When he is accused of a series of killings - women who left the army after sexual harassment proceedings found with their hearts stopped in baths full of camouflage paint - he has to use his skills to clear his name, and to do the Army and FBI's work for them. The near-impossible perfection of Reacher's physique and brain are met here by a puzzle that almost meets the same standard of perfection - the reason he is suspected is simply that perfect detectives are handy patsies for perfect murders, and Reacher is, besides, a man whom those in authority find making them itch." -- Publisher description.

Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Featuring Jack Reacher, hero of the new blockbuster movie starring Tom Cruise.

Sergeant Amy Callan and Lieutenant Caroline Cooke have a lot in common.
Both were army high-flyers. Both were aquainted with Jack Reacher. Both were forced to resign from the service.

Now they're both dead.

Found in their own homes, naked, in a bath full of paint.
Apparent victims of an army man. A loner, a smart guy with a score to settle, a ruthless vigilante.

A man just like Jack Reacher.

"A Jack Reacher novel".

Also published as: Running Blind
