Jack Reacher is back!

Jack Reacher – six foot five and dangerous.Adrift in the hellish heat of Texas.Moving like a shark in the water.Looking for a lift through the vast empty landscape.

A Cadillac stops.A ride, but with a hitch.A pretty young woman, alone.Her husband’s in jail.When he comes out, he’s going to kill her.

Her family’s hostile, she can’t trust the cops, and lawyers won’t help.Reacher is her last option.Will this be the first time he says no - to a lady in distress?


'In the space of less than five years, Child has established himself as one of Britain's most successful commercial novelists...Complete with crackling fast dialogue, an edgy ambivalent plot, and the capacity to make his readers turn the page, this feels like Child's breakthrough book into the mega-sellers. He is that good.'

Daily Mail

'Reacher is a hero in the old Wild West stle: a fearless and capable loner, who lives by his own set of morals and is proud never to have killed a man who didn't deserve it...The author is in complete control of his complicated plot and has produced another real pageturner'

Sunday Telegraph

'Plenty of twists and plenty of excitement...another real page-turner'

Sunday Telegraph

'If you like thrillers of the bang-wallop variety, with a nice bit of plotting thrown in, this is the one for you'

Irish Times

'Big, bruising actioner...Child's great strength lies in spelling out exactly how explosive things are made to happen...Cathartic stuff, expertly delivered'

Literary Review

'Gritty stuff with a high body count and intricate plotting that keeps the pages turning'

Irish Independent

'A taut thriller by a British writer who handles the American suspense novel well'

Yorkshire Gazette & Herald

The British émigré Lee Child has become more American than the natives...A well-woven tale of dirt and duplicity with engaging characters...Child's character is a classic hero
