“High-powered, intricately wrought suspense.”—Janet Maslin, The New York Times
“Hold on tight. . . . This novel will give you whiplash as you rabidly turn pages. . . . May be [Lee Child’s] best.”—USA Today
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. And if you think Reacher isn’t going to get involved . . . then you don’t know Jack.
Susan Mark, the fifth passenger, had a big secret, and her plain little life was being watched in Washington, and California, and Afghanistan—by dozens of people with one thing in common: They’re all lying to Reacher. A little. A lot. Or just enough to get him killed. A race has begun through the streets of Manhattan, a maze crowded with violent, skilled soldiers on all sides of a shadow war. For Jack Reacher, a man who trusts no one and likes it that way, the finish line comes when you finally get face-to-face and look your worst enemy in the eye.
BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Lee Child's A Wanted Man.

“Propulsive . . . [Child is] an expert at ratcheting up tension.”—Los Angeles Times
“A top-notch thriller.”—Booklist (starred review)
“Edgy . . . thoroughly engrossing.”—The Miami Herald

    In this book, Reacher really takes care of business. Brutal and efficient.
  • Good but not great

    By TigersJC86
    I think this story started off real slow and had little to no action until about halfway through. The end battle was one of the more ferocious you’ll read in any book and certainly gave the book the ending it deserved
  • Amazing

    By Enxymious
    Any militant minded person will greatly appreciate Child’s ability to paint the scene with military-like attention to detail. Reacher is a military man and the details bring you completely in his mind and able to see the world from his point of view.
  • Slow climb up but great ride down!

    By Ratchet rat
    Hard to put down once I got into it. Dragged on at the beginning then picked up momentum. Likable characters and interesting turns.
  • Total package

    By Ole DB
    Of all the Reacher series I’ve read, this one was the my favorite.
  • Disappointed

    By dom picc
    A little too much detail, I thought it would never end. Too much violence! Just not my kind of book!
  • Gone Tomorrow

    By boots saddle
    Overly detailed and complex. Stuck it out for 300 pages and gave up. I have read a number of Reacher yarns and this one flunked the test. Not surprised it was so cheap, but save your ,money.
  • Excellent

    I have had some issues with a few other Reacher books. Couldn’t put this one down, although Child’s obsession with detail can get pretty anal.
