The new Lee Child is always one of the most explosive highlights of the publishing year, and this pacy, nailbiting new Jack Reacher thriller is sure to be one of his most addictive yet.
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 the CWA's Diamond Dagger for a writer of an outstanding body of crime fiction, the International Thriller Writers' ThrillerMaster, and the Theakstons Old Peculier Outstanding Contribution to Crime Fiction Award.
"Child's best for some time: an enhancement of the old formula, with detective-story and romcom elements (even sly humour) on top of the psychological duels and set-piece violence." Sunday Times "Typically blunt and energetic...precisely judged." Independent "Lee Child's Reacher series has hit Book No. 20 with a resounding peal of wisecracking glee ("Are you going to be a problem?" "I'm already a problem. The question is, what are you going to do about it?"). Everything about it...is as strong as ever...Make Me is a hot one." -- Janet Maslin New York Times "Breathless and bloody...You can't help lapping it up." Evening Standard "The fights are convincing and the dialogue is as brilliant as always." Literary Review
