Description

Loner Jack Reacher gets a lift from seductive Carmen Greer, but it comes with a few hitches: a dangerous husband, a small town with secrets, and a plan. Now Reacher's part of it, and before the sun sets, the ride could cost Jack and Carmen their lives.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 23, 2001 – Jack Reacher, the vagabond freelance lawman who never hesitates to stick his nose into private business, takes his lively act to Texas, embroiling himself in what starts as a messy domestic dispute before turning far more ominous. The rugged former army cop comes to the aid of Carmen Greer, who picks him up on the side of the road one morning outside Lubbock, then asks him to kill her abusive husband. Sloop Greer is getting out of prison in a few days, and Carmen fears he will start beating her again. Reacher declines, but agrees to protect Carmen, hiring on as a cowhand at the couple's remote ranch in Echo County, Tex., far outside Pecos. Within hours of Sloop's return from prison, where he was serving time for tax evasion, violence strikes. But the victim isn't Carmen; it's Sloop. He's found shot dead, and Carmen is arrested. End of story? Hardly. Most wandering heroes would move on at this point, but not Reacher. He begins taking a hard look at both Carmen and Sloop's past, as well as local history. What he finds—ugly secrets, human suffering, political evil—is repulsive to a man who's been around as many blocks as Reacher. Child (Running Blind; Tripwire) has developed a fine franchise with Reacher, who comes from the Robin Hood mold, but has enough personal quirks and moments of unusual insight to separate him from the pack. Set in a literally and figuratively smoldering landscape, this is a clean, infectious story that taps deeply into two troubling human emotions—the psychology of abuse and the desire for retribution.

Customer Reviews

Awesome!!!!!!

I've read this entire series more than once, absolutely brilliant!!!!!!! Must read, do yourself a favor!!!!

A gripping book from beginning to end

Yet another great read from Lee Child. I was hooked from the very beginning, and like other Jack Reacher books, I find that I just can't put them down. This was a fast reading book with a few twists and turns along the way, which really made it great. Like a true masterpiece, this books keeps you guessing about Carmen Greer until the very end. Like other Reacher books, you just can't help but put yourself in Reacher's shoes and see the world through his eyes. He certainly is my favorite character.

I hope all of the Lee Child books find their way onto the iPad as this is my new favorite medium for reading!

Mostly entertaining

You kind of want the first half of the book to fast forward. Second half is much better. Gets a little preachy in the middle and leaves no grey area as to which side of immigration he is on. Dialogue presented as a bit forced, especially during Reacher's monologues. Does well to lead you down one road, and then back down the other a coupe of times, until you're not quite sure which side you feel empathy for.
