There's nothing like a Jack Reacher story. Tough, savvy and formidable, his lazy appearance is deceiving, his honorable streak runs bone deep and his ingenuity is formidable -- and that doesn't even take into consideration his very human caffeine addiction. Child hasn't developed a character -- he's created an icon. To match it, he's paired Reacher with the only icon able to match him: New York. Child's knowledge of the city, his understanding of its denizens and Reacher's indomitable nature make for a first-rate adventure, an adrenaline-laced thrill ride that will have readers demanding more pages to turn.
