Reacher takes a train and gets off at a place called Mother’s Rest. He is intrigued by the name and how it came to be in the middle of nowhere. He, being Reacher, tries to find out the meaning of the name but in doing so he becomes the object of suspicion among certain members of the community. He hooks up with a retired FBI agent who is trying to find her fellow private eye who disappeared in Mother’s Rest. As they investigate they are subject to several indignities and acts of violence all over the southwest. They begin to think they know what is going on in Mother’s Rest but in a twist that neither they nor I saw coming it is completely different. The people who are involved are taking advantage of those who are attempting, for what ever reason, to end their lives.
Did I enjoy it? The character of Reacher is awesome and Lee Child’s ability to keep the suspense going for so long is amazing..
