"Family secrets come back to haunt Jack Reacher in this electrifying thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child, "a superb craftsman of suspense" (Entertainment Weekly). Jack Reacher has extended his thumb and hit the pavement. His plan is to follow the autumn sun on an epic trip across America, from Maine to California. He doesn't get far. On a country road in rural New Hampshire, deep in the New England woods, he sees a sign to a place he has never been: The town where his father was born. He thinks, What's one extra day? and takes the detour. At the same moment, in the same isolated area, a car breaks down. Two young Canadians are trying to drive to New York City to sell a treasure.

Two mostly unrelated stories, based in Laconia, NH, that converge about three quarters of the way through to me in a seemingly forced manner. One is slightly interesting, the other an overused and completely predictable trope. Jack Reacher is hitchhiking from Maine to San Diego, and decides to go through Laconia, his father’s birthplace to examine his roots. Very little can be found in the public records, except that it seems that Stan's predilection for justice was passed on to son, Jack. Jack's traipsing around the public records office and the oldest members of the local community is a bore. He visits various public records offices, and gets a lot of help from the locals when dad Stan Reacher doesn't show up right away in the town’s 80-year-old census records. At the same time, a young Canadian couple on its way to NYC has car trouble, and ends up at a remote motel. They are marooned, because the weird motel owners are not helpful, using a litany of excuses. Eventually, the couple finds themselves imprisoned, because the motel owners have secret, nefarious plans for them. (The couple was about the interesting part of the book.) In the final quarter, the pace finally accelerates from a crawl, making the book okay. ( )

It's Reacher. Not the best one, far from the worst. Enjoy. ( )

Had ton of fun reading this, like almost all Reacher's. The plot is not among the best ones, but it is still very enjoyable. Small bodycount for a Reacher-book. ( )

Jack Reacher caught the last of the summer sun in a small town on the coast of Maine, and then, like the birds in the sky above him, he began his long migration south.
