Jack's back! In another taut, cool, sexy pageturner from the master, Lee Child.

Now filmed as the blockbuster movie 'Jack Reacher', starring Tom Cruise.Six shots. Five dead.

A heartland city thrown into terror. But within hours the cops have it solved. A slam-dunk case. Apart from one thing. The accused gunman refuses to talk except for a single phrase:

Get Jack Reacher for me.

Reacher lives off the grid. He's not looking for trouble. But sometimes trouble looks for him. What could connect the ex-military cop to this psychopathic killer?

Reviews

Jack Reacher is irresistible

Observer

Hot, indomitable... knockout

New York Times

The thing about Lee Child's books is that you can't put the damn things down

Independent on Sunday

Child's strengths are fast-moving dialogue and gripping action sequences ... The excitement lasts from the first to the final page

Evening Standard

The Jack Reacher series of thrillers...are all hugely exciting, and knowledgeable about weapons and technology. They exude a powerful sense of right and wrong ... We've seen him as a right of wrongs and always as God's gift to women

Literary Review

Lee Child is often mistaken for a US writer, so skilfully and enthusiastically has he embraced the idiom of the American thriller ... One of the genre's finest practitioners

Independent

Reacher sees justice done while kicking commendable amounts of ass ... Intricate plotting makes for an engrossing read

Arena

First-rate thriller, with the imperturbable Reacher meting out his brand of justice to the villains

Sunday Telegraph
