Jack Reacher, faces his most implacable enemy yet in the new thriller by the double no.1 bestseller Lee Child .
Lee Child is British, but after he was made redundant from his job in television, he moved with his family from Cumbria to the United States to start a new career as a writer of American thrillers. He now divides his time between France and New York. All his novels feature the maverick Jack Reacher, and all have been international bestsellers.
"Enhances his status as a mythic avenger...You'll be left with a thumping heart and a racing pulse but, be warned, Chapter 63 will give you nightmares." Evening Standard "Has the switchback plotting and frictionless prose that are Child's trademarks. Unlike most of the series, though, it's narrated by Reacher himself. His lone-wolf habits and brusque, technophobic decodings of the world are always a pleasure, though how he maintains fighting fitness on a diet of pancakes, bacon and coffee is one of the world's great mysteries." Guardian "Read this before you read any other new thriller, as the master of suspense and action is back on scorching form." Shortlist magazine 20090430
