Awesome quick bar brawl at the end. Aug 14, Sam Quixote rated it did not like it. Most of the story is a group of military people sat in a room discussing the pros and cons of certain rifles. I have no interest in guns but Child obviously does and goes into detail on the specs which made me feel like I was reading a catalogue. And the characters! The characters that do have names are the dullest of the dull. Except for Jack Reacher whose popularity is utterly inexplicable. Every detail of every scene — no matter how boring — is noted down.
As familiar as I am with author Lee Child's name, I had never read any of his books until now.
Series: Jack Reacher
I usually read a couple of Kindle Singles a month, and when I noticed that "Deep Down" was the 1 Single even before its publication date, I preordered it. The story is set in Washington, DC, in Narrated in the third-person point of view, the story concerns a new sniper rifle that could give US military As familiar as I am with author Lee Child's name, I had never read any of his books until now. Narrated in the third-person point of view, the story concerns a new sniper rifle that could give US military forces an advantage in combat. It's become apparent that someone is leaking classified information.
The "someone" appears to be one of four women officers, all West Pointers, who are giving testimony to a Congressional group and asking for funding for the new weapon. Reacher is called in to play an undercover role to ferret out the one who's leaking information. It wasn't supposed to be a dangerous assignment: just sit in on the hearings, keep a low profile, and chat up the four women until he figures out which one is the culprit.
Using his intuition and powers of observation, he soon learns the truth, but it's something far more sinister than a few leaks about a sniper rifle. And the truth could very well cost him his life as the story built to a suspenseful, violent climax. Now, John Corey will have to share the spotlight with Jack Reacher.
The two characters are as different as night and day - Corey's wisecracking sarcasm contrasting sharply with the laconic Reacher - but both are memorable characters. Jan 23, Matt rated it liked it Shelves: audiobook. It all began with an overseas mission. Reacher is sent from Germany back to Washington to undertake a quick but all-important mission for the US Military.
Fears have arisen that acquisition plans for some of the newest and most powerful weapons technology is being leaked to enemy states. Reacher has been brought in to attend the presentations and try to weed out the individual who might be behind these leaks and have them brought to justice.

A great stand-alone short story by Reacher that does little to bridge any gaps left in the series regular's mind. Set in Washington in , Reacher is an up and coming MP with great sleuthing skills and an ability to rough up anyone who gets in his way.

With just the right amount of acerbic wit, Reacher pinpoints the culprit in the nick of time and ensures the authorities can handle the rest. Kudos, Mr. Child for a decent short story before I return to some of the heavier reading you have put before me in the Reacher series. Aha, a Jack Reacher book!
Oh no, a short story with only few pages! Aha, it's a Jack Reacher book! If you are a lover of the Jack Reacher series by Lee Child, then these are the kind of thoughts that would go through your mind whenever you come across one of those short tales Child has written. Because you can never really get enough of Reacher, can you? Deep Down is a "guilty pleasure" read, one of those books that moves at a quick pace, raises the i Aha, a Jack Reacher book! Deep Down is a "guilty pleasure" read, one of those books that moves at a quick pace, raises the iconic status of your hero further, and makes you eager to get the latest regular-sized novel soon.
Deep Down gives a glimpse of Reacher during his army days, a time when he was younger but not much different. Quick with his thoughts, quick with his feet, the same old Reacher for you! When he is asked to go undercover to uncover in super-quick time a conspiracy related to the supply of arms to the army, Reacher seems to have the odds against him. It doesn't take much time for him though to shift them to his side, displaying once again the ice-cold style of deduction and action which he has kept intact in his post-army days.
A lovely quick read this one, which would be more enjoyed by the Reacher fans! Aug 23, Emily rated it liked it. Another dive into Reacher's distant past as a young MP in the s. This novella shows that Reacher had already patented head-butting and elbow throwing as ways to take the bad guys out, and his incredible powers of deductive reasoning.
It was a quick read, and I always manage to enjoy Reacher, but I much prefer his post-MP days as a free agent, wandering around and calling all the shots himself. I actually enjoyed the two chapter preview of book 17 Another dive into Reacher's distant past as a young MP in the s. I actually enjoyed the two chapter preview of book 17 A Wanted Man at the back of this e-book better than the novella itself.
That one picks up right where book 15 Worth Dying For let off before two blasts from the past. Looking forward to getting back to Reacher's quest to reach Virginia! May 02, Holly rated it it was ok. I love Lee Childs, don't get me wrong, I'm a huge fan of his work.
Jack Reacher is one of my top 10 favorite characters of all time! However, this short story was just not for me. I grab the audio version so I could listen to it on a road trip, and let me just say I honestly couldn't get into the story, even though it was about 2 hours long. I remember thinking to myself that I wasn't for sure if Lee Child actually wrote this book.
So if you have this book that's awesome, if not please just skip I love Lee Childs, don't get me wrong, I'm a huge fan of his work. So if you have this book that's awesome, if not please just skip it, you won't miss anything. Aug 20, Linda rated it liked it Shelves: read , library-audio-books-ebooks. There are classified talks going on in Washington regarding plans for a new, state of the art sniper rifle. Unfortunately there are leaks to the plans of the rifle.
Jack Reacher is brought in under cover to try to suss out the culprit. There are four women, any one of which could be "it". An interesting, shorter story.
