A short summary of Make Me, taken from WellRead.

Make Me is set in a place called Mother’s Rest. Reacher is drawn to the town by the name and really only expects to spend a day in the town. It turns out to be much longer when none of the locals will speak to him and then he meets an ex-FBI, now Private Investigator, Chang who is on the lookout for her colleague Keever. Keever has been killed and is buried beneath a pig farm. Reacher is intrigued by the secrets and the silence and agrees to help Chang in her investigation. During the investigation, they discover the names of a journalist Westwood, who deals with conspiracy theories.

They discover that McCann has gone missing, just at the point when they have to avoid a hitman who tries to kill them both. They decide they have hit upon something big. The hitman leads them to a Ukrainian mastermind: Merchenko who is running the security for someone who lives in Mother’s Rest. Reacher kills the mastermind outside his club.
