Once in a blue moon, things turn out just right- the new Jack Reacher, the thriller hero we can't get enough of.
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 have sold over one hundred million copies. Two blockbusting Jack Reacher movies have been made so far. He is the recipient of many awards, most recently Author of the Year at the 2019 British Book Awards. He was appointed CBE in the 2019 Queen's Birthday Honours.
"It is tremendously comforting to be in the hands of Child and his
hero - a good man who we know will save the day in the end before
moving on, toothbrush in pocket, "just the clothes on his back. No
particular place to go, and all the time in the world to get
there."" * Observer *
"Lee Child is the absolute master of the story of a lone stranger arriving in town to save the innocent, and this is one of the best of his series...as always, the violence is ferocious and fast-moving. Anyone feeling hard done by or facing insuperable odds will be comforted by this novel, which is also the best advertisement for the NHS I have ever seen." * Literary Review *
