Reacher is the only stranger in town on the day they have had their first homicide in thirty years.The cops arrest Reacher and the police chief turns eyewitness to place him at the scene.

Review quote

"'Great style and careful plotting... Depicted with the kind of detail that builds dread and suspense.' New York Times" "'Beautifully detailed action scenes and fascinating arcana about currency and counterfeiting enliven this taut and tough-minded first novel... Child writes with a hand as strong and steady as steel.' Publishers' Weekly" "At least as good as any of Grisham's." Cork Examiner "Stunningly dynamic" Daily Mail "The best thriller I've read in years" New Statesman

Review text

Corruption, intimidation and worse in deepest Georgia; a rumble of trucks in the night, a deadline that threatens the very stability of the dollar - a lone stranger hits town, they don't know their man or his back-ground when they frame him for murder. An updated version of the Western, e.g. Shane, well-plotted, horrendously violent, before the stranger rides into the sunset and the US Treasury breathes again. (Kirkus UK)
