Night School

It’s 1996, and Reacher is still in the army. In the morning they give him a medal, and in the afternoon they send him back to school. That night he’s off the grid. Out of sight, out of mind.

Two other men are in the classroom—an FBI agent and a CIA analyst. Each is a first-rate operator, each is fresh off a big win, and each is wondering what the hell they are doing there.

Then they find out: A Jihadist sleeper cell in Hamburg, Germany, has received an unexpected visitor—a Saudi courier, seeking safe haven while waiting to rendezvous with persons unknown. A CIA asset, undercover inside the cell, has overheard the courier whisper a chilling message: “The American wants a hundred million dollars.”

For what? And who from? Reacher and his two new friends are told to find the American. Reacher recruits the best soldier he has ever worked with: Sergeant Frances Neagley. Their mission heats up in more ways than one, while always keeping their eyes on the prize: If they don’t get their man, the world will suffer an epic act of terrorism.

From Langley to Hamburg, Jalalabad to Kiev, Night School moves like a bullet through a treacherous landscape of double crosses, faked identities, and new and terrible enemies, as Reacher maneuvers inside the game and outside the law.

Make Me

Jack Reacher has no place to go, and all the time in the world to get there, so a remote railroad stop with the curious name of Mother's Rest seems perfect for an aimless one-day stopover.

He expects to find a lonely tombstone in a sea of nearly-ripe wheat but instead there is a woman waiting for a missing private investigator, a cryptic note about two hundred deaths, and a small town full of silent, watchful people.

Reacher’s one-day stopover turns into an open-ended stay…

Personal

Jack Reacher walks alone.

Someone has taken a long-range shot at the French president but failed to kill him. The suspected sniper has serious skills and is a hard man to find. Reacher tracked him down once and put him in jail. Now he's asked to hunt him again, and put him away permanently. 

Tracking the shooter will take Reacher from France to England after a killer with a treacherous vendetta. He'll need to uncover who did the hiring and what's behind the assassination attempt before executing his orders.

Only one man could have done it. And Reacher is the only man who can find him.

The stakes have never been higher - because this time, it's personal.

Never Go Back

After an epic and interrupted journey all the way from the snows of South Dakota, Jack Reacher has finally made it to Virginia. His destination: a sturdy stone building a short bus ride from Washington D.C., the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th MP. It was the closest thing to a home he ever had.

Why? He wants to meet the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner. He liked her voice on the phone. But the officer sitting behind Reacher's old desk isn't a woman. Why is Susan Turner not there?

What Reacher doesn't expect is what comes next. He himself is in big trouble, accused of a sixteen-year-old homicide. And he certainly doesn't expect to hear these words: 'You're back in the army, Major. And your ass is mine.'

Will he be sorry he went back? Or - will someone else?

A Wanted Man

When you're as big and rough as Jack Reacher - and you have a badly-set, freshly-busted nose, patched with silver duct tape - it isn't easy to hitch a ride.

But Reacher has some unfinished business in Virginia, so he doesn't quit. And at last, he's picked up by three strangers - two men and a woman. But within minutes it becomes clear they're all lying about everything - and then they run into a police roadblock on the highway.

There has been an incident, and the cops are looking for the bad guys ... Will they get through because the three are innocent?Or because the three are now four? Is Reacher just a decoy?

With his signature Swiss-watch plotting and heart-thumping suspense, A Wanted Man shows Lee Child at his sublimely skilful best.

61 Hours

Winter in South Dakota. Blowing snow, icy roads, a tired driver. A bus skids and crashes and is stranded in a gathering storm.

There’s a small town twenty miles away, where a vulnerable witness is guarded around the clock. There’s a strange stone building five miles further on, all alone on the prairie. There’s a ruthless man who controls everything from the warmth of Mexico.

Jack Reacher hitched a ride in the back of the bus. A life without baggage has many advantages. And crucial disadvantages too, when it means facing the arctic cold without a coat. But he’s equipped for the rest of his task. He doesn’t want to put the world to rights. He just doesn’t like people who put it to wrongs.

The heartstopping new thriller starring today’s most admired action hero.

Bad Luck And Trouble

***A SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER IN HARDBACK AND PAPERBACK***

"The best thriller writer in the business"
Janet Maslin, New York Times

“Arguably today’s finest thriller series”
Publishers Weekly starred review

You do not mess with the Special Investigators! The events of 9/11 changed Jack Reacher's drifter life in a practical way. In addition to his folding toothbrush, he now needs to carry photo ID to get around. Yet he is still as close to untraceable as a human being in America can get.

So when a member of his old Army unit manages to get a message to him, he knows it has to be deadly serious. The Special Investigators always watched each other's backs. Now Reacher must put the old unit back together. Someone has killed one of them, and he can't let that go.

