Synopsis

Crime. Following a riverside shooting that leaves five dead, former soldier James Barr is arrested. What at first seems like a simple case becomes complicated when Barr, unable to speak in hospital, writes three words on a pad: 'Get Jack Reacher'. Reacher, Barr's former army colleague, has no home, no car or credit cards, but travels where he wishes, living off his army pension, and righting wrongs wherever he finds them. Barr's case leads him into a dangerous mystery with the D.A.'s daughter making some shocking discoveries about the true nature of what happened on the day of the shooting.
