Jack Reacher, the popular drop-out renegade crusader for justice, returns in a brand-new thriller in Lee Child?s number-one bestselling series - across the Atlantic, to Paris, and then to London.
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 the CWA?s Diamond Dagger for a writer of an outstanding body of crime fiction, the International Thriller Writers? ThrillerMaster, and the Theakstons Old Peculier Outstanding Contribution to Crime Fiction Award.
"Consistently pulse-raising...an exhilarating ride...Personal
wrests back the sheer gusto of earlier novels; it's the best
Reacher adventure in some considerable time." * Independent *
"This is the 19th Jack Reacher novel. I've read all the others. If you haven't, start now. You can binge-read them all in three weeks. But then you will be sad. Because you'll have to wait for a year for the next one. They are blissfully pedantic whodunnits. And also seriously violent thrillers....[Child] is so good. He makes "literary" writing seem orotund...He generates relentless momentum...Child's dedication to suspense...approaches the Hitchcockian." * Guardian *
"Packed with arcane and fascinating detail...Child's almost trademarked and seriously addictive clipped prose and dialogue keeps Personal clipping along at breakneck pace with the tension ratcheting up satisfactorily to the inevitably bloody conclusion." * Irish Independent *
"Told in characteristic Child style - fast prose, smart dialogue, extraordinary detail - and with the hero in full revenge mode,it throbs with energy from the start...a pleasure to welcome him back to [Lee Child's] native land." * Daily Mail *
"He's a dangerous man to know but every year I am desperate to renew my acquaintance with the one and only Jack Reacher....Child brings it all together brilliantly. And often tersely...It ends in crunching violence - but Reacher readers queueing up for their annual fix expect nothing less." * Sun *
