Everything starts somewhere …

For elite military cop Jack Reacher, that somewhere was Carter Crossing, Mississippi, way back in 1997. A lonely railroad track. A crime scene. A cover-up.

A young woman is dead, and solid evidence points to a soldier at a nearby military base. But that soldier has powerful friends in Washington.

Reacher is ordered undercover—to find out everything he can, to control the local police, and then to vanish. Reacher is a good soldier. But when he gets to Carter Crossing, he finds layers no one saw coming, and the investigation spins out of control.

Local sheriff Elizabeth Deveraux has a thirst for justice—and an appetite for secrets. Uncertain they can trust one another, Reacher and Deveraux reluctantly join forces. Reacher works to uncover the truth, while others try to bury it forever. The conspiracy threatens to shatter his faith in his mission and turn him into a man to be feared.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Jim | 2/10/2014

    " Another outstanding Reacher adventure. How long do I have to wait for the next book? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jose | 2/7/2014

    " Like the previous books when the author goes back in the life of Reacher I enjoy the story a lot more... especially this one because it finally gives you the story of how and why he got out... and personally I finally got my answer about how he got the toothbrush and why he does not uses toothpaste. The actual story line was interesting also... although it could've use a few more surprises... but overall I enjoyed the book a lot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by T. | 2/7/2014

    " This is the fourth book I've read in this series. So far it was the best. You think you know who the bad guy is and then the author makes everyone a suspect. It kept me guessing and that made it interesting. On to the next book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Kelsey Burnette | 2/6/2014

    " Lee Child never disappoints. This one was particularly fun because you get to go back in time and see Reacher when he is still in the Army. I also enjoyed the short story included in this edition, which gives you a glimpse of Reacher as a child. "
