Everything starts somewhere. For elite military cop Jack Reacher, that somewhere was Carter Crossing, Mississippi, way back in 1997. Reacher is ordered undercover to investigate the murder of a young woman. Evidence points to a U.S. soldier with powerful friends. Once in Carter Crossing, Reacher meets local sheriff Elizabeth Deveraux, who has a thirst for justice and an appetite for secrets. Uncertain they can trust each other, they reluctantly join forces. Reacher works to uncover the truth, while others try to bury it forever. The conspiracy threatens to shatter his faith in his mission-and turn him into a man to be feared.
Special Agent Pendergast-one of the most original, compelling characters in all of contemporary fiction-returns in Preston and Child´s new exhilarating novel. A long-buried family secret has come back to haunt Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast. It begins with murder. One of Pendergast´s most implacable, most feared enemies is found on his doorstep, dead. Pendergast has no idea who is responsible for the killing, or why the body was brought to his home. The mystery has all the hallmarks of the perfect crime, save for an enigmatic clue: a piece of turquoise lodged in the stomach of the deceased. The gem leads Pendergast to an abandoned mine on the shore of California´s Salton Sea, which in turn propels him on a journey of discovery deep into his own family´s sinister past. But Pendergast learns there is more at work than a ghastly episode of family history: he is being stalked by a subtle killer bent on vengeance over an ancient transgression. And he soon becomes caught in a wickedly clever plot, which leaves him stricken in mind and body, and propels him toward a reckoning beyond anything he could ever have imagined....
En la decimocuarta entrega de la serie del inspector Pendergast, la siniestra sombra de una venganza ancestral amenaza la vida del agente del FBI. A las nueve y veinte de la noche llaman al timbre de la residencia neoyorquina del agente especial Aloysius Pendergast, y la fiel Constance Greene acude a abrir. En el umbral aparece Alban, el hijo de Pendergast, cuyo cuerpo atado con cuerdas gruesas cae estrepitosamente al suelo. Está muerto. Su padre sale a la calle y persigue sin éxito a un sospechoso coche negro. Un informe dictaminará más tarde que el cadáver no presentaba signos de violencia, ni restos de alcohol o drogas. A Alban le partieron el cuello en un crimen planeado al detalle e impecablemente ejecutado, obra de profesionales. Al día siguiente el teniente Peter Angler, encargado del caso, habla con el padre de la víctima y su actitud le desconcierta: Pendergast le informa de que apenas tenía relación con su hijo, se declara incapaz de especular sobre las causas del crimen y aparentemente no tiene interés en cooperar con la investigación policial. Pero, en cuanto llega a casa, Pendergast accede a la base de datos de homicidios no resueltos y localiza los resultados de ADN del llamado Asesino de los Hoteles, cuya brutalidad mantuvo en vilo a Manhattan hace año y medio. Solo tiene una pista: la gema encontrada en el estómago de la víctima.

Sex offenders in California: beware! New public-place laws are restricting and banning many more areas where convicted sex offenders can go. Because of ´´child safety zones´´, some beaches, parks, and harbors are now off limits. Susie reads from a New York Times article that lays out both sides of the issue. Of course parents want their kids to be safe, but as Susie notes, many convicted sex offenders were picked up for public urination, not sex crimes. Orange County has taken the severe step of placing all ´´sex´´ offenders into one group that needs to be feared and restricted. Next, in our ´´Tell Me Your Sex Story´´ segment, Susie talks with another willing listener who steps into her sexual confession booth. Today we meet ´´Cecelia´´, a 38-year-old woman from the Midwest who has had many sexual experiences - and she´s willing to talk details. Susie and Cecelia discuss how pheromones change a transgendered person´s smell, about doing a strip tease dressed as a clown, and ponder who´s hotter: a butch dyke or a gay femme? Then, Susie reaches into our ´´Try This at Home´´ mailbag and finds a letter about sex and disabilities: ´´Dear Susie, how do you have sex in a wheelchair?´´ Have a question? You can call Susie´s hotline at 831-480-5110. And you can send your confidential questions - plus requests for free samples and blog banners! - to firstname.lastname@example.org.
