Description

THE NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER/A RICHARD & JUDY BOOKCLUB 2018 PICK

Jack Reacher is having a bad day.

It would be a dumb idea to make it worse.
Reacher sees a West Point class ring in a pawn shop window. It's tiny. It's a woman cadet's graduation present to herself. Why would she give it up? Reacher was a West Pointer too, and he knows what she went through to get it.

All he wants is to find the woman.

He'll have to go through bikers, cops, crooks, and low-life muscle.
If she's ok, he'll walk away. If she's not ... he'll stop at nothing.

Best advice: stay out of his way.

_________

Although the Jack Reacher novels can be read in any order, The Midnight Line follows on directly from the end of Make Me.

And be sure not to miss Reacher's newest adventure, no.26, Better off Dead! ***COMING SOON and AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER NOW***

Review Text

Each year Lee Child comes up with another Reacher. Each year I lap it up. Love it...Best one for a while...there is something subversive as well as page-turning...The sentences are short, but that doesn't mean the thinking is small....I don't know another author so skilled at making me turn the page, at putting me in the thick of it all.

Review quote

Marks a real departure for Lee Child, who homes in on two hot issues (US military veterans with mental or physical scars, and a related social plague currently in the news) ...Alongside this topicality is a poignancy that was lacking in earlier books. -- John Dugdale * Sunday Times Thriller of the Year * Each year Lee Child comes up with another Reacher. Each year I lap it up. Love it...Best one for a while...there is something subversive as well as page-turning...The sentences are short, but that doesn't mean the thinking is small....I don't know another author so skilled at making me turn the page, at putting me in the thick of it all. * The Times * I just read the new Jack Reacher novel by Lee Child....It is as good as they always are. I read every single one. -- Malcolm Gladwell Addictive...Child's trademark staccato-style delivers all-action excitement as well as a sombre message about the hypocrisy of the US war on drugs. * Metro * An eccentric but winning blend of the serious and the playful, this modern western resembles a collaboration between the Coen brothers and Karl Ove Knausgaard. * Sunday TImes *
