Hook Hobie owes the whole of his life to a secret nearly thirty years old. His freedom, his status, his wealth. Everything. So he takes steps to protect that secret.
He has early-warning systems in strategic locations, dormant, waiting. He detects an investigator on the outer fringe. The investigator disappears. Hobie relaxes. But the investigator’s client is a determined young woman. She recalls a name from her father’s service days. That name is Jack Reacher.
Reacher has just a few days to tear along the trail. And at the centre of the web sits Hook Hobie, ready and waiting for him, the toughest opponent Reacher has ever faced.
