61 Hours (Jack Reacher #14)

by Lee Child

Icy winter in South Dakota. A bus skids and crashes in a gathering storm. On the back seat: Jack Reacher, hitching a ride to nowhere. A life without baggage has many advantages. And disadvantages too, like facing the arctic cold without a coat.

A small town is threatened by sinister forces. One brave woman is standing up for justice.If she’s going to live to testify, she’ll need help from a man like Reacher. Because there’s a killer coming for her.

Has Reacher finally met his match? He doesn’t want to put the world to rights. He just doesn’t like people who put it to wrongs.

“Explodes into one of the best thrillers I’ve read for ages. Lee Child is a Brit who has managed to becomes more American than most US authors… 61 Hours is destined to do big things… Superb stuff!”  Independent on Sunday

61 Hours is a first-class thriller… Child delivers it brilliantly”  Mail on Sunday

“One of the many delights of Child’s extraordinary sequence of novels is Reacher’s 360-degree intelligence… there are now Lee Child copycats aplenty. Save your money for the real thing” Guardian

“A storyteller who knows a lot about style… Watching the clock underscores the tension that Child builds so well. You do and you don’t want it all to end”  Sydney Morning Herald
