Tie-in to the second Jack Reacher movie starring Tom Cruise, coming October 2016.
Lee Child is one of the world's leading thriller writers. He was born in Coventry, raised in Birmingham, and now lives in New York. It is said one of his novels featuring his hero Jack Reacher is sold somewhere in the world every nine seconds. His books consistently achieve the number-one slot on bestseller lists around the world and have sold over one hundred million copies. Two blockbusting Jack Reacher movies have been made so far. He is the recipient of many awards, most recently Author of the Year at the 2019 British Book Awards. He was appointed CBE in the 2019 Queen's Birthday Honours.
" He's such a fascinating character to me...he's a wish fulfilment
for people. Reacher is brutal. He's that guy whose eyeline you
don't want to be in. If you did something wrong and he's got his
eye on you, you're gonna lose." * Tom Cruise (in Empire) *
"This may well be the best of the bunch...some of the best, wiliest writing Child has ever done." * Scotland on Sunday *
"As always, Reacher's laidback style of narration belies a propulsive pace,although Never Go Back finds Reacher emotionally vulnerable for once, and a warmer, more satisfyingly empathic character for the experience." * Irish Times *
"Fast-paced, taut and punchy, fans will love this." * Sunday Mirror *
"The bone-crunching, joint-popping action is as technically precise and primevally satisfying as ever. The extra-lean prose is as ruthlessly linear as the plot...[However,]Lee Child proves he can write about emotions other than lust and anger and reveals his hero to be more than just a man of steel. Eighteen novels in, his franchise shows no sign of running out of steam." -- Mark Sanderson * Evening Standard *
