Sergeant Amy Callan und Lieutenant Caroline Cook haben einiges gemeinsam. Beide wollten Karriere bei der Armee machen, beide waren Opfer sexueller Belästigung durch Kollegen, beide ließen sich anschließend vom Dienst suspendieren – und beide sind jetzt tot. Wiederum in Übereinstimmung wurden sie beide in ihrer eigenen Badewanne aufgefunden, in Armee-Tarnfarbe schwimmend, die Leichen scheinbar völlig unberührt und ohne ein einziges Anzeichen für die Todesursache. Hochrangige Profiler des FBI beginnen fieberhaft die Jagd nach einem Serienmörder: einem Angehörigen der Armee, einem hochintelligenten, einsamen, unbarmherzigen Mann, der beide Frauen kannte – und wahrscheinlich noch ein paar weitere, auf die Amys und Carolines Opferprofil ebenfalls zutrifft. Auf Jack Reacher, einen ehemaligen Spitzen-Ermittler der Militärpolizei, passen diese Merkmale auffallend perfekt. Das FBI kreist ihn ein, muss aber rasch erkennen, daß er nicht der Täter ist - sondern vielmehr der einzige, der bei der Lösung dieses scheinbar unlösbaren Falles helfen kann. Doch Reacher hat nicht die Absicht, sich vor den Karren des FBI spannen zu lassen...
In the near future, America's worst nightmare has come true. With military adventurism overseas bogging down the Army and National Guard, the U.S. government mistakenly neglects the very real threat of anti-establishment militias scattered across the 50 states. Like a sleeping giant, Middle America rises up and violently pushes its way to the shining seas, coming to a standstill at the line in the sand: Manhattan or, as the world now knows it, the DMZ. In this volume, a new leader rises in the DMZ--but what will that mean for Matty Roth, a journalist who calls the zone home? After a near-tragic misadventure in Staten Island, Matty returns to find Parco Delgado in office as provisional governor of New York. Matty's first task under the Delgado regime? Tracking down the source of one of the DMZ's greatest urban legends. Collects DMZ #29-44.
