Jack Reacher, Book 2. In Die Trying, Jack Reacher is in the middle of nowhere and out of luck. He’s been arrested for vagrancy in a small town in Maine and as he waits at the local police station, he wonders what kind of trouble he’s gotten himself into this time. Then Wade Coe, an agent with the FBI comes sweeping through the door and Reacher suddenly realizes that he’s landed smack in the middle of another one of his cases…only this time it may be more than even Reacher can handle alone.
