Better Off Dead: Jack Reacher, Book 26 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Brought to you by Penguin.
Reacher never backs down from a problem.
And he's about to find a big one, on a deserted road in Arizona, where a car has crashed into the only tree for miles around.
Minutes later, Reacher is heading into town. To introduce himself to the shadowy crew who made it happen.
Their boss has a terrifying reputation, and the stakes are high. Just to get in and meet him, Reacher is going to have to achieve the impossible.
To get answers will be even harder. There are people in this hostile, empty place who would rather die than reveal their secrets.
But then, if Reacher is coming after you, you might be better off dead.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Maybe it is time REACHER retired. And you find a different direction to go in. Please don't leave him to die by himself, of old age. Leave him with some dignity. As we all remember how he was.
I will take this as an indicator of things to come and I will not purchase or bother to read any future Reacher books.
This was a waste of my $15.99 and I feel cheated and ripped off.
Since watching the Reacher movie I've read all the books and usually have had a hard time putting them down. This one was the opposite.
I struggled after the first chapter. After perhaps four attempts I got a third of the way through before skipping to the end to see if it was an end worth reading to. For me it wasn't.
I usually pre-order the books. I guess this time I'll wait for the reviews.
I won’t be buying another Jack Reacher, I’ll go back to the Jack I know and have enjoyed in previous books.

I have read all the other books in the series and loved them all - but this just doesn’t feel like a Lee Child book, it feels wrong. I’m not sure wether his brother is now the lead writer or they are out of ideas but this is (in my opinion) the worst Reacher book by a mile.
I wish they were more books from when Reacher was still in the MP’s.
Unfortunately, this book and the previous, both by Andrew Child but with Lee’s input have been a disappointment. So much so in this, Better Off Dead, with the incredibly annoying change to first person (why dear god, why!) and Reacher not behaving the same, that at 30% through the book I’m king about giving up.
Mr Child, we the fans did not approve of the great Tom Cruise in the films for all the reasons that I know you understand. The same is happening to your awesome character now - he has lost a foot in height and a 100 lbs. Please bring him back as he should be!
Is Child going the same way as Wilbur Smith? Wilbur's name prominently on the cover but not actually written by him. The difference between the genuine to the upstart small print author was obvious. The books are very far short of the Smith only originals.
Ok, we have to wait and see what sort of a job Child the Younger does in his first solo Reacher book but it will never be the same again.
I won't bother about going into the analysis of the book, the plot and everything else that so many other reviewers have done such a brilliant job with. They are right. This is just an insulting money spinning attempt to get money from so many thousands of loyal Reacher fans. Enjoy your money Lee but just call a halt to the gravy train. Let Jack go and put an end to this sham.
