"As the ultimate outsider, Reacher brings a fresh, if cynical, perspective to a world that he never made -- and can't wait to escape." -- The New York Times " The] plot is ingenious...This is a superior series." -- The Washington Post Book World "Relentlessly paced...and absolutely mesmerizing." -- Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Skilled, cautious, and anonymous, Jack Reacher is perfect for the job: to assassinate the vice president of the United States. Theoretically, of course. A female Secret Service agent wants Reacher to find the holes in her system, and fast -- because a covert group already has the vice president in their sights. They've planned well. There's just one thing they didn't plan on: Reacher. "Irresistible." -- The Globe and Mail "Everything falls into place like a well-assembled time bomb." -- The Boston Globe "A stunner...the suspense becomes nearly unbearable." - Booklist.
