Praise for The Sentinel

'One of the many great things about Jack Reacher is that he's larger than life while remaining relatable and believable.
The Sentinel shows that two Childs are even better than one.' – James Patterson

'I loved The Sentinel! Classic Reacher, great story. Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant. I do love the spare writing style, the descriptions, Reacher’s responses to threats. Joyous stuff. I hope there will be many more Reachers to come.' – Conn Iggulden
