"Brings to mind the knight-errant adventures of John D. McDonald's Travis McGee." —Booklist
“Child grabs hold with the first page and won't let go until the finish. This is pulse-pounding suspense, and Child hardly misses a beat.”—The Arizona Daily Star
“Good thrillers exist in a class of their own. The point of such a book is total escape and Tripwire fills the bill. A bang-up finale which makes the reader sit back and gasp with both wonder and understanding.”—The Denver Post
“Not only bang-on suspense but an insightful look into how humans work.”—Houston Chronicle
“A stylish thriller as complex and disturbing as its hero.”—Stephen White
“A tightly-drawn and swift thriller that gives new meaning to what a page-turner should be.”—Michael Connelly
“Page for page, there's probably more fisticuffs in a Lee Child thriller than anywhere else.”—Chicago Tribune
“When you put a good villain together with a great hero like Jack Reacher...the result is a thriller good to the last drop. (Child) does a great job of balancing good and evil, and certainly Hobie ranks up there with some of the most memorable villains.”—The Orlando Sentinel
