and a stunningly beautiful woman. Her investigation is going nowhere. Is the Pentagon stonewalling her? Or doesnt she really want to find the killer? The adrenaline-pumping, high-voltage action in The Affair is set just six months before the opening of Killing Floor , and it marks a turning point in Reachers career. If he does what the army wants, will he be able to live with himself? And if he doesnt, will the army be able to live with him? And is this his last case in uniform? Carter Crossing, Mississippi. 1997. A lonely railroad track. A crime scene. A coverup. A young woman is dead, and solid evidence points to a soldier at a nearby military base.
