Don’t Know Jack by Diane Capri

Don't Know Jack by Diane Capri Purchase:
    I absolutely wanted to listen to the book in one sitting. I listened during my commute and I stayed in my car and listened until the end of the chapter every time I drove.

     

    It’s been a while since we first met Lee Child’s Jack Reacher in Killing Floor. Fifteen years and sixteen novels later, Reacher still lives off the grid, until trouble finds him, and then he does whatever it takes, much to the delight of listeners and the dismay of villains. Now someone big is looking for him.

    Who?

    And why?

    Hunting Jack Reacher is a dangerous business, as FBI Special Agents Kim Otto and Carlos Gaspar are about to find out. Otto and Gaspar are by-the-book hunters who know when it’s necessary to break the rules, but they Don’t Know Jack. Reacher is a stone cold killer. Is he their friend or their enemy? Only the secrets hidden in Margrave, Georgia will tell them. Is Reacher a wanted man?

    Listeners love Don’t Know Jack!

    Review by Tina:

    Would you consider the audio edition of Don’t Know Jack to be better than the print version?

    They both have their strengths but it’s great to hear the audio bring it to life. The writing is stylized and so is the performance. They match perfectly. It feels like those cop shows from the 50’s – ‘just the facts, mam.’

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I’m torn. Otto and Gaspar are so well suited as partners yet exact opposites. Miami and Detroit! Their repartee is brilliant. Very funny the way they trade nicknames for one another.

    Which scene was your favorite?

    I enjoyed when they are sitting in the police captain’s office in Margate and Otto is observing, waiting for her to show a sign that she is guilty or give something away. Listening to how Otto works as she reads the body language, looking for the tell.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The story and writing are smart. You have to pay attention, keep up. So it’s a very exciting listen. Very compelling.

    Any additional comments?

    I think its odd the narrator has gotten bad comments. She’s great and suits the writing perfectly. The vocabulary is way above average and she makes perfect sense of it.
