It's 1996, and Reacher is still in the army. In the morning they give him a medal, and in the afternoon they send him back to school. That night he's off the grid. Out of sight, out of mind. Two other men are in the classroom - an FBI agent and a CIA analyst. Each is a first-rate operator, each is fresh off a big win, and each is wondering what the hell they are doing there. Then they find out: A jihadist sleeper cell in Hamburg, Germany, has received an unexpected visitor - a Saudi courier seeking safe haven while waiting to rendezvous with persons unknown.

  • Below average for the Reacher series. Not fun.

When dairy farmer Stella Crown's friend, veterinarian Carla Beaumont, is carjacked, it's just the first in a rash of vicious attacks on the town's leading businesswomen. A truck driver, a minister, and a personal trainer also become victims of vandalism and theft. But the community is shaken to the core when the kindhearted Dr. Peterson is found murdered in her office. As Stella searches for a connection among the victims, she finds much that doesn't seem right in her usually quiet town.
