A soldier is found dead in a sleazy motel.
Jack Reacher is the officer on duty. The soldier turns out to be a two-star general.
Then Reacher finds the battered body of the general’s wife.
This stomach-churning thriller turns back the clock. Here is a young Reacher, in dogtags, before he became a footloose drifter. A Reacher who still believes in the service. A Reacher who imposes army discipline and seeks justice.
Even if it’s only according to his own moral code.
"Packs a Dirty Harry wallop…Lean, dynamic storytelling"
"An unforgettable hero…may be the best Reacher book yet."
