Overview
With Reacher, #1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child has created a series that stands in the front rank of modern thrillers (The Washington Post).
Everything starts somewhere. . . .
For elite military cop Jack Reacher, that somewhere was Carter Crossing, Mississippi, way back in 1997. A lonely railroad track. A crime scene. A coverup.
A young woman is dead, and solid evidence points to a soldier at a nearby military base. But that soldier has powerful friends in Washington.
Reacher is ordered undercover to find out everything he can, to control the local police, and then to vanish. Reacher is a good soldier. But when he gets to Carter Crossing, he finds layers no one saw coming, and the investigation spins out of control.
Local sheriff Elizabeth Deveraux has a thirst for justice and an appetite for secrets. Uncertain they can trust one another, Reacher and Deveraux reluctantly join forces. Reacher works to uncover the truth, while others try to bury it forever. The conspiracy threatens to shatter his faith in his mission, and turn him into a man to be feared.
A novel of unrelenting suspense that could only come from the pen of #1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child, The Affair is the start of the Reacher saga, a thriller that takes Reacher and his readers right to the edge . . . and beyond."

As usual, veteran narrator Dick Hill does a masterful job of evoking world-weary investigator Jack Reacher, this time in the prequel to Child’s bestselling series. In this installment, the author finally spells out the circumstances surrounding Reacher’s departure from his job as a military cop: the investigation into the murder of a young woman in a small Mississippi community. As the truth slowly unfolds, Hill delivers a nuanced performance of a character he’s voiced for some 14 years. While the introduction of a potential love interest spices up the homicide inquiry, Hill’s rendition of her dialogue may remind some listeners of Dustin Hoffman’s portrayal of Dorothy Michaels in Tootsie—and that takes some getting used to. Nonetheless, Hill’s gifts as an actor are evident throughout, and he shines during the book’s final confrontation in which Reacher explains how he put all the pieces together. A Delacorte hardcover. (Sept.)
