It all started in the sleepy town of Margrave, Georgia, with a Greyhound bus and a man called Jack Reacher. This town is anything but used to excitement, and Jack knows that the minute he steps off the bus. Everything from the lights to the people to the dust looks tired, and it's the last place the ex-military operative expects to find excitement.

That's why he's shocked when not twelve hours later, he's arrested in the local diner for murder. Despite explaining that he wasn't there when it happened, he's booked into jail along with another man named Hubble, whose number he found in the victim's shoe.

Of course, that's not the end of it, and two days in jail later, Reacher is off on the adventure of a lifetime. What follows is a mix of mystery and suspense, as Reacher and his friends uncover the true killer and with it a counterfeiting ring. It's a chilling tale with many questions: Who's innocent? Who's not? Will anyone ever know for sure?

Lee Child, penname for British thriller writer Jim Grant, is best known for writing the Killing Floor series, a series of books about an ex-military policeman named Jack Reacher. Before that, he worked as a presentation director for the UK's ITV network. He also wrote a fair number of commercials, trailers, and news stories. Child has also penned a collection of short stories and other prose works both under his name and a variety of pennames. He lives in England with his wife and son.

Jack Reacher visits a town without pity in the first novel in Lee Child’s New York Times bestselling series.

Ex-military policeman Jack Reacher is a drifter. He’s just passing through Margrave, Georgia, and in less than an hour, he’s arrested for murder. Not much of a welcome. All Reacher knows is that he didn’t kill anybody. At least not here. Not lately. But he doesn’t stand a chance of convincing anyone. Not in Margrave, Georgia. Not a chance in hell.

    " These books are good for the beach, airplane or just when you want an easy pleasant read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Timothy | 2/2/2014

    " I was told to try this series awhile ago. I finally got around to it. The first book was fun, quick paced, and exciting. A quick escapist type read. I'll definitely read more of this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annie Paul | 1/30/2014

    " I don't usually read this kind of book, but it was ok. I'm not rushing out to read the rest of the Jack Reacher series/books, but I might read more in the future. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 1/26/2014

    " This is the first of the Jack Reacher novels and I read it fourth in the series. LOL My usual. It's premise is intriguing and the protaganist is very straight-forward. It's interesting how he thinks, but do military people with families really move THAT often? Not in my experience, but perhaps other services do that. In my experience, they tend to leave families in one place for longer periods of time. Nitpicking, I know, but there you are. If that's the most I can think of that seems off, then Mr. Child succeeds in creating a compelling protaganist and plot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Phillip Johnson | 1/22/2014

    " Lee Child is one of my favorite authors and his Jack Reacher character is the main reason. His writing is eminently readable and holds your interest throughout the story. Jack reacher, the main character embodies the qualities I think most people either aspire to or wish they already possessed. His attitude and willingness to put himself out there for his principles are truly inspirational. Sometimes the author may get carried away but overall Jack is one of the most interesting characters in modern action/adventure literature. Highly recommended. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andy Boroditsky | 1/17/2014

    " Not a bad detective, brutal, but in the style of old Schwarzenegger movies. A bit unrealistic sometimes (not in action, but in its "detectiveness"), so not too believable. But not boring and easy to read. Will read some more of this author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lalah | 1/16/2014

    " Doubt Mr. Child has ever been to the ATL. Ever. Still, a good book for long runs. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Russell Cardon | 11/13/2013

    " It's a fun book. Seeing the movie had me get this book. I think it's an interesting life this guy leads. He keeps things simple, even when he's killing someone. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Casey Arn | 7/12/2013

    " Well for fun light reads i have a max rule of 4 stars so 3 is pretty good. A lot of convenient things happened to make it all work, but it was a fun adventure and I'll definitely continue on with the series from time to time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike Matteson | 3/4/2013

    " Not a bad first effort. I don't mind the short, choppy sentences and first person narrative. The thing that irked me is the tendency of every character to end their sentence with the word "right?" Someone tell this British writer that we don't do that here. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Madeline Kane | 6/26/2012

    " Its they guy's version of a romance/chick lit novel. Action, sex, gore, simplisitc writing style. Not a bad book, but not the most amazing thing i've ever read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margaret Gonzalez | 9/7/2011

    " was curious about the "Jack Reacher" character, and I gave him a thumbs up. However, I must say that this is a guy's book...many people die and some in a very nasty manner. Will I read another in the series? Only if I can get the book from the library; I'll save my pennies otherwise. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Janice | 12/3/2010

    " The cover of this audio book proclaimed this to be an unabridged edition but that turned out not to be the case. There were many obvious gaps. I do plan to try book 2 due to the popularity of the Reacher series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 James Hetzel | 5/18/2010

    " Well....it's preposterous. But it was a fun read on a cold, wet Saturday afternoon. You'll learn a little about counterfeiting as a bonus. Now on to something a bit meatier. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Burhans | 12/29/2009

    " several of my friends were shocked to learn I had never read any Lee Child books. i see why. this was really well done, taunt action, believable, good hero, bad villains, plausible story-line and enough to keep you turning pages when you should be in bed. Got the rest of the series on my TBR now! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christine | 7/14/2009

    " Good book, gripped me from the start :) I'm new to the Jack Reacher novels and I can see why there was an uproar about casting Tom Cruise as Reacher, what a faux pas! Reacher is a huge presence and I thoroughly enjoyed this book! :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathryn | 6/11/2009

    " Very easy to read. What I would describe as a good summer holiday book. You don't have to think too much, the story is interesting, and it's fairly fast paced. I found the short sentences a bit annoying, which detracted from my enjoyment. Solid 3.5 stars for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Evergreen | 1/6/2009

    " Easy, fast, addictive. Perfect book to start and then find yourself staying up late to finish. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Suzie | 12/19/2008

    " I didn't love the story. It was only okay, but what really bugged me was the narrator. I didn't care for his voice. Not a good thing for an audio book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Margaret | 9/27/2008

    " A book to take with you on a vacation - a THRILLER - MYSERTY, INTRIGUE - WELL WRITTEN. There is a whole series of them - don't have to read in order. We trade them around in our Family. YOU WILL BE HOOKED! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim | 2/19/2008

    " "Jack Reacher discovers the daughter of his best military commander and a disfigured Vietnam vet who stole an identity and lived a life of crime in NYC, assisted by his hook hand." "
