Fans of the Jack Reacher series will enjoy the display of his deductive skills in this story of an abused wife in the outback of Texas. Readers who are not yet fans will also admire his Dr. Gregory House approach to solving a mystery or, in this case, a nested series of mysteries surrounding an attractive Mexican-American wife and the imperious old west family she has married into. Reacher pairs up with a beautiful lesbian lawyer to fight an archaic Texas legal system as well as some very skilled professional killers in this thriller that is as wide ranging as the well-painted Texas landscape it is set against.
