61 Hours is the fourteenth book in the Jack Reacher series written by Lee Child.
It was published on 18th March 2010 in the UK and 18th May 2010 in the USA
Set in the town of Bolton, South Dakota, Reacher begins his latest adventure on a wrecked senior citizen tour bus after an irresponsible motorist leaves the bus spinning on icy roads and trapped in a snowy bank. Suddenly immersed in a snowy, frozen landscape, Reacher works with local law enforcement to help the fragile victims.
Hours later, Reacher learns Bolton is not like most towns. Beside its freezing, snowy climate, the town plays host to one of the largest prisons in the U.S., making the town and its law enforcement cater to the needs and demands of the gigantic correctional facility. At the same time, a law-breaking band of bikers settled outside the town are on edge after their leader is arrested on drug charges. Awaiting trial, the lead witness, Janet Salter, becomes a top priority, and Reacher agrees to aid the local law enforcement to help protect the good Samaritan.
Throughout the story brutal enemies, both foreign and domestic, are revealed. The foreign criminal from Mexico is named Plato and the bad cop in Bolton is Chief Holland who murders both Salter and his deputy chief, Andrew Peterson. Reacher finds help from one of his successors, Susan Turner, the current leader of the elite 110th Special Investigations unit (Reacher's old command), while interesting new details of his past come to light such as how a dent appeared in his desk (from injuring a corrupt general).
The ending leaves the reader guessing as to the conclusion, with the words "To be concluded". We do not know how Reacher escapes up the staircase from the underground facility being filled with fuel by Plato's henchmen. Part 2 of the tale was published in September 2010 as Worth Dying For.
