The Secret Service agent needs a simple favor of Jack Reacher: "I want to hire you to assassinate the Vice President of the United States," she asks. Newly appointed to the head of the vice presidents security team, she needs Reacher to test their strength, to try to penetrate her detail's shield. Certainly Reacher has the skill, certainly he has the stealth and anonymity. How else will she know her team is truly ready for a threat, than to pit them against Reacher?

What she doesn't let Reacher know, but what he soon finds out, is that a threat, a living but deadly mob of assassins, is targeting the vice president and will stop at nothing to follow through to the end. They are organized, but they didn't factor in Reacher. Only he has the brains and the guts to corner his prey and meet them with justice, without fail.

Lee Child is the pen name of Jim Grant. He writes commercial thrillers about a former military cop named Jack Reacher. Child was born in 1954 and raised in England. Child studied law but also worked backstage at a theatre and eventually worked in commercial television upon graduating college. He produced over forty thousand hours of programming, wrote thousands of commercials, news stories, and trailers. He was laid off after corporate restructuring and began his career as a novelist with his first book Killing Floor. His prose style has been called hardboiled and commercial, and he considers novels the purest form of entertainment.

Jack Reacher takes aim at the White House in the sixth novel in Lee Child’s New York Times bestselling series.
 
Skilled, cautious, and anonymous, Jack Reacher is perfect for the job: to assassinate the vice president of the United States. Theoretically, of course. A female Secret Service agent wants Reacher to find the holes in her system, and fast—because a covert group already has the vice president in their sights. They’ve planned well. There’s just one thing they didn’t plan on: Reacher. Download and start listening now!

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan | 1/26/2017

    " great series! i am definitely hooked! i appreciate the continuance of the same narrator. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda Blalock | 2/17/2014

    " Best Reacher book so far. How in the world is Tom Cruise going to play this great character on screen. Don't ruin it, Tom. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gill | 2/14/2014

    " I enjoyed this more than Echo Burning as Reacher is always best when using his old Army contacts and butting heads with officialdom. In this case it's the Secret Service that come to him for help, ostensibly with a simple security audit but before long Reacher discovers that someone has a personal grudge against the Vice President-elect. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandyboy | 2/13/2014

    " fun but a bit too disposable for me, i made the mistake of reading 2 Reachers in a row (One Shot and then this) which meant Without Fail suffered from a repetition feeling. I'll try it again in a year or so "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 2/11/2014

    " Nancy 5 stars; Ron xx stars "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Larry Rogers | 2/8/2014

    " Reacher ends up on a team investigating the vulnerability of the vice president to an attack. (His involvement has a connection to both his dead brother and to his background in the Army's CID/MPs. It makes fictional sense once the plot, which is convincing, kicks in.) Working with him is his brother's long-time girlfriend and Neleigh, the toughest of his former colleagues, who is also a main character in "Bad Luck and Trouble.) Upon rereading, this book is confirmed in my judgment as the best of the Reacher books (tied with "Echo Burning" and "The Enemy.") It excells in all categories, especially writing. It is incredibly suspenseful and I will read it yet again in a couple of years. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cam | 1/28/2014

    " This is the first Jack Reacher book I read. As soon as I finished it I had to read them all . . . IN ORDER! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patricia Stone | 1/22/2014

    " another excellent Reacher novel. There were a lot of twists and turns in the plot and suspense to the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marilyn | 1/21/2014

    " I like this series, but this one did go a bit overboard. Who is trying to kill the Vice President elect and more importantly, WHY? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Davina Becker | 1/13/2014

    " First book I read of the Jack Reacher series and I still think it was the best Lee Child ever wrote. If you want to read just one Jack Reacher novel, this is the one! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Claire | 1/11/2014

    " It was very good. I always like the Jack Reacher series, particularly when they involve his former Army buddies. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 TeriC | 1/7/2014

    " Not my favorite book in the series but still good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharyn | 1/4/2014

    " It's Jack Reacher, what more can I say? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Boulder | 12/27/2013

    " This is the 6th Jack Reacher book I read this year, started from book 1 early in the year and this is the best by far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Silvia | 12/22/2013

    " Usual fast-paced Jack Reacher thriller, but this one wasn't as engaging as the previous five. This one involves a threat against the vice-president. But, as always, there's more than meets the eye. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Garlan | 9/24/2013

    " ANother fast, entertaining read by Child. He just keeps on cranking out good, action-packed books with good characters, good plot lines and just enough twists and turns to keep you guessing how Reacher is going to get the bad guys. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Peter | 9/15/2013

    " Oh dear. I suppose it had to happen. After 5 Reacher novels that I loved, here is one I didn't. I found the plot too contrived and felt it need a good dose of the blue pencil about half way through. I am moving on to Reacher 7, however. Full of hope that this was just a blip. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Inga Johns | 3/22/2013

    " Pretty good read. Now on to #7 "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue | 1/25/2013

    " This was better, more like the first book in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shell Hodgkinson | 8/14/2012

    " Hired to try and kill the VP, but Reacher is not the only one. I really enjoyed this book, plenty of action and plot twists. As always the question is, can Reacher live up to the challenge? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike OConnor | 8/4/2012

    " Just another good Jack Reacher book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jean | 8/3/2012

    " Jack Reacher comes to the rescue again! What a hero! I so enjoy this series. I recommend that you read this series in order. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sera | 4/11/2012

    " Pretty good one. I found that I had actually read this one while rummaging through some books last night so it's off to Persuader for me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Betty Ann Baer | 4/10/2012

    " This book was a lot of lah de dah. It went on and on and the end was not too climatic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Academicsupport | 5/19/2011

    " Well, another exciting Jack Reacher tale; each one is better than the last! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jo | 4/27/2011

    " Another decent mystery. I just wish I had Reacher's luck. A closet full of expensive suits conveniently appears just when he needs to rub elbows with the secret service. And I'm still wondering about that underwear--just not so much in this book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jayaram | 4/5/2011

    " Jack kills only 2 people again. He does wear a suit in this one though..but otherwise not much fun :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marsha | 4/5/2011

    " All the Jack Reacher books are great. Quick easy reads with alot of action and a good story. Nothing to sink your teeth in, just pure entertainment. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Windy | 3/30/2011

    " OK, thrillers are a secret pleasure for me. I've enjoyed the Jack Reacher series and this one was probably one of the best. I stayed up late to finish it (but thankfully I was still in bed by midnight). Good suspense. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Colleen | 3/14/2011

    " Lee Child has an uncanny knowledge of the landscape of the USA. Jack is again in a nerve racking situation. Great action! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 3/7/2011

    " Just as good as the other books in the series. "
