Two lonely towns in Colorado: Hope and Despair. Between
them, twelve miles of empty road. Jack Reacher never turns
back. It's not in his nature. All he wants is a cup of
coffee. What he gets is big trouble. So in Lee Childâ€™s
electrifying new novel, Reacherâ€”a man with no fear, no
illusions, and nothing to loseâ€”goes to war against a town
that not only wants him gone, it wants him dead.
It wasnâ€™t the welcome Reacher expected. He was just
passing through, minding his own business. But within
minutes of his arrival a deputy is in the hospital and
Reacher is back in Hope, setting up a base of operations
against Despair, where a huge, seething walled-off
industrial site does something nobody is supposed to
see . . . where a small plane takes off every night and
returns seven hours later . . . where a garrison of well-
trained and well-armed military copsâ€”the kind of soldiers
Reacher once commandedâ€”waits and watches . . . where above
all two young men have disappeared and two frightened
young women wait and hope for their return.
Joining forces with a beautiful cop who runs Hope with a
cool hand, Reacher goes up against Despairâ€”against the
deputies who try to break him and the rich man who tries
to scare himâ€”and starts to crack open the secrets, starts
to expose the terrifying connection to a distant war
thatâ€™s killing Americans by the thousand.
Now, between a town and the man who owns it, between
Reacher and his conscience, something has to give. And
Reacher never gives an inch.
