    Synopsis

    Two small towns in Colorado: Hope and Despair. Between them, nothing but twelve miles of empty road.Jack Reacher can't find a ride, so he walks. All he wants is a cup of coffee. What he gets are four redneck deputies who want to run him out of town.Mistake. They're picking on the wrong guy. Jack Reacher is a big man, and he's in shape. No job, no address, no baggage. Nothing, except bloody-minded curiosity.What is the secret the locals seem so keen to hide? A hard man is good to find. Ex-military cop Reacher is today's most addictive hero.Now he pulls on a tiny loose thread, to unravel conspiracies that expose the most shocking truths. Because, after all, Jack Reacher has nothing to lose."Follows in the great Philip Marlowe pulp tradition,nuanced with a dash of Rambo and Bruce Willis...Reacher is a moody, modern outsider figure, one of the great antiheroes...a liberal intellectual with machismo, and arms the size of Popeye's." Independent"Classic Child...brilliantly paced ... his tough-but-fair creation, Jack Reacher, both a man's man and a ladies' man, proves once again that he's also his own man. And no one is going to get in his way."  Mirror"Slots a series of bone-crunching brawls into a surprisingly sinuous and zeitgeisty plot...delivers emotional depth, and Reacher's bare-knuckle sleuthing certainly keeps the adrenalin up."  Financial Times"A high-testosterone adventure with a thoughtful nod to what is going on in Iraq...a page turner. Thrilling."  Observer
