Locked in a dark, stifling van racing across America, chained to the woman, Reacher needs to know why he’s there. The kidnappers are saying nothing.The woman claims to be an FBI agent.She’s tough enough to be one. But at their remote destination, will raw courage and cunning be enough to overcome the hopeless odds?
