About the Author
Lee Child is one of the world's leading thriller writers. It is said one of his novels featuring his hero Jack Reacher is sold somewhere in the world every twenty seconds. His books consistently achieve the number-one slot in hardback and paperback on bestseller lists on both sides of the Atlantic, and are published in over one hundred territories. He is the recipient of many prizes, most recently the CWA's Diamond Dagger for a writer of an outstanding body of crime fiction. All his thrillers have been optioned for major motion pictures, the first of which, Jack Reacher, was based on the novel One Shot, and the second, for release in October 2016, will be based on Never Go Back. He was born in Coventry, brought up in Birmingham, and now lives in New York.
Winner of the prestigious Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year prize, and chosen by the Sunday Times as one of the 50 best crime/thrillers of the last five years. Starring today's most admired action hero, the gallant and enigmatic loner Jack Reacher.
"Child has somehow forged that magical grail: a new and believable hero. Reacher is strong, tall, principled and a quiet master in unarmed combat. But he's also a wizard at determining likelihoods, at extrapolating miniscule details and thus forming chains of inferred logic... celebrate the achievement of giving us addicts a new and mesmerising fix, when we thought all the heroes had been written" -- Euan Ferguson Observer "It is always a pleasure to read another Jack Reacher novel. A kind of highlight of the year, really. There is only one downside. It's all the other people hanging around your house saying things like, "Oy! Haven't you finished with the Reacher yet?" -- Andy Martin Independent "Reacher is an iconic modern thriller hero: the ultimate loner... won't disappoint the British-born Child's millions of fans... Fast, compelling and with that nugget of poignancy that sets the hero apart" Daily Mail "Explodes into one of the best thrillers I've read for ages. Lee Child is a Brit who has managed to becomes more American than most US authors... 61 Hours is destined to do big things... Superb stuff!" Independent on Sunday "This is the first of Lee Child's popular Jack Reacher novels I've read. I'd assumed they were merely the macho adventures of a boneheaded lone wolf: lots of guns and explosions and little to occupy the mind. Well, I was wrong: there's also an abundance of intelligence and surprise. 61 Hours is a first-class thriller... Child delivers it brilliantly" Mail on Sunday
