Six shots. Five dead.
A heartland city thrown into terror. But within hours the cops have it solved. A slam-dunk case. Apart from one thing.
The accused gunman refuses to talk except for a single phrase: Get Jack Reacher for me. Reacher lives off the grid. He's not looking for trouble. But sometimes trouble looks for him.
What could connect the ex-military cop to this psychopathic killer?
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.

Comments about One Shot:
Only thing I didn't like about this particular book is that I already own it with a different front cover on and that its now been made into a movie starring Tom Cruise I feel is betraying the readers. Otherwise as always Lee Child is a great author
"'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 "Lee Child is often mistaken for a US writer, so skilfully and enthusiastically has he embraced the idiom of the American thriller ... One of the genre's finest practitioners." Independent "The Jack Reacher series... all hugely exciting, and knowledgeable about weapons and technology. They exude a powerful sense of right and wrong ... We've seen him as a righter of wrongs and always as God's gift to women." Literary Review
