Publisher Comments:

Jack Reacher is back.

The countdown has begun. Get ready for the most exciting 61 hours of your life. #1 New York Times-bestselling author Lee Child's latest thriller is a ticking time bomb of suspense that builds electric tension on every page.

Sixty-one hours. Not a minute to spare.

A tour bus crashes in a savage snowstorm and lands Jack Reacher in the middle of a deadly confrontation. In nearby Bolton, South Dakota, one brave woman is standing up for justice in a small town threatened by sinister forces. If she's going to live long enough to testify, she'll need help. Because a killer is coming to Bolton, a coldly proficient assassin who never misses.

Reacher's original plan was to keep on moving. But the next 61 hours will change everything. The secrets are deadlier and his enemies are stronger than he could have guessed — but so is the woman whose life he'll risk his own to save.

In 61 Hours, Lee Child has written a showdown thriller with an explosive ending that readers will talk about for a long time to come.

Review:

"After a brief stop in New York City (Gone Tomorrow), Jack Reacher is back in his element — Smalltown, U.S.A. — in bestseller Child's fine 14th thriller to feature the roving ex-military cop. When a tour bus on which he bummed a ride skids off the road and crashes, Reacher finds himself in Bolton, S.Dak., a tiny burg with big problems. A highly sophisticated methamphetamine lab run by a vicious Mexican drug cartel has begun operating outside town at an abandoned military facility. After figuring out the snow-bound, marooned Reacher's smart, great with weapons, and capable of tapping military intelligence, the helpless local cops enlist his assistance, and, as always, he displays plenty of derring-do, mental acuity, and good old-fashioned decency. While the action is slower than usual, series fans will appreciate some new insights that Child provides into his hero's psyche and background as well as a cliffhanger ending. Author tour. (May)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"Coming off Gone Tomorrow (2009), one of the very best among his 13 high-octane thrillers, Child keeps his foot hard on the throttle....Even without the apparently game-changing finale, this is Child in top form, but isn't he always?" Booklist (starred review)

Review:

"Child's protagonist is a wandering knight who always finds trouble and inevitably solves it, with satisfying violence. As usual, Child's writing is superb. Not only is this thriller believable, but the descriptions of the blizzard will make readers want to hug their furnaces. Fast paced and exciting, this is highly recommended for thriller fans." Library Journal (starred review)

Review:

"Child is a superb craftsman of suspense, juggling several plots and keeping his herrings well-rouged....Best of all, this is a rare series book that reads like a stand-alone. Everything you need to know about Jack Reacher is contained within its pages. And chances are you'll want to seek out other Reacher adventures the moment you finish. (Grade: A-)" Entertainment Weekly

Review:

"What heats 61 Hours to the boiling point is Mr. Child's decision to defy his own conventions. In the interests of pure gamesmanship he seems hellbent on doing everything differently this time....The title countdown in 61 Hours is such a hackneyed device that it has no business working so well. But it does work, thanks to Mr. Child's vigorous surge of reinvention." Janet Maslin, The New York Times

Synopsis:

A bus crashes in a savage snowstorm and lands Jack Reacher in the middle of a deadly confrontation. In nearby Bolton, South Dakota, one brave woman is standing up for justice in a small town threatened by sinister forces. If she's going to live long enough to testify, she'll need help. Because a killer is coming to Bolton, a coldly proficient assassin who never misses.

Lisa Combs, October 11, 2010 (view all comments by Lisa Combs)
Lee Child has done it again. I read reviews by readers saying "it's the best book I've ever read" and I wonder what they have read to make a delcaration of that magnitude. I have read Michner, Stephen Hunter, Greg Bear and Ben Bova for science fiction, Outlander series by Gabaldon. I read and enjoyed Follett's Pillars and World Without End. I read Harry Potter and a long list of classics. I read a wide range of genres and auathors. I picked up the first Lee Child novel while waiting for the next Stephen Hunter. Both my husband Ihave read all of Lee Child since. This is one not to be missed.

Here, Lee Child puts his reader into the situation of his characters complete with the need of covering cold feet (in Florida) becasue the stroy takes place in a blizzard in Dakota. The protagonist is pushed in his skills by strong antagonists. Treacher has to beat the clock in this episode to be sure a witness is not compromised. Go on this wild time bomb of a thriller with Treacher and when you think you know what happens be prepared....
