The Hard Way (Jack Reacher #10)
|Series:||Jack Reacher Ser.|
Jack Reacher was alone, the way he liked it, soaking up the hot, electric New York City night, watching a man cross the street to a parked Mercedes and drive it away. The car contained one million dollars in ransom money. And Edward Lane, the man who paid it, will pay even more to get his family back. Lane runs a highly illegal soldiers-for-hire operation. He will use any amount of money and any tool to find his beautiful wife and child. And then he'll turn Jack Reacher loose with a vengeance - because Reacher is the best man hunter in the world. On the trail of a vicious kidnapper, Reacher is learning the chilling secrets of his employer's past...and of a horrific drama in the heart of a nasty little war. He's beginning to realize that Edward Lane is hiding something. Something dirty. Something big. But Reacher also knows this: he's already in way too deep to stop now.
Reacher comes to the UK! Dangerous, sexy and invincible.
"Reacher, who has long since gained mythical status, is human after all ... This is storytelling of the highest order: lean, laconic, laced with tension" Evening Standard "The invincible Reacher is as irresistible as ever" Sunday Telegraph "Child is a consummate thriller writer: his prose is trim but descriptive, his plots believable, fresh and positively airtight, and shows himself a master of misdirection" Time Out "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 "Another cracking teeth-chatterer" Daily Mail
