Looking for a lift through the vast empty landscape. A woman stops, and offers a ride. She is young, rich and beautiful.
But her husband’s in jail. When he comes out, he’s going to kill her.
Her family’s hostile, she can’t trust the cops, and the lawyers won’t help. She is entangled in a web of lies and prejudice, hatred and murder.
Jack Reacher never could resist a lady in distress.
“Reacher is a hero in the old Wild West style: a fearless and capable loner, who lives by his own set of morals and is proud never to have killed a man who didn’t deserve it…The author is in complete control of his complicated plot and has produced another real pageturner” Sunday Telegraph

“If you like thrillers of the bang-wallop variety, with a nice bit of plotting thrown in, this is the one for you” Irish Times
