Family secrets come back to haunt Jack Reacher in this electrifying thriller from number-one New York Times best-selling author Lee Child, "a superb craftsman of suspense" (Entertainment Weekly).
Jack Reacher hits the pavement and sticks out his thumb. He plans to follow the sun on an epic trip across America, from Maine to California. He doesn't get far. On a country road deep in the New England woods, he sees a sign to a place he has never been: the town where his father was born. He thinks, What's one extra day? He takes the detour.
At the same moment, in the same isolated area, a car breaks down. Two young Canadians had been on their way to New York City to sell a treasure. Now, they're stranded at a lonely motel in the middle of nowhere. The owners seem almost too friendly. It's a strange place, but it's all there is.
The next morning, in the city clerk's office, Reacher asks about the old family home. He's told no one named Reacher ever lived in town. He's always known his father left and never returned, but now Reacher wonders, Was he ever there in the first place?
As Reacher explores his father's life, and as the Canadians face lethal dangers, strands of different stories begin to merge. Then, Reacher makes a shocking discovery: The present can be tough, but the past can be tense...and deadly.
"Superb... [Lee] Child's spare prose continues to set a very high bar." (Publishers Weekly, boxed and starred review)
