Two small towns in the middle of nowhere: Hope and Despair. Between them, nothing but twelve miles of empty road. Jack Reacher can't find a ride, so he walks. All he wants is a cup of coffee. What he gets are four hostile locals, a vagrancy charge, and an order to move on. They're picking on the wrong guy.
Reacher is a hard man. No job, no address, no baggage. Nothing at all, except hardheaded curiosity. What are the secrets that Despair seems so desperate to hide?
With just one ally-a mysterious woman cop from Hope-and many enemies, Reacher goes up against a whole town, hunting the rich man at its core, cracking open his terrifying agenda, asking the question: Who has the edge-a man with everything to gain, or a man with nothing to lose?
When Jack Reacher comes into the town of Despair, Colorado looking for a cup of coffee he instead gets beat up and thrown in jail. Readers of the previous 11 Reacher novels by Lee Childs will know that Despair just made a serious mistake. Aided by a beautiful lady cop from the neighboring town of Hope, Reacher returns to Despair and unleashes hell on the villains of the town, and in the process he uncovers a nefarious plot that involves a huge underground complex, the Iraqi war, and two missing young men.
