Child''s bestselling, award-winning novel that introduced the "wonderfully epic hero" ("People") who has inspired the new major motion picture "Jack Reacher, " starring Tom Cruise.
From the Publisher:
INTRODUCING JACK REACHER| The bestselling novel featuring the "wonderfully epic hero" (People) who inspired the hit film Jack Reacher. |
Ex-military policeman Jack Reacher is a drifter. He?s just passing through Margrave, Georgia, and in less than an hour, he?s arrested for murder. Not much of a welcome. All Reacher knows is that he didn?t kill anybody. At least not here. Not lately. But he doesn?t stand a chance of convincing anyone. Not in Margrave, Georgia. Not a chance in hell.|
Ex-MP Jack Reacher goes into action to find his brother's killers after a series of brutal crimes terrorize tiny Margrave, Georgia, only to uncover the dark and deadly conspiracy concealed behind the town's peaceful facade.
Annotation:
When Jack Reacher first shows up in Margrave, Georgia, the local cops arrest him for murder. While Jack is still reeling from the obviously false accusation, he finds out that the dead man is his own estranged brother. Then, it seems that anyone else that he's made contact with is also dead. The town-wide conspiracy has Jack running in circles, but with a little help from the new (and not yet corrupted) chief of detectives, and a young female officer who's taken a shine to him, he may be able to figure out just what is going on in this strange town.When Jack Reacher first shows up in Margrave, Georgia, the local cops arrest him for murder.

Author Bio
Lee Child
Lee Child is the man behind Jack Reacher, a six-foot-five-inch drifter and ex-military policeman who has been featured in more than a dozen best-selling thrillers. Child, who stands the same height as the hero of his series, was born in Coventry, England, and raised in the nearby working-class city of Birmingham. He began his career as a producer with Granada, the television company responsible for such shows as THE JEWEL IN THE CROWN and BRIDESHEAD REVISITED. In 1995, when he was 40, he was laid off due to a corporate restructuring. He used his unexpected free time to write the first Reacher novel, KILLING FLOOR, which was published in 1997. The book, which won an Anthony Award for best debut of the year, proved exceptionally popular, and Child now has millions of avid fans. Child once said of his protagonist, "I look at the character as an update of a very old figure, who comes out of 1,000 years of literary tradition: the loner, the mysterious stranger, the knight errant who shows up, solves a problem and then leaves. He came out of Scandinavian sagas and English tales of knights and survived into the American West and pop lit." Explaining why Reacher's adventures take place in the U.S., Child, who is married to an American woman, has said, "The idea of writing against a huge landscape, a vast continent where anything could happen, greatly appealed to me."

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"Despite the crude, tough-naif narration, debut novelist Child serves up a big, rangy plot, menace as palpable as a ticking bomb, and enough battered corpses to make an undertaker grin." 01/01/1997
