About the Author

Lee Child is one of the world's leading thriller writers. He was born in Coventry, raised in Birmingham, and now lives in New York. It is said one of his novels featuring his hero Jack Reacher is sold somewhere in the world every nine seconds. His books consistently achieve the number-one slot on bestseller lists around the world, and are published in over one hundred territories. He is the recipient of many prizes, most recently the CWA's Diamond Dagger for a writer of an outstanding body of crime fiction. Jack Reacher, the first Jack Reacher movie starring Tom Cruise, was based on the novel One Shot, and the second is Jack Reacher: Never Go Back.

Reviews

Jack Reacher is in both the wrong and the right place at the same time when FBI Special Agent and daughter of the chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Holly Johnson is abducted from a Chicago street. It is the wrong place because Reacher, a former army major drifting around the country, is kidnapped as well. It is the right place because only he has the instincts to foil the complex, deadly plan of the kidnappers, a Montana militia group headed by a charismatic, brilliant, but psychotic leader. Child's tale, very well read by Dick Hill, engrossingly portrays Reacher's efforts to manipulate the captors; the behind-the-scenes maneuvering of the FBI, the army, and the White House; and the many unexpected roadblocks thrown in his path. Child devotes too much time, however, to the predictable rantings of the militia. Recommended for public libraries.‘Michael Adams, CUNY Graduate Ctr., New York

"'Jack Reacher is a wonderfully epic hero; tough, taciturn, yet vulnerable... Irresistible.'" * People *
"'Reacher combines the physique of the Commando-period Schwarzenegger with the analytical brilliance of Sherlock Holmes.'" * Himself Magazine *
"'The taut plot, set firmly in headline territory, lays bare the world of the rabid, worm-like militias crawling in the political underbelly of America... This is an action adventure that never gives you a moment's peace and quiet - an excellent read.'" * Publishing News *
"'Cunning and explosive...A thumping good read'" * Time Out *
"A skilled, smart, violent page-turner" * Daily Express *
