It is said that a Jack Reacher novel is bought every four seconds somewhere in the world....
Lee Child's genius has been to create a tough hero that men will envy and women will love.
After an epic and interrupted journey from the snows of South Dakota, Jack Reacher has finally arrived in Virginia.
Their destination: a sturdy stone building a short bus ride from Washington D.C., the headquarters of their old unit, the 110th PM.
It was the closest thing to home he ever had.
He wants to meet the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner.
She liked his voice on the phone.
But the officer sitting behind Reacher's old desk is not a woman.
Why isn't Susan Turner there?
What Reacher doesn't expect is what comes next.
He himself is in big trouble, accused of a sixteen-year-old murder.
And he certainly does not expect to hear these words:
You're back in the army, Major.
And your ass is mine. Will he regret coming back?
Or will someone else do it?
