Read Scott Brick’s message to fans:
“Hi everyone, this is Scott Brick and…I kind of can’t believe I am saying these words out loud but with the retirement of Dick Hill, I was chosen to take over narrating the Jack Reacher series by Lee Child. I have been a fan of Lee’s writing for over a decade, since my best friend introduced me to the Reacher books, and I’ve been listening to the incredible Dick Hill recount his adventures to me ever since The Killing Floor. So the day they told me the news that I was taking over was easily one of the greatest of my career. I am hugely grateful to Dick Hill for the massive body of work he’s left behind, as well as for his support and blessing as I continue. And I don’t even know how to start thanking Lee Child and the great folks at Penguin Random House Audio for trusting me with this. Thank you for the faith you’re showing me in this. I’ll be showing up to the studio with just a duffel bag and a toothbrush. I can’t wait to get started.”
