Description

The most hotly anticipated thriller of 2018 follows our hero Jack Reacher on a quest into his father's past, and climaxes in the most stomach-clenching, hair-raising, blood-curdling ticking time bomb of an adventure yet.

Jack Reacher plans to follow the autumn sun on an epic road trip across America, from Maine to California. He doesn’t get far. On a country road deep in the New England woods, he sees a sign to a place he has never been - the town where his father was born. He thinks, what’s one extra day? He takes the detour.

At the very same moment, close by, a car breaks down. Two young Canadians are trying to get to New York City to sell a treasure. They're stranded at a lonely motel in the middle of nowhere. It’s a strange place … but it’s all there is.

The next morning in the city clerk's office, Reacher asks about the old family home. He’s told no one named Reacher ever lived in that town. He knows his father never went back. Now he wonders, was he ever there in the first place?

So begins another nail-biting, adrenaline-fuelled adventure for Reacher. The present can be tense, but the past can be worse. That’s for damn sure.

    I've read all the Reacher books and they just keep getting better & better! Definite 'must read' - not only for all Reacher fans, but those who (incredibly) may have missed out on Lee Child's fantastic series. Start from the very first book and read them all - you won't be disappointed!
  • Little bit “samey”

    Love everything Lee writes and I feel Jack R is a really good friend after reading every one of his adventures to date. If Jack walked into my bar, we would talk for ever....over a pot of coffee! Bought and read this latest adventure in 24 hours straight through, rather disappointingly I had guessed the plot and the secondary plot far to early. Still can’t get the image of Tom Cruise out of my head when I read Jack....but the physical description compared to the reality of Tom is not an easy leap to make....conundrum … If you love Reacher, buy this book…if ambivalent still buy it…it’s pretty good!
