In the seven years since he learned that his U.S. marshal father led a double life as a contract killer - and committed suicide to avoid prosecution - Frank Temple III has mostly drifted through life. But when he learns that Devin Matteson, the man who lured his father into the killing game only to later give him up to the FBI, is returning to the isolated Wisconsin lake that was once sacred ground for their families, it's a homecoming Frank can't allow. Frank finds Matteson's old cabin occupied by a strange, beautiful woman and a nervous man with a gun. But with a pair of assassins arrives on the heels, he knows Matteson can't be far behind. The wise move would be to get out of town - but that doesn't feel right. After all, contract killer or not, Frank's father was at heart a teacher. And his son was an excellent student.

This brooding tale of revenge and survival is extremely vivid and has a lot more life and energy than the last handful of Reacher novels and a lot more warmth. The main character is the son of a disgraced lawman who was taught to kill from an early age and has spent the years since his father's death running from himself and the past, but when the man who betrayed his father is reported as returning home, he decides its time for revenge.
