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

Review:

"Do yourself a favor and get hooked on this series." Cleveland Plain Dealer

Synopsis:

New York Times-bestselling author Lee Child's latest thriller is a ticking time bomb of suspense that builds electric tension on every page. A bus accident lands Jack Reacher in a small South Dakota town, where a single witness is the only hope police have to convict a brutal crime ring. Reacher is enlisted to protect the witness against all comers.

Another excellent Reacher adventure. As always, the suspense is taut and the story is relentless. Reacher is resourceful as always, the puzzles are right there in the open (I was half a step ahead of Reacher in the beginning, then half a step behind), and the action is first-rate. Child does a great job of setting the "ground rules" for each Reacher story, and the ground rules are never better than here. The ending is certainly unexpected, although I think I know where it will go in his next book.

I've reviewed Child before. If you weren't convinced by me, would Stephen King's endorsement do anything for you?
