Summary:

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Jack Reacher is back in a brand-new page-turning thriller from acclaimed #1 bestselling authors Lee Child and Andrew Child.

Digging graves had not been part of my plans when I woke up that morning. 

Reacher goes where he wants, when he wants. That morning he was heading west, walking under the merciless desert sun—until he comes upon a curious scene. A Jeep has crashed into the only tree for miles around. A woman is slumped over the wheel.
 
Dead? No, nothing is what it seems. 

The woman is Michaela Fenton, an army veteran turned FBI agent trying to find her twin brother, who might be mixed up with some dangerous people. Most of them would rather die than betray their terrifying leader, who has burrowed his influence deep into the nearby border town, a backwater that has seen better days. The mysterious Dendoncker rules from the shadows, out of sight and under the radar, keeping his dealings in the dark.
 
He would know the fate of Fenton’s brother. 

Reacher is good at finding people who don’t want to be found, so he offers to help, despite feeling that Fenton is keeping secrets of her own. But a life hangs in the balance. Maybe more than one. But to bring Dendoncker down will be the riskiest job of Reacher's life. Failure is not an option, because in this kind of game, the loser is always better off dead.

    I’m a Reacher fan for many years and have noticed a decline in the cohesiveness of Reacher character portrayal over the last few releases. This definitely isn’t the Jack Reacher I grew to love. The audio version presentation does not fit the character at all in my opinion. This plot was disjointed and not believable and also lacked the human element so endearing about Reacher. Disappointed- very disappointed. Perhaps Reacher needs to retire. These last few books lack author passion. So sorry…Judy L in Dallas

    great book I love the Reacher character...of course I'm still a little dejected after the loss of Dick Hill...regardless Reachers edge seems to be weining possibly due to his age I'm assuming...still all in all an entertaining read

    Read all lee child’s books, last couple not good at all. Sold his soul when he let Tom cruise play reacher. I think Andrew should find another line of work.

    Not good. Don't bother.

    I've read all of the series, listened to most of them too. I've seen this coming for a while. The series is played out and bringing in a different author didn't help. in fact it ruined it for me. This guy in this book is not Jack reacher. I've come to know and love reacher, and this is a joke. Reacher doesn't punch people in the arms aiming for the nerves he kicks them in the balls and head butts them. I will not be reading anymore of this poo-poo
