered by stylish flourishes, and Hill follows that plan, concentrating mainly on increasing the pace as the story speedballs to its satisfying conclusion.

From Booklist

Jack Reacher has been doing his best to live off the grid, but his past as a military policeman keeps coming back to bite him. This time the biter is a former Gulf War sniper accused of killing six civilians in an unnamed Heartland city. Despite mountains of evidence, the accused claims he's innocent and says enigmatically, "Get Reacher." But why? Reacher, it turns out, has every reason to want the man convicted. Soon enough, though, Jack finds himself working for the defendant's attorney, who happens to be the DA's daughter. As he did in last year's The Enemy, Child combines detail-building procedural style with an all-systems-go thriller narrative, but this time the mix doesn't quite emulsify. In The Enemy, the procedural elements held our interest, but this time we feel like Child is keeping the reins on his story, like a jockey rating a horse that's begging to run. Child finally uses the whip--and the finale is a doozy--but it's a bit too little too late. Still, even a slightly off-stride Reacher can run away from most of the competition in the thriller sweepstakes. Bill Ott

5.0 out of 5 stars Reacher is back and better than ever! June 24 2005
Format:Hardcover
This is Jack Reacher at his best! Six Shots and five people dead in an American midwest city. The police catch the sniper, the only problem is the guy claims he did not do it. In come Reacher and in his indominatable way he turns the case inside out and upside down. The Jack Reacher character is brilliant, multi-layered, but most of all, he kicks ass when he needs to and always gets the girl. One Shot was extremely well written, suspenseful and twisted and turned like all his others, but I think the characterizations of Reacher in this one is probably not as deep as in the previous book, but for a plot driven thriller, it's five stars all the way. Nothing is as it seems in this gritty thriller. This and "A Tourist in the Yucatan" are my favorite thriller reads of 2005!

I've read all of his novels & anxiously awaiting his next one The whole Jack Reacher series is great, I'd recommend them all. The only problem is the movie. Jack Reacher is 6' 5" 230 lbs. Tom Cruise is 5' & maybe 150 lbs, Jack Reacher should be Dwayne Johnson instead,

Very good book by Lee Child, with Jack Reacher as his main character. As usual it is hard to put down as it builds in excitement throughout the book culminating in a surprise at the end of the book.

As a Reacher fan I always look for the unexpected. Gotta find a bigger actor than Tom Cruise for the next movie. Jack Reacher deserves better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best one so far! May 18 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I've read a few other Reachers but this one stands well above the rest. A truly fine lead character has been created here. I have always liked his stature, and wonder how anyone smaller could do a credible job? We'll see!

3.0 out of 5 stars Lee Child - One Shot May 12 2013
By Remi
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Book was in very good condition. However, I expected full sized hardcover book. What I received was A Delacore Press Book, published by Bantam Dell. The book is not a full sized hardcover and I was not aware of this at time of purchase. It may be my mistake, I may have missed something in the write-up.
