Publisher's Summary

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.

Don't miss any of Jack Reacher's adventures.

    "Good, but a bit slow at times ."

    Too much empty listening
    I said nothing
    She said nothing
    Good ending
    I'll read the next one to see if this is a series I'll stick with

    "An unexpected Reacher throw-back"

    Not a storyline/timeline I expected after experiencing prior books written Reacher's post military life; this story is about murder, deceit, politics and power while Reacher is a military police officer.

    "It's a great book!"

    Moving and enrapturing. But don't cheat yourself by reading this one first. Start with the first one and work your way to this excellent book. But trust me all the other ones are excellent as well.

    "Excellent book"

    First Jack Reacher book for me. Just purchased the first book in the series. Excellent story and I really like the voice of the narrator, Dick Hill.

    "Good Book!"

    One of the better "Reacher" books. They are all good, but I really enjoyed this one. I would recommend it to anyone.

    "Enemy - good all around"

    Probably the best Reacher novel I've "read". Good to meet two other Reachers. Plot has good twists (usually I don't guess right but this time I did - but not every nuance). We see into Reacher's soul more in this book. My hometown, Columbia, SC, was part of the plot - not a common occurrence! Always love Dick Hill - his voice is the perfect Reacher.

    "Enjoyed immensely!"

    Lee Child never disappoints and this is no exception. I enjoyed getting background on the Reacher character that I never knew before. Only negative comment I have is I thought if I heard just one more "I said nothing', I'd scream. Can't even guess how many times that phrase was used.

    "A solid addition to the series"

    I have been listening to the Jack Reacher in book release order and have been impressed overall. We have seen a lot of what Reacher can do outside the arm, but this book gives a nice change of pace by providing us with a glimpse into a particularly defining period of Reacher's enlisted life.
    Overall a great book and on par with the best in this series.
