Review Quotes:
"The best mystery I have read all year."-- The Boston Globe

"A real dyed-in-the-wool hero...with a wicked sense of right and wrong. A story you can sink your teeth into."-- The Denver Post

"As sweltering as the El Paso sun...bottom line: jalapeno-hot suspense."-- People

"Constantly escalating tension and a host of sinister villains...a Texas version of Deliverance. Child is a vigorous storyteller, gradually building the suspense to almost unbearable levels."-- The St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"Smashingly suspenseful...The kind of daylight-noir setting that Jim Thompson loved. Child builds tension to unbearable extremes."-- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Publisher Marketing:
Jack Reacher finds trouble in Texas in the fifth novel in Lee Child's New York Times bestselling series.

Thumbing across the scorched Texas desert, Jack Reacher has nowhere to go and all the time in the world to get there. Cruising the same stretch of two-lane blacktop is Carmen Greer. For Reacher, the lift comes with a hitch. Carmen's got a wild story to tell--all about her husband, her family secrets, and a hometown that's purely gothic. She's also got a plan. Reacher's part of it. And before the sun sets, this ride could cost them both their lives.
