Two lonely towns in Colorado: Hope and Despair. Between them, twelve miles of empty road. Jack Reacher never turns back. It’s not in his nature. All he wants is a cup of coffee. What he gets is big trouble. In Lee Child’s electrifying new novel, Reacher—a man with no fear, no illusions, and nothing to lose—goes to war against a town that not only wants him gone, it wants him dead.

It wasn’t the welcome Reacher expected. He was just passing through, minding his own business. But within minutes of his arrival a deputy is in the hospital and Reacher is back in Hope, setting up a base of operations against Despair, where a huge, seething walled-off industrial site does something nobody is supposed to see. A place where a small plane takes off every night and returns seven hours later. A place where a garrison of well-trained and well-armed military cops—the kind of soldiers Reacher once commanded—waits and watches. A place where, above all, two young men have disappeared and two frightened young women wait and hope for their return.

Joining forces with a beautiful cop who runs Hope with a cool hand, Reacher goes up against Despair—against the deputies who try to break him and the rich man who tries to scare him—and starts to crack open the secrets, exposing a terrifying connection to a distant war that’s killing Americans by the thousand.

Now, between a town and the man who owns it—and between Reacher and his conscience—something has to give. And Reacher never gives an inch.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aaron Gudmunson | 2/16/2014

    " Not nearly the best of the Reacher series, but still enjoyable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deb Mjaatvedt | 2/14/2014

    " I started out really enjoying this book, and quickly lost steam. It reminded me too much of the first Reacher novel, and I was disappointed by Reacher's behavior throughout, especially at the end. Not enough to make me stop reading the Reacher books, but not encouraging. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca Ard | 2/14/2014

    " Love the Jack Reacher series. They are such page turners. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Taylor Moore | 2/6/2014

    " Not really my favorite reacher. bcause it was longer than the other ones. it was pretty good though. And it gave me enough suspense "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Benjamin | 2/4/2014

    " Hooray, the hero is a strong silent type who's 'code' generally means finding hypocritical reasons to beat the shit out of people. There's also this weird thing where everyone else acts like an idiot but in carefully decipherable ways so the hero can put it all together like a jigsaw puzzle. Oh, and there's a strong and attractive female cop warning him to keep out of trouble. Will they or won't they? Will he leave town at the end to continue his drifter ways? Will every single bloody material object be described in a level of detail that you're basically reading a pornography of stuff? I suspect if you read any other Reacher book you could answer these questions. I will not be. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Somyajeet | 1/27/2014

    " Really not the best work of Lee Child. Must be a fill gap novel by the author or hurried over by the publisher to make the deadline. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greenolv | 1/23/2014

    " It ain't summer without the annual Reacher. I particularly enjoyed his kicking of six asses at once in this episode. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deb | 1/13/2014

    " First Jack Reacher thriller I have read and will probably look for others to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard Mayer | 1/13/2014

    " Typical Jack Reacher story where Jack is challenged by local cops and asked to move on as he is considered a vagrant. Jack of course doesn't, enlists the aid of a female cop, and discovers the real reason he isn't welcomed in this Colorado company town. Interesting story, full of action. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James Pool | 11/1/2013

    " This was the first Reacher novel I read.It was a few years ago and it hooked me. My aunt had recomended these as something to read while I was on the road. Since then I have read and listened to quite a few and this is still one of my favorites. Still can't see Tom Cruise as Jack though. Really? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim | 10/27/2013

    " My first Reacher novel. Actually my first Lee Child novel as well. Well paced with great characters. Child can get a bot over descriptive at times, but I know I'll be venturing into other installments of this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 10/27/2013

    " A bit disappointing in comparison to the previous Reacher novels. Slow starting and a bit convoluted for me. The last 4 chapters redeemed it somewhat, but definitely only merits a 3.5 in lieu of the normal 5 star rating I usually credit this series' books with. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leslie | 10/14/2013

    " Still enjoying this series - on to the Next One ! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe Zehnder | 8/11/2013

    " These novels are a guilty pleasure. No reasonable reality and I totally enjoy sucking them in. Jack Reacher makes dockers look sexy, or so he believes, and if he believes, it is so. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Huxley's Mom | 5/16/2013

    " Not up to the usual level of outrageous suspense and action. Hopefully the next one will live up to what I've come to expect from the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe O'c | 11/9/2012

    " Very Good; continuing character: Jack Reacher; Reacher ends up in Colorado between towns of Hope and Despair; in Despair he finds a religious zealot with a plot; not as good as the series usually is "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Natasha | 10/9/2012

    " Could only get half way thru. Can only suspend belief so much......... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Opa | 7/18/2012

    " I really like Child as an author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike | 7/9/2011

    " Another easy-but-enjoyable, unspectacular yet strangely page-turning read in the Jack Reacher series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samuel | 6/25/2011

    " Just an average book by Lee Child. Nothing special, but not bad either. A lot more sex than usual, which got annoying, but still, not bad. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 5/12/2011

    " As good as the other Jack Reacher series. Entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian | 5/8/2011

    " A bit disappointing compared to the other book I read by Lee Child. He tried to make this big conspiracy story, but didn't really hit the mark for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 4/29/2011

    " My favorite Reacher book so far. Good mystery and not too much graphic violence. "

    " We are listening to this book and it is okay but would be better with a different reader. Hard to get into the plot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marsha | 4/5/2011

    " This one had a more difficult subject, but still really good. All the Jack Reacher books are great. Quick easy reads with alot of action and a good story. Nothing to sink your teeth in, just pure entertainment. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mariella | 4/1/2011

    " Only 3 stars because it was not as good as his previous stories and it dragged on too long. Hopefully the next one is better! "
