'There's only one Jack Reacher. Accept no substitutes' Mick Herron
'The thing about Lee Child's books is that you can't put the damn things down. . .there's something about his writing that's addictive. The Enemy is no exception. . .Superb.' Independent on Sunday
North Carolina. New Year's Day, 1990. A soldier is found dead in a sleazy motel bed.
Jack Reacher is the officer on duty. The soldier turns out to be a two-star general.
The situation is bad enough, then Reacher finds the body of the general's wife.
This stomach-churning thriller turns back the clock to a younger Reacher, in dogtags. A Reacher who still believes in the service. A Reacher who imposes army discipline. Even if only in his own pragmatic way...
Although the Jack Reacher novels can be read in any order, The Enemy is 8th in the series.
And be sure not to miss Reacher's newest adventure, no.26, Better off Dead! ***OUT NOW***
"Child's best for some time...with detective-story and romcom elements (even sly humour) on top of the psychological duels and set-piece violence." (Sunday Times)
Jack Reacher has no place to go, and all the time in the world to get there.
A remote railroad stop on the prairie with the curious name of Mother's Rest seems perfect for an aimless one-day stopover. He expects to find a lonely pioneer tombstone in a sea of nearly-ripe wheat.
Instead there is a woman waiting for a missing colleague, a cryptic note about two hundred deaths, and a small town full of silent, watchful people.
Reacher's one-day stopover turns into an open-ended quest leading to the most hidden reaches of the internet, and right into the nightmare heart of darkness.
Although the Jack Reacher novels can be read in any order, Make Me is 20th in the series.
And be sure not to miss Reacher's newest adventure, no.26, Better off Dead! ***OUT NOW***
'Fast-paced, taut and punchy' Sunday Times
'One of Reacher's best...a must' Daily Express
After an epic and interrupted journey all the way from the snows of South Dakota, Jack Reacher has finally made it to Virginia.
His destination, the closest thing to a home he ever had: the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th Military Police.
Why? He wants to meet the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner. He liked her voice on the phone. But now he's arrived, she's disappeared, and things are getting weird.
Accused of a sixteen-year-old homicide and co-opted back into the army, Reacher says nothing.
But he's sure as hell thinking of a way out.
Although the Jack Reacher novels can be read in any order, Never Go Back follows on directly from the end of A Wanted Man.
Be sure not to miss Reacher's newest adventure, no.26, Better Off Dead! ***COMING SOON and AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER NOW***
READ A FREE PREVIEW OF THE EDGE-OF-YOUR-SEAT, HEART-IN-MOUTH NEW JACK REACHER THRILLER
Gerrardsville, Colorado. One tragic event. Two witnesses. Two conflicting accounts. One witness sees a woman throw herself in front of a bus - clearly suicide. The other witness is Jack Reacher. And he sees what really happened - a man in grey hoodie and jeans, swift and silent as a shadow, pushed the victim to her death, before grabbing her bag and sauntering away.
Reacher follows the killer on foot, not knowing that this was no random act of violence. It is part of something much bigger...a sinister, secret conspiracy, with powerful people on the take, enmeshed in an elaborate plot that leaves no room for error. If any step is compromised, the threat will have to be quickly and permanently removed.
But when the threat is Reacher, there is No Plan B...

But the weather there is not warm and dry, as it's supposed to be: he arrives in a freak blizzard. Reacher finds refuge in a snowed-in roadhouse with four other strangers stranded by the storm. Two of them are British military police, separated by the weather from the VIP they are detailed to protect. Can Reacher help them find their guy, or will an undercover assassin find him first?
