Onths before the opening of Killing Floor and it marks a turning point in Reacher's career If he does what the army wants will he be able to live with himself And if he doesn't will the army be able to live with himIs this his last case in uniform This is the sixteenth Jack Reacher novel and it's among the best of them all For the second time Lee Child goes back to tell a story from earlier in Reacher's life and this is the Jack Reacher origin story It takes place back in 1997 when Reacher was still in the Army Reacher loves the Army and it's the only home he's ever known even as a child when he grew up a military brat But the Army is now in trouble The Cold War has ended; the war on terror is yet to begin and budget cutters are looking to downsize the Army Lots of positions could be lost even that of a career military man like ReacherMore immediately the Army faces a potential crisis down in the backwoods of Mississippi A scandal could be brewing there that would hit the Army hard at a time when it is already vulnerable Reacher is assigned to head south incognito to work as the outside man in a two man investigating team that will try to define and resolve the crisis But their most important mission is to protect the Army no matter the cost The assignment though is very vague and it's clear that Reacher's commanding officer expects him to do a lot of reading between the linesThe crisis whatever its real nature has been triggered by the savage murder of a young woman in Carter Crossing Mississippi a tiny town that exists to serve an Army base with a somewhat mysterious purpose The Army's apparent fear is that a military man will be exposed as the killer triggering a major scandal at a time when the Army can least afford itReacher makes his way to the little town but his cover is blown immediately by the local sheriff a very tough smart sexy ex Marine named Elizabeth Deveraux The two form a wary partnership and it uickly becomes apparent that a huge conspiracy may be at work here But what is the conspiracy Who's involved And most important who can Reacher trustReacher being Reacher he is determined to ferret out the truth Along the way he'll have to beat the crap out of some local bad boys and he'll also have to sort out his relationship with Sheriff Deveraux Reacher being Reacher he will also attempt to mete out justice however rough The real uestion is whether he can do so in a way that serves his mission and his determination to protect the Army without destroying himself in the processThis is really an excellent addition to the series much nuanced than some of the other entries with a plot that builds to a great climax Reacher's fans are sure to love it and those who have not yet made his acuaintance would find this an excellent place to start
