An introduction to Lee Child’s vigilante hero.

With more than 20 books in Lee Child's highly successful Jack Reacher series, it might seem a daunting prospect to come in late. But do you necessarily have to start at the beginning? Which book is the first one? And which books fit together? We’re here to help bring some clarity…

We are first introduced to Jack Reacher in Killing Floor. He’s a loner who used to be in the military, dangerous and unattainable, and the series follows his exploits all across America and occasionally into other countries.

While the first book is so good that it seems a shame to start anywhere else, this is a series you can dip into and out of at different stages, because there’s always one constant: Jack Reacher.
