Summary:

The bestselling novel featuring the “wonderfully epic hero” (People) who inspired the hit film Jack Reacher.

Jack Reacher is an innocent bystander when he witnesses a woman being kidnapped off a Chicago street in broad daylight. In the wrong place at the wrong time, he’s kidnapped with her. Chained together, locked in the back of a stifling van, and racing across America to an unknown destination for an unknown purpose, they’re at the mercy of a group of men demanding an impossible ransom. Because this mysterious woman is worth more than Reacher ever suspected. Now he has to save them both—from the inside out—or die trying.

    I had a hard time turning it off. The narrator took a bit to get used to. The 'he said' and 'she said' was annoying. With the different voices you can tell who is talking, but maybe that's an audio book thing. I finally decided it was amusing.

    Great story. But this guy sure seems to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    This audiobook did not disappoint. It is the usual fast pace action and suspense we have come to expect from a Jack Reacher novel. In this book he saves a kidnapped young woman who is an FBI agent and helps take down some really strange militia group with their sadistic leader. Jack is his usual super-hero self and saves the day and girl with little outside help. The ending let me down a bit. Reacher saves the girl and prevents a major crisis with a militia group and a political crisis. As a thank you he gets dumped by the highway, injured, with torn and dirty clothes, no money and no breakfast. Thank you Uncle Sam. Also Dick Hill is a better Jack Reacher narrator.

    Like all books in this series, "Die Trying" is a compelling page turner. Well-written, fast-paced, intelligent and intriguing. Highly recommended.

    Riveting book. 3 book of reacher series listened to. Did not want to stop. Plot intriguing and building to finale.
