Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • THE BLOCKBUSTER JACK REACHER SERIES THAT INSPIRED TWO MAJOR MOTION PICTURES AND THE STREAMING SERIES REACHER

ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: Los Angeles Times, The Guardian, Suspense magazine • Stephen King calls Jack Reacher “the coolest continuing series character”—and now he’s back in this masterly new thriller from Lee Child.


“Why is this town called Mother’s Rest?” That’s all Reacher wants to know. But no one will tell him. It’s a tiny place hidden in a thousand square miles of wheat fields, with a railroad stop, and sullen and watchful people, and a worried woman named Michelle Chang, who mistakes him for someone else: her missing partner in a private investigation she thinks must have started small and then turned lethal.

Reacher has no particular place to go, and all the time in the world to get there, and there’s something about Chang . . . so he teams up with her and starts to ask around. He thinks: How bad can this thing be? But before long he’s plunged into a desperate race through LA, Chicago, Phoenix, and San Francisco, and through the hidden parts of the internet, up against thugs and assassins every step of the way—right back to where he started, in Mother’s Rest, where he must confront the worst nightmare he could imagine.

Walking away would have been easier. But as always, Reacher’s rule is: If you want me to stop, you’re going to have to make me.

    Another GREAT book by Lee Child. Poor Reacher! He keeps getting into situations!
  • Quite the tale

    Child outdoes himself with this Reacher outing, which is further out in the middle of nowhere than usual locales. No shortage of villains — the Big Bad going nameless, only identified by hair and jeans. Intricate plot with no shortage of twists and turns. Neither Reacher nor the reader knows what he’s ultimately up against until the very end, which makes for an engrossing tale.

    I love the Jack Reacher series but this one was too bizarre. Not a good read.

    I love the way Mr. Child writes, like slow motion, especially the much anticipated fight scenes. This one doesn’t disappoint. Not for the faint of heart, kept me guessing until the end.

    Jack Reacher is the toughest, meanest, biggest harass, around and you ALWAYS want him on your side. If I had to go to war w/ just one other guy, I'd pick him.
  • Loved this
