  • "I love him. It's said that a Jack Reacher novel is bought every four seconds somewhere in the world. He is to crime fiction what Clint Eastwood's 'man with no name' was to the western. Lee Child's genius in 17 novels has been to create a tough guy hero that men will envy and women will adore."

  • "Pure escapism...He has redefined the thriller for the 21st century...Reacher is a knight errant every bit as much as Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe was. ...stunningly good."

    Henry Sutton, Daily Mirror
  • "I am no longer (if I ever was) an unbiased critic. I am more of a Lee Child fan. I am pro-Reacher, his massive but benevolent brute of a drifter, vigilante hero....I'll definitely barrel through the next one too."

    Andy Martin, Independent
  • "Smart, breathless...more ingenious than other Reacher books have been about the underground activities Reacher is thwarting."

    Janet Maslin, New York Times
  • "A fascinating, swaggeringly confident performance"
