Jack Reacher didn't expect to stumble onto a kidnapping today. He didn't expect to stumble onto any kidnapping on any day, really...but once again, trouble seems to have a way of finding Jack when he least expects it. The problem is, he's short on cash, and in addition to that, he's been kidnapped as well. The pair have to wait until Holly's coworkers can piece together their disappearance...but time might be running out.
Eventually, though, they manage to escape, only to be run up against the 100-strong Montana militia, who want Reacher's blood. The tides start to turn as infighting breaks out among the group, culminating in the horrible death of one of the operatives by a bloodthirsty megalomaniac known as Beau Borken.
The days that follow are tough and unyielding, as the pair try to find their way back home, only for Reacher to be quickly caught up in the kidnapping--this time as a suspect, rather than a victim. Will he be able to prove his innocence in time?
