A "Piece of Passion" from the publisher...
‘I fell in love with Jack Reacher as a character when I first read early material of this very first thriller by Lee Child – here was a hero for our time, trained to think fast and act faster, a strong, silent, pragmatic and ruthless righter of wrongs who also had his tender side and was therefore equally appealing to a woman like me as he was to my male colleagues: although the proofs of every new Reacher thriller are instantly snapped up, this first book remains a favourite of so many people at Transworld for the past fifteen years, and I can honestly say that everyone who works here takes pride in the way Lee has since broken through into the superleague of thriller writers.'

But Margrave has just had its first homicide in thirty years. And Reacher is the only stranger in town. So he is thrown into jail. As the body count mounts, only one thing is for sure: They picked the wrong guy to take the fall.
