Jack Reacher, adrift in the hellish heat of a Texas summer. He’s looking for a lift through the vast empty landscape.
A woman stops, and offers a ride.
She is young, rich and beautiful.
But her husband’s in jail.
When he comes out, he’s going to kill her.
She’s entangled in a web of lies and prejudice, hatred and murder.
Her family’s hostile, she can’t trust the cops, and the lawyers won’t help.
Can Jack Reacher say no to a woman in distress?
"The best mystery I have read this year: best written, best plotted, best in just about every way."
"Another real page-turner"
