March 1997. A woman has her throat cut behind a bar in Mississippi. Just down the road is a big army base. Is the murderer a local guy - or is he a soldier?Jack Reacher, still a major in the military police, is sent in undercover. The county sheriff is a former U.S. Marine - and a stunningly beautiful woman. Her investigation is going nowhere. Is the Pentagon stonewalling her? Or doesn't she really want to find the killer?Set just six months before the opening of Killing FloorThe Affair marks a turning point in Reacher's career. If he does what the army wants, will he be able to live with himself? And if he doesn't, will the army be able to live with him?''Compulsively readable.'' The Wall Street Journal''The [Reacher] novel fans have been waiting for.'' USA Today''One of the best Reacher books yet...The tension builds early and continues nonstop.'' The Miami Herald
"Just when you thought it couldn't possibly get any better, Lee Child pulls Jack Reacher out of another hole and, bang, he produces nothing short of a thriller masterpiece...Here, we get what we've been waiting for...the story of how Reacher became Reacher."  Henry Sutton, Mirror"Child on top of his game. It could well be his best book yet...The paradox of Reacher is that he is both a great big grizzly bear of a fighter...and a thinker, both Schwarzenegger and Socrates. Make love and war is his credo."  Independent"Just finished The Affair. As always, hero Reacher grabs me on page one and never lets go. Right now Lee Child is my No1 thriller writer"  Ken Follett"Lee Child is on brilliant form in The Affair... for sheer page-turning ability it's unbeatable"  Evening Standard
