Description

Jack Reacher takes an aimless stroll past a pawn shop in a small Midwestern town. In the window he sees a West Point class ring from 2005. It's tiny. It's a woman cadet's graduation present to herself. Why would she give it up? Reacher's a West Pointer too, and he knows what she went through to get it. Reacher tracks the ring back to its owner, step by step, down a criminal trail leading west. Like Big Foot come out of the forest, he arrives in the deserted wilds of Wyoming. All he wants is to find the woman. If she's OK, he'll walk away. If she's not ... he'll stop at nothing. He's still shaken by the recent horrors of Make Me, and now The Midnight Line sees him set on a raw and elemental quest for simple justice. Best advice: don't get in his way.show more

Review quote

"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 "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 * "The one that breaks your heart...Reacher has a reputation to live up to: drifter, loner, knuckles the size of walnuts, etc...[ yet has] more emotional heft than anything Child has written before." -- Janet Maslin * New York Times * "A timely, affecting, suspenseful and morally complex thriller. In fact, it's one of the best thrillers I've read this year." * Washington Post *show more
