From Charlaine Harris, the best-selling author who created Sookie Stackhouse and the world of Bon Temps, Louisiana, comes a new, darker world - populated by more strangers than friends.

It´s a pretty standard dried-up western town. There´s a pawnshop (someone lives in the basement and is seen only at night). There´s a diner (people who are just passing through tend not to linger). And there´s new resident Manfred Bernardo, who thinks he´s found the perfect place to work in private (and who has secrets of his own). Stop at the one traffic light in town, and everything looks normal. Stay awhile, and learn the truth.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Susan Bennett.

Can Rodney afford to pay the price?
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER ? Lee Child returns with a gripping new powerhouse thriller featuring Jack Reacher, ´´one of this century´s most original, tantalizing pop-fiction heroes´´ (The Washington Post). Reacher takes a stroll through a small Wisconsin town and sees a class ring in a pawn shop window: West Point 2005. A tough year to graduate: Iraq, then Afghanistan. The ring is tiny, for a woman, and it has her initials engraved on the inside. Reacher wonders what unlucky circumstance made her give up something she earned over four hard years. He decides to find out. And find the woman. And return her ring. Why not? So begins a harrowing journey that takes Reacher 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 in the Wyoming wilderness. 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.
