    Synopsis

    Six shots. Five dead. A heartland city thrown into terror. But within hours the cops have it solved. A slam-dunk case.Apart from one thing. The accused gunman refuses to talk except for a single phrase: Get Jack Reacher for me.Reacher lives off the grid. He's not looking for trouble.But sometimes trouble looks for him. What could connect the ex-military cop to this psychopathic killer?"Pure, escapist gold...Reacher has amazing powers of deduction, a serious conscience and the occasional touch of tenderness. It's a wildly improbable mixture, one that can't be beat." The New York Times"Jack Reacher is irresistible"  Observer"The thing about Lee Child's books is that you can't put the damn things down" Independent on Sunday"Child's strengths are fast-moving dialogue and gripping action sequences ... The excitement lasts from the first to the final page"  Evening Standard"Lee Child is often mistaken for a US writer, so skilfully and enthusiastically has he embraced the idiom of the American thriller ... One of the genre's finest practitioners" Independent"First-rate thriller, with the imperturbable Reacher meting out his brand of justice to the villains"  Sunday Telegraph
