The Midnight Line - Jack Reacher, Bk 22 Author:Lee Child Reacher rides the bus north from Milwaukee. At a comfort stop in Wisconsin dairy country in a small Midwestern town, he takes an aimless stroll past a pawn shop. Among the cheap junk in the shop window he notices a West Point class ring for sale. It's tiny. A woman cadet's ring, and it has her initials engraved on the inside. Reach... more »er's a West Pointer too, and he knows what she must have gone through to get it. Why would she pawn it? Reacher fights through the upper Midwest, from a lowlife bar on the sad side of small town to a dirt-blown crossroads in the middle of nowhere, encountering bikers, cops, crooks, muscle, and a missing-persons PI who wears a suit and a tie. All he wants is to find the woman. If she's OK, he'll walk away. If she's not...he'll stop at nothing, set on a raw and elemental quest for simple justice. Best advice: don't get in his way. The deeper Reacher digs, and the more he learns, the more dangerous the terrain becomes. Turns out the ring was just a small link in a far darker chain. Powerful forces are guarding a vast criminal enterprise. Some lines should never be crossed. But then, neither should Reacher.