The Hard Way

THE TENTH IN THE OUTSTANDING JACK REACHER SERIES

*** A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER ***

*** A SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER ***

'The best thriller writer of the moment' - Janet Maslin, New York Times

'Arguably today’s finest thriller series' - Publishers Weekly starred review

'The best thriller writer in the business' - The Boston Globe

Late at night in a New York café, army-cop-turned-drifter Jack Reacher orders coffee in a foam cup so that he can move on at a moment’s notice. He owns nothing, carries less. He has never met a female colleague he can’t seduce, or a case he can’t solve.

But now Reacher is confronted by a situation so disturbing and deceptive that the truth eludes him. Has he painted targets on the good guys’ backs?

One Shot

***A SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER***

*** A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER***


*** 20TH MOST BORROWED TITLE FROM UK LIBRARIES 2005/ 2006 ***

A lone gunman unleashes pandemonium when he shoots into a crowd of people in a public plaza in Indiana. Five people are killed in cold blood, shot through the head. But he leaves a perfect trail of evidence behind him, and soon the local police chief tracks him down. After his arrest, the shooter's only words are, 'Get Jack Reacher for me.' What could possibly connect this psychopath and the wandering dropout ex army cop? Critics call Lee Child's thriller series 'addictive', so here is our annual, much-longed for, Reacher fix.

'Hot, indomitable… knockout.’New York Times

'The thing about Lee Child’s books is that you can’t put the damn things down.‘ Independent on Sunday

'Reacher sees justice done while kicking commendable amounts of ass ... Intricate plotting makes for an engrossing read.' Arena

The Enemy

** 4 WEEKS AT NUMBER 2 IN THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER LIST **

** THE ENEMY RIDES HIGH ON THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER LIST **


Two Special Forces soldiers—the toughest of the tough—are taken down one at a time. Top military commanders are being rotated from place to place in a bizarre game of chess. And somewhere in the vast, world-wide fortress of the U.S. Army, Jack Reacher—an investigator for the 110th Special Unit—is being set up as a fall guy with the worst enemies a man can ever have: elite Delta Force commandos.

But Reacher won’t quit. He embarks on a quest that leads from the ragged edges of a U.S. Army base to the winding streets of Paris to a confrontation with an enemy he did not know he had. And to a final meeting with his dying French-born mother, who divulges to her son one last, astounding secret.

Reacher is questioning everything he once believed…about his family, his career, and his loyalties…

Persuader

‘Persuader is ballsy, dynamic and not for the faint-hearted.’ - Daily Mirror

Undercover – by far the loneliest and most vulnerable way to work. But Jack Reacher volunteers for the mission without a moment’s hesitation. Because this time it’s personal.

Eleven days of planning produce a stunning eight second sting that carries him straight to the heart of enemy territory on Maine’s rugged Atlantic coast. As soon as he gets there, he realises that nothing is what it seems. What exactly is filtering into the country through Portland’s docks? Who will help and who will betray?

The clock starts ticking…

Two days there would be dangerous. Three would be lethal. Four would be suicidal.

But Reacher’s still there after five…

Without Fail

*** A UK SUNDAY TIMES NUMBER 2 BESTSELLER ***

How does the United States Secret Service protect the President and Vice President? And how can it know it’s doing the very best job it can? One newly promoted female team leader has a breakthrough idea:she will hire an outsider to act the part of an assassin and probe the weak points of her complex operation. An old boyfriend’s brother seems like an obvious candidate. She knows him only by reputation – and that reputation is fearsome. His name is Jack Reacher.

He takes the job, but only because he senses there is more to her request than a simple desire for perfection. He senses real danger in the background and he won’t leave his brother’s friend vulnerable. He finds serious weaknesses everywhere – and then is told of a macabre series of letters addressed to the Vice President-elect. The first reads: ‘You are going to die&rsquo.

Reacher has no doubt it will prove to be a true prediction – unless he can take a makeshift team through a thicket of bizarre and terrified witnesses in a desperate race against time.

Die Trying

*** WINNER OF THE WHSMITH THUMPING GOOD
READ AWARD ***


A Chicago Street in bright sunshine. Jack Reacher, strolling nowhere, meets an attractive young woman, limping, struggling with her crutches. Naturally he stops to offer her a steadying arm, and they turn together – to face twin handguns held level and motionless and aimed straight at their stomachs.

Chained to the woman, locked in a dark, stifling van racing 2,000 miles across America. Reacher needs to know who he’s dealing with. The kidnappers are saying nothing and his companion claims to be Holly Johnson, FBI Agent. She’s fierce enough and tough enough, but he knows there must be more to her than that. And at their remote, hostile destination, they will need to act as a team and trust each other, pitting raw courage and cunning against insane violence and seemingly hopeless odds, with their own lives and hundreds of other at stake.
