The complete Jack Reacher short stories, published together for the first time, from the number one bestseller Lee Child.

Jack 'No Middle Name' Reacher, lone wolf, knight errant, ex military cop, lover of women, scourge of the wicked and righter of wrongs, is the most iconic hero for our age. This is the first time all Lee Child's shorter fiction featuring Jack Reacher has been collected into one volume. Read together, these twelve stories shed new light on Reacher’s past, illuminating how he grew up and developed into the wandering avenger who has captured the imagination of millions around the world.

The twelve stories include a brand new novella, Too Much Time.

The other stories in the collection are:

Second Son
James Penney's New Identity
Guy Walks Into a Bar
Deep Down, High Heat
Not a Drill
Small Wars

All of which have previously been published as ebook shorts.

Added to these is every other Reacher short story that Child has written:

Everyone Talks
Maybe They Have a Tradition
No Room at the Motel
The Picture of the Lonely Diner

Reviews

After 21 missions in 20 years no one can be in any doubt that messing up bad guys is what the ex-military policeman does best — and these 12 tall tales suggest he’s been doing it all his life... Lee Child, like his creation, always knows exactly what he’s doing — and he does it well. Time in his company is never wasted. The first three chapters of his next Reacher novel, The Midnight Line — due in November — leave you wanting more.

Mark Sanderson, Evening Standard

The Midnight Line...won't be published until early November. This collection of every short story Child has penned about the rootless Reacher will serve to keep any cravings at bay...True fans will love this.

Irish Independent

If you ever wonder about the past of Jack Reacher - the action hero whose adventures shift millions - then get this collection of short stories. Including a new novella, the clever, twisty tales reveal that even the 13-year-old Reacher was a force to be reckoned with.
