"Lee Child writes edgy American thrillers to rival the likes of Thomas Harris and John Grisham" Daily Mirror "Sixth in seriously good series featuring Jack Reacher...Exciting, absorbing and intriguing, with hero big and bold enough to handle the percussive action" Literary Review "For most fans of Lee Child the greatest draw is his military police tough guy Jack Reacher...To be fair, Reacher is more of a thinking girl's beefcake - I can see Russell Crowe already angling for the movie part" The Times "Jack Reacher is a most magnetic creation, tough, cool and ultimately moral" Irish Independent "Lee Child's protagonist, Jack Reacher, is a hero in the Dirty Harry style, a man who lives by his own principles...Produces a surprising twist when it's least expected" Sunday Telegraph
