#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - Jack Reacher returns in another fast-moving, action-packed, suspenseful book from Lee Child.

You can leave the army, but the army doesn't leave you. Not always. Not completely, notes Jack Reacher--and sure enough, the retired military cop is soon pulled back into service. This time, for the State Department and the CIA.

Someone has taken a shot at the president of France in the City of Light. The bullet was American. The distance between the gunman and the target was exceptional. How many snipers can shoot from three-quarters of a mile with total confidence? Very few, but John Kott--an American marksman gone bad--is one of them. And after fifteen years in prison, he's out, unaccounted for, and likely drawing a bead on a G8 summit packed with enough world leaders to tempt any assassin.

If anyone can stop Kott, it's the man who beat him before: Reacher. And though he'd rather work alone, Reacher is teamed with Casey Nice, a rookie analyst who keeps her cool with Zoloft. But they're facing a rough road, full of ruthless mobsters, Serbian thugs, close calls, double-crosses--and no backup if they're caught. All the while Reacher can't stop thinking about the woman he once failed to save. But he won't let that that happen again. Not this time. Not Nice.

Reacher never gets too close. But now a killer is making it personal.

Praise for Personal

"The best one yet." --Stephen King

"Reacher is the stuff of myth, a great male fantasy. . . . One of this century's most original, tantalizing pop-fiction heroes . . . Child does a masterly job of bringing his adventure to life with endless surprises and fierce suspense." --The Washington Post

"Yet another satisfying page-turner." --Entertainment Weekly

"Reacher is always up for a good fight, most entertainingly when he goes mano a mano with a seven-foot, 300-pound monster of a mobster named Little Joey. But it's Reacher the Teacher who wows here." --Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times

"Jack Reacher is today's James Bond, a thriller hero we can't get enough of. I read every one as soon as it appears." --Ken Follett

"Reacher's just one of fiction's great mysterious strangers." -- Maxim

"If you like fast-moving thrillers, you'll want to take a look at this one." --John Sandford

"Fans won't be disappointed by this suspense-filled, riveting thriller." -- Library Journal (starred review)

"Child is the alpha dog of thriller writers, each new book zooming to the top of best-seller lists with the velocity of a Reacher head butt." -- Booklist

"Every Reacher novel delivers a jolt to the nervous system." -- Kirkus Reviews

This was my first Jack Reacher novel and probably my last. Although I've read books written together by Janet Evanovich and Lee Child and thought they were awesome, Lee Child by himself is waaaaay too wordy for me. Much to my dismay, the book was 10 discs long and could have easily been done in 5. Additionally, disc 9 had a problem with one of the tracks which caused me to miss what happened to one of the suspects. On one track he was there, and on the next track the guy was no longer a suspect. Such is the problem with audiobooks. If you've got nothing else to read, then I say go ahead and take on this book and trudge through it for the "surprise" ending, otherwise, look for something else.
