Publisher's Summary

New Year's Day, 1990. The Berlin Wall is coming down. Soon America won't have any enemies left to fight. The army is under pressure to downsize. Jack Reacher is the duty military police officer on a base in North Carolina when he takes a call reporting a dead soldier. The body was found in a sleazy motel used by local hookers. Reacher tells the local cop to handle it, it sounds like the guy just had a heart attack. But the dead man turns out to have been a two-star general on a secret mission. And then, many miles away, when Reacher goes to the general's house to break the sad news, he finds a battered corpse: the general's wife. Lee Child's new stomach-churning, palm-sweating thriller turns back the clock to Jack Reacher's army days. For the first time we meet a younger Reacher, a Reacher not yet disillusioned with military life. A Reacher with family. A Reacher in dogtags and starched uniform who imposes army discipline, if only in his own pragmatic way.A Reacher as far from the no-credit card, no-last-known-address drifter of the previous eight novels as is possible to imagine.

Reacher at his best

I love Jack Reacher and will read every book written with him as the character. This book tells you how it all started and you can feel Reacher's frustration with the "military system" and clarifies why he eventually wanted out. Great plot and good reading. Reacher is one of the most interesting characters I've seen in any novel.
