Nothing to Lose: A Jack Reacher Novel

Lee Child, Author . Delacorte $27 (407p) ISBN 978-0-385-34056-4

At the start of bestseller Child’s solid 12th Jack Reacher novel (after Bad Luck and Trouble ), the ex-military policeman hitchhikes into Colorado, where he finds himself crossing the metaphorical and physical line that divides the small towns of Hope and Despair. Despair lives up to its name; all Reacher wants is a cup of coffee, but what he gets is attacked by four thugs and thrown in jail on a vagrancy charge. After he’s kicked out of town, Reacher reacts in his usual manner—he goes back and whips everybody’s butt and busts up the town’s police force. In the process, he discovers, with the help of a good-looking lady cop from Hope, that a nearby metal processing plant is part of a plan that involves the war in Iraq and an apocalyptic sect bent on ushering in the end-time. With his powerful sense of justice, dogged determination and the physical and mental skills to overcome what to most would be overwhelming odds, Jack Reacher makes an irresistible modern knight-errant.
