Jack Reacher.

The ultimate loner.

An elite ex-military cop who left the service years ago, he’s moved from place to place…without family…without possessions…without commitments.

And without fear. Which is good, because trouble—big, violent, complicated trouble—finds Reacher wherever he goes. And when trouble finds him, Reacher does not quit, not once…not ever.

But some unfinished business has now found Reacher. And Reacher is a man who hates unfinished business.

Ten years ago, a key investigation went sour and someone got away with murder. Now a chance encounter brings it all back. Now Reacher sees his one last shot. Some would call it vengeance. Some would call it redemption. Reacher would call it…justice.


  • Outstanding read!

    All of the Jack Reacher books are a work of art. Mr. Child is outstanding as a writer and the books hum all the readers praises as you read through each of his books. Enjoy!

    The two stories woven into one was a bit off balance. Took a while to get used to the change offs. I give this one a C+. Thanks for the adventure!!!

    Hands down the best Jack Reacher book, in my opinion. One of those books you read and are just so into it you never want it to end. There isn’t a single dull page and it’s 100 miles an hour the whole time. Persuader is not just a book, it’s a full blown experience. Trust me, if you want to read just a truly phenomenal book that you’ll remember the rest of your life, Persuader is what you’re looking for, even if you haven’t any of the Jack Reacher books yet. Start with this one, and you’ll end up reading them all!

    First time I've ever read this type of book, and nothing compares to Child's style. I laughed a few times, and really enjoyed the flow. Jack Reacher is highly recommended!
