Jack Reacher. Hero. Loner. Soldier. Soldier's son. An elite military cop, he was one of the army's brightest stars. But in every cop's life there is a turning point. One case. One messy, tangled case that can shatter a career. Turn a lawman into a renegade. And make him question words like honor, valor, and duty. For Jack Reacher, this is that case.

New Year's Day, 1990. The Berlin Wall is coming down. The world is changing. And in a North Carolina hot-sheets motel, a two-star general is found dead. His briefcase is missing. Nobody knows what was in it. Within minutes Jack Reacher has his orders: Control the situation. But this situation can't be controlled. Within hours the general's wife is murdered hundreds of miles away. Then the dominoes really start to fall.

Two Special Forces soldiers - the toughest of the tough - are taken down, one at a time. Top military commanders are moved from place to place in a bizarre game of chess. And somewhere inside the vast worldwide fortress that is the U.S. Army, Jack Reacher - an ordinarily untouchable investigator for the 110th Special Unit - is being set up as a fall guy with the worst enemies a man can have.

But Reacher won't quit. He's fighting a new kind of war. And he's taking a young female lieutenant with him on a deadly hunt that leads them from the ragged edges of a rural army post to the winding streets of Paris to a confrontation with an enemy he didn't know he had. With his French-born mother dying - and divulging to her son one last, stunning secret - Reacher is forced to question everything he once believed...about his family, his career, his loyalties - and himself. Because this soldier's son is on his way into the darkness, where he finds a tangled drama of desperate desires and violent death - and a conspiracy more chilling, ingenious, and treacherous than anyone could have guessed.

    " This is a fascinating account of a case that defined Reacher's military career. Once again, he manages to unspool interesting threads in the days when the Berlin Wall was coming down and the Cold War was ending. This meant a likely shift in the composition of the army and Reacher finds himself in the middle of that transition. Child's book takes advantage of using a reflective lens to foreshadow the geopolitical future as we know it now. Overall, it's another winner. "

    " This was on the bookshelf in my vacation rental, and since everyone seems to like Lee Child, I picked it up. Great read, and I haven't read any others in the series. I'm definitely going back to read the others. Good suspense and mystery; great military details for the novice. "

    " One of my favorites in the series so far. This is the book that explains how and why Jack Reacher will leave his career as a military police. It takes place while Reacher is still an MP. He gets an emergency transfer to a new base and ends up investigating the death of a general, his wife and a Delta solider. There is a bigger coverup going on but it is complex and interesting. Also nice to meet Jack's brother Joe while he is alive and working for the Treasury department. An added bonus for me were the scenes in Paris. "
