'There's only one Jack Reacher. Accept no substitutes.' Mick Herron
March 1997. A woman has her throat cut behind a bar in Mississippi.
Just down the road is a big army base. Is the murderer a local guy - or is he a soldier?
Jack Reacher, still a major in the military police, is sent in undercover.
The county sheriff is a former U.S. Marine - and a stunningly beautiful woman. Her investigation is going nowhere. Is the Pentagon stonewalling her? Or is she trying not to find the killer?
Set just six months before the opening of Killing Floor, The Affair marks a turning point in Reacher's career.
If he does what the army wants, will he be able to live with himself? And if he doesn't, will the army be able to live with him?
Although the Jack Reacher novels can be read in any order, The Affair is 16th in the series.
And be sure not to miss Reacher's newest adventure, no.26, Better off Dead! ***OUT NOW***
Child's compelling 16th thriller featuring incorruptible vigilante Jack Reacher (after Worth Dying For) rewinds the clock to 1997 when Reacher was still a military cop and working on the case that led to his eventual break with the Army. Reacher must figure out whether the shocking murder of 27-year-old Janice May Chapman in Carter Crossing, Miss., has any connection with nearby Fort Kelham, where Army Rangers are trained. Reacher soon learns that two other women had their throats slit in the same way as Chapman, and the leading suspect is a Fort Kelham captain, whose father is a U.S. senator and diehard Army supporter. Reacher knows all too well the case has political trouble written all over it and he and his Army bosses quickly butt heads over how it should be handled. Readers expecting new insight or details into Reacher's background will be disappointed, but they'll find all the elements solid action, wry humor, smart dialogue that have made this series so popular.
