Nothing to Lose (Jack Reacher Novels)by Lee Child
Synopses & Reviews
Two lonely towns in Colorado: Hope and Despair. Between them, twelve miles of empty road. Jack Reacher never turns back. It's not in his nature. All he wants is a cup of coffee. What he gets is big trouble. So in Lee Child’s electrifying new novel, Reacher — a man with no fear, no illusions, and nothing to lose — goes to war against a town that not only wants him gone, it wants him dead.
It wasn’t the welcome Reacher expected. He was just passing through, minding his own business. But within minutes of his arrival a deputy is in the hospital and Reacher is back in Hope, setting up a base of operations against Despair, where a huge, seething walled-off industrial site does something nobody is supposed to see . . . where a small plane takes off every night and returns seven hours later . . . where a garrison of well-trained and well-armed military cops — the kind of soldiers Reacher once commanded — waits and watches . . . where above all two young men have disappeared and two frightened young women wait and hope for their return.
Joining forces with a beautiful cop who runs Hope with a cool hand, Reacher goes up against Despair — against the deputies who try to break him and the rich man who tries to scare him — and starts to crack open the secrets, starts to expose the terrifying connection to a distant war that’s killing Americans by the thousand.
Now, between a town and the man who owns it, between Reacher and his conscience, something has to give. And Reacher never gives an inch.
“Explosive and nearly impossible to put down.”People
"Do yourself a favor and get hooked on this series." Cleveland Plain Dealer
"Colossal. Earthshaking. Stupendous...Jack Reacher is one of the most enduring action heroes on the American landscape." New York Times
"Jack Reacher's whiz-bang latest..." Kirkus Reviews
"...[T]he action is so grounded in everyday details that instead of laughing it all off as silly, we find ourselves responding on a deeply emotional, archetypal level." Booklist
All Jack Reacher wants is a cup of coffee when he stops in a small town in Colorado. What he gets instead is big trouble. In Child's #1 New York Times bestseller, Reacher goes to war against a town that not only wants him gone, it wants him dead.
Two small towns in the middle of nowhere: Hope and Despair. Between them, nothing but twelve miles of empty road. Jack Reacher cant find a ride, so he walks. All he wants is a cup of coffee. What he gets are four hostile locals, a vagrancy charge, and an order to move on. Theyre picking on the wrong guy.
Reacher is a hard man. No job, no address, no baggage. Nothing at all, except hardheaded curiosity. What are the secrets that Despair seems so desperate to hide?
With just one ally—a mysterious woman cop from Hope—and many enemies, Reacher goes up against a whole town, hunting the rich man at its core, cracking open his terrifying agenda, asking the question: Who has the edge—a man with everything to gain, or a man with nothing to lose?
