Product description

Review

"Child is one writer who should never be taken for granted."--The New York Times Book Review

"[Lee Child] shows no signs of slowing down. . . . Reacher is a man for whom the phrase moral compass was invented: His code determines his direction. . . . You need Jack Reacher."--The Atlantic

"Superb . . . Child neatly interweaves multiple narratives, ratchets up the suspense (the reveal of the motel plot is delicious), and delivers a powerful, satisfying denouement. Fans will enjoy learning more of this enduring character's roots, and Child's spare prose continues to set a very high bar."--Publishers Weekly (boxed and starred review)

"Another first-class entry in a series that continues to set the gold standard for aspiring thriller authors."--Booklist (starred review)

"With his usual flair for succinctness and eye for detail, Child creates another rollicking Reacher road trip that will please fans and newcomers alike."--Library Journal (starred review)

"Cerebral . . . One doesn't want Mr. Child's storytelling to end. . . . Get your copy soon before Past Tense sells out. Then enjoy the ride."--New York Journal of Books

"The way everything winds up for all the participants shows a satisfying generosity of storytelling spirit."--Kirkus Reviews

Praise for the Jack Reacher series

"The truth about Reacher gets better and better. . . . This series [is] utterly addictive."--Janet Maslin, The New York Times

"Jack Reacher is today's James Bond, a thriller hero we can't get enough of. I read every one as soon as it appears."
--Ken Follett

"Reacher is the stuff of myth. . . . One of this century's most original, tantalizing pop-fiction heroes."--The Washington Post

"I'm a fan."--James Patterson

"The Reacher novels are easily the best thriller series going."--NPR

"Reacher is a man for whom the phrase moral compass was invented: His code determines his direction. . . . You need Jack Reacher."--The Atlantic

"I pick up Jack Reacher when I'm in the mood for someone big to solve my problems."--Patricia Cornwell

"[A] feverishly thrilling series . . . You can always count on furious action."--Miami Herald
