Synopsis

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Everything starts somewhere. For elite military cop Jack Reacher, that somewhere was Carter Crossing, Mississippi, way back in 1997.
 
A lonely railroad track. A crime scene. A cover-up. A young woman is dead, and solid evidence points to a soldier at a nearby military base. But that soldier has powerful friends in Washington.
 
Reacher is ordered undercover to find out everything he can and then to vanish. But when he gets to Carter Crossing, Reacher meets local sheriff Elizabeth Deveraux, who has a thirst for justice and an appetite for secrets. Uncertain they can trust each other, they reluctantly join forces. Finding unexpected layers to the case, Reacher works to uncover the truth, while others try to bury it forever. The conspiracy threatens to shatter his faith in his mission—and turn him into a man to be feared.

Don’t miss Lee Child’s short story “Second Son” and a sneak peek of his new novel, A Wanted Man, in the back of the book.

Typical good read from Child. Least the last few chapter slowly to digest how the mystery is solved.

Reacher cuts through the bullshit and delivers results in his usual confrontational and no nonsense manner.

I like the unexpected routes that Mr. Childs utilizes with such excellence, as he guides the reader through the story. Until the very end, a number of possibilities and outcomes are in play. Jack Reacher, no matter how much is learned about him, is just a regular guy with superhuman abilities. I have learned things I never knew before through his reflections, which are both personal and practical to Jack. Looking forward to another and another and another ...
