Someone has tried to assassinate the president of France from such a great distance that there are very few suspects in the whole world. Jack Reacher is asked to assist on the case because one of the possible shooters is someone he put in prison years ago, but is now free. Soon, Reacher realizes that the suspect, John Kott, wants revenge against Reacher for putting him in prison. Will Reacher, with the help of the State Department's Casey Nice, be able to unravel the truth about who the guilty man is before anyone else comes to harm? While I always enjoy touching base with the character of Reacher, the plot of this novel, set mostly in Europe with a bit of international espionage, didn't really appeal to me.
