From the number one bestseller: the coolest, sexiest, punch-packing Reacher thriller yet.

About the Author

Lee Child is one of the world's leading thriller writers. He was born in Coventry, raised in Birmingham, and now lives in New York. It is said one of his novels featuring his hero Jack Reacher is sold somewhere in the world every nine seconds. His books consistently achieve the number-one slot on bestseller lists around the world, 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. Jack Reacher, the first Jack Reacher movie starring Tom Cruise, was based on the novel One Shot, and the second is Jack Reacher: Never Go Back.

Reviews

As usual, veteran narrator Dick Hill does a masterful job of evoking world-weary investigator Jack Reacher, this time in the prequel to Child's bestselling series. In this installment, the author finally spells out the circumstances surrounding Reacher's departure from his job as a military cop: the investigation into the murder of a young woman in a small Mississippi community. As the truth slowly unfolds, Hill delivers a nuanced performance of a character he's voiced for some 14 years. While the introduction of a potential love interest spices up the homicide inquiry, Hill's rendition of her dialogue may remind some listeners of Dustin Hoffman's portrayal of Dorothy Michaels in Tootsie-and that takes some getting used to. Nonetheless, Hill's gifts as an actor are evident throughout, and he shines during the book's final confrontation in which Reacher explains how he put all the pieces together. A Delacorte hardcover.

Plenty of action....much more of a whodunit than anything Lee Child has previously written...The gripping plot and breathtaking violence ensure it is difficult to put down. * Evening Standard *
Jack Reacher has long since earned his prominent place in the pantheon of cool,smart-talking American heroes....Shakes up the status quo by delivering the Reacher creation myth...stealthily funny...this book is really about the man himself. -- Janet Maslin * New York Times *
Just when you thought it couldn't possibly get any better, Lee Child pulls Jack Reacher out of another hole and, bang, he produces nothing short of a thriller masterpiece...Here, we get what we've been waiting for...the story of how Reacher became Reacher. -- Henry Sutton * Mirror *
Child on top of his game. It could well be his best book yet...The paradox of Reacher is that he is both a great big grizzly bear of a fighter...and a thinker, both Schwarzenegger and Socrates. Make love and war is his credo. * Independent *
With its revelations and its bonk-fest, it's an unabashed fan-pleaser, but also a timely, reassuring wallow in the undiluted essence of Reacher. * Telegraph *
