A masterpiece of suspense from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child   Four people in a car, hoping to make Chicago by morning. One man driving, eyes on the road. Another man next to him, telling stories that don’t add up. A woman in the back, silent and worried. And next to her, a huge man with a broken nose, hitching a ride east to Virginia.   An hour behind them, a man lies stabbed to death in an old pumping station. He was seen going in with two others, but he never came out. He has been executed, the knife work professional, the killers vanished. Within minutes, the police are notified. Within hours, the FBI descends, laying claim to the victim without ever saying who he was or why he was there.   All 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 that makes him a threat—to both sides at once.   In Lee Child’s white-hot thriller, nothing is what it seems, and nobody is telling the truth. As the tension rises, the twists come fast and furious, keeping readers guessing and gasping until the explosive finale.   Praise for #1 bestselling author Lee Child and his Reacher series   “Child is a superb craftsman of suspense.”—Entertainment Weekly   “The truth about Reacher gets better and better.”—Janet Maslin, The New York Times   “Implausible, irresistible Reacher remains just about the best butt-kicker in thriller-lit.”—Kirkus Reviews   “Like his hero Jack Reacher, Lee Child seems to make no wrong steps.”—Associated Press   “Lee Child [is] the current poster-boy of American crime fiction.”—Los Angeles Times   “Indisputably the best escape artist in this escapist genre.”—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times   “Jack Reacher is much more like the heir to the Op and Marlowe than Spenser ever was.”—Esquire

“Child’s surprise-filled seventeenth Jack Reacher novel takes the ex-military policeman on a wild road ride that builds to a terrific slam-bang climax…Reacher displays his acuity, patience, endurance, and military skills in the exhilarating fashion series fans have come to expect.” Publishers Weekly
“Lucky listeners who are unfamiliar with previous Jack Reacher adventures by Lee Child and narrator Dick Hill are in for a treat. They will have the extra thrill of learning what Reacher is all about. To the uninitiated, Reacher may appear to be a villain who is picked up by two men and a woman while hitchhiking in the Midwest. But Reacher fans know he’s somehow involved in pursuing the greater good. Hill brings out the personalities of the men, who are killers, and the woman, a reluctant witness. His flawless performance builds tension as the listener wonders how Reacher will save the day. Hill gives his special twist to the characters, making them all a little edgier. A notable challenge, Reacher has a broken nose, which is reflected in his speech.” AudioFile
“Jack must use his wits more than ever. His statistical knowledge, analytical thinking, and insight into human behavior help him dig deep into a multilayered puzzle well before the need for an all-out physical confrontation builds to a heart-racing climax…Fans will devour this volume quickly and long for the next Reacher novel.” Library Journal
