The bestselling novel featuring the “wonderfully epic hero”(People) who inspired the hit films Jack Reacher and Jack Reacher: Never Go Back.

Ex-military policeman Jack Reacher is a drifter. He’s just passing through Margrave, Georgia, and in less than an hour, he’s arrested for murder. Not much of a welcome. All Reacher knows is that he didn’t kill anybody. At least not here. Not lately. But he doesn’t stand a chance of convincing anyone. Not in Margrave, Georgia. Not a chance in hell.


  • Wow.

    Simply wonderful.
  • Not bad, if...

    By Longhorn5555
    you can suspend disbelief when it comes to implausible leaps of "logic", ridiculous coincidences, etc. still, not too bad, and the series does get better (except for Echo Burning)... but, Tom Cruise as Reacher? Seriously?
  • Waste of time

    By Child's Fan
    I truly enjoy the Jack Reacher series. I believe I've read them all. This one, his first, I read last. This book is implausible, so full of ridiculous conclusion, segues, false information and sophomoric mistakes, it is best left unread. Move forward in the line a few and start the series there.
  • Would love to read but iBooks screws it up

    I'm not a reader. For me to take the time to read it has to be informative. I have never been a pleasure reader. My brother has read the Jack Reacher series. In conversation I became interested in learning more so as to be able to talk on the subject. I had a full Friday to waste while waiting for a five o'clock appt. in another town. I went to the local bookstore with the purpose of finding the first Jack Reacher book out out. I read for a few hrs at the bookstore, ended up getting the book and read the entire weekend finishing up the 400+ pages Sunday night. It wasn't speed reading either. I was just so into the story I couldn't put it down.
  • Unexpected and fully engaging

    I was not prepared to be sucked in by this series. Now, I'm on novel #4 and still sucked in. Well written cover to cover.
  • Good

    Still reading, about half way through. I don't read books ago ten, quite frankly I think they're boring but I can't quit turning pages on this book. It keeps you intrigued the entire time. Whether Reacher is fighting or speaking. There's never a dull moment in Reachers life.
