It turns out that Susan Mark’s life was critical to dozens of others in Washington, California, and Afghanistan … from a former Delta Force operator now running for the U.S. Senate to a beautiful young woman with a story to tell, but can Reacher sort through their lies in time to save himself and help a woman police officer?”
