Suicide bombers are easy to spot. They give out all kinds of tell-tale signs. Mostly because they're nervous. By definition they're all first-timers. Riding the subway in New York at two o'clock in the morning, Reacher knows the twelve giveaway signs to look out for. Watching one of his fellow-passengers, he becomes sharply aware- one by one, she ticks off every bulletpoint on his list.So begins the new heartstopping new thriller starring today's most admired action hero, the gallant and enigmatic loner Jack Reacher.
Jack Reacher faces his most implacable enemy yet, in the double number one bestseller Lee Child.
"Has the switchback plotting and frictionless prose that are Child's trademarks... His lone-wolf habits and brusque, technophobic decodings of the world are always a pleasure" Guardian "Enhances his status as a mythic avenger... You'll be left with a thumping heart and a racing pulse but, be warned, Chapter 63 will give you nightmares" Evening Standard "Read this before you read any other new thriller, as the master of suspense and action is back on scorching form" Shortlist magazine "Lee Child's Jack Reacher books are among the most popular crime novels right now - they're good fun and super-tense...One of his best" Heat "So good at what he does... Much of the guilty pleasure delivered by Mr Child's books comes from their fine-tuned, obsessively deducted use of data... culminates in a blow-by-blow, stunningly well-choreographed showdown... effortlessly larger than life" The New York Times
