In a latest work by the Anthony-winning author of the best-selling
Always living on the fringe, Lee Child's long-enthralling hero, military police officer Jack Reacher (now starring in his 14th thriller), likes to travel on the cheap. So hopping onto a tour bus seems like a good way to get where he's going. But when the South Dakota winter weather proves more than the bus can handle, he ends up stranded in a small town. Good thing, too, because the local police waste no time in getting Reacher involved in protecting a key witness in a drug case that links this rural enclave to a ****** production racket and to a menacing Mexican drug lord. Child keeps things moving on a tight schedule in this story, which he structures around a 61-hour countdown that is initiated with the book's opening scenario. Something very bad is on its way, but Child keeps readers guessing and second guessing to figure out exactly what is in store.
