You do not mess with Reacher, in Lee Child’s irresistible new No.1 bestseller.

You DO NOT MESS with the Special Investigators!

The events of 9/11 changed Jack Reacher’s drifter life in a practical way. In addition to his folding toothbrush, he now needs to carry photo ID to get around. Yet he is still as close to untraceable as a human being in America can get.

So when a member of his old Army unit manages to get a message to him, he knows it has to be deadly serious. The Special Investigators always watched each other’s backs. Now Reacher must put the old unit back together. Someone has killed one of them, and he can’t let that go.

Reviews

The invicible Reacher is as irresistible as ever.

Sunday Telegraph

One of the truly memorable tough-guy heroes in recent fiction.

Jack Reacher has the manliness of John Wayne, the coping skills of Jack Bauer, the fieldcraft of John Rambo and the coolness of Dirty Harry.

Sunday Times

[Reacher] has long since gained mythical status...storytelling of the highest order: lean, laconic, laced with tension.

Evening Standard

Reacher is one of those characters who is admired by his male readers and lusted after by his female ones in equal measure . . . Child's tough-as-nails protagonist has become one of the most appealing of contemporary heroes.

Daily Express

Almost overnight, British author Lee Child created one of the world's most enduring and popular fiction characters in Jack Reacher . . . Child is a great storyteller . . . the reader never feels conned . . . Another sure-fire hit.

Daily Mirror

Forget the A-team. If you're in a fix, and you want help, you need Jack Reacher....the twists come thick and fast, the false trails are cleverly laid and the surprise developments are genuinely unexpected...Child, as always, delivers.

Yorkshire Evening Post

Perhaps there are action-lit writers more recognizable than Child, but the bet is that none of them will turn in a tighter-plotted, richer-peopled, faster-paced page-turner this year.

Kirkus - starred review

As always, the action is intense, the pace unrelenting, and the violence unforgiving. Child remains the reigning master at combining breakneck yet brilliantly constructed plotting with characters who continually surprise us with their depth.
