Author(s): Lee Child
Jack Reacher, lone wolf, knight errant, ex military cop, lover of women, scourge of the wicked and righter of wrongs, is the most iconic hero for our age. This is the first time all Lee Child's shorter fiction featuring Jack Reacher has been collected into one volume. A brand-new novella, Too Much Time, is included, as are those previously only published in ebook form: Second Son, Deep Down, High Heat, Not a Drill and Small Wars, as well as every Reacher short story that Child has ever written.
"After 21 missions in 20 years no one can be in any doubt that messing up bad guys is what the ex-military policeman does best - and these 12 tall tales suggest he's been doing it all his life... Lee Child, like his creation, always knows exactly what he's doing - and he does it well. Time in his company is never wasted. The first three chapters of his next Reacher novel, The Midnight Line - due in November - leave you wanting more." -- Mark Sanderson Evening Standard "The Midnight Line...won't be published until early November. This collection of every short story Child has penned about the rootless Reacher will serve to keep any cravings at bay...True fans will love this." Irish Independent "If you ever wonder about the past of Jack Reacher - the action hero whose adventures shift millions - then get this collection of short stories. Including a new novella, the clever, twisty tales reveal that even the 13-year-old Reacher was a force to be reckoned with." Sunday Mirror
