Jack Reacher is back in the New York City having his favorite coffee shots in a shop and observing the street. He saw and ignore a man getting in a wrongly parked car and driving in it until the next evening when he visited the same coffee shop (quite unusual for Reacher to be at same place twice) again. He found a man inquiring about any customers present last evening.
This changed his next few days when he was involved in investigating the kidnapping of a wife, a daughter and missing driver cum bodyguard. He found himself in the midst of mercenaries and got involved with an ex FBI investigator, visited London, found the truth, tried to correct some wrong doing and so on and so forth.
The Hard Way is another classic Reacher thriller.
