61 Hours Lee Child read online review & book description:

“Reacher gets better and better. . . . [This is the] craftiest and most highly evolved of Lee Child’s electrifying Reacher books.”—Janet Maslin, The New York Times
“Child is a superb craftsman of suspense, juggling several plots and keeping his herrings well-rouged. . . . Chances are you’ll want to seek out other Reacher adventures the moment you finish.”—Entertainment Weekly
A bus crashes in a savage snowstorm and lands Jack Reacher in the middle of a deadly confrontation. In nearby Bolton, South Dakota, one brave woman is standing up for justice in a small town threatened by sinister forces. If she’s going to live long enough to testify, she’ll need help. Because a killer is coming to Bolton, a coldly proficient assassin who never misses.
Reacher’s original plan was to keep on moving. But the next 61 hours will change everything. The secrets are deadlier and his enemies are stronger than he could have guessed—but so is the woman he’ll risk his life to save.

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Lee Child's A Wanted Man.
“Masterful . . . a tour-de-force of both structure and suspense.”—The Providence Journal
“Child keeps his foot hard on the throttle. . . . This is Child in top form, but isn’t he always?”—Booklist (starred review)
“Compulsively addictive [with] an explosive climax that will have you tearing out your hair until Reacher’s next appearance.”—The Miami Herald

    Great story in many ways. I couldn't put it down. Two problems. First, I still don't know what the count-down of hours was measuring and secondly, we were left not knowing what happened to Reacher in the end!
  • Very disappointed

    By Rain4444
    Such a disappointing ending after so much buildup. Also, too much of the middle part was description after description of all and sundry.
  • Disappointing

    By rgwgar
    This book was long, slow and tedious. Yes, the bad guy(s) get it in the end, but it was not satisfying. And, you don't really know what happens to Reacher in the end. You assume he gets away, but how is not clear. Not enough action. A lot of build up, but when the bad guy gets it, it's just too quick. A couple of loose ends are never tied up. I kept waiting for the big pay off and I didn't really care when it finally came. I would choose another Reacher book.
  • Jack reacher

    By Rocrob
    I just love all of the Jack Reacher novels. I have read them all and can't wait for the next one. The only question I have is why oh why did they use Tom Cruise to play him. He certainly isn't 6-5 and he totally should not be Jack. Couldn't you find someone better!!!!!
  • Reacher at his best.

    By 4ah
    Another excellent read by Lee Child... Loved that Reacher worked with the PD on this one. Follow close and you'll nab the bad guy.
  • Thrilling and capturing

    By But it's fun
    I have read so many of the jack reacher novels. 61 hours was probably one of my top 5 favorites aside from Worth Dying For, and One Shot. it kept me on the edge of my seat and the ending is so intense I couldn't put the book down.
  • Not the best of Reacher

    By Salie207
    Love Reacher, but this was too wordy and repetitive and had a very poor ending. Not sure what the point of the poor ending was, as numerous better endings would have been so easy.
