Comments  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Bestseller Child's surprise-filled 17th Jack Reacher novel (after 2011's The Affair) takes the ex-military policeman on a wild road ride that builds to a terrific slam-bang climax. While hitchhiking one winter night in Nebraska with a broken nose that makes him look more than usually disreputable, Reacher is picked up by two men and a woman wearing identical cheap blue shirts. The fun begins when clues suggest that the men in the car are responsible for the brutal murder of another man at an abandoned pump station. The role of the woman in the car remains unclear. Sheriff Victor Goodman is quick to call the FBI, which arrives in the person of Julia Sorenson, only the first of many agencies and agents heard from. While the erratic trip through America's heartland doesn't always follow a logical path, Reacher displays his acuity, patience, endurance, and military skills in the exhilarating fashion series fans have come to expect.

From Library Journal:

In Child's 17th Jack Reacher thriller, which picks up the action from Worth Dying For (after a detour in the prequel The Affair) our loner hero is hitchhiking east to Virginia. Unsurprisingly for series readers, Jack's ride turns out to be not just a ride, but a car the state police, the FBI and the CIA are seeking, with occupants who are involved in a cold-blooded killing. To survive, Jack must use his wits more than ever. His statistical knowledge, analytical thinking, and insight into human behavior help him dig deep into a multilayered puzzle well before the need for an all-out physical confrontation builds to a heart-racing climax. VERDICT Fans will devour this volume quickly and long for the next Reacher novel. Readers who enjoy character-driven thrillers such as Robert Ludlum's Jason Bourne books will be intrigued by this series. [See Prepub Alert, 3/12/12; Jack Reacher, the film adaptation of Child's first novel, One Shot, starring Tom Cruise, will be released Dec. 21, 2012-Ed.]-Susan Carr, Edwardsville P.L., IL (c) Copyright 2012.
