"Tough, elegant, and thoughtful."--Robert B. Parker "A riveting thriller, brought to life with well-observed detail and paced with taut, evocative prose. It's a winner."--Greg Iles "A thoroughly engrossing tale told by an author who doesn't miss a beat." -- Rocky Mountain News "Child presents his tense, action-packed adventure in vivid prose, as lean and capable as his central character. Jack Reacher is not merely a terrific hero; he sets a new standard."--Tom Savage "Opens with a bang."-- Chicago Tribune "A literate scenario-cum-thriller."-- The Philadelphia Inquirer "Lee Child's knowledge of the modern military and its combat tactics amazed me. A chilling and all-too realistic story, and a damn good book."--Steve Thayer "[A] redoubtable yet romantic hero...[a] fast-paced misadventure...Cunning and explosive, it's a thumping good read."-- Time Out "Furiously suspenseful."-- Kirkus Reviews
