Two small towns in Colorado: Hope and Despair.
Between them, nothing but twelve miles of empty road.
Jack Reacher can’t find a ride, so he walks. All he wants is a cup of coffee.
What he gets is four hostile locals, a vagrancy charge and an order to move on.
What dark secrets are the locals so set to hide?
They’re picking on the wrong guy. Reacher is a big man, and he’s in shape.
He has no job, no address, no baggage. Nothing, except hard-headed curiosity.
And nothing to lose.
"Explosive and nearly impossible to put down."
"Classic Child…brilliantly paced…his tough-but fair creation Jack Reacher, both a man’s man and a ladies’ man"
