Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Susan Mark, the fifth passenger, had a big secret, and her plain little life was being watched in Washington, and California, and Afghanistan — by dozens of people with one thing in common: they're all lying to Reacher. A little. A lot. Or just enough to get him killed.

A race has begun through the streets of Manhattan, a maze crowded with violent, skilled soldiers on all sides of a shadow war. For Jack Reacher, a man who trusts no one and likes it that way, the finish line comes when you finally get face-to-face and look your worst enemy in the eye.

Review:

"All good thriller writers know how to build suspense and keep the pages turning, but only better ones deliver tight plots as well, and only the best allow the reader to match wits with both the hero and the author. Bestseller Child does all of that in spades in his 13th Jack Reacher adventure (after Nothing to Lose). Early one morning on a nearly empty Manhattan subway car, the former army MP notices a woman passenger he suspects is a suicide bomber. The deadly result of his confronting her puts him on a trail leading back to the Soviet war in Afghanistan in the 1980s and forward to the war on terrorism. Reacher finds a bit of help among the authorities demanding answers from him, like the NYPD and the FBI, as well as threats and intimidation. And then there are the real bad guys that the old pro must track down and eliminate. Child sets things up subtly and ingeniously, then lets Reacher use both strength and guile to find his way to the exciting climax." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"We're inside the tense, coolly professional skull of a lone good guy (with a few surprises) wearing white boxer shorts (another important plot detail!) at high noon. And it is a lot of fun." Philadelphia Inquirer

Review:

"The opening of Gone Tomorrow is one of the most suspenseful sequences Child has written yet....Reading this book is like being tickled with a feather held by an iron fist." Newsday

Review:

"Child grounds his hero's hard body and hard-drive brain in believable detail....If you're a reader whose pulse pounds when a top-notch thriller writer hits his stride, and if you're not afraid to watch the bullet hit its target, then it's a safe bet that you're already a Lee Child fan." Booklist (starred review)

Review:

"[T]he most provocative and thrilling [Reacher novel] yet....Rising suspense and swift pacing are integral to a thriller and Child is a master at both, never sacrificing great storytelling or character development for thrills." Minneapolis Star Tribune

Review:

"No one kicks butt as entertainingly as Reacher." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"As the dead and injured pile up, the ever-resourceful and vengeful Reacher takes on nearly a score of the bad guys in an exciting climax to an enthralling book that is as satisfying as its predecessors. Highly recommended." Library Journal (starred review)

Review:

"Child's writing is both propulsive and remarkably error-free, and he's expert at ratcheting up the tension while dispensing all manner of specific information." Los Angeles Times

Synopsis:

New York Times-bestselling author Child returns with his latest "explosive and nearly impossible to put down" (People) thriller. Jack Reacher is back and he's been cast as a suspect on the world's biggest stage: New York City.
