The Enemy

(Jack Reacher 8)




Takes cult hero Jack Reacher back in time, to his younger days as a Military Policeman in the US Army.

New Year's Day, 1990.

A soldier is found dead in a sleazy motel bed. Jack Reacher is the officer on duty. The soldier turns out to be a two-star general. The situation is bad enough, then Reacher finds the general's wife.

This stomach-churning thriller turns back the clock to a younger Reacher, in dogtags. A Reacher who still believes in the service. A Reacher who imposes army discipline. Even if only in his own pragmatic way...

Praise for The Enemy

'Complex, classy crime'

Mirror

'One of the best writers in this genre ... And nobody does it better'

The Sunday Telegraph

'The thing about Lee Child's books is that you can't put the damn things down... there's something about his writing that's addictive. The Enemy is no exception...Superb'

'Lee Child fans will love this prequel to the bestselling Jack Reacher novels. At last Child shares the events that shaped the maverick hero of his last six novels into an ass-kicking, irreverent good guy. If you're one of the few people who haven't sampled the sublime thrill of a Child novel, this blast from the past is the best place to start'

An unforgettable hero...may be the best Reacher book yet.

Newsweek

Packs a Dirty Harry wallop...Lean, dynamic storytelling.

New York Times

Possibly Child's best Reacher novel yet.

Yorkshire Post

Another great book for him, gives us hero Jack Reacher's back-story. Hurrah

Kate Atkinson, Daily Telegraph

'Lee Child writes a good story, twisting it into labyrinthine folds and keeping his readers guessing right to the end. He has obviously done his research'
