receiving a rude welcome from the local military brats, Reacher and his older
brother, Joe, intend to teach them a lesson they won’t forget. But it’s soon
clear that there’s more at stake than pride. When his family’s future appears
to come crumbling down, it’s the youngest Reacher who rises to the occasion
with all the decisive cunning and bravura that will one day be his deadly
trademark. Download and start listening now!
