Ex military policeman Jack Reacher is enjoying the lazy anonymity of Key West when a stranger shows up asking for him. He's got a lot of questions. Reacher does too, especially after the guy turns up dead. The answers lead Reacher on a cold trail back to New York, to the tenuous confidence of an alluring woman, and the dangerous corners of his own past.
"Not only bang-on suspense but an insightful look into how humans work."--Houston Chronicle
"A stylish thriller as complex and disturbing as its hero."--Stephen White
"A tightly-drawn and swift thriller that gives new meaning to what a page-turner should be."--Michael Connelly
"Page for page, there's probably more fisticuffs in a Lee Child thriller than anywhere else."--Chicago Tribune
"When you put a good villain together with a great hero like Jack Reacher...the result is a thriller good to the last drop. (Child) does a great job of balancing good and evil, and certainly Hobie ranks up there with some of the most memorable villains."--The Orlando Sentinel
