"Hook" Hobie is harboring a thirty-year-old secret and a multimillion-dollar swindle plan. To tamper with either could be painfully fatal. Former MP Jack Reacher may inadvertently uncover the secret as he tries to learn why the son of an elderly couple was never listed among the Vietnam dead. The plot alone keeps you on edge; Garrick Hagon's rendition of it makes the edge even sharper. A relentless but unrushed pace, outstanding portrayals of minor characters, and a truly chilling villain play off the neutral rendering of Reacher. Only Jody, Reacher's love interest, doesn't hit the mark, sounding too ingenuous for a sharp Wall Street lawyer. That tiny reservation aside, take this tape on a long car trip and enjoy!
