Praise for The Visitor

“'Reacher is as dyed-in-the-wool an American action man as Hollywood could hope for...manages that tough trick of seeming at once battle-hardened, footloose, sexy and compassionate: the sort of ladies' man that Peter Millar, The Times”

The Times

“'Within a short space of time, Child has gleaned enviable recognition for his tautly written thrillers...This tale will ensure that many a train stop is missed'”

The Good Book Guide

“'In three novels Lee Child has established a franchise with his maverick drifter, the ex-US military cop Jack Reacher, and shown that, for an Englishman, he can produce passable American. His fourth, The Visitor, offers an efficient mix of hard-boiled style with lots of lip and a revivial of the classic locked-room mystery...Tight plotting, pace and high mileage'”

Guardian

“'Relentlessly fast-paced and beautifully structured...Amply fulfils the promise of its predecessors. Reacher is the sort of hero no woman could help falling for, and he looks destined to have a very long life'”

Daily Mail

“'A thumping good read...This is an excellent thriller of the Patricia Cornwell variety. Gripping and well-constructed...Impossible to put down'”

Daily Express

“'Lee Child writes edgy American thrillers to rival the likes of Thomas Harris and John Grisham, but the remarkable thing about Child is that he was born in the Midlands and until recently lived in picturesque Cumbria...A highly-polished thriller that's well thought out, totally convincing and, well, thrilling. You'll bomb through it in no time and enjoy every second'”

The Mirror

“'Lee Child's remorselessly perverse ingenuity is working overtime in this, his fourth...A book this driven by the central character's lack of aggression ought not to be quite as smart as this is, or quite as likeable - Lee Child's clever formula is to make that paradox work'”

Amazon.co.uk

“'Once again, terrific stuff'”

Independent on Sunday

“'A serial-killer thriller with a traditional puzzle at its heart...A great page turner'”
