En sen aften på en café i New York.For hurtigt at kunne komme væk bestiller Jack Reacher kaffe i et papkrus, ikke et af porcelæn. Han ejer ingenting, bærer rundt på mindre. Han har aldrig mødt en kvinde, der sagde nej. Eller en sag, han ikke kunne opklare.Men da Reacher bliver inddraget i opklaringen af kidnapningen af mangemillionæren Edward Lanes kone og steddatter, får han sin sag for. Pludselig slår hans sædvanligvis ualmindeligt gode analytiske evner ikke til, og kidnapperne opfører sig gang på gang helt anderledes, end han har forventet.Det er ikke første gang, at Edward Lane har en kone, der bliver kidnappet. Den første blev fundet død, og Reacher sporer et mønster og får mistanke om, at det måske er Lane selv, der står bag kidnapningen. Men der er stadig alt for meget, han ikke kan få til at stemme...Copyright © Lee Child 2006Oversat af Bente Møller Sørensen fra The Hard Way Omslagslayout: stoltzedesignspændende bøger, bortførelse, USA
"„Hold nallerne fra specialefterforskerne, eller du vil fortryde det!“ Det var det rygte, der gik om Jack Reacher og hans ni mand store gruppe, dengang de efterforskede forbrydelser begået af hærens personel. Deres opklaringsprocent var i top, og Gud nåde og trøste den, der kom gruppen på tværs.Ti år efter at gruppen er blevet opløst, og Jack Reacher er gået på landevejene, er der imidlertid nogen, der ikke kan holde nallerne fra efterforskerne. Faktisk vippes en af dem levende ud af en helikopter. Og derefter endnu en! Dengang ville man ikke kunne sidde det overhørigt, og det kan man selvfølgelig heller ikke nu, og resterne af gruppen trommes sammen. Er nogen ude efter gruppen som enhed, eller havde de to uheldige gang i en efterforskning, de skulle have holdt sig fra? Lige meget! Hvem det end er, vil vedkommende komme til at fortryde det.Lee Child er født i England, men besluttede sig i begyndelsen af sin forfatterkarriere for at slå amerikanerne på deres egen hjemmebane, og flyttede til USA.

Bogen er indlæst af Torsten Alder, der er professionel indlæser. Han har i mange år indlæst romaner, noveller og digte for bl.a. Gyldendal.Han er kendt som speaker på store DR dokumentarprogrammer i tv."
"""Selvmordsbombere er lette at spotte. Der er alle mulige afslørende tegn. Først og fremmest er de nervøse. Per definition er de førstegangsselvmordere.""Således begynder denne nye roman af Lee Child med Jack Reacher i hovedrollen. Reacher sidder i NYs subway og sætter mentalt hak ud for 11 punkter på en 12-punkts liste, som israelerne har udarbejdet over de typiske tegn, selvmordsbombere udviser. Det tolvte punkt, at de altid er nybarberede, har Reacher valgt at se bort fra - personen, han sidder og holder øje med, mens han forsøger at lægge en strategi, er nemlig en kvinde. Alle de andre punkter passer.Reacher tager fejl. Kvinden har ikke tænkt sig at slå en masse mennesker ihjel, kun et par stykker, mænd der i den grad fortjener at dø, og bagefter - da det hele er overstået - ville Reacher brændende ønske, at han havde blandet sig langt udenom.LEE CHILD er englænder, men deler sin tid mellem New York og Frankrig. Han har med sit forfatterskab bevist, at det ikke kun er amerikanerne, der mestrer den actionprægede thrillergenre. Bøgerne om Jack Reacher går deres sejrsgang på både engelske og amerikanske bestsellerlister, og de er oversat til 36 forskellige sprog. Child betragtes i dag som en af verdens største thrillerforfattere.Lydbogen er indlæst af Torsten Adler. Torsten er professionel indlæser. Han har i mange år indlæst romaner, noveller og digte for bl.a. Gyldendal.Han er kendt som speaker på store DR dokumentarprogrammer i tv."
