A Wanted Man (Jack Reacher #17)

by Lee Child

When you’re as big and rough as Jack Reacher – and you have a badly set, freshly busted nose – it isn’t easy to hitch a ride. At last, he’s picked up by three strangers – two men and a woman.

Within minutes it becomes clear they’re all lying about everything – and there’s a police roadblock ahead. 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?

”Child is a superb craftsman of suspense.” Entertainment Weekly

“Lee Child’s genius in 17 novels has been to create a tough guy hero that men will envy and women will adore.”  Daily Express

“Pure escapism…He has redefined the thriller for the 21st century … stunningly good.”  Henry Sutton, Daily Mirror

“Smart, breathless…more ingenious than other Reacher books have been about the underground activities Reacher is thwarting.” – Janet Maslin, New York Times

“With Child, you can always count on furious action – and a damned good time.” Miami Herald
