Description :  <b>#1 <i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER<br /><br />Never go back—but Jack Reacher does, and the past finally catches up with him. . . . <i>Never Go Back</i> is&#xa0;Lee Child’s new novel of action-charged suspense starring “one of the best thriller characters at work today” (<i>Newsweek</i>).</b><br /> <b>&#xa0;</b><br /> Former military cop Jack Reacher makes it all the way from snowbound South Dakota to his destination in northeastern Virginia, near Washington, D.C.: the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th MP. The old stone building is the closest thing to a home he ever had.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> Reacher is there to meet—in person—the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner, so far just a warm, intriguing voice on the phone.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> But it isn’t Turner behind the CO’s desk. And Reacher is hit with two pieces of shocking news, one with serious criminal consequences, and one too personal to even think about.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> When threatened, you can run or fight.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> Reacher fights, aiming to find Turner and clear his name, barely a step ahead of the army, and the FBI, and the D.C. Metro police, and four unidentified thugs.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> Combining an intricate puzzle of a plot and an exciting chase for truth and justice, Lee Child puts Reacher through his paces—and makes him question who he is, what he’s done, and the very future of his untethered life on the open road.<br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>Never Go Back</i></b><br /> <b><i>&#xa0;</i></b><br /> “A breathless cross-country spree . . . some of the best, wiliest writing [Lee] Child has ever done . . . Child’s bodacious action hero, Jack Reacher, has already tramped through 17 novels and three e-book singles. But his latest, <i>Never Go Back,</i> may be the best desert island reading in the series. It’s exceptionally well plotted. And full of wild surprises. And wise about Reacher’s peculiar nature. And positively Bunyanesque in its admiring contributions to Reacher lore.”<b>—Janet Maslin, <i>The New York Times</i></b><br /> <b><i>&#xa0;</i></b><br /> “Welcome to the relentless world of Jack Reacher and his impressive tendency to be in the wrong place at the right time. . . . Child has created an iconic character that other thriller writers try to emulate but don’t come close to matching. He has a talent for taking material that in the hands of other authors would be stale and making it seem fresh. . . . Tight and compelling . . . <i>Never Go Back</i> is one of Child’s best novels.”<b>—Associated Press</b><br /> <b><i>&#xa0;</i></b><br />“An adrenaline-charged, action-packed thriller . . . impossible to put down.”<b><i>—Lansing State Journal</i></b><br /> <i>&#xa0;</i><br /> “The dialogue has never been sharper. . . . The pages turn themselves.”<b><i>—San Antonio Express-News</i></b><br /><br />“For the pure pleasure of uncomplicated, nonstop action, no one touches Reacher.”<b>—<i>Kirkus Reviews </i>(starred review)</b><br /> <b><i>&#xa0;</i></b><br /> “Brilliant . . . Child never, ever slips. He keeps the action cranking better than anyone, but, best of all, he keeps us guessing about Reacher.”<b>—<i>Booklist </i>(starred review)</b><br /> <b>&#xa0;</b><br /> “One of the best in the series.”<b>—<i>Publishers Weekly </i>(starred review)</b><br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>

Description :  <b>#1&#xa0;<i>NEW YORK TIMES&#xa0;</i>BESTSELLER •&#xa0;Jack Reacher returns in another fast-moving, action-packed, suspenseful book from&#xa0;Lee Child.</b><br /> <b>&#xa0;</b><br /> <i>You can leave the army, but the army doesn’t leave you. Not always. Not completely, </i>notes Jack Reacher—and sure enough, the retired military cop is soon pulled back into service. This time, for the State Department and the CIA.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> Someone has taken a shot at the president of France in the City of Light. The bullet was American. The distance between the gunman and the target was exceptional. How many snipers can shoot from three-quarters of a mile with total confidence? Very few, but John Kott—an American marksman gone bad—is one of them. And after fifteen years in prison, he’s out, unaccounted for, and likely drawing a bead on a G8 summit packed with enough world leaders to tempt any assassin. <br /> &#xa0;<br /> If anyone can stop Kott, it’s the man who beat him before: Reacher. And though he’d rather work alone, Reacher is teamed with Casey Nice, a rookie analyst who keeps her cool with Zoloft. But they’re facing a rough road, full of ruthless mobsters, Serbian thugs, close calls, double-crosses—and no backup if they’re caught. All the while Reacher can’t stop thinking about the woman he once failed to save. But he won’t let that that happen again. Not this time. Not Nice.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> Reacher never gets too close. But now a killer is making it personal.<br /><br />BONUS: This edition includes the short story "Not a Drill" and an excerpt from Lee Child's <i>Make Me.</i><br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>Personal</i></b><br /> <b><i>&#xa0;</i></b><br /> “The best one yet.”<b>—Stephen King</b><br /> &#xa0;<br /> “Reacher is the stuff of myth, a great male fantasy. . . .

