Reviews

'Jack Reacher is irresistible.'

Observer

'Hot, indomitable... knockout.'

New York Times

'The thing about Lee Child's books is that you can't put the damn things down.'

Independent on Sunday

Child's strengths are fast-moving dialogue and gripping action sequences ... The excitement lasts from the first to the final page

EVENING STANDARD

The Jack Reacher series of thrillers...are all hugely exciting, and knowledgeable about weapons and technology. They exude a powerful sense of right and wrong ... We've seen him as a right of wrongs and always as God's gift to women.

Literary Review

Lee Child is often mistaken for a US writer, so skilfully and enthusiastically has he embraced the idiom of the American thriller ... One of the genre's finest practitioners.

Independent

Reacher sees justice done while kicking commendable amounts of ass ... Intricate plotting makes for an engrossing read.

Arena

First-rate thriller, with the imperturbable Reacher meting out his brand of justice to the villains.

Sunday Telegraph
