Publisher Comments:

Reacher is back! A Wanted Man is a new masterpiece of suspense—from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child.

 

Four people in a car, hoping to make Chicago by morning. One man driving, eyes on the road. Another man next to him, telling stories that don’t add up. A woman in the back, silent and worried. And next to her, a huge man with a broken nose, hitching a ride east to Virginia.

 

An hour behind them, a man lies stabbed to death in an old pumping station. He was seen going in with two others, but he never came out. He has been executed, the knife work professional, the killers vanished. Within minutes, the police are notified. Within hours, the FBI descends, laying claim to the victim without ever saying who he was or why he was there.

 

All Reacher wanted was a ride to Virginia. All he did was stick out his thumb. But he soon discovers he has hitched more than a ride. He has tied himself to a massive conspiracy that makes him a threat—to both sides at once.

 

In Lee Child’s white-hot thriller, nothing is what it seems, and nobody is telling the truth. As the tension rises, the twists come fast and furious, keeping readers guessing and gasping until the explosive finale.

 

Praise for #1 bestselling author Lee Child and his Reacher series

 

“Child is a superb craftsman of suspense.”—Entertainment Weekly

 

“The truth about Reacher gets better and better.”—Janet Maslin, The New York Times

 

“Implausible, irresistible Reacher remains just about the best butt-kicker in thriller-lit.”—Kirkus Reviews

 

“Like his hero Jack Reacher, Lee Child seems to make no wrong steps.”—Associated Press

 

“Lee Child [is] the current poster-boy of American crime fiction.”—Los Angeles Times

 

“Indisputably the best escape artist in this escapist genre.”—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times

 

“Jack Reacher is much more like the heir to the Op and Marlowe than Spenser ever was.”—Esquire

Review:

"In Child's latest Reacher novel, his ex-army hero is hitchhiking to Virginia, battered but unbowed, when he's picked up by a car carrying three men and a woman. Much of the book takes place in that car, with the always-suspicious Reacher doing a lot of sleuthing into the backgrounds of his mysterious fellow passengers. His suspicions are, of course, well founded. The four are connected to at least one murder. Before too long, Reacher has switched vehicles, now driving with a beautiful FBI agent and following his former companions into the heart of a seemingly inscrutable conspiracy. Some listeners may find the road trip a little meandering and the arbitrary death of a likeable character off-putting, but none should have any complaints about narrator Dick Hill's vigorous, sardonic performance in this audio edition. His reading is perfectly tuned to Child's hardboiled prose, and the narrator maintains an energy level that's high enough to carry the listener past some of the book's slower passages. Of special note is Hill's ability to pick just the right word to linger on, nicely capturing Reacher's attitude, be it one of distrust, sarcasm, anger, or, in rare instances, warmth.
