On a Chicago street in bright sunshine, Jack Reacher, is strolling nowhere and sees an attractive young woman, struggling on crutches. Naturally, he stops to offer her a steadying arm. And then he turns around to see a handgun aimed straight at his stomach. Locked in a dark, stifling van racing across America, chained to the woman, Reacher needs to know why he's there. The kidnappers are saying nothing. The woman claims to be an FBI agent. She's tough enough to be one. But at their remote destination, will raw courage and cunning be enough to overcome the hopeless odds? Full of non-stop action and gritty suspense, "Die Trying" is a tightly plotted thriller starring one of the most exciting action heroes in today's fiction, the redoubtable, romantic, footloose former army cop, Jack Reacher.

Review quote

"'Jack Reacher is a wonderfully epic hero; tough, taciturn, yet vulnerable... Irresistible.'" People "'Reacher combines the physique of the Commando-period Schwarzenegger with the analytical brilliance of Sherlock Holmes.'" Himself Magazine "'The taut plot, set firmly in headline territory, lays bare the world of the rabid, worm-like militias crawling in the political underbelly of America... This is an action adventure that never gives you a moment's peace and quiet - an excellent read.'" Publishing News "'Cunning and explosive...A thumping good read'" Time Out "A skilled, smart, violent page-turner" Daily Express

Review text

By sheer chance, an ex-army special operations man is kidnapped with a female FBI agent, who is the intended victim. Sounds contrived? In fact, the opening scenario is convincing, and so is what follows. The agent is the daughter of a general, hence her kidnap, and the man is Jack Reacher, hero of Child's first novel Killing Floor. What follows is a taut, gripping thriller with a spectacular climax. (Kirkus UK)

OMG

Whilst at a family get together, an ancient Uncle 'thought that I might enjoying reading this book'. I graciously accepted the dog eared copy of Die Trying and promptly tucked it away on a book shelf at home. I was off from work sick and, searching for a book to read, came across the 'must read' from Uncle. I was only away from work for 2 days but managed not only to read Die Trying but also to order every title in the Jack Reacher saga, from The Book Depository, naturally. Do not read another book until you have read a Lee Child. Possibly the best author I have ever read, and believe me I've read plenty, I'm an English teacher.show more
