After a long journey all the way from the snows of South Dakota, former military cop Jack Reacher has finally made it to Virginia, and to the headquarters of his old unit. What he didn't expect was trouble - he's been accused of a sixteen-year-old homicide. And he certainly didn't expect to hear the words, 'You're back in the army, Major. ' Will he be sorry he went back? Or will someone else?
Drop-out military cop Jack Reacher has hitchhiked his way to Virginia. His destination, the closest thing to a home he ever had: the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th Military Police. Reacher has no real reason to be here, except that he spoke to the new commanding officer on the phone.
He liked Major Susan Turner's voice.
But now he's arrived, she's disappeared, and things are getting weird. Accused of a sixteen-year-old homicide and co-opted back into the army, Reacher says nothing. But he's sure as hell thinking of a way out.
