Synopsis: Reacher never backs down from a problem. And he's about to find a big one, on a deserted Arizona road, where a Jeep has crashed into the only tree for miles around. Minutes later Reacher is heading in to the nearby border town. Next to him is Michaela Fenton, and army veteran turned FBI agent, who is trying to find her twin brother. He might have got mixed up with some dangerous people.
And Reacher might just need to pay them a visit. Just to get in and meet their mysterious leader, Reacher is going to have to achieve the impossible. To get answers will be even harder. There are people in this hostile, empty place who would rather die than reveal their secrets. But then, if Reacher is coming after you, you might be better off dead.

Review: Although there are lots of fights and way too much information about models of guns, the story is significantly twisted enough to be interesting. It's hard to determine if the bad guy is the only one or if there is someone else is involved. And what does Michaela actually know about her brother.

Reacher arrives in Colorado and discovers two towns; one good and one bad. He proceeds to rip apart the bad one with help from a cop of the good one. There's an evil CEO cult leader with henchmen. Satisfactory read.

The first half of the book is a bit slow but it goes nonstop for the second half.
Reacher gets picked up hitchhiking by a woman who eventually confesses she needs his help. Like most Reacher books he obliges and people start dying.

Quick easy read, obviously Reacher is not fully evolved this being the first book. But a great story.
