It's a winner."-Greg Iles "A thoroughly engrossing tale told by an author who doesn't miss a beat." -Rocky Mountain News "Child presents his tense, action-packed adventure in vivid prose, as lean and capable as his central character. Jack Reacher is not merely a terrific hero; he sets a new standard."-Tom Savage "Opens with a bang."-Chicago Tribune "A literate scenario-cum-thriller."-The Philadelphia Inquirer "Lee Child's knowledge of the modern military and its combat tactics amazed me. A chilling and all-too realistic story, and a damn good book."-Steve Thayer "[A] redoubtable yet romantic hero...[a] fast-paced misadventure...Cunning and explosive, it's a thumping good read."-Time Out "Furiously suspenseful."-Kirkus Reviewsshow more
