Reviews

After 21 missions in 20 years no one can be in any doubt that messing up bad guys is what the ex-military policeman does best — and these 12 tall tales suggest he’s been doing it all his life... Lee Child, like his creation, always knows exactly what he’s doing — and he does it well. Time in his company is never wasted. The first three chapters of his next Reacher novel, The Midnight Line — due in November — leave you wanting more.

Mark Sanderson, Evening Standard

The Midnight Line...won't be published until early November. This collection of every short story Child has penned about the rootless Reacher will serve to keep any cravings at bay...True fans will love this.
