    Synopsis

    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
