“High-powered, intricately wrought suspense.”—Janet Maslin, The New York Times
“Hold on tight. . . . This novel will give you whiplash as you rabidly turn pages. . . . May be [Lee Child’s] best.”—USA Today
New York City. Two in the morning. A subway car heading uptown. Jack Reacher, plus five other passengers. Four are okay. The fifth isn’t. And if you think Reacher isn’t going to get involved . . . then you don’t know Jack.
Susan Mark, the fifth passenger, had a big secret, and her plain little life was being watched in Washington, and California, and Afghanistan—by dozens of people with one thing in common: They’re all lying to Reacher. A little. A lot. Or just enough to get him killed. A race has begun through the streets of Manhattan, a maze crowded with violent, skilled soldiers on all sides of a shadow war. For Jack Reacher, a man who trusts no one and likes it that way, the finish line comes when you finally get face-to-face and look your worst enemy in the eye.
BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Lee Child's A Wanted Man.

“Propulsive . . . [Child is] an expert at ratcheting up tension.”—Los Angeles Times
“A top-notch thriller.”—Booklist (starred review)
“Edgy . . . thoroughly engrossing.”—The Miami Herald

    I thought Child did a great job building suspense after suspense. A real page turner.
  • Jack Reacher at his best

    By Wilmington 19805
    Lee Child has given Jack Reacher a little more grace and sophistication in this novel. The book has a great pace with well researched plot lines and supporting data with plenty of suspense and hidden agendas to go along. This book was a great late night read!
  • Great book

    By Forever games1011
    The mystery was well developed. I enjoyed the way the suspense built and the story kept me on my toes. The twists and turns in the story gave to an unpredictable conclusion. I have the book and already read and reread unite a number of times. I highly recommend this book if your looking for a good, well written read.
  • Uh... No.

    I'm only halfway through. I'm tired of Jack Reacher and his unexplainable, unsupported, "I know what's going on and I'm going to tell everyone." Add to that a lack of suspense or action. I'm not claiming to read any good books but I would recommend Baldacci instead - at maybe 4 stars.
  • First Time Reader of Lee Child ...

    By The Kearnal
    I enjoyed this book and will certainly read in the future. The book did a nice job of building suspense and laying out a complex story line. At times I got a bit tired of overly detailed descriptions of the scenery and glossed over. Overall I like the Jack Reacher character and the 1st person narrative ... nice discovery of a new author to read.
  • One of the best in the series

  • Excellent

    By 4ah
    Lee Child back to his usually standards. Excellent story line, great subject matter... High action Reacher at his best, but getting a little slower with age. You're going to live this one.
  • Thrilling
