The Hard Way (Jack Reacher #10)

by Lee Child

He watches a man cross a New York street and drive away in a Mercedes. The car contains $1 million of ransom money. Reacher’s job is to make sure it all turns out right – money paid, family safely returned.

But Reacher is in the middle of a nasty little war where nothing is simple.

What started on a busy New York street explodes three thousand miles away, in the sleepy English countryside.

Reacher’s going to have to do this one the hard way.

“Reacher, who has long since gained mythical status, is human after all … This is storytelling of the highest order: lean, laconic, laced with tension”  Evening Standard

“The invincible Reacher is as irresistible as ever”  Sunday Telegraph

“Child is a consummate thriller writer: his prose is trim but descriptive, his plots believable, fresh and positively airtight, and shows himself a master of misdirection” Time Out

“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

“Another cracking teeth-chatterer”  Daily Mail

“Possibly the British author’s best yet”  Daily Mirror

The Hard Way is a straight-ahead, high-octane thriller that drops the reader down in the middle of the story and keeps you turning the pages until the plot speeds to its thrilling conclusion….one of the most reliable contemporary thriller writers…” Philadelphia Inquirer
