Review quote

"Reacher, who has long since gained mythical status, is human after all ... This is storytelling of the highest order: lean, laconic, laced with tension." -- Mark Sanderson * 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 *show more
