In this eBook exclusive short story, #1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child goes back to 1989, when Jack Reacher is an MP assigned to solve the cold-blooded murder of a young officer--whose killer may be closer to Reacher than he suspects. Don't miss a thrilling preview of Lee Child's highly anticipated new Jack Reacher novel, Make Me! The telex is brief and to the point: One active-duty personnel found shot to death ten miles north of Fort Smith. Circumstances unknown. Found in a silver Porsche along an isolated forest road in Georgia, the victim was shot twice in the chest and once in the head. A professional hit. Clean. The crime scene suggests an ambush. Military police officer Jack Reacher is given the case. He calls his older brother, Colonel Joe Reacher, at the Pentagon for intel and taps Sergeant Frances Neagley to help him answer the big question: Who would kill a brilliant officer on the fast-track to greatness? For Jack Reacher, the answer hits home. Praise for #1 bestselling author Lee Child and his Reacher series "Welcome to the relentless world of Jack Reacher and his impressive tendency to be in the wrong place at the right time. . . . Child has created an iconic character that other thriller writers try to emulate but don't come close to matching."--Associated Press "[Reacher] is the stuff of myth, a great male fantasy. . . . One of this century's most original, tantalizing pop-fiction heroes."--The Washington Post "Jack Reacher is the coolest continuing series character now on offer."--Stephen King "Child is a superb craftsman of suspense."--Entertainment Weekly "Easily the best thriller series going."--NPR "The truth about Reacher gets better and better."--Janet Maslin, The New York Times "If you're a thriller fan and you're not reading the Reacher series, you're not a thriller fan."--Chicago Tribune

POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT:

"...Were you out sick the day they taught thinking?" "Now you're being unpleasant." "Not yet," Reacher said. "You'll notice the difference." "This is a public road. I could arrest you." "Theoretically possible. Like I could get a date with Miss America..."
===
"Why me? Why didn't you do it?" "Like they say in England, why buy a dog and bark yourself?"
===
"This place is so upscale even the downstairs people are upstairs."

POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT:

There are three possible vectors for the Cold War. It could go hot, or it could stay the same, or the Soviet Union could fall apart under its own weight.
===
"You think this is a financial crime?" "Who knows, with rich people? They're different from you and me."
===
"... He decides to make a living by mugging Delta Force and Army Rangers? Good luck with that career choice."

The guy stepped closer and looked at Reacher's chest. U.S. Army. Reacher. He said, "You're the boy who don't like our work." Reacher said, "I'm the boy?"

A short short book with ultra-fast pace on the investigation of a 1989 murder outside of a military base. The events were laid out without finesse, just the facts. Along comes the case cracker Reacher. He looked at the evidence, questioned the loose ends. searched for motives and pieced them up neatly for the readers. Awesome, much improved over his earlier Novellas.
