This pacy, nailbiting new Jack Reacher thriller is one of Lee Child's darkest and most addictive yet. Prepare to be nailed to your seat by another hair-raising, heart-pounding adventure from the kick ass master of the thriller genre!

Jack Reacher has no place to go, and all the time in the world to get there, so a remote railroad stop on the prairie with the curious name of Mother's Rest seems perfect for an aimless one-day stopover. He expects to find a lonely pioneer tombstone in a sea of nearly-ripe wheat ... but instead there is a woman waiting for a missing colleague, a cryptic note about two hundred deaths, and a small town full of silent, watchful people.

Reacher’s one-day stopover turns into an open-ended quest leading to the most hidden reaches of the internet, and right into the nightmare heart of darkness.

‘Child's best for some time…with detective-story and romcom elements (even sly humour) on top of the psychological duels and set-piece violence’ Sunday Times

Reviews

Child's best for some time: an enhancement of the old formula, with detective-story and romcom elements (even sly humour) on top of the psychological duels and set-piece violence.

Sunday Times

Typically blunt and energetic...precisely judged.

Independent

Lee Child's Reacher series has hit Book No. 20 with a resounding peal of wisecracking glee ("Are you going to be a problem?" "I'm already a problem. The question is, what are you going to do about it?"). Everything about it...is as strong as ever....Make Me is a hot one.

Janet Maslin, New York Times

Breathless and bloody...You can't help lapping it up.

Evening Standard

The fights are convincing and the dialogue is as brilliant as always.

Literary Review

I am very much in love with Jack Reacher - as a man and a role model. If I can't shag him, I want to be him.

Lucy Mangan, Stylist

The Reacher books are Westerns: they are about the man of honor coming to the lawless frontier town in order to impose a rough sort of justice...[Reacher]’s leading us back into the wilderness, with the reassurance that our psychopaths are bigger and stronger than the bad guys’ psychopaths. I’ve read all twenty of Lee Child’s novels. Maybe there’s something wrong with me. But I can’t wait for the twenty-first.

Malcolm Gladwell, New Yorker

Does a fine job of ratcheting up the tension...The relentlessly entertaining Reacher format shows no sign of wearing out its welcome just yet.

Mail on Sunday

As well as romance, there's as usual plenty of fast-paced, punchy action and deceptively deft plotting.

Sunday Mirror

I was unable to put thebook down...a brilliantly crafted mystery and one of Child's best.

Huffington Post

Turns into a sinister tri-state conspiracy with a massive body count...a Reacher novel par excellence, fuelled by the terse diague and breakneck action sequences that make Lee Child so popular.

Sydney Morning Herald

No one writes more compelling thrillers than Child, who is at the top of his form with Make Me.

Chicago Tribune

A crack detective who’s tougher than the toughest guys in the army…at bottom he’s a knight errant or a one-man A Team...he also has a streak of learning...Make Me is a return to form.
