The edge-of-your-seat, heart-in-mouth new Jack Reacher thriller for 2021 - his 25th adventure. No one's bigger than Jack Reacher.
Jack Reacher gets off the bus in a sleepy no-name town outside Nashville, Tennessee. He plans to grab a cup of coffee and move right along.
Not going to happen.
The town has been shut down by a cyber attack. At the centre of it all, whether
he likes it or not, is Rusty Rutherford. He's an average IT guy, but he knows more than he thinks.
As the bad guys move in on Rusty, Reacher moves in on them . . .
And now Rusty knows he's protected, he's never going to leave the big man's side.
Reacher might just have to stick around and find out what the hell's gone wrong . . . and then put it right, like only he can.
'Jack Reacher is today's James Bond, a thriller hero we can't get enough of.' Ken Follett
'If you haven't read any Jack Reacher, you have a treat in store . . . a hitchhiker without a phone, a one-man force for good.' - The Times
'A contemporary version of the knight in shining armour . . . Reacher is a mythic figure.' Literary Review
'Jack Reacher is a wonderfully epic hero; tough, taciturn, yet vulnerable... Irresistible.' People
'Jack Reacher has long since earned his prominent place in the pantheon of cool, smart-talking American heroes.' New York Times
I loved The Sentinel! Classic Reacher, great story. Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant.
The Sentinel shows that two Childs are even better than one.
The one man revenge machine seems revitalised. Great stuff.
Thoroughly entertaining . . . when the world is crumbling, it's good to have some of Reacher's brutal certainties back.
It's great to be back in Reacher's company in a world where the bad guys get what's coming to them. A smooth transition for a much-loved character.
The collaboration here produces vintage Reacher.
Reacher is satisfyingly ice cold in combat and full of good human feelings when necessary. It works.
Lots of action . . . one of the most inventive action sequences in recent memory . . . [The Sentinel] continues the series without any sense that there's now a coauthor. In a year of drastic change, fans will welcome the consistency.
Fresh, perfectly plotted, and packed with action, The Sentinel is one of the year's best, must-read thrillers . . . and proves that this series is primed to continue on at the highest level for many years to come.
The Sentinel is a butt-kicking, take-no-prisoners thriller that satisfies on every page.
From stirring novels to tender biographies, thought-provoking journalism to the books that captured lockdown, these are the titles that best reflected this extraordinary year.
