New York City. Two in the morning. A subway car heading uptown. Jack Reacher, plus five other passengers. Four are okay. The fifth isn’t.

In the next few tense seconds, Reacher will make a choice—and trigger an electrifying chain of events in this gritty, gripping masterwork of suspense by #1 New York Times bestseller Lee Child.

Susan Mark was the fifth passenger. She had a lonely heart, an estranged son, and a big secret. Reacher, working with a woman cop and a host of shadowy feds, wants to know just how big a hole Susan Mark was in, how many lives had already been twisted before hers, and what danger is looming around him now.

Arace has begun through the streets of Manhattan in a maze crowded with violent—skilled soldiers on all sides of a shadow war. Susan Mark’s plain little life was critical to dozens of others in Washington, California, Afghanistan—from a former Delta Force operator now running for the US Senate, to a beautiful young woman with a fantastic story to tell, to a host of others. Every person has one thing in common: They’re all lying to Reacher. A little. A lot. Or maybe just enough to get him killed.

In a novel that slams through one hairpin surprise after another, Lee Child unleashes a thriller that spans three decades and gnaws at the heart of America. For Jack Reacher, it’s a mystery with only one answer—the kind that comes when you finally look your worst enemy in the eye.

    " This book is made to be a movie ! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Coki | 2/10/2014

    " Reacher brushes much closer to the real world as he battles the NYPD, FBI, DOD, and Congress. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne Hartman | 2/7/2014

    " I LOVE JACK Reacher and cannot WAIT for the next one. This one was so good...I never expected the OBL connection...Jack is so smart ;-) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Larry Phillips | 2/6/2014

    " What can I way but predictable. Jack Reacher does it again. Never backing down. Always bucking the odds AND "the man". Super hero extraordinaire who never misses, with any kind of lethal killing device. Reminds me of Raymond Chandler's "Philip Marlowe". Even though predictable, I felt I learned a few things (if they are really factual): 33 million people in Canada, the 10 or 11 things to look for to identify a suicide bomber, subway surfing, etc. I felI look forward to Lee Childs' next book with anticipation! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Glennie | 1/23/2014

    " Loved this excellent adventure in Manhattan. The 6 train, my mode of transport for the 5 years that I lived there, was featured prominently. I could picture all the places he wrote about. Reacher was up against some seriously scary people this time! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Icicle4 | 1/23/2014

    " This was good, but I think I'm cooling just a bit on Lee Child. I'm having a few issues with believability. Reacher keeps finding and getting found by people in New York City. If someone goes missing he does his special mumbo jumbo and devines where they are and I'm having a ittle trouble buying it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fred Nelson | 1/21/2014

    " This was a great book and brings me back to the earlier "Reacher" days. I read Bad Luck & Trouble after this and what a wow factor it was. "

    " I am a fan of the Reacher series but I hate when so much detail goes into a book and then the author ends it in 4 sentences. Great book till end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz Morrison | 12/23/2011

    " Jack Reacher is his cool calm self except for kicking ass across the US. Plot could be real-to-life situation with friendly U.S. relations in Afghanistan and with Bin Laden. Usual cover-up by US government on dirty politics that affect innocent life's of the public do-gooders. Highly Recommend! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Merle Allwood | 7/31/2011

    " Good books. I read many of the J. Reacher books but they tend to beg the imagination too much for my liking. The ending was interesting in this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lucy Bennett | 7/3/2011

    " One of my favourites. I like that it is set in New York and that it is written in the first person. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 JC | 6/30/2011

    " This book started out really well again but got quite complicated as it move along and didn't really make it as good as it could have been for me. Honestly, I thought I was going to really love this book, but it was only a decent read in the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ellen | 5/22/2011

    " I liked it - as usual his deductive reasoning is always better than mine - but I mean he has the skills.
    However they killed one or two people that I wish they hadn't. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fredrick | 5/21/2011

    " Jack Reacher is not your typical homeless person. As a former military police officer he recognizes the tell tail sign of a potential suicide bomber. But when the suspected bomber shoots herself while talking to him, he becomes involved in trying to find out why. The action is almost non-stop. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Russell | 5/14/2011

    " Probably the best Jack Reacher yet. Compelling stuff. "
