Jack Reacher vive alla giornata, senza molti soldi e senza legami. E, come sempre, cerca di tenersi fuori dai guai. Ma quando un detective di New York, che stava cercando proprio lui, viene ucciso prima di potergli parlare, Reacher capisce all'istante che qualcosa non quadra. Reacher ignora che il suo cammino verso la soluzione dell'enigma sarà segnato dalla presenza di un individuo spietato coperto da cicatrici e con un uncino al posto della mano che ha molto da nascondere a cominciare dal suo passato in Vietnam. Per vincere la partita, Reacher dovrà scavare nel proprio passato, ripercorrendo vicende che sperava di aver chiuso per sempre.

This is the third Jack Reacher novel by Lee Child. My husband and I "buddy" read these. My husband loves Jack Reacher. After reading the first two in the series, I can see why the Reacher novels are so appealing to the male population. Lots of details on guns and weapons and lots of action. I enjoye Leggi tutto
