#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Includes Lee Child’s short story “Not a Drill” and an excerpt from Make Me!

“The indomitable Reacher burns up the pages.”—USA Today

 
Four people in a car, hoping to make Chicago by morning. One man driving, another telling stories that don’t add up. A woman in the back, silent and worried. And a hitchhiker with a broken nose. An hour behind them, the FBI descends on an old pumping station where a man was stabbed to death—the knife work professional, the killers nowhere to be seen.
 
All Jack Reacher wanted was a ride to Virginia. All he did was stick out his thumb. But he soon discovers he has hitched more than a ride. He has tied himself to a massive conspiracy, in which nothing is what it seems, and nobody is telling the truth.
 
“Furious action . . . [Lee] Child keeps the pacing swift and the surprises rolling. . . . [A] feverishly thrilling series.”—The Miami Herald
 
“Smart, breathless . . . [with] one of the best female characters in the whole Reacher series.”—The New York Times
 
“Subtle and nuanced [with] seductive writing and irresistible plot twists.”—Newsweek

Another terrific book in the Jack Reacher series by Lee Child. Reacher helps take down a Syrian terrorist group with the FBI. An excellent read. Read full review

User Review  - arcona - LibraryThing

Not my favourite Jack Reacher novel. Lots of FBI, CIA, terrorism, counter terrorism, etc. A bit longer and more repetitive than it needed to be. Still found it hard to put down. Read full review
