New York City. Two in the morning. A subway car heading uptown. Jack Reacher, plus five other passengers. Four are okay. The fifth isn’t.

In the next few tense seconds, Reacher will make a choice—and trigger an electrifying chain of events in this gritty, gripping masterwork of suspense by #1 New York Times bestseller Lee Child.

Susan Mark was the fifth passenger. She had a lonely heart, an estranged son, and a big secret. Reacher, working with a woman cop and a host of shadowy feds, wants to know just how big a hole Susan Mark was in, how many lives had already been twisted before hers, and what danger is looming around him now.

A race has begun through the streets of Manhattan in a maze crowded with violent, skilled soldiers on all sides of a shadow war. Susan Mark’s plain little life was critical to dozens of others in Washington, California, Afghanistan—from a former Delta Force operator now running for the US Senate, to a beautiful young woman with a fantastic story to tell, to a host of others. Every person has one thing in common: They’re all lying to Reacher. A little. A lot. Or maybe just enough to get him killed.

In a novel that slams through one hairpin surprise after another, Lee Child unleashes a thriller that spans three decades and gnaws at the heart of America. For Jack Reacher, it’s a mystery with only one answer—the kind that comes when you finally look your worst enemy in the eye.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Bookmarks Magazine | 2/3/2014

    " "Though critics applauded Jack Reacher's latest adventure, they harbored no illusions about this improbably indestructible man with an encyclopedic knowledge of weaponry and combat techniques. Child is a gifted storyteller whose plot twists and cliff-hangers ratchet up the pace until readers can barely hang on, but reviewers agreed that while Gone Tomorrow is absolute fun, some flat writing, cheesy dialogue, and a nondescript sense of place keep it from rising above the genre. On the other hand, the Philadelphia Inquirer speculated that highbrow prose and extensive scene setting might have interfered with the plot. A few critics also lamented Jack's relatively late start in ""kicking butt for democracy"" (Newsday). Still, readers searching for an edge-of-your-seat thriller need look no further." "

    " My family is currently in the midst of Jack Reacher mania, and my reading Gone Tomorrow was a byproduct of that. Books like this are fun to read once in a while. But yes, it's kind of ridiculous, and the author is waaaaay too in love with his protagonist here. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Mary Gediman | 1/25/2014

    " This book was pretty good although rather slow at times. The plot was interesting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Jessi | 1/23/2014

    " Jack Reacher, acting like a bad mofo once again. This time up against an old lady, a younger lady, and 20 or so bad dudes from Afghanistan or some where in those parts. The plot's thin, the characterization's weak, but the story rolls on with a few interesting facts, like, did you know that Afghani women disembowel the enemy while he watches, and then lets him die from the infection? Gruesome. "
