Jack Reacher. Hero. Loner. Soldier. Soldierâ€™s son. An elite
military cop, he was one of the armyâ€™s brightest stars. But
in every copâ€™s life there is a turning point. One case. One
messy, tangled case that can shatter a career. Turn a lawman
into a renegade. And make him question words like honor,
valor, and duty. For Jack Reacher, this is that
New Yearâ€™s Day, 1990. The Berlin Wall is coming
down. The world is changing. And in a North Carolina
â€śhot-sheetsâ€ť motel, a two-star general is found dead. His
briefcase is missing. Nobody knows what was in it. Within
minutes Jack Reacher has his orders: Control the situation.
But this situation canâ€™t be controlled. Within hours the
generalâ€™s wife is murdered hundreds of miles away. Then the
dominoes really start to fall.
Two Special Forces
soldiersâ€”the toughest of the toughâ€”are taken down, one at a
time. Top military commanders are moved from place to place
in a bizarre game of chess. And somewhere inside the vast
worldwide fortress that is the U.S. Army, Jack Reacherâ€”an
ordinarily untouchable investigator for the 110th Special
Unitâ€”is being set up as a fall guy with the worst enemies a
man can have.
But Reacher wonâ€™t quit. Heâ€™s fighting a
new kind of war. And heâ€™s taking a young female lieutenant
with him on a deadly hunt that leads them from the ragged
edges of a rural army post to the winding streets of Paris
to a confrontation with an enemy he didnâ€™t know he had. With
his French-born mother dyingâ€”and divulging to her son one
last, stunning secretâ€”Reacher is forced to question
everything he once believedâ€¦about his family, his career,
his loyaltiesâ€”and himself. Because this soldierâ€™s son is on
his way into the darkness, where he finds a tangled drama of
desperate desires and violent deathâ€”and a conspiracy more
chilling, ingenious, and treacherous than anyone could have
