              #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - Family secrets come back to haunt Jack Reacher in this electrifying thriller from a superb craftsman of suspense (Entertainment Weekly). Jack Reacher hits the pavement and sticks out his thumb. He plans to follow the sun on an epic trip across Ameri...ca, from Maine to California. He doesn't get far. On a country road deep in the New England woods, he sees a sign to a place he has never been: the town where his father was born. He thinks, What's one extra day? He takes the detour.

Then Reacher makes a shocking discovery: The present can be tough, but the past can be tense . . . and deadly.

Reacher is a man for whom the phrase moral compass was invented: His code determines his direction. . . . You need Jack Reacher. --The Atlantic Superb . . . Child neatly interweaves multiple narratives, ratchets up the suspense (the reveal of the motel plot is delicious), and delivers a powerful, satisfying denouement. Fans will enjoy learning more of this enduring character's roots, and Child's spare prose continues to set a very high bar. --Publishers Weekly (boxed and starred review) Another first-class entry in a series that cont
