Author Info
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
"Unabashedly mindless but fun: Reacher swashbuckles with the best of them."
From the Publisher
Annotation Smart, brutish ex-military cop Jack Reacher can kill with his bare hands and stop bullets with his abundant pectorals, but can he fight the evil "Hook" Hobie, a corporate loan shark with a disfigured face, a metal hook for a right hand, and a taste for blood? After years of living a hermit's life and digging swimming pools in Key West, a private investigator hired by his former army commanding officer Leon Garber lures Jack back to the big city. When both the PI and Garber are found brutally killed, Jack joins Leon's enchanting daughter Jodie in her search for the killer and for the truth behind a missing persons investigation Leon had been working on before his death. The determined duo soon finds that all paths lead to Hobie. From there, the real battle begins.
Editors Note Settling into a peaceful life in Key West, Reacher's world is turned upside down when a stranger comes looking for him, a man who turns up dead in the Old Town cemetery and who leads him on a perilous trail to New York, where he confronts an alluring woman from his past, and a deadly opponent. Reissue.
