Jack Reacher series book 16
Narrator Dick Hill
Everything starts somewhere...
For elite military cop Jack Reacher, that somewhere was Carter Crossing,
Mississippi, way back in 1997. A lonely railroad track. A crime scene.
A young woman is dead, and solid evidence points to a soldier at a nearby
military base. But that soldier has powerful friends in Washington.
Reacher is ordered undercover - to find out everything he can, to control
the local police, and then to vanish. Reacher is a good soldier. But when
he gets to Carter Crossing, he finds layers no one saw coming, and the
investigation spins out of control.
The local sheriff is Elizabeth Deveraux, a beautiful woman and an ex-
Marine MP. She has all the skills she needs, but she's making no progress.
Why not? Is there a reason she doesn't want the killer identified? And
there's constant pressure from the Pentagon, too. Shadowy figures from the
world of politics want the killer unmasked.but only if he's a civilian.
Any other result would be a catastrophe.
Reacher and Deveraux can't get near the base. There's a shadow force in
the woods, enforcing a quarantine zone around the fence. But side by side
they piece together the evidence.and their partnership becomes more than
professional. Eventually the army's official investigation produces a cast-
iron prime suspect.and so does Reacher's undercover search.
But Reacher's answer is not the same as the army's.
If he keeps quiet, will he be able to live with himself? And, if he speaks
out, will the army be able to live with him?
A novel of unrelenting suspense that could only come from the pen of #1
New York Times bestselling author Lee Child, The Affair is the start of
the Reacher saga, a thriller that takes Reacher - and his readers - right
to the edge ... and beyond.
