Description

Featuring Jack Reacher, hero of the new blockbuster movie starring Tom Cruise. Jack Reacher, alone, strolling nowhere. A Chicago street in bright sunshine. A young woman, struggling on crutches. He offers her a steadying arm. And turns to see a handgun aimed at his stomach. Chained in a dark van racing across America, Reacher doesn't know why they've been kidnapped. The woman claims to be FBI. She's certainly tough enough. But at their remote destination, will raw courage be enough to overcome the hopeless odds?show more

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)show more

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 Expressshow more

Customer reviews

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
