"The indomitable Reacher burns up the pages."-USA Today Four people in a car, hoping to make Chicago by morning. One man driving, another telling stories that don't add up. A woman in the back, silent and worried. And a hitchhiker with a broken nose. An hour behind them, the FBI descends on an old pumping station where a man was stabbed to death-the knife work professional, the killers nowhere to be seen. All Jack Reacher wanted was a ride to Virginia. All he did was stick out his thumb. But he soon discovers he has hitched more than a ride. He has tied himself to a massive conspiracy, in which nothing is what it seems, and nobody is telling the truth. "Furious action . . .

[with] one of the best female characters in the whole Reacher series."-The New York Times "Subtle and nuanced [with] seductive writing and irresistible plot twists."-Newsweek Don't miss Lee Child's short story "Deep Down" and a sneak peek of his new novel, Never Go Back, in the back of the book.

OK, it was a Reacher book, so I could not read it without thinking of 16 other Reacher book that I have read, which made it OK, just OK, not great, unlike many others of the series. Hoping for a better effort next time.
