Jack Reacher takes an aimless stroll past a pawn shop in a small Midwestern town. In the window he sees a West Point class ring from 2005. It s tiny. It s a woman cadet s graduation present to herself. Why would she give it up? Reacher s a West Pointer too, and he knows what she went through to get it.Reacher tracks the ring back to its owner, step by step, down a criminal trail leading west. Like Big Foot come out of the forest, he arrives in the deserted wilds of Wyoming. All he wants is to find the woman. If she s OK, he ll walk away. If she s not he ll stop at nothing.He s still shaken by the recent horrors of Make Me, and now The Midnight Line sees him set on a raw and elemental quest for simple justice. Best advice: don t get in his way.
