Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Jack Reacher returns in another fast-moving, action-packed, suspenseful book from Lee Child.
 
You can leave the army, but the army doesn’t leave you. Not always. Not completely, notes Jack Reacher—and sure enough, the retired military cop is soon pulled back into service. This time, for the State Department and the CIA.
 
Someone has taken a shot at the president of France in the City of Light. The bullet was American. The distance between the gunman and the target was exceptional. How many snipers can shoot from three-quarters of a mile with total confidence? Very few, but John Kott—an American marksman gone bad—is one of them. And after fifteen years in prison, he’s out, unaccounted for, and likely drawing a bead on a G8 summit packed with enough world leaders to tempt any assassin.
 
If anyone can stop Kott, it’s the man who beat him before: Reacher. And though he’d rather work alone, Reacher is teamed with Casey Nice, a rookie analyst who keeps her cool with Zoloft. But they’re facing a rough road, full of ruthless mobsters, Serbian thugs, close calls, double-crosses—and no backup if they’re caught. All the while Reacher can’t stop thinking about the woman he once failed to save. But he won’t let that that happen again. Not this time. Not Nice.
 
Reacher never gets too close. But now a killer is making it personal.

Praise for Personal
 
“The best one yet.”—Stephen King
 
“Reacher is the stuff of myth, a great male fantasy. . . . One of this century’s most original, tantalizing pop-fiction heroes . . . Child does a masterly job of bringing his adventure to life with endless surprises and fierce suspense.”—The Washington Post
 
“Yet another satisfying page-turner.”—Entertainment Weekly
 
“Reacher is always up for a good fight, most entertainingly when he goes mano a mano with a seven-foot, 300-pound monster of a mobster named Little Joey. But it’s Reacher the Teacher who wows here.”—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times

    I’ve read every Reacher novel and always looked forward to the next one. Unfortunately, this one was disappointing. The previous was already a little bit off the norm, but Personal told me I need to take a break from this author. Either the real Reacher returns soon , or this will be the last I read.

    Not that interesting. A kind of long and a bite boring especially in the middle

    Another great Jack Reacher story…simple& straightforward…until it doubles back on itself with crafty twists & turns

    Really enjoyable read but not quite as music a page turned as his other Reach thrillers. This is really frustrating-I have made my review and am ready to move on but my review is not long enough.
  • Great read

    Where is the short story? Bizarrely, it is part of the title but not in TOC, just a tease for newest book published half a decade after this one.
