The bestselling novel featuring the “wonderfully epic hero”(People) who inspired the hit films Jack Reacher and Jack Reacher: Never Go Back.

All Reacher knows is that he didn’t kill anybody. At least not here. Not lately. But he doesn’t stand a chance of convincing anyone. Not in Margrave, Georgia. Not a chance in hell.