But it’s Reacher the Teacher who wows here.”<b>—Marilyn Stasio, <i>The New York Times</i></b><br /> <b><i>&#xa0;</i></b><br /> “Jack Reacher is today’s James Bond, a thriller hero we can’t get enough of.

But no one will tell him. It’s a tiny place hidden in a thousand square miles of wheat fields, with a railroad stop, and sullen and watchful people, and a worried woman named Michelle Chang, who mistakes him for someone else: her missing partner in a private investigation she thinks must have started small and then turned lethal.<br /><br /> Reacher has no particular place to go, and all the time in the world to get there, and there’s something about Chang . . . so he teams up with her and starts to ask around. He thinks: How bad can this thing be? But before long he’s plunged into a desperate race through LA, Chicago, Phoenix, and San Francisco, and through the hidden parts of the internet, up against thugs and assassins every step of the way—right back to where he started, in Mother’s Rest, where he must confront the worst nightmare he could imagine.<br /><br /> Walking away would have been easier.

The guy who writes about him is too.”<b>—Janet Maslin, <i>The New York Times</i></b><br /><br />“Another winner&#xa0;. . . There’s a reason why Child is considered the best of the best in the thriller genre: He can take all these strange elements and clichés and make them compelling and original.”<b>—Associated Press</b><br /><br />“A superb thriller.”<b>—New York <i>Daily News</i></b><br /><br /> “Child’s complete command of the story makes this thriller work brilliantly.”<b>—<i>Publishers Weekly</i> (starred review)</b><br /><br />“I’ve read all twenty of Lee Child’s novels. Maybe there’s something wrong with me. But I can’t wait for the twenty-first.”<b>—Malcolm Gladwell, <i>The New Yorker</i></b><br /><br /> “[The Reacher series] is the current gold standard in the genre. . . . In <i>Make Me</i> Lee Child delivers another Jack Reacher specialty; the total knockout.”<b>—<i>Dayton Daily News</i></b><br /><br /> “Child serves up wingding plots, pithy dialogue, extraordinary background on intriguing topics, and cunningly constructed suspense. But what keeps us coming back—by the millions—is the chance to walk around in the skin of that big guy in the middle of everything.”<b>—<i>The Oregonian</i></b><br /><br /> “A dark thriller . . . Lee Child’s <i>Make Me,</i> the twentieth in his wildly popular Jack Reacher series, delivers exactly what readers have come to expect from the perennial bestselling author: interesting characters, tight plots and page-turning action. . . .

An elite military cop, he was one of the army’s brightest stars. But in every cop’s life there is a turning point. One case. One messy, tangled case that can shatter a career. Turn a lawman into a renegade. And make him question words like honor, valor, and duty. For Jack Reacher, this is that case.<br /><br /> New Year’s Day, 1990. The Berlin Wall is coming down. The world is changing. And in a North Carolina “hot-sheets” motel, a two-star general is found dead. His briefcase is missing. Nobody knows what was in it. Within minutes Jack Reacher has his orders: Control the situation. But this situation can’t be controlled. Within hours the general’s wife is murdered hundreds of miles away. Then the dominoes really start to fall.<br /><br /> Two Special Forces soldiers—the toughest of the tough—are taken down, one at a time. Top military commanders are moved from place to place in a bizarre game of chess. And somewhere inside the vast worldwide fortress that is the U.S. Army, Jack Reacher—an ordinarily untouchable investigator for the 110th Special Unit—is being set up as a fall guy with the worst enemies a man can have.<br /><br /> But Reacher won’t quit. He’s fighting a new kind of war. And he’s taking a young female lieutenant with him on a deadly hunt that leads them from the ragged edges of a rural army post to the winding streets of Paris to a confrontation with an enemy he didn’t know he had. With his French-born mother dying—and divulging to her son one last, stunning secret—Reacher is forced to question everything he once believed…about his family, his career, his loyalties—and himself. Because this soldier’s son is on his way into the darkness, where he finds a tangled drama of desperate desires and violent death—and a conspiracy more chilling, ingenious, and treacherous than anyone could have guessed.

