61 Hours - Jack Reacher, Bk 14 - Audio CD - Unabridged Author:Lee Child, Dick Hill (Narrator) Sixty-one hours. Not a minute to spare. A tour 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 a long enough to testif... more »y, 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 whose life he'll risk his own to save.
Reacher can really get into some situations, this time he gets on a tour bus with senior citizens just hitching a ride because it is winter time in the Dakotas and freezing, but he has no idea they would skid and get stranded in a town with biker trouble and he ends up in the middle of it----again---I really like Jack Reacher, he doesn't have a care in the world and travels with only what is on his back but his military training is always a huge help in every situation he gets in.
This novel was pretty lame. I had put this on my wish list before I read the last one so when it arrived, I read it despite my notion that this series is spent. Even the other reviews on this web site mention the way it "slows down" and is "repetitive" yet they still give it good reviews. If I wanted to read a slow, repetitive book I would at least expect skillful prose or insightful commentary. The 61 hours of the title is an amateurish writing trick to try to instill some excitement for the reader. It is like Lee child watched Jack Bauer but didn't get the idea. Would I read the next one? Maybe. I sure would not buy it. I do not even think I would use a PBS credit for it. Sounds harsh, but that is my unvarnished opinion.

Not enough fight scenes in this one. Story was not as nail biting as others have been. I thought character of Plato was a little over the top as well. Would have like more interaction between him and Reacher.
