Reacher never lets you down! Now in paperback, action hero Jack Reacher is back, in a new chilling, deadly adventure.

Jack Reacher is having a bad day.
It would be a dumb idea to make it worse.
Reacher sees a West Point class ring in a pawn shop window. It’s tiny. It's a woman cadet’s graduation present to herself. Why would she give it up? Reacher was a West Pointer too, and he knows what she went through to get it.
All he wants is to find the woman.
He’ll have to go through bikers, cops, crooks, and low-life muscle.
If she’s ok, he’ll walk away. If she’s not … he’ll stop at nothing.
Best advice: stay out of his way.

Reviews

Marks a real departure for Lee Child, who homes in on two hot issues (US military veterans with mental or physical scars, and a related social plague currently in the news) ...Alongside this topicality is a poignancy that was lacking in earlier books.

John Dugdale, Sunday Times Thriller of the Year

Each year Lee Child comes up with another Reacher. Each year I lap it up. Love it...Best one for a while...there is something subversive as well as page-turning...The sentences are short, but that doesn't mean the thinking is small....I don't know another author so skilled at making me turn the page, at putting me in the thick of it all.

The Times

I just read the new Jack Reacher novel by Lee Child….It is as good as they always are. I read every single one.

Malcolm Gladwell

Addictive...Child's trademark staccato-style delivers all-action excitement as well as a sombre message about the hypocrisy of the US war on drugs.

Metro

An eccentric but winning blend of the serious and the playful, this modern western resembles a collaboration between the Coen brothers and Karl Ove Knausgaard.

Sunday TImes

The one that breaks your heart...Reacher has a reputation to live up to: drifter, loner, knuckles the size of walnuts, etc...[ yet has] more emotional heft than anything Child has written before.

Janet Maslin, New York Times

A timely, affecting, suspenseful and morally complex thriller. In fact, it’s one of the best thrillers I’ve read this year.

Washington Post

Lee Child is showing no sign of flagging with this latest outing....You'll read this one in a single evening.

Sunday Business Post

A contemporary version of the knight in shining armour: to Lee Child's many readers, Reacher is a mythic figure.

Literary Review

Lee Child is the master of plotting...full of action and adventure.. This is Child's most emotional book to date. There are issues concerning family loyalty,wounded veterans, disfigurement, the opioid explosion, and the habits of drug dealers...This is not just a good story; it is a story with a purpose and a message.

Extract

One


Jack Reacher and Michelle Chang spent three days in Milwaukee. On the fourth morning she was gone. Reacher came back to the room with coffee and found a note on his pillow. He had seen such notes before. They all said the same thing. Either directly or indirectly. Chang’s note was indirect. And more elegant than most. Not in terms of presentation. It was a ballpoint scrawl on motel notepaper gone wavy with damp. But elegant in terms of expression. She had used a simile, to explain and flatter and apologize all at once. She had written, You’re like New York City. I love to visit, but I could never live there.
