"A page-turner... [Lee] Child's tale drives hard and fast."
- Los Angeles Times Book Review


Jack Reacher lives for the moment.  Without a home.  Without commitment.  And with a burning desire to right wrongs - and rewrite his own agonizing past.  DEA agent Susan Duffy is living for the future, knowing that she has made a terrible mistake by putting one of her own female agents into a death trap within a heavily guarded Maine mansion.

Staging a brilliant ruse, Reacher hurtles into the dark heart of a vast criminal enterprise.  Trying to rescue an agent whose time is running out, Reacher enters a crime lord's waterfront fortress.  There he will find a world of secrecy and violence - and confront some unfinished business from his own past.

"Gripping and suspensful...  Child ratchets up the suspense to new heights."
- The Denver Post


"Wickedly addictive... so fast-paced it makes the eyeballs spin."
- Orlando Sentinel

Author(s)

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.
