GET READY FOR THE MOST EXCITING COUNT-DOWN OF YOUR LIFEHOUR SIXTY-ONE Icy winter in South Dakota. Eldridge Tyler is a patient man. Add to that a decades-old mystery about a long-missing girl, and Reacher can’t leave such situations alone. He’s a quasi-supernatural protagonist, and it’s sometimes better to consider him as a semi-mythic incarnation of righteous fury than a believable character. The phone rings, and a woman asks for help. Unfortunately, we only get a partial explanation of how Reacher made it out of the dire situation at the end of the last book –if you’re expecting a full answer, you may have to wait until he makes it to Virginia. He gets a call about a troublesome stranger, and he settles in with a long gun for a long wait.
