The edge-of-your-seat, heart-in-mouth new Jack Reacher thriller for 2020 - 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
One of the many great things about Jack Reacher is that he's larger than life while remaining relatable and believable.
The Sentinel shows that two Childs are even better than one.
I loved The Sentinel! Classic Reacher, great story. Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant. I do love the spare writing style, the descriptions, Reacher's responses to threats. Joyous stuff. I hope there will be many more Reachers to come.
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.
