Book Description

Two small towns in Colorado: Hope and Despair. Between them, nothing but twelve miles of empty road. Jack Reacher can't find a ride, so he walks.

All he wants is a cup of coffee.

What he gets are four redneck deputies who want to run him out of town. Mistake. They're picking on the wrong guy. Jack Reacher is a big man, and he's in shape. No job, no address, no baggage. Nothing, except bloody-minded curiosity. What is the secret the locals seem so keen to hide?

A hard man is good to find. Ex-military cop Reacher is today's most addictive hero. Now he pulls on a tiny loose thread, to unravel conspiracies that expose the most shocking truths.

Because, after all, Jack Reacher has nothing to lose.

"A cert to be a number one bestseller...A version of western, of course: the drifter who comes to town, sorts out the bad guys, and moves on. ..He makes what he does seem simple. If it is, though, it's strange that nobody else has managed it so well." -- David Sexton Evening Standard "Follows in the great Philip Marlowe pulp tradition,nuanced with a dash of Rambo and Bruce Willis...Reacher is a moody, modern outsider figure, one of the great antiheroes...a liberal intellectual with machismo, and arms the size of Popeye's." Independent "Classic Child...brilliantly paced ... his tough-but-fair creation, Jack Reacher, both a man's man and a ladies' man, proves once again that he's also his own man. And no one is going to get in his way." Mirror "Slots a series of bone-crunching brawls into a surprisingly sinuous and zeitgeisty plot...delivers emotional depth, and Reacher's bare-knuckle sleuthing certainly keeps the adrenalin up." Financial Times "A high-testosterone adventure with a thoughtful nod to what is going on in Iraq...a page turner. Thrilling." Observer

Lee Child

Lee Child was born in 1954 in Coventry, England, but spent his formative years in the nearby city of Birmingham. By coincidence he won a scholarship to the same high school that JRR Tolkien had attended. He went to law school in Sheffield, England, and after part-time work in the theatre he joined Granada Television in Manchester for what turned out to be an eighteen-year career as a presentation director during British TV's "golden age." During his tenure his company made Brideshead Revisited, The Jewel in the Crown, Prime Suspect, and Cracker.

But he was fired in 1995 at the age of 40 as a result of corporate restructuring. Always a voracious reader, he decided to see an opportunity where others might have seen a crisis and bought six dollars' worth of paper and pencils and sat down to write a book, Killing Floor, the first in the Jack Reacher series. Killing Floor was an immediate success and launched the series which has grown in sales and impact with every new instalment.

Lee has three homes - an apartment in Manhattan, a country house in the south of France, and whatever air-plane cabin he happens to be in while travelling between the two. In the US he drives a supercharged Jaguar, which was built in Jaguar's Browns Lane plant, thirty yards from the hospital in which he was born.

Lee spends his spare time reading, listening to music, and watching the Yankees, Aston Villa, or Marseilles soccer. He is married with a grown-up daughter. He is tall and slim, despite an appalling diet and a refusal to exercise.
