In this short story by Lee Child, our favorite ex-military guy, Jack Reacher, finds himself in the tiny village of Naismith in northern Maine near the Canadian border. With nothing better to do, he spends a day in a rented cabin, enjoying nature. By the next morning, military police have arrived and closed off the entrance to the hiking trails. What is going on, and where are the people he hitched a ride with the day before?
