THE GRIPPING NEW JACK REACHER THRILLER FROM THE #1 NEW YORK
TIMES
BESTSELLING AUTHORS LEE CHILD AND ANDREW CHILD


1992.  All across the United States respectable, upstanding citizens are showing up dead.  These deaths could be accidents, and they don't appear to be connected - until a fatal fall from a high-floor window attracts some unexpected attention.

That attention comes from the secretary of defense.  All of a sudden he wants an interagency task force to investigate.  And he wants Jack Reacher as the army's representative.  If Reacher gets a result, great. If not, he's a convenient fall guy.

But office politics isn't Reacher's thing.  Three questions quickly emerge: Who's with him, who's against him, and will the justice he dispenses be the official kind... or his own kind?

LEE CHILD is the author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Jack Reacher series and the complete Jack Reacher story collection, No Middle Name.  Foreign rights in the Reacher series have sold in one hundred territories.  A native of England and a former television director, Lee Child lives in New York City and Wyoming.  Learn more at leechild.com.

ANDREW CHILD, who also writes as Andrew Grant, is the author of RUN, False Positive, False Friend, False Witness, Invisible, and Too Close to Home.  He is the #1 bestselling co-author of the Jack Reacher novels The Sentinel, Better Off Dead, and No Plan B.  Child and his wife, the novelist Tasha Alexander, live on a wildlife preserve in Wyoming.  Visit andrewgrantbooks.com.

SCOTT BRICK, a Grammy® nominee, has won over fifty Earphones Awards, five Audie Awards, and has twice been named Publishers Weekly's Narrator of the Year.

Author(s)

Andrew Child  
Birth: Cir 01 Jan 1968 Birmingham, England, UK
Notes:
From www.jackreacher.com:

Andrew Grant was born in Birmingham, England in May 1968. He went to school in St Albans, Hertfordshire and later attended the University of Sheffield where he studied English Literature and Drama. After graduation Andrew set up and ran a small independent theatre company which showcased a range of original material to local, regional and national audiences. Following a critically successful but financially challenging appearance at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival Andrew moved into the telecommunications industry as a ‘temporary’ solution to a short-term cash crisis. Fifteen years later, after carrying out a variety of roles – including a number which were covered by the UK Official Secrets Act – Andrew escaped from corporate life, and established himself as the author of the critically-acclaimed novels Even, Die Twice, More Harm Than Good, RUN, False Positive, False Friend, False Witness, Invisible, and Too Close To Home. Andrew is married to novelist Tasha Alexander, and lives on a wildlife preserve in Wyoming, USA.

Lee Child  
Birth: 29 Oct 1954 Coventry, West Midlands, England, UK
Notes:
From www.jackreacher.com:

Lee Child was born October 29th, 1954 in Coventry, England, but spent his formative years in the nearby city of Birmingham. By coincidence he won a scholarship to the same high school that JRR Tolkien had attended. He went to law school in Sheffield, England, and after part-time work in the theater he joined Granada Television in Manchester for what turned out to be an eighteen-year career as a presentation director during British TV's "golden age." During his tenure his company made Brideshead Revisited, The Jewel in the Crown, Prime Suspect, and Cracker. But he was fired in 1995 at the age of 40 as a result of corporate restructuring. Always a voracious reader, he decided to see an opportunity where others might have seen a crisis and bought six dollars' worth of paper and pencils and sat down to write a book, Killing Floor, the first in the Jack Reacher series.

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.
