Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Child has a gift for throwing you a curve just when you think you've seen it all. Rocky Mountain News
Sparse prose and fast pacing—[One Shot] is sure to be found in many hammocks this summer. Chicago Tribune
If you're looking for a new series, this [the Jack Reacher novels] is one of the best in the thriller genre. Salt Lake Tribune
Explosive. Miami Herald
Electrifying . . . This series is utterly addictive. New York Times
Nothing is what it seems in the riveting puzzle, as vivid set pieces and rapid-fire dialogue culminate in a slam-bang showdown in the villains' lair. Publishers Weekly
Reacher's back ... gonzo action ... canny plotting, tight prose, swift tempo. Kirkus Reviews
“Hot, indomitable…knockout.” New York Times
“Unravelling and retangling violent narratives is the writer’s specialty. This is the ninth of his books to feature the drifter-investigator Jack Reacher—a hybrid of John D. MacDonald’s Travis McGee and Mickey Spillane’s Mike Hammer—and it certainly ranks in the first tier of the series. There is considerable mayhem, lovingly described…and there’s a good cast…Before it’s all, vividly, over, one feels confident that Reacher—smart, rootless, and brave—will not only get his man but make him suffer.” New Yorker
“The thing about Lee Child’s books is that you can’t put the damn things down.” Independent on Sunday (London)
“Lee Child is often mistaken for a US writer, so skilfully and enthusiastically has he embraced the idiom of the American thriller…One of the genre’s finest practitioners.” Independent (London)
“Child combines detail-building procedural style with an all-systems-go thriller narrative…Reacher can run away from most of the competition in the thriller sweepstakes.” Booklist
“The author’s best thriller in years, filled as it is with detailed procedural insight, dry wit, and page-turning disclosures.” Bookmarks magazine
