From Publishers Weekly

At the start of bestseller Child`s solid 12th Jack Reacher novel (after Bad Luck and Trouble), the ex-military policeman hitchhikes into Colorado, where he finds himself crossing the metaphorical and physical line that divides the small towns of Hope and Despair. Despair lives up to its name; all Reacher wants is a cup of coffee, but what he gets is attacked by four thugs and thrown in jail on a vagrancy charge. After he`s kicked out of town, Reacher reacts in his usual manner-he goes back and whips everybody`s butt and busts up the town`s police force. In the process, he discovers, with the help of a good-looking lady cop from Hope, that a nearby metal processing plant is part of a plan that involves the war in Iraq and an apocalyptic sect bent on ushering in the end-time. With his powerful sense of justice, dogged determination and the physical and mental skills to overcome what to most would be overwhelming odds, Jack Reacher makes an irresistible modern knight-errant.

Review

“As I was reading this latest book, I was trying to understand why I like the Reacher series so much…The Jack Reacher books are all revenge fantasies. By the time the reader encounters the first fight, the reader is already mad… Reacher doesn`t go looking for trouble, but trouble usually finds him.”- San Francisco Chronicle

“Explosive and nearly impossible to put down.”-People

Lee Child (Lee Child) - pseudonym. Real name - Jim Grant (Jim Grant) British writer, author of popular thrillers about the adventures of the former American military police officer Jack Reacher (Jack Reacher). Born 1954 in Coventry, Central England, a huge industrial area. According to him, he had not seen a single tree until he was twelve years old. "It was a place," Child recalled, "where the sharpening and the bicycle chain were the decisive arguments." He is still ready to demonstrate his scars. After graduating from high school, Child entered law school, but since his career as a lawyer did not appeal to him, Lee spent most of his time at the student theater and, failing his final exams, got a job at the Granada television company in Manchester. Having removed a total of 40,000 hours of various materials (news, screensavers, advertisements, copyright projects, etc.), Child was fired from the company, in which he worked for 18 years, due to layoffs. As an active trade unionist, Child was not an attractive candidate for most British television companies. He became a writer because, by his own admission, other ideas did not occur to him. The first novel, The Killing Floor, 1997, won Anthony and Barry awards. In the summer of 1998, the writer moved to the United States, where he currently lives with his family near New York. He is actively involved in organizing the Association of Thriller Authors, who want to separate themselves from detective writers, but at the same time willingly take part in all kinds of detective festivals. His brother Andrew Grant also writes thrillers.  Detective. Declaration of love. , Official site .  Bibliography Series Jack Reacher - Jack Reacher 1997 - 1.
