A Wanted Man is a new masterpiece of suspense—from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child.

Four people are in a car, hoping to make Chicago by morning. One man is driving, eyes on the road. Another man is next to him, telling stories that don’t add up. A woman is in the back, silent and worried. And next to her is a huge man with a broken nose, hitching a ride east to Virginia.

An hour behind them, a man lies stabbed to death in an old pumping station. He was seen going in with two others, but he never came out. He has been executed—the knife work professional, the killers vanished. Within minutes, the police are notified. Within hours, the FBI descends, laying claim to the victim without ever saying who he was or why he was there.

All Reacher wanted was a ride to Virginia. All he did was stick out his thumb. But he soon discovers he has hitched more than a ride. He has tied himself to a massive conspiracy that makes him a threat—to both sides at once.

In Lee Child’s white-hot thriller, nothing is what it seems and nobody is telling the truth. As the tension rises, the twists come fast and furious, keeping readers guessing and gasping until the explosive finale.

    Library Journal

  • “Lucky listeners who are unfamiliar with previous Jack Reacher adventures by Lee Child and narrator Dick Hill are in for a treat. They will have the extra thrill of learning what Reacher is all about. To the uninitiated, Reacher may appear to be a villain who is picked up by two men and a woman while hitchhiking in the Midwest. But Reacher fans know he’s somehow involved in pursuing the greater good. Hill brings out the personalities of the men, who are killers, and the woman, a reluctant witness. His flawless performance builds tension as the listener wonders how Reacher will save the day. Hill gives his special twist to the characters, making them all a little edgier. A notable challenge, Reacher has a broken nose, which is reflected in his speech.”

    " If you're a Reacher fan you will like this. Not the best but certainly not the worse. I enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Susan | 2/10/2014

    " This was my first Reacher book. It took me awhile to get into it, and I kept feeling like I was missing something. Guess I should have started with book number one! I still found it exciting, once I got into it. If the older ones are better, I definitely need to go back and start at the beginning. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Dave | 1/20/2014

    " I liked it! Toward the end I couldn't put it down! I live in Des Moines and much of the book is set in Iowa. My only complaint with the book is that it's obvious that the author did not visit Iowa as part of his research for the book. Small complaint, because the book was a fun read! "
