Jack Reacher returns in the latest fast-moving, action-packed, suspenseful book from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child.

You can leave the army, but the army doesn’t leave you. Not always. Not completely, 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.

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 G-8 summit packed with enough world leaders to tempt any assassin.

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.

Reacher never gets too close. But now a killer is making it personal.

    New York Times Book Review

  • The best one yet. Stephen King
  • Reacher is the stuff of myth, a great male fantasy. . . . One of this century’s most original, tantalizing pop-fiction heroes . . . [Lee] Child does a masterly job of bringing his adventure to life with endless surprises and fierce suspense. The Washington Post
  • Yet another satisfying page-turner. Entertainment Weekly

  • “Child’s nineteenth Reacher novel keeps its loner hero busy doing the usual: busting heads, dodging bullets, figuring out angles, and avenging. The wry first-person observations are a delight.”

    RT Book Reviews (4 stars)

  • “A sniper threatens the forthcoming G8 conference, to be held at a stately manor outside London, in Thriller Award–finalist Childs’s clever, deceptively straightforward nineteenth Jack Reacher novel…Reacher’s keen analytic mind in action will entertain readers as much as the assorted physical means he uses to take down the bad guys.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Dick Hill is a terrific narrator whose resonant voice reminds listeners of every strong male in literature…Hill adds to the drama by finding well-suited and unique voices for the many operatives involved in stopping the sniper…As Hill amplifies the plot twists by using volume and pace to increase the story’s tension, his evocative presentation, along with Child’s savvy hero, creates a bodacious audio experience.”


  • “Child sets up a thriller premise better than anybody, expertly mixing gun talk, trivia, and tension and, when the time comes, detailing the bloodletting with the care of a connoisseur.”

  • A #1 USA Today bestseller
