Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jack Reacher. Hero. Loner. Soldier. Soldier's son. An elite military cop, he was one of the army's brightest stars. But in every cop's life there is one case that changes everything. For Jack Reacher, this is that case.

New Year's Day, 1990. In a North Carolina motel, a two-star general is found dead. His briefcase is missing. Nobody knows what was in it. Within minutes Reacher has his orders: "Control the situation." Within hours the general's wife is murdered. Then the dominoes really start to fall.

Somewhere inside the vast worldwide fortress that is the U.S. Army, Reacher is being set up as a fall guy with the worst enemies a man can have. But Reacher won't quit. He's fighting a new kind of war — against an enemy he didn't know he had. And against a conspiracy more chilling, ingenious, and treacherous than anyone could have guessed.

Review:

"[A] fabulously suspenseful prequel....Child has turned away from formulaic high-jinks to explore his characters instead: The result? His best so far." Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)

Review:

"The Enemy is tight and effective, and it serves its purpose: to explain Reacher's military training and to show why it has made him such a smart strategist and cool customer." Janet Maslin, The New York Times

Review:

"Lee Child, considered by some to be the best thriller writer in the business, has created an alter ego in Jack Reacher...succeeds because we either want to be him, or to be with him when our back is against the wall." The Oregonian (Portland, OR)

Review:

"[H]old-your-breath action scenes....Combine that with finely textured relationships — always an extra dimension in this series — and you have a novel that takes Child in a new direction...but does so flawlessly." Booklist (Starred Review)
