If you don't read Reacher, you don't know Jack. So, dive headfirst into this taut and brutal tale of hero Jack Reacher — a lone drifter, a trained killer, a man of justice — as he rights wrongs and defends the helpless. It's author Lee Child's best action/thriller to date, and maybe the best page-turner of 2003 (finally in paperback). Don't miss it.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The ultimate loner.

An elite ex-military cop who left the service years ago, he's moved from place to place?without family...without possessions...without commitments.

And without fear. Which is good, because trouble — big, violent, complicated trouble — finds Reacher wherever he goes. And when trouble finds him, Reacher does not quit, not once...not ever.

But some unfinished business has now found Reacher. And Reacher is a man who hates unfinished business.

Ten years ago, a key investigation went sour and someone got away with murder. Now a chance encounter brings it all back. Now Reacher sees his one last shot. Some would call it vengeance. Some would call it redemption. Reacher would call it...justice.

Review:

"[R]eaders will be hard-pressed to find a more engaging thriller this spring season....Any thriller fan who has yet to read Lee Child should start now." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Child deserves to be galloped through because his writing is exuberant, ebullient and exciting." Los Angeles Times

Review:

"Wily plotting, swift pacing, mordant wit: Child is one skillful writer." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

Child's seventh novel featuring his utterly unique hero, ex-Army cop Jack Reacher, is now in paperback. This time Reacher goes undercover to investigate the disappearance of a federal agent from a drug dealer's home.

Addy, June 25, 2012 (view all comments by Addy)
This book hooked me right from the beginning, which needless to say is not an easy task. Reacher sees a potential kidnapping taking place and in typical Jack Reacher fashion decides to intervene, which has some completely un-thought of consequences. It's a perfect example of an edge of the seat thriller!!

The best part was that this book keeps you so engaged that it's a surprise to know you've reached the last page. The "Bad Guys" present a formidable challenge to Reacher. He doesn't seem quite so invincible in this book, which only makes the story better. Must read...

After leaving the Army, Reacher has been drifting around the United States, living off savings, and never staying in one place too long. This book finds him finishing unsettled business from his military days: the DEA asks him to help them deal with a man who is both a traitor and a murderer. Reacher is glad to assist, since this one's personal. Overall, a great read.
