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
"Child's plot is ingenious, his characters are first-rate, and his writing is fine indeed. I don't often shed tears over fictional folk, but he makes the unexpected death of one character genuinely moving. And his lyrical description of a Wyoming sunrise, too long to quote here, reflects his love of his adopted country. This is a superior series."
"If WITHOUT FAIL doesn't hook you on Lee Child, I give up. [It...] may be the best of Child's austere thrillers..."
From the Publisher
Annotation Ex-military cop Jack Reacher is assigned to protect the vice president-elect, Senator Brook Armstrong, from an assassin who has been sending threatening letters and killing innocent men whose last names happen to be Armstrong--just to show that he's serious. As Reacher tries to determine the identity of this diabolical adversary, he discovers that he has feelings for a female Secret Service agent.
Editors Note The bestselling novel featuring the "wonderfully epic hero" (People) who inspired the hit film Jack Reacher. | Skilled, stealthy, and anonymous, Jack Reacher is the perfect man for the job: to assassinate the vice president of the United States. Theoretically. The head of a high-level Secret Service security detail wants Reacher to find the holes in her system?and fast. A group of desperate men already has the vice president in its sights. And it will stop at nothing to realize its objective. The assassins have planned well. But they never planned on Jack Reacher. See Jack Reacher now in his first major motion picture!