And sure enough, from the world he lives in—no phone, no address, no commitments–ex–military investigator Jack Reacher is coming. In Lee Child’s astonishing new thriller, Reacher’s arrival will change everything—about a case that isn’t what it seems, about lives tangled in baffling ways, about a killer who missed one shot–and by doing so give Jack Reacher one shot at the truth.…<br /><br /> The gunman worked from a parking structure just thirty yards away–point-blank range for a trained military sniper like James Barr. His victims were in the wrong place at the wrong time. But why does Barr want Reacher at his side? There are good reasons why Reacher is the last person Barr would want to see. But when Reacher hears Barr’s own words, he understands. And a slam-dunk case explodes. Soon Reacher is teamed with a young defense lawyer who is working against her D.A. father and dueling with a prosecution team that has an explosive secret of its own. Like most things Reacher has known in life, this case is a complex battlefield. But, as always, in battle, Reacher is at his best.<br /><br /> Moving in the shadows, picking his spots, Reacher gets closer and closer to the unseen enemy who is pulling the strings. And for Reacher, the only way to take him down is to know his ruthlessness and respect his cunning–and then match him shot for shot….

But now a woman from his old unit has done the impossible. From Chicago, Frances Neagley finds Reacher, using a signal only the eight members of their elite team of army investigators would know. She tells him a terrifying story—about the brutal death of a man they both served with. Soon Reacher is reuniting with the survivors of his old team, scrambling to raise the living, bury the dead, and connect the dots in a mystery that is growing darker by the day. The deeper they dig, the more they don’ t know: about two other comrades who have suddenly gone missing—and a trail that leads into the neon of Vegas and the darkness of international terrorism.<br /><br /> For now, Reacher can only react. To every sound. Every suspicion. Every scent and every moment. Then Reacher will trust the people he once trusted with his life—and take this thing all the way to the end. Because in a world of bad luck and trouble, when someone targets Jack Reacher and his team, they’d better be ready for what comes right back at them…

For the only way to find the truth—and save two innocent lives—is to do it the way Jack Reacher does it best: the hard way…. <br /><br /> Jack Reacher was alone, the way he liked it, soaking up the hot, electric New York City night, watching a man cross the street to a parked Mercedes and drive it away. The car contained one million dollars in ransom money. And Edward Lane, the man who paid it, will pay even more to get his family back. Lane runs a highly illegal soldiers-for-hire operation. He will use any amount of money and any tool to find his beautiful wife and child. And then he’ll turn Jack Reacher loose with a vengeance—because Reacher is the best man hunter in the world.<br /><br /> On the trail of a vicious kidnapper, Reacher is learning the chilling secrets of his employer’s past…and of a horrific drama in the heart of a nasty little war.

Release Date :  2017-05-16
Description :  <b>Get ready for the ultimate Jack Reacher experience: a thrilling new novella and eleven previously published stories, together for the first time in one pulse-pounding collection from #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author Lee Child.</b><br /><br /> <i>No Middle Name</i> begins with “Too Much Time,” a brand-new work of short fiction that finds Reacher in a hollowed-out town in Maine, where he witnesses a random bag-snatching but sees much more than a simple crime. “Small Wars” takes readers back to 1989, when Reacher is an MP assigned to solve the brutal murder of a young officer found along an isolated forest road in Georgia—and whose killer may be hiding in plain sight. In “Not a Drill,” Reacher tries to take some downtime, but a pleasant hike in Maine turns into a walk on the wild side—and perhaps something far more sinister. “High Heat” time-hops to 1977, when Reacher is a teenager in sweltering New York City during a sudden blackout that awakens the dark side of the city that never sleeps. Okinawa is the setting of “Second Son,” which reveals the pivotal moment when young Reacher’s sharp “lizard brain” becomes just as important as his muscle. In “Deep Down,” Reacher tracks down a spy by matching wits with four formidable females—three of whom are clean, but the fourth may prove fatal. Rounding out the collection are “Guy Walks into a Bar,” “James Penney’s New Identity,” “Everyone Talks,” “The Picture of the Lonely Diner,” “Maybe They Have a Tradition,” and “No Room at the Motel.”<br /><br />No suitcase. No destination. No middle name. No matter how far Reacher travels off the beaten path, trouble always finds him. Feel bad for trouble.<br /> <b><br />Praise for Lee Child</b><br /><br /> “There’s a reason [Lee] Child is considered the best of the best in the thriller genre.”<b>—Associated Press</b><br /><br /> “This series [is] utterly addictive.”<b>—Janet Maslin, <i>The New York Times</i></b><br /><br /> “Jack Reacher is today’s James Bond, a thriller hero we can’t get enough of.

And now Reacher’s part of it...<br /><br /><b> WITHOUT FAIL</b><br /> Skilled, cautious, and anonymous, Jack Reacher is perfect for the job:&#xa0;assassinate the vice president of the United States. In theory, that is. A female&#xa0;Secret Service agent wants Reacher to find the holes in her system, and fast—because a covert group already has the vice president in their sights. And&#xa0;they've planned for everything...except for Reacher.
