#1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child returns with a gripping new powerhouse thriller featuring Jack Reacher, "one of this century's most original, tantalizing pop-fiction heroes" (The Washington Post).

Reacher takes a stroll through a small Wisconsin town and sees a class ring in a pawn shop window: West Point 2005. A tough year to graduate: Iraq, then Afghanistan. The ring is tiny, for a woman, and it has her initials engraved on the inside. Reacher wonders what unlucky circumstance made her give up something she earned over four hard years. He decides to find out. And find the woman. And return her ring. Why not?

So begins a harrowing journey that takes Reacher through the upper Midwest, from a lowlife bar on the sad side of small town to a dirt-blown crossroads in the middle of nowhere, encountering bikers, cops, crooks, muscle, and a missing persons PI who wears a suit and a tie in the Wyoming wilderness.

The deeper Reacher digs, and the more he learns, the more dangerous the terrain becomes. Turns out the ring was just a small link in a far darker chain. Powerful forces are guarding a vast criminal enterprise. Some lines should never be crossed. But then, neither should Reacher.

    Another great read Child never fails to deliver,

    At first the book was hard to get into with the intro to all the characters but, once it got going it grabbed you hook line and sinker. Though the ending was lame; like the left it to be continued. Sweetness


    The story had a great plot that was somewhat expected but there were parts that were totally unexpected and a delight in twists and turns. The depth of knowledge used by the author to support the story is refreshing. Could have spent another chapter closing the story out as it seemed to have been missing something for all characters. another notch in the series of great reads overall but narrator of the audio book does not do much justice for the book, story or the writer.

    Very boring, could not finish it, narrator did not speak clearly.

    As a long-time fan of Jack Reacher, hard for me to not say it was super great, but it was not Lee Child's best. I think it could have been shorter and frankly, there are just too many books about the current opioid crisis. Using veterans was a unique twist, and Reacher is always entertaining; but, three of the last three books I have read have had this issue running through them.

    This is a terrible move. Bored out of my mind it. It dragged on without ever truly becoming engaging. I could not finish it, it was that bad. I like the Jack Reacher but this book should have never been written.

  • Ted B

    Fast paced.
