Jack Reacher has no place to go and all the time in the world to get there, so a remote railroad stop on the prairie with the curious name of Mother's Rest seems perfect for an aimless one-day stopover.
He expects to find a lonely pioneer tombstone in a sea of nearly ripe wheat...but instead there is a woman waiting for a missing colleague, a cryptic note about 200 deaths, and a small town full of silent, watchful people. Reacher's one-day stopover becomes an open-ended quest...into the heart of darkness.
Prepare to be nailed to your seat by another hair-raising, heart-pounding adventure from the master of the thriller genre!

How I enjoyed the earlier, full lenght, books by Mr. Child. Jack Reacher roamed and rambled, his musings on the life he lead and the lives he saw around him as satisfying a read a visiting with wise old great uncke at a family reunion. In this short book, I did like the story, shocked at the ending, in fact, but yhe overall read left me feeling I'd rented the Cliff Notes.
"Fast and Gripping"
A true Lee Child. thriller. narrated well by Kerry Shale.. could have been longer.. didn't want it to end in just 4 hours..
