What's especially enjoyable about Dick Hill's reading of this Jack Reacher prequel is that Reacher even sounds younger. In Child's latest (the eighth Reacher yarn) and best since THE KILLING FLOOR, Reacher, a 29-year-old MP, is called out when a general dies, the general's wife is murdered, and two Special Forces soldiers are taken out soon after. Aside from the fast-paced action, listeners learn more about Reacher's complicated past than in all the previous books combined. Injecting extra verve, Hill sounds like he's enjoying his narration. Jack Reacher and Dick Hill are welcome friends. A.L.H. 2005 Audie Award Finalist (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
