THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING JACK REACHER SERIES THAT INSPIRED TWO MAJOR MOTION PICTURES AND THE UPCOMING STREAMING SERIES REACHER
A heart-racing page-turner that hits the ground running and then accelerates all the way to a colossal showdown
“Jack Reacher is the coolest continuing series character now on offer.”—Stephen King, in Entertainment Weekly
There’s deadly trouble in the corn country of Nebraska . . . and Jack Reacher walks right into it. First he falls foul of the Duncans, a local clan that has terrified an entire county into submission. But it’s the unsolved case of a missing child, already decades old, that Reacher can’t let go.
The Duncans want Reacher gone—and it’s not just past secrets they’re trying to hide. They’re awaiting a secret shipment that’s already late—and they have the kind of customers no one can afford to annoy. For as dangerous as the Duncans are, they’re just the bottom of a criminal food chain stretching halfway around the world.
For Reacher, it would have made much more sense to keep on going, to put some distance between himself and the hard-core trouble that’s bearing down on him. For Reacher, that was also impossible.
The characters in this book do not make logical decisions. I can't see why the people in this story are so cowed by the villians. It makes no sense. If the shipping services were withheld, then the farmer has every right to get another company to take their harvest to market (breach of contract on the shippers part). If these same people sent goons out to enforce their contract they would be met with the barrel of a gun on the front porch. These are farmers not yuppies hiding in their condo. Also just because two people from a criminal organization get killed it doesn't make them back out of a profitable enterprise. They're ruthless enough to engage in slavery and they just give up???
