LEE CHILD has answered the Booktopia Book Guru’s Ten Terrifying Questions. Click here to read LEE’s answers…
A lone gunman unleashes pandemonium when he shoots into a crowd of people in a public plaza in Indiana. Five people are killed in cold blood, shot through the head.
But he leaves a perfect trail of evidence behind him, and soon the local police chief tracks him down. After his arrest, the shooter's only words are, 'Get Jack Reacher for me.' What could possibly connect this psychopath and the wandering dropout ex-army cop?
Critics call Lee Child's thriller series 'addictive', so here is another, much-longed for, Reacher fix.
About the Author
LEE CHILD is British but moved with his family from Cumbria to the United States to start a new career as an American thriller writer. His first novel, Killing Floor, won the Anthony Award, and his second, Die Trying, won W H Smith's Thumping Good Read Award.
He lives just outside New York City, with his American wife, Jane. They have a grown-up daughter, Ruth, and a small dog called Jenny. Lee fills his spare time with music, reading, and the New York Yankees. All his thrillers feature Jack Reacher, the former US military cop and maverick drifter, and all have been bestsellers. He likes to travel, for vacations, but especially on promotion tours so he can meet his readers, to whom he is eternally grateful.

Fantastic read that keep you enthralled throughout. Certainly read the book before watching the film
"'Jack Reacher is irresistible.'" Observer "'Hot, indomitable... knockout.'" New York Times "'The thing about Lee Child's books is that you can't put the damn things down.'" Independent on Sunday "Child's strengths are fast-moving dialogue and gripping action sequences ... The excitement lasts from the first to the final page" EVENING STANDARD "The Jack Reacher series of thrillers...are all hugely exciting, and knowledgeable about weapons and technology. They exude a powerful sense of right and wrong ... We've seen him as a right of wrongs and always as God's gift to women." Literary Review
