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!

Even when Child's book isn't his best, it's still great. I'm never disappointed with the narrator, my real Reacher, who perfectly depicts the large, enigmatic protagonist. As usual, the antagonist were a bunch of dudes who didn't know when to leave well enough alone. The biggest question, does he ride off into the sunset alone or with a companion?
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..
